Congratulations on the Illustrationmundo piece, it looks great.

Do you do itty bitty commissions? I love your style and would love to have a header for my blog: www.superdumbsupervillain.com.

This birthday card is absolutely amazing! I love it! Actually it is my birthday today and I was asking myself what kind of invitations, cards and stuff I could design for such an event and I love yours!! :)

I just started my own blog today, if ever you want to have a look at the first posts, feel free to!

And keep up the wonderful work!

Who are these people who can afford a personalized designer birthday invitation. So not fair. :D

This is awesome! I especially love the 5 with the cake top and candles! I may have to try something similar when my daughter turns 5! Your blog is very inspiring.

I love this!!! So creative!
It's funny because I'm in the process of working on a birthday themed piece right now.
I like yours much better, lol. :)

I love this so much, it's really a fabulous design, so much color and a funny sweetness (I won't say whimsy, I hate that word) with the cat in a dress and wearing the same tights as the little girl, and I like the "O" in Olivia being like a balloon connecting to her age she's turning. If I got this invitation I would frame it.

I also just started following your blog and have a link to it on mine, and it's so inspiring to see your art every day!

Congratulations on the Illustration Mundo feature, I didn't even know what that was and now I can look there for even more fun illustrations. I looked through the shots they had of your work, and I really laughed at the one of the Mom with the baby, and everyone giving her advice, including the animals. I have a 19-month old girl and I sometimes get "free" advice from the strangest people!

Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing it in your blog.
