oh baby

a friend from back home in good ol' hollister, ca is expecting her fifth girl and i feel like i already know sweet nora jane. i can't wait to meet her someday! i once babysat her older sisters, and each of those little girls is uniquely delightful, so of course nora will be no less than perfect. it was so fun to be commissioned to create artwork for her future nursery! this baby will come into this world in total style, thanks to all the hard work her mother is putting into her room. 

i drew the complete artwork the old fashioned way and scanned it into illustrator, carefully tracing all the bumps and imperfections left by the sharpie to leave the hand done, illustrated feel. nora's room is woodland animal themed, so mama and i decided on a whimsical, yet classy take on some cute critters. 

you are so loved, nora jane! can't wait to welcome you to this life.
