Hello! And a belated Happy New Year to you

Happy new year and I hope you're all well! 

 I wanted to give my blog a bit of an update and share a few recent pieces I did for my agent's promotional emails. The theme was "Hello", and as I often do, I had a lot of different ideas and characters in my sketches, and so I just went ahead and tried a few options. I gave Nicole both and asked her to share whichever one she preferred.

I'm curious which one you would choose... 

Thank you for visiting! It's always great to read your comments and I wish you all good health, peace, and a lot of fun projects ahead!


  1. Aww Shirley they are both just so delightful but my favourite is the wide that would make both the postman and recipient smile! I adore your art. Happy January my friend. Hugs xxx

    1. You are so kind, Jane, many thanks! I just swung by your wonderful blog... : )

  2. both are just to cute. would be hard to decide best one.

  3. I agree with Jane, both delightful, but loving the postcard :)

  4. Bonjour chère amie,

    Absolument charmant ! J'aime beaucoup les deux. Mais puisqu'il faut faire un choix, je vais élire la carte postale... J'aime la pointe d'humour et la simplicité du message bien visé.

    Gros bisous ��

  5. Both are charming, but the postcard would be my choice. ❤

  6. Hellooooo, dear Shirley!!! Happy 2017 and Happy Chinese New Year! What a great way to start the year. Both of these are soooo Shirleyesque adorable. It's hard to choose, but I may have to say the postcard gives me the happy feels the most. :) And woooooooo!!! Congrats on your wonderful, beautiful, fantastic book! It looks fantastic, and teaching kids math is great, great, great! I'm so glad that all your hard work and travels paid off and not only brought you a great opportunity, but some great relationships as well. You ROCK! Enjoy your weekend. Sending you huge hugs!
