Floral Frolic : Wheat and Cotton by blix-it
Floral Frolic : Wheat and Cotton

Drawn by Cinnamoron
Painted by me! blix-it
Daniel Smith Watercolor Paint
Arches 140lb Cold Press Paper


‘Wheat and Cotton’ is one page spread from Floral Frolic! We’ve written a bit more about the creative process in this kickstarter update. <3 Please go have a look! c: 

FLORAL FROLIC IS FUNDING TOWARDS ITS FIRST BIG STRETCH GOAL!! Please consider supporting it!! ~ There are additional pages, more postcards for every physical tier, and hopefully shiny book plates in all of our near futures!

This spread was really fun actually. I picked it to paint while I visited my parents over holiday break last year. :P I always curate what I work on when I visit them …. no people art, for instance. Absolutely none unless it’s drawn only at night. Animals in a crop of wheat is a thing my parents could recognize and identify with, so it was safe to paint. (When I go home for the holiday break, I have to go home for several weeks or else the flight is too expensive. So I work a lot while there.) 

I’ve never actually seen cotton! And until just recently, Amanda hadn’t seen wheat. There were some rolling fields of it between Raleigh and Baltimore, it was a windy day, the wheat was pretty mature but still green, and Amanda couldn’t figure out how that grass was rippling and shimmering so much as it was. (The mature heads on wheat have shiny petal bits, and the top heavy grain part makes it more reactive to wind than regular field grass.)

Art stories. ^^

Floral Frolic : Queenie + Dawnsing Necklaces
MY UPDATING A MILLION TIMES ABOUT FLORAL FROLIC CONTINUES. 8DDDDD FOXES EVERYWHERE!!!

These necklaces are designed by me and Cinnamoron! I sketched, she edited, and we went back and forth until we got a thing we liked. If you'd like to see our process please read this update! c: 

Floral Frolic is a young readers' book currently funding on kickstarter! These necklaces were designed as a nice alternative to the book if you still want to help out the project but aren't wanting a picture book. <3 

Necklaces are also available on etsy (MEANING YOU CAN USE PAYPAL)!! For the duration of our kickstarter, we will also be counting our Floral Frolic related etsy sales towards our kickstarter stretch goals. 

Please help us print our book!!

Heyehey!!! ^^ Time to start uploading some art from the book I have on kickstarter!! I'm really excited for it! :boogie: Thank you to everyone from DA who has come to look at the kickstarter! Having this project launch and get half way to its funding goal within two days is such a huge relief. ;_; I can go to sleep at night and not be sobbing about it. Or maybe just ... sobbing in joy ...  Cinna and I have done so much work on this book, and we've been saving all the art for this moment to post!!!

This is the first big page spread of the book! We named it Flower Pile. It was a really important piece for me as the colorist because it was the first image of Floral Frolic that I tried to paint! And then I hated my painting of it. So I painted it a second time!! This image you see here is that second painted edition. 

Roughs, pencils, and that first painted version of this image are all available to see along with our author commentary in a backer only update on our kickstarter. You might not back a project just to see a bit of extra content, but consider also helping to get our book to print. o3o A donation of just a dollar would get you a digital wallpaper, a look at our backer only content such as this (this isn't going to be our only restricted post), and most definitely the warm fuzzy feeling of having helped us print this thing. 

Thanks for looking!! c:

Hi there! I met you at Anime Boston and bought some bookmarks! I had asked where i could buy one of the wallets you had later since I didn't have the money then, but i can't find it on your shop! Are they still available? :3

Heeeeey ~ www.etsy.com/transaction/10203…? This is the listing for the wallets. Currently they're sold out until I get them reprinted (will probably have them again in mid May) I only have maybe two of the winter wolf design left right now, and none of the others. 

So if you wanted Winter Wolf you're in luck!!!

Or if you wanted one of the other designs, I could do a preorder for you and ship it to you in mid May which is maybe 4 weeks from now?

I'm curious which design you were looking for?
