The newest in my Freshwater Lake Series is Lake Winnipegosis which is located in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It has entertaining lesser known alternate spellings of Lake Winipigoos or Winipigis which were once more commonly used!
A full size version of the map is displayed on They Draw & Travel if you follow this link (or click on the map image below to be transported!).
The next in my hand-lettered Freshwater Lake Series is Reindeer Lake. At the South end is Deep Bay, which according to local legends is the home of a monster that pulls animals through the ice to eat them during the winter! It’s name is possibly just “Deep Bay Monster” which is kind of lackluster – I think it deserves a super cool name like some of Canada’s other cryptozoological wonders 🙂

I’m taking art Bootcamp again this year, super fun and challenging! March’s project brief was to create a 1920s inspired adult coloring book concept which started with a mini project of drawing 20s hairstyles. For my project I decided to take it in a bit of a different direction and researched how Halloween was celebrated in the 1920s which was very interesting! I present to you “Halloween in the 1920s,” a coloring book 🙂 You can check out the full gallery of artists’ work here.
The next in my illustrated Freshwater Lake Map Series is Lake Superior which is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area! It has some very interestingly named islands – Pie Island is my favorite (wouldn’t it be amazing if it was full of bakeries that specialized in the most amazing pies? Yum!) In addition to hand-lettering all the interesting names of places it consisted of, I couldn’t help but include small hints of the flora that grow around the Lake 🙂

The next in my hand-lettered Freshwater Lake Map Series is Great Bear Lake which is located in the Northwest Territories in Canada! It has a really interesting shape and is the largest lake located fully in Canada. It also has a lot of “arms” 🙂

I’ve been working on a Freshwater Lake Map Series that is fully hand-lettered and showcases all the lovely locations that make up and are part of each lake 🙂
This is the first of the series I’ve posted – Lake Erie which you can find the full size of on the lovely They Draw & Travel website here!
The best of wishes to everyone in this holiday season and a happy new years!
A new pattern inspired by after school snacks and hungry tummies! I wanted this to be a fun colorful layout that used a limited palette. I had a lot of fun reminiscing for inspiration! This is now available for sale in my Spoonflower shop 🙂 Sample swatch image shows the pattern printed on the lovely new Poly Crepe de Chine.
Some great news – My Blue Ribbon pattern placed in the top ten for Spoonflower’s State Fair themed competition a week and a half ago! Spoonflower always takes the most lovely photos of the winning fabrics so I’m sharing some great shots they took below. I love how vibrant the colors look! The fabric is now for sale in my shop here 🙂
