Works in Progress


Good Morning everyone!

I just wanted to share with you a few of the illustrations I have been working on.  I have no idea what they will be used for…… journal pages, cartoons, future projects, sketches for future projects?


Here’s a tribal face and a jellyfish.  Supplies used: Copic Markers, micron pens, gel pens, paint pens and pencil crayons. I had bought some new art supplies and wanted to test them out.



I was inspired by the little creatures Teesha Moore has been creating in her journals and so decided to make a few of my own. I can’t tell you how much fun i’ve been having!  I was sitting and watching TV drawing away!  Fun!


This will be the last reminder to enter to win a spot in LIFE BOOK 2015!  You will be able to enter over 20 times on the different artist’s Blogs.

Good Luck everyone!

Love, Violette xo

    Life Book 2015 Blog giveaway!



    I am sooo jazzed, excited and honoured to be a part of Tamara Laporte’s Life Book 2015!  I met Tam several years ago online and became a member of her Ning forum.  I loved Tam’s artistry but even more so her deep authentic and caring nature.  I resonated with her back then and still do today. So I’m super duper happy that Tam asked me to be one of the teachers this year. There’s an incredible line up of instructors for you to learn from! Woo hoo! This is such an amazing opportunity……………and the goodness goes on for a whole year!

        Don’t they look sweet hanging on this clothesline?

        So in order to enter the contest please leave me a message here – just answer the question:  What online or live creative classes are you enjoying now or if you’re not taking anything what are you doing to fill the creative well up right now?

        I’ll draw one lucky winner next Friday August 22 at 9 an PST.

        Good Luck!

        Just to let you know Mr. G and I will be gone for 2 weeks – going to my favourite place – the Sunshine Coast of B.C. to relax, kayak and play in the sun.  I’ll be posting photos periodically here and on Facebook!

            June Birthday Contest Giveaway!


            Hooray!  I’m finally having the giveaway! It’s a giveaway to celebrate my birthday – turning 60 and also to thank you so much for following my blog for all this time!


            There will be three prizes in total!


            One prize is for a print of your choosing of my #60in60 cartoons – you let me know which print you want.  The print is approximately 5 x 5 – it doesn’t come with the frame. You also win a blank art journal with my art on the front – “Be who you are” – the smooth cardstock pages inside are suitable for art journaling!


            The next prize is basically the same only the cover of the blank art journal has another image of my work “Be true to you”. So you get a lovely blank art journal and a print of your choice.


            The third prize is a t-shirt with my cartoon “You are a Spiritual Being having a human experience” ladies size large – in the photo i am wearing a size large.


            So in order to be entered into the contest please leave me the answer to this question in the comment section below:

            Because my 60 in 60 cartoons have become so popular I am thinking of making them into something to sell – please let me know what you think i could make them into to easily share with others – book, greeting cards, prints, magnets ????


            I will draw 3 winners names on Tuesday morning June 24th at 8 am PST. 

            Thank you and good luck everyone!
