Moving on

Hello! Looks like I've completely abandoned this blog eh? Well, yes, I did, but for good reason. My husband and I have begun to start a business selling letterpressed cards and stationary. As one would expect, my drawing attention has shifted over to our new project. If you wish to continue to follow my art making, you can join our other blog here:

Of course, I'll still be doing other projects and will not turn down a drawing commission, so I'll keep this blog going, though my posts will be far and few.

And, speaking of other projects, this very large drawing was recently finished! It's a trade for my friend who will be making the Darling Press website. This drawing is definitely my biggest achievement thus far. From start to finish (with life getting in the way, i.e. having a baby, buying a home) the whole thing took me 3 years to finish. It's not the biggest I've ever made, but the most work put into a drawing; a proud accomplishment indeed.

I hope you all are doing well, and I promise to check on you often.

I'm back in the saddle again! (Drawing 52 & 53)

Marriage = over! Well, not saying it was canceled or I was snubbed at the alter, the wedding has come and gone, and was beautiful. I am now signing my art as "Alia Hoffman."

Now that I have accomplished this:

It's time to get drawing again.

Here's a few that I've finished so far:
for Pigeon Toe Ceramics.

Part of a series.

Drawing at a standstill

Dear small group of followers and those who are waiting for a drawing from me,
I'm terribly sorry that I've been absolutely stagnant with drawing progress. My wedding is almost a month away and it's literally taking all of my free time. In order to have an awesome wedding, we decided to make most of the favors/decorations/etc., and that takes much work. Thankfully it's all going well.
I also ran out of paper, and for some reason, I haven't made it to the art store to pick more up.

I promise that after September, I will be in full swing again and will not let anyone down.

Thanks for being so patient!
Yours Truly,

Day 50 & 51

Dogs. I'm not sure I'll ever get sick of drawing them.

Day 48 & 49

Another nest, this time with specifically requested eggs and feather.
Instead of tearing out a page in my sketch book, I drew another. Here's how it turned out.

Day 46 & 47

More nest and more commissions. Trying my best to keep on truckin'.

Day 44

This drawing is for a friend of mine. Photoshoped the details of her baby shower onto it, and it make a great invitation. (ahem, if I do say so myself)
