Teeth Fairies – A Baby Teeth Tradition

18 Nov

LW_TF_page24_final_lo-res

So this was truly a dream project… I was commissioned to illustrate a book, and design a doll and keepsake box for a complete gift set for kids at that wiggly-tooth stage of life (which my little one is smack in the middle of!)

The website, www.teethfairies.com, just launched and is loads of fun – some of my illustrations have been animated, which is a first for me! According to the site: “The classic tale of the tooth fairy gets an exciting update and modern twist and helps parents with getting kids to take care of their dental health.”

I also created fun downloadable activities and colouring sheets for the website.

The complete package with book and doll will retail for $49.99 and will be available in February 2015 at amazon.com, and available for pre-order soon!

It’s fall… Time for yummy hot bevvies!

Warm up your belly with a yummy fall drink

Warm up your belly with a yummy fall drink

I love summer more than almost anything, so the first cool days of fall really bum me out… but then I’m won over by the pretty colour-changing leaves, cozy sweaters, crisp fresh mornings and ESPECIALLY yummy hot spicy drinks like Chai, pumpkin lattes, caramel apple cider, I could go on and on… but then I’d have to run out to Starbucks and never finish this post! Anyway, my wonderful client Caffé Demetre (a Toronto area chain of desserts-only restaurants) commissioned me to create a whole bunch of seasonal spot illustrations and a few of them were hot-bevvie focused so I thought I’d stick them together on some faux-plywood background, and use them as an excuse to create the girlie one above (to keep them company).

Caffé Demetre’s tempting autumn treats include Cider House Rules, Hot Couture and Chai Fall, but if you’re not in the Toronto area here are a few amazing-looking fall hot bevvie recipes to try at home. I’m leaning towards the Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate OR the Hot Caramel Apple Cider Floats… yummmm!!
