New mini print is up!  The Audrey Hepburn print is just one of many $3 prints that are ready to frame! 

Animals with attitude

This unique 5.5x4.25" Mini pen print set of the of Animals With Attitude will give an cute, fun feel to any home. The drawings are of my own design, originally done with FW Ink on Strathmore Watercolor Paper.  The prints come in their own sealable plastic sleeve, to keep them from getting dirty or smudged during shipping. 

Are you a big fan of animals and humor? I love the expressions animals make; they always have the strangest looks on their faces, like they're going to say something ridiculous at any moment.  These pair of Prim and Proper Peacock and Sassy Iguana who just doesn't give a $%^& and won't take any either are a perfect example of some of these wacky animal expressions.  These prints are a great addition to a small work or play area, or great for a larger collection! This print set is small enough that it will be right at home in a larger collection of wall art, or by itself as set of accent pieces to a room, or a way to frame either side of the wall above a desk, table, etc. ink and watercolor drawing style is a favorite of mine, and many of my other prints feature it. 

The print comes in a clear plastic sealed sleeve. It is 5.5x4.25" and is professionally printed on 60lb semi gloss paper.
The painting is my original artwork, © 2015 by Maria Oglesby

Custom Pen Portrait Drawing

As an illustrator, I'm constantly sketching the people I see around me in my sketchbook. Now that I'm selling my illustrations on Etsy, it occurred to me: why not offer my sketchbook time to people who would really like a drawing of someone?

I'm now offering a drawing in my sketchbook of someone based on a photo you provide in my etsy shop! You can even choose which pen color I use :)
Unlike my portrait listing, this one is only $10, so very affordable!
