I'm really in love with my new flapper emoji drawings, so I decided to also make a couple little button packs featuring the new illustrations! There are two packs available, right here.
ps. I'm in a good mood today, so here's a random discount code that you can use -- take $5 off any order of $15 or more on my website with code "emoji" Expires 3/31/15. Happy weekend! :)

I'm one of those people who really loves to use emoji and the more I looked at them, the more I kept imagining a set of flapper doodle emoji. So I had to draw them, naturally! You can see my original sketch for the drawing on instagram, here.
I'm so smitten with how this turned out! On instagram someone suggested that I turn them into brooches and I think I might just have to do that with some of my favorites. I'm pretty sure if I made a side-eye flapper doodle emoji brooch I would be wearing it every single day.
Prints of my illustration are available right here.

Storybird just released their new app, Lark. It's a really neat poetry app that allows you to layer poems on top of artwork from the Storybird website. If you're not familiar with Storybird, it's a site where you can use existing artwork from artists around the world to illustrate your own children's books. I have pretty much all of my Flapper Doodle artwork available to use on the website and it's really fun to see how other people have used my drawings in their beautiful stories.
With Lark, you are given the option to choose from various artwork and then you're given an automatically generated selection of words from which to write your poem. You can't add your own words, but I think that's part of the fun! I probably wouldn't have come up with "waltz you magical creatures" on my own, but those were some of the words that were available to me and they fit my drawing perfectly!
One of the reasons that I'm really excited about Lark is that my illustrations were chosen to appear on four of the screens before you start creating your poems and following other awesome users. I love how perfectly the illustrations they chose fit with the page they appear on. When you aren't following any other users yet, my little flapper looks so lonely!
Lark is available to download in the app store, and if you're interested in creating a book you can check out Storybird here.

Pi Day is only a little over a week away! If you still need to stock up on Pi Day supplies (buttons, art prints, brooches and the like) my cutoff for 3/13 delivery is tomorrow, Friday March 6th*. I can't guarantee anything since the post office can be crazy and unreliable (especially with all the snow this year) but ordering by tomorrow means you *should* get your Pi Day goodies in time for the big day! Don't forget, this particular Pi Day is especially special because it's 3-14-15. And at 9:26 PM it gets even MORE special! And at 9:26:53 it's specialer still! It's going to be a pretty exciting day.
These cutie pi brooches are almost sold out (3 left) and I won't be making any more once they're gone. If you want to snatch up one of the last ones, they're in my shop here. And you can see all of my Pi Day products right here.
*Excludes t-shirts, since they have a longer turnaround time
