The fox cub throw pillow arrived just in time for our sister’s birthday this week. She sent us this photo of the finished 20 x 14 pillow.

It came out really well, she reports. It’s pretty wild seeing Micron 05 fine point pen lines enlarged to this size thanks to a high res scan.

We got these cards with a bee on them and have been sending them out on birthdays with the terrible pun “happy bee-day” inside. We need to touch up the source image, clean faint noise out of the white area, and upload a new source image to the printer, but they look pretty neat.

The latest 9×12 Mags portrait may or may not get stars in the background. We need to practice stars first. Here she is in a temporary frame for safe keeping. Sorry about getting the ceiling fan in the shot oops.

We picked up a few 8×10 frames and mats for our 6×8 drawings. Here is a 6×8 version of an 8×10 puma drawing we did last year.

The frames are “country red” which means sort of reddish brown, with black mats. Here is puma framed.

Wayne Static got himself a frame, along with a few others we will photograph before listing for sale.

We’d like to find something similar for our 9×12’s but then shipping becomes a problem. These 8×10’s are LARGER than 8×10 on the outside edge, obviously, so they just fit in a medium flat rate Priority Mail box or the Fed Ex equivalent. A 9×12 piece of paper fits in one of these, but once you figure in the outside edge of the frame, the box is too small. So then you jump up into a more expensive shipping tier. If you have any brilliant solutions to shipping 9×12 framed art, send us a message please!

Until then, happy sketching!
