Preemie Signs featuring The Seacats


How cute is this? I decided I need to add to my Seacats line, so I added these preemie signs to my online store recently!

And if you need it in pink, no problem! = )

I am working on a new Seacats book, but with my novels and a commissioned book coming up, my pace is kind of slow. I will let you know as I progress, though!

Thanks for dropping by!

More Than I Can Bear Wash Your Hands Baby Door Signs

MORE THAN I CAN BEAR Wash Your Hands Baby Door Sign 

Many people have been requesting that the More Than I Can Bear car seat sign be turned into a home / door sign. And since I got a little bit of extra time this week (I wrote two novels this summer —whew!), I got it done!

People generally want this for day care centers, hospitals or their nursery door. The sign measures 5.2 x 7.2 inches, is laminated and durable! Oh, and of course, handmade in Alaska, USA! Click here to check it out, and while you're there, take a look around! =)

More to come — stay tuned!

Still Evolving

For those who don't know, I started drawing Seacats when I was nine. They are over 20 years old, and I'm um ... barely any older.

I drew Seacats on everything. I drew them in grade school. I drew them in middle school, I drew them in high school. I drew them in class, I drew them in journals, I drew them in year books, I drew them on my hands. And other kids were still so impressed they asked if I drew or traced them.

Yeah, I used a pencil to trace this onto my hand. Okay....

I lied, I don't usually draw with a pencil. Ink, baby, ink.

Luckily, as an adult I'm never asked that silly question. Like I can imagine some art director for XYZ Publishers calling me up — "Hi, is this Chrissy? I'm looking for an artist and I saw your portfolio online. Did you really draw that, or did you trace it?"

Yeah, that would never happen. At least, it hasn't, after nearly a decade in business.

Anyway. I drew them. I painted them. I etched them. I watercolored them. My dad still has a room full of my old Seacat stuff.

They look really different now. More professional for sure. But they're still the same, really.

I'm working on some new Seacat projects. I thought I'd share some line art here. I'm trying to get Izzy Bell to complement Timmy just a bit more. Very minor changes, but they're still there. They're pretty close, but still evolving. You can see their evolution here and follow them on Facebook here.

Archetype Graphics Design




Not sure if I ever mentioned it but I was fortunate enough to be trained by the former Senior Art Director at Apple Computer (now Apple, Inc.) — Mr. Phil Raymond! After I graduated from college, he gave me a graphic design job at his ad agency, where he trained me in advertising, corporate identity, and where I sort of just fell into illustration.

Luckily I didn't break anything.

After I started my illustration business, he went freelance as well and we've been keeping in touch  and even collaborating on projects ever since!

We talk often about business, books and completely random stuff like why it's called "history" instead of "herstory".

Yeah, I don't know where I come up with this stuff.

He's worked with some really big names: Apple, NOAA, University of Alaska and more. If you need a talented designer or woodworker, you can reach him at 907.385.0496 or check out more of his pieces on his Facebook page! In addition to logos and brochures, he makes amazing furniture and custom photo frames!
