Tweed Fox gets a hat

I made myself, well, my blog, a little hat. Something pretty for it's upper parts. Otherwise known as a header.  :)  I wanted something cute, crafty, cut-and-paste and sketchy, but still simple.  I've been experimenting with digital collages lately. It's actually a really fun "medium" to work with.  

What do you think of the new header?

If you'd like my help making headers or want me to design you one, let me know. I really enjoy doing it!

IF: You better layer up! it's 6 degrees outside!

Lately the weather has been an absolute tease. It was about 60 degrees on Saturday (NY). And now it's turned to only 6 degrees at night. Totally unfair! I just got back from Chicago and it didn't even snow! I was looking forward to some real Windy City storms (as long as it didn't interfere with my plane ride back of course, haha).. but nothing. It was quite warm actually.

Anywhoo... I was chilly as I was drawing this, coloring it, and now I'm chilly as I am posting this. Make sure to wear as many layers as possible!

She's got a felted cloche hat with feathers, a green scarf, a yellow dress, a teal skirt, 
a purple and pink striped button-down shirt, an orange cardigan, 
something that looks like a blue "Members Only" Jacket (haha), purple leggings, 
grey knee-high socks, orange frilly socks and T-strap mary janes. I'd say that's a good start!

IF: Silly Fox, Rabbit's already HAVE Bunny Ears!

This is my first official post as the tweed fox! This is now my official Illustration blog!
My old blog will be strictly crafts and recipes.

I hope that you'll stick around for more! :)

Sketched this out for IF during a lull at work yesterday.
I couldn't wait to draw it out better, so that's what happened last night and most of today!
I say two in a sweater is better than one. More warmth!

And this is my sketch. :)

Rabbits and Foxes are my favorite animals. i couldn't decide which one to draw in a sweater, so i figured I'd draw them both!
