What I love most about the print above is the expression of the cat in the top left hand corner. He just looks so supercilious and filled with his own importance. Typical cat really. Wonderful.
Christina creates art from a secret hideout in the “Great White North.” Her palette for artistic endeavors was creatively shaped by myriad of inspirations as a kid, everything from familial stories of escaping a war ridden country to playing with paper cutout dolls.
Since 2007, she has illustrated for hundreds of editorial publications and commercial clients across North America and Worldwide. Her works appear in group exhibitions and have achieved recognition in both Communication Arts & Applied Arts annual awards. You can view her illustration portfolio // here //
Besides creating art for a living, Christina is also the founder of drawingfordollars.com; an online resource to educate aspiring illustrators about how to start their own freelance business.
I think because I can't draw worth a damm, I am always slightly in awe of those who can. So anything that help artists to make money from their own unique talents should always be applauded and encouraged.
