Friends: Graduation Kids Clipart

Among other projects I’ve been working on, I kinda wanted to do a set of clipart of the Friends wearing caps and gowns.  Its been about a month and a half since I first sketched out what they would look like, but I was so busy working on other products that it kind of got left behind.  Oh yeah, and of course, Julie and I went to Key West for a week for a much-needed vacation!The graduation kids were fun to draw.  However, coloring became a challenge – …

Time To Get Started

OK – I finally have time to start being a clip-artist!  With Christmas now behind us and another 5 days with no kids bugging me, I’m able to take the time to get everything organized to start the business.  I had already put the logo together a couple of weekends ago and had set up the new website, along with “stores” on both Teachers Pay Teachers and Etsy, so there’s no excuse.I’m starting with Shapes – basic ones at first, in order to get a feel for the …
