Drawn to the West: Illustrated cards
I grew up writing letters to my grandmother on hand-made stationery I produced by photocopying my favorite horse photos, cutting them out, taping them on blank paper, and photocopying the whole ensemble.
Now, I’m thrilled to share with you a more grown-up version of my hand-made stationery.
These illustrated post & note cards feature some of my favorite creatures and plants. I drew them all on-location, in the sketchbooks I’ve been filling for over a decade. Choose between vibrant color or classic black-and-white, all printed on sustainably sourced paper…or don’t choose, and get a grab bag I’ll select for you!
Love the idea of an illustration, but don’t see the exact one you want?
Maybe you have a specific plant or animal you’d like illustrated. Maybe you have a special landscape, scene, or even a building or object in mind.
NO problem! Send me your reference photographs (no more than 3), and I will create a unique pen-and-ink drawing, with or without watercolor added (your choice!).
Get in touch, and we’ll talk size, style (sketchy or precise), color vs. black-and-white, etc.!
Using quality materials makes sketching a little bit easier, because these materials are designed to produce visually appealing drawings.
That’s why I stock art-quality materials. I’ve already consolidated them into two kits full of the same materials I use when I’m sketching in the woods, in my garden, or abroad. I also offer a sketching basics guide and curate a list of reference and inspiration books.
