I have been invited by Red Flower to their store in the NoLita neighborhood of Manhattan, to create greeting card art in the store. The boutique, which sells their own lightly fragranced body and home products derived from locally-sourced organic flowers and plants, likes to organize events with NYC-based creative types and businesses. Gimme Coffee will also be there offering free samples!

That day, I will work on hand-drawn cards on-location and have already-created cards, journals, art, and more for sale. I would love it if you’re able to stop by to enjoy the experience with me! I have been a fan of Red Flower’s products for a while, so it’s a real treat to be invited for this event. I’m a little nervous since I have never tried anything like this before, but I’m excited to share some the ideas that the invitation has inspired.

Event hours and location:

Sunday, September 6; 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Red Flower
13 Prince Street (near the corner of Elizabeth Street)
New York, NY 10012

I’ve posted two new original illustrations in The Nancydraws Shop as part of the “Love, New York” series.

Like the others in this group, I plan to create multiple original drawings based on the same designs as they sell, but I also offer prints at a lower price. Its a little experimental as far as how most people relate to buying original art v. prints made from an original piece. Each original is unique in subtle ways; the color and line work vary slightly since I draw and color them at different times. The prints are based on only one of the originals.

I have enjoyed many barbecues and lovely parties.

This illustration is another from M.E.’s backyard; once I had noticed the previous one
I started looking around to see what other interesting things her neighbors kept in or near their windows.
Some artistic license was taken, of course.
