Anyone who truly know me knows that there is one word that I have a love/hate relationship with. What is that word you ask? It's plain and simple. Doodie. Probably not what you were expecting. I hate when I hear people say it, but when I do hear it I can't stop laughing! I dont even like it when it's used out of context, for example "it's my duty to be a good citizen". I am even dreading the day I get a notice about jury duty in the mail. I dont know if I'm more concerned about having to spend the day at a court house, or actually having to say that d-word in front of my boss. I really don't think I could do that without laughing like a 10 year old! Regardless, I would like to introduce to you my newest character...Mr. Doodie!

Ok, so I finally grasped the whole making patterns thing in Illustrator! It might come as a surprise that an illustration major, who has had a good 10 years working in Illustrator, could not for the life of her figure out how to create seamless vector patterns! I have always struggled with this, watching countless tutorials, and seeking help from friends. But one day last week while I was on Pinterest, it crossed my mind to do a search for a tutorial. I came across this awesome tutorial and in no time I was creating patterns! Naturally I spent the rest of that night, and the majority of the week playing around and creating patterns! Here are a few of the ones I made!
I guess you can say I went a little pattern happy. I was just so excited that I finally figured this out, that I couldn't stop making them! There is also a possibility that I might use a few of these patterns as backgrounds in some future illustrations.

Our 1st wedding anniversary was a few days ago on April 27th, but I still wanted to post a little anniversary doodle I made. I started first by creating the flowers, then I changed everything to our wedding colors to make it a little more personal, threw a border around it, and made it into a little anniversary card!
