Is blogging dying?

Hi my dear friend!

I have to admit I was really bad and was not in the mood of writing my usual Wednesday's posts. I was even considering to stop with this blog and make a static web site... and then... this email arrived to my mailbox yesterday:

Is Blogging Dying? This is What I Think! by Mayi Carles

So, no I am not deleting this blog, I am not making a static web site, I am keeping this blog but will consider to do some changes so I can include my portfolio and display my products a bit better.

I was not active for a really long time so would like to share some of the projects I was working on during this long period.

LOGO AND A BUSINESS CARD DESING

I was really honored when a girl from a community I was leading while living in Doha - QatART,  asked me to create a logo for her small business. She wanted to have an illustration of an animal meerkat and to be cheerful and colorful. So I started with some sketches and once she decided on a sketch and a color palette I made an illustration and hand calligraphy for her logo. She also asked me to design her business cards. So here is my process, hope you will enjoy it :)

Another project were two personalized hand painted cloud pillows, which are great as a decor in a kids rooms.

1ST BIRTHDAY

I couldn't resist to make a little painting for my niece's first birthday, and I've also created a birthday card with that illustration and her older brother (4yo) wrote her name on a piece of paper which I turned into vector and added to the card.

After posting the illustration on my social media I was asked to do a toy so I made a toy as well and I love it, I love all about this little unicorn Luci :D

Than my dear friend gave birth to a little baby girl Tilda and I painted her bodysuit with the same unicorn. 

Hope you enjoyed my projects. Please feel free to ask anything in a comment section bellow or post a comment on my Facebook Page or Instagram. And if you are shy I am always here to answer your email so send any question you like to ask at cherubins3@gmail.com

Sending you my smile with love,

Christmas/Holiday collection

Hello!
I had a very productive two weeks and still continuing to work without stopping. It makes me so happy and my days are too short for everything I would like to do and make!!!

Can't wait to show you my latest illustrations I made for my Christmas/Holiday collection. I know I am a bit late and that makes me nervous but hopefully this week everything will be ready and then next week I am participating in an Art and Food Bazaar where I am going to show my work for the first time to Cracow audience :D I am planing to make a collection which will include cards, prints and gift tags.
Fingers crossed!!!

Next painting was made for special order from one friend in Doha to another in Finland :D
Idea for the painting came from a client. I so love when my clients are so cleaver!!!

Another little painting I finished last week I am donating to the International Women Association Krakow (IWAK) for auction and all funds will go to "Przedzkole specjalne Nr.100" located in Nowa Huta (it is a special institution dedicated in supporting the development of children with special educational needs -www.wboxi.com/site/przedszkole100.pl).

I called this painting "Let's make the world a better place" because it is showing how the elephant is taking a good care of a little bird. And look at the little ladder for a bird to be able to climb to the bird's house :D

And I want to show you this as well, if you are not following me on Facebook or Instagram then you probably haven't seen it. My client sent me this photo of a bear which is made of her daughter's first clothes including my hand painted body suit I've painted especially for her before her daughter was even born. The bear is made by Krpancek.
