Prints for

I am now making prints to benefit animals in need! This is the first one in the series. His name is Sammy. The real Sammy lives in Ottawa and needs a very expensive operation. $5 from the sale of every print of Sammy will go directly to his rescue. Please visit the link and pass it on. Let's get Sammy better!

New prints!

I've added a few new animal prints to my shop! Which animal should I do next?

Driving Traffic

In an effort to drive more traffic to my shop, I've decided to list my magnets and pins individually. I only have a few of them left anyways, so I figure its a good way to liquidate at the same time. I'll keep you posted on how it goes...

Let the parade of custom pet portraits begin!

Ever since having my Custom Pet Portrait listing featured on Etsy Finds, I've been a busy bee drawing into the wee hours of the night! Here are just a few of the ones that I recently made! I really love making these since each one is so different and has its own set of challenges.

Thursday, October 21, 2010

This character was the star of a video I made for Atelier V. Recently I put him in various holiday costumes to be sent out in emails and the like.

This was a fun project to do!

Commissioned Piece came from the last one, Part 2

This one was a loooot of fun to do. This family has 7 cat (yes 7!), 1 who recently passed away, and a dog. I had a lot of fun planning out who would go where. 
These portraits are fun to do and I can wait to get more commissions!

Commissioned Piece came from the last one

I posted the last family portrait on facebook and it got some attention. My soccer teammate wanted one of her family, so I came up with this! I think i'm going to add a listing to etsy for custom family portraits since they are so much fun to do!

Comic style greeting cards

So I think I'm just going to leave the speech bubbles blank so that you can fill in your own message! Here is a new style that could be for birthdays.. or any other gift giving occasions. The colors may need to be darkened though.. what do you think? 

Thursday, September 30, 2010


I've been designing a new line of retro cards. Here's the one for Christmas. I was thinking about putting in those kids (less rough version of course), but ultimately they got nixed. 
Any thoughts or comments on the new look? Things can still be changed before I send them to the printer.

Self Portrait

I made a new self portrait yesterday. Like most of my stuff these days, I used some textures to balance out the clean cartoony feel. I also decided to try framing it. Fun look I think :)

New Video!

As some of you may or may not know, my day job is as a Motion Designer. I am currently freelancing for AtelierV where I made this nifty little video which explains how they operate. Original idea by Mathieu Lavoie and Anouk Azuelos, Design and Animation by yours truly, Joanna Goldman (a.k.a SkribblyKids).

Watch the Video Here:

I made this drawing for my soccer carpool girls. They drove me around all summer, so this is my way of saying thanks!
I decided to go with what i've been doing these past few months and use a ton of different textures. I like juxtaposing the clean cartoon look with the grungy textures.
