My #MATSholidaycard submission. My husband and I have been watching a lot of Christmas movies lately. Everyone of them has someone flying off to the North Pole in a sleigh. I envisioned Santa sending his sleigh around to pick us up, complete with a blanket and steaming mugs of dark chocolate and peppermint hot cocoa to warm us. You’re never to old to believe in love, Santa Claus, his magical sleigh and the North Pole! BTW Rudolph is on vacation in Florida so Comet’s filling in while he’s on vacation. Hang on!

Folktale Week - Paul Bunyan and Magic Owl

It was fun participating in Folktale Week 2018. Day One Prompt - Forest: Paul Bunyan was a giant 40 foot tall lumberjack with superhuman strength, who cut and logged forests with his trusted companion Babe the Blue Ox, across Wisconsin and Michigan. Its been said that Paul, who was born in the state of Michigan (amongst many other states claims) dug holes and filled them with water so that he and Babe could bathe. These holes became the Great Lakes.

Day’s Two and Seven Prompts - Magic and Owl: All the animals in the forest feared the Owl believing her to be full of wisdom and magical powers. They believed that a sample from her magic pot would give them strength, courage and prosperity. After sipping the mixture and listening to the Owl’s wise advise, the animals went away feeling completely changed as if something magical and happened to them. Little did they know, the magic pot was filled only with a mixture of herbs, nuts and vegetables. It was listening to the Owl’s advise that really made them think differently about themselves. The Magic Owl story was written an illustrated by me, Maggie Summers. #folktaleweek #folktaleweek2018 #childrensbookillustration

In with the New!

I'm very excited to have my new website live.  Now I can focus on creating new quality illustration content.  It's great to turn over a new leaf and start fresh isn't it?  Below are three colorways of a personal piece inspired by my love for memorabilia and collections. The last colorway didn't make the cut to my website but I do like the lavender and white. What do you think? Different strokes for different folks right?
