Warm wishes

What a full and fruitful season this has been. I’m happy to announce my new website and shop, Jamie Peeps Island! You’ll find select originals, prints, and books that I can sign and ship directly to the darling of your choice.

When I saw this at the First Friday event for the Wake Up Alice exhibit, I thought yes, fill my cup please!


Besides enjoying a steady swell of viewers to the show, I connected with hearty Tilbury House editor, Audrey Maynard. And she bought my Alice! Thanks, Audrey!


The entire weekend was abuzz with holiday spirit. Just the trigger for me to design my annual holiday greeting.

Yet the weather still feels like fall. Doesn’t it? We even have a rose blooming in our backyard. Pretty but weird.

I have a necklace that became reference for an image idea.


My Snow Queen poster is another source of inspiration. When these invitations showed up from Portland Stage, I knew I wanted to include a girl on a deer in my card idea. Go, Gerta!

Even when I’m my own client, one lame sketch is not enough. It takes several, until you come up with ideas for a whole different approach. (Yarn ball tree, you’re next.)

After taking a detail to share on instagram, I cropped my illustration.


As soon as those square envelopes arrive, I’ll be a busy postal elf. Send me your address if you want one:

Warm wishes for happy holidays!
