Squirrel's Acorn - WIP

These are my work in progress squirrels. Trying different paper and different colour settings to get the right shade of brown. The one on the right was printed on glossy photo paper, but using really light colour settings, and the one on the left was on matte photo paper using the original colour settings. Colour-wise, I like the one on the right. But I like the paper texture on the left.

I shall work on these a bit more when I get more time this weekend.

Sticker Paper

We've been buying a few different types of inkjet paper for our prints. Some of them are sticker paper. I've been printing out a few stickers. I'm usually not a fan of glossy paper, but for stickers it looks good.
These are Dan's awesome character designs. On top is a witch from his Halloween Monster collection, and the rest are his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle characters redesigned.

Etsy Shop

We have opened our own Etsy shop!
Our first set of products is bat magnets designed by my husband. They've been selling like hotcakes. The first set sold out within minutes of posting it online.
The second set was posted just yesterday and it's almost sold out already. Our ultimate favourite is those albino bats. They're so funny looking! There's only one left at the moment. Be quick!

My Boys

I came across this photo while I was digging through an old folder. I love it. These are my favourite boys, and they're enjoying their favourite activities. Dan - reading, and Vern - sleeping. This was at Dan's parents' cabin in WA. It's so cold there in winter!
