Something New…

I have recently been working on a new blog and website and SHOP! I am combing them to one site to make it easier to access without having to switch between so many different sites. This site also has a cleaner more professional look and I am working hard to make my love of art a way for me to make a living. It is starting small, but I hope that it will grow and inspire others.

Continue to follow my artistic journey on my new site as well as Facebook and instagram.

Help support my art dreams by sharing my new site with others you think might enjoy it!

Loosening Up

I think school has totally messed up my style. I have found myself creating illustrations in a way that I fell the teachers will like the most…not what I like the most. I like simpler things, and lately I feel I have been trying to add to much to make an illustration ‘better’. I am going to slow down, loosen up, gain some confidence, and make things the way I want to make them.

The Robot Machine by Rachael Anita

The final product of my Robot Machine book!!! I had a lot of fun creating different robots and binding this book together. I think it is one of the coolest books I have made!!! There are six different robots in the book each with different words to describe them and a name. I am thinking about making scanning and printing the robots and making more books to sell to people if there are any who would be interested!!!  [take my poll about buying a book…poll is on the right side column] Thanks!

I even made a slip case for it!

The cover was lots of fun and a lot of hard work. It took me a few hours to perfectly fold the paper around all of the corners!! But the end result was worth it.

Next up! Monster Book!!!

Coptic and French Link Stitched Journal

New book in my etsy shop! I have been having lots of fun experimenting with different stitching to use on my books. This one is a basic coptic stitch and french link. I am a bit behind on my books right now. I was in some pain last week and didn’t get much done. So hopefully I will get caught up this week!

Plaid and Gold Sketchbook

I love this plaid fabric. It is so soft and beautiful, I just had to make a book with it!! Not to mention the gold paper is awesome!!! This book is now for sale in my etsy shop —>Rachael Anita Creates

The paper inside this book is my absolute favorite. It is a toned paper that is wonderful to draw on. Just feeling the paper with your fingers is amazing.
