Hey, this is going to be a quick blog that I will come back to update every few months.
I wanted to pop in and show off some of the art Gabi, the creator of my mascot – the digital mouse called Baby – has made for me these last months. I can’t stress enough how much I love her work. I highly recommend her. It’s a pleasure to work with her – I mean clearly because I keep coming back lols. As I continue working with her in the future, I want this blog to become a showcase of her talents and a portfolio of all the work she has done for my website.
You can find her Instagram here.
You can find her Sketchmob here.
You can find her Behance here.
You can email her on firstname.lastname@example.org for commissions.
To quickly explain why I have a mouse for a logo and mascot – here is my logic. So, I end all my blogs with this little liner “Thank you so much for reading and I will see you in a click!”
Reading = book
It just makes sense to me. I then very clearly fell in love with this adorable little digital mouse and named her Baby.
My Goodbye Picture
I basically couldn’t decide between this picture and the logo picture and wanted both. I decided to put it at the end of my blog but I can promise you, I will eventually have Gabi make me something special for the end of my blogs. It’s on the list.
You probably see this adorable little wave on every page you click on all over my website. I’m raising Baby to be super well mannered and she greets you every single time with a cute little wave.
Furbabies Family Photo
Our first non-mouse piece together! I really wanted to have a family photo of all the furbabies but I accepted reality and realized I would never in a million years get them to all take a picture together. I just knew Gabi would do a fantastic job at this, so I had her put this masterpiece together. I really love how it turned out. Gabi went above and beyond with this, with not only incorporating all of their favorite toys but also our feature wall in the living room. I love the idea that we will be able to remember our ombre wall from our first home forever.
We had this piece printed and framed. It really adds to our home and I love it.
Baby Is Pregnant!
I can’t tell you how special this piece is to me. It’s very near and dear to my heart. As you might know, my husband and I have been trying to conceive and grow our little family since December 2017. I asked Gabi if she could create this for me and have it serve as a good luck charm. She did a wonderful job incorporating so many special little things into the piece.
Let’s talk about some of the little details you see here.
- The background is the same print as the first baby outfit I’ve ever bought. It was a big day and took me two years.
- The little gorilla you see in the corner there is a teddy Onno bought for me on our second date. The gorilla was playing hide and see at the zoo and to cheer me up, Onno bought that cute little teddy.
- The little zebra blankie you see next to the pineapple came along with that first baby set I bought. I can’t wait to see my precious baby take comfort in their little blankie one day.
- The pineapple is there to represent our infertility journey. I also have a pineapple tattoo.
- The blue little shoes with the clouds on references to the ceiling in the baby room.
- Also, how cute is the mouse version of Onno. Baby found herself a wonderful husband. With the same beautiful blue eyes as my precious husband in real life.
I can’t wait for the day where I can come up here and use this picture with an ultrasound just a few paragraphs later.
Baby Loves Her Coffee
Baby, like her mother, enjoys a cup of coffee way too much. She too, can’t drink it on a daily basis so when she does, she gets a bit excited.
Quite a bit of time has passed between this piece and the last one. In between Gabi changed her art style. I really love the new look of Baby. Also, isn’t that little tongue the cutest little thing ever?!
I’m obsessed with anything watermelon so I naturally had to get Gabi to draw Baby with a watermelon. And she delivered. I plan to get at least one of them as a tattoo eventually. I will definitely come back on here to share the tattoo when the day finally comes. I just want to finish my half sleeve before I get any new tattoos, so it’s going to take awhile. Which one of the three do you like the most? I couldn’t choose and had her make all three.
Butterfly Baby – New Logo
As we recently got ourselves a new name, I naturally had to get a new logo to celebrate. Isn’t she the prettiest little thing ever? It’s been amazing to see Gabi grow as an artist.
This is all the work she has done for me up to July 2020. I will try to come here and update it as we finish more pieces. Some might have to wait as they might be attached to a special launch or event, but otherwise, you will see it here almost immediately. If you commission Gabi, tell her Baby send you.
Thank you so much for reading and I will see you in a click!
