Eons and ages and eras upon a time ago (otherwise known as June 2012), I hosted a giveaway for a custom illustration of a reader on the vintage pattern envelope of her/his choice. I had originally promised 6-8 weeks for completion...
And then things got a little stressed around here and then much more stressed and me and the little one were sick for eight months and we had hospital trips and I had surgery and... then we got better and I realized I needed to dig up the giveaway art and finally get it done.
Made up in this wild 70s-esque fabric:
With an orange ranunculus flower pinned in her hair.
I also chose to draw her on her bicycle, as I always love vintage pattern illustrations featuring props and I thought it would suit her style.
Better late than never.
