At the beginning of the year the magazine, Cloth Paper Scissors had a readers' challenge called "Make Mine Mini". Readers had to submit a piece of artwork no bigger than 4"x4" in size. My art was one of the 40 plus chosen to be published in the May/June issue of the magazine!

I have to be honest, I am over the moon about this! This little critter is something I have loved creating and the background is so fun and colorful. This 4"x4" piece of art is the style I enjoy making most. Having it chosen out of the hundreds submitted feels like a huge validation. I know I'm on the right path for my art. This is also quite the motivation to keep creating! I've been trying my best to continue sketching every day. Once April is over I hope to get some larger pieces done and maybe get an Etsy shop opened! Here are a few other things I've been doing.

I'm sorry but I think the Tutu Hippo is too too cute! Sketching what I want, just for me, is very freeing.

Until next time!



  1. You are such an inspiration!! I am thrilled beyond words for you. I was so excited to get my issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors and flip to page 84 & see your sweet little critter, love those eyes!!
    Congratulations again on the first of many publications to come!

    1. Thank you so much, Debbie! I can't squander the motivation this has brought to me so I can get into more magazines in the future!

  2. I'm so excited for you Lynda, you seem to be on fire lately and creating some really great stuff. A look that is all your own. I can't believe your work isn't on Etsy yet, it will most definitely sell. Wishing you all the best in your future publications which are sure to come. :)

    1. Thanks, Cheryl! I'm hoping to do Etsy soon. In a few months my son will be in school full time. Once that happens I will have more time to devote to a shop!
