drawn and painted

We're eagerly awaiting the fall pattern illustrations from Dan today. I approved sketches a couple of weeks ago and, as always, he did a terrific job. Still, it's always exciting to see the final painted versions. I'm consistently amazed at the detail he paints in such small scale.

Since it was a beautiful warm and sunny weekend, Tsia and I found a nice grassy place under a tree today and parked ourselves for a little magazine reading. We were pleasantly surprised to see more of Dan's work in the two issues of High Five she happened to be reading.

Sadly, he wasn't so well represented in my old copy of Vogue. Maybe I'll switch my reading selection, after all.


  1. Dan? You wouldn't happen to mean Dan
    Andreassen, would you? Because the artwork on your patterns reminded me of his work. That would be great. I knew him many many years ago (1980s) and I'm sure he would not remember me, but I look for his work everywhere.

  2. Can't wait to see the automn patterns...

  3. I can't wait to see the new designs! Your envelope designs are such an appealing part of our whole business. :) Have a good week!

  4. I'm so excited! Can't wait!

  5. I love the images that Tsia is pointing to... so soft and subtle - his artistry is clearly evident in your pattern designs.

    Also - I'm admiring the blanket!

  6. Can't wait to see the new designs. Any chance you will ever make patterns for bigger kids? K, I mean me.
