Animal Crossing | New Illustrations

Happy 2021, everyone! I’ve been slowly removing myself from posting on Instagram – I haven’t posted anything since the holidays and I don’t even miss it. Is anyone else moving in that direction?

I’ve stil been playing a lot of Animal Crossing, and here are some illustrations I’ve done so far in 2021 – myself & Poppy, and Pavé from Festivale! If you’ve been following me a long time, you may know my first logo during college was a peacock – so when Pavé arrived I knew I had to dig up that old logo and make it into Pavé.

Merry & Bright

Hi everyone! I’m a few days late in posting this (but like…it seems appropriate for 2020) but I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I am personally looking forward to 2021 so much, as I’m sure we all are.

These were my holiday cards this year, one of only a few things I actually created this year. I look forwards to making these each year and I had a lot of fun with this one – especially the color scheme:

I plan to welcome 2021 quietly with some champagne, cheese and cozy Animal Crossing :) Are you going to be celebrating the New Year? What are you most looking forwards to?

Animal Crossing | Fall Pattern

First of all, I have to say it – THANK GOODNESS BIDEN/HARRIS WON! Like most people I know, I feel as though I can take a little sigh of relief, though I know the real work will begin in January. My inspiration these past few months has been nonexistent, thanks in part to stress and anxiety about the election.

Animal Crossing has been my escape, both playing and consuming content. This little fall illustration/pattern was inspired by all the fall “mush” items available in Animal Crossing:

What’s your favorite item so far in Animal Crossing? I’m in love with the Mush Lamp and Hyacinth Lamp :)

Illustration | Fall Pin-ups

Who else is READY for cooler weather and the promise that halloween is just around the corner? THIS GIRL!

I haven’t been working on any costumes since March, but I have been drawing more. I found an old sketch from a few years ago of a fall witch, so I updated it just in time for the season change :)

I also worked on a little Pumpkin Patch gal – I swear I am LIVING for warm and cozy colors lately!

What is your favorite thing about fall? For me it’s being lucky enough to live somewhere where the leaves change color, and being able to wrap up in layers :)

Cosplay Breakdown | Princess Wario

Hi all! I’m so excited to share my latest cosplay, and first original design ever, Princess Wario! I came up with this idea after being stumped on what to bring to PAX East. I’ve debuted all of my Nintendo Princesses at PAX (Rosalina, Peach, Daisy), and one day I sketched out a concept for Princess Wario, in the style of Peach and Daisy. Here we go!
