Little Devil

Teetoo Devil Notebook Society6
Before Halloween 2015, I made some sketches of three vintage Halloween inspired characters; a devil, a screaming cat and a pumpkinhead. You may remember the  below image of my sketches that I posted at that time.


This past Halloween I created a Pumpkinhead Illustration, last Halloween I shared a Screaming Cat Halloween Sewing Project, but I never did anything with this little devil and he's been in my mind. When we broke three of our favorite mugs (all but one of our large sized mug) in one week and I learned that Society6 was going to be offering the best deal I've ever seen from them, it was the impetus I needed to finally get this finished. Perhaps it seems a little out of season, but really, when is a penchant for the sinister ever out of season?

I'm really happy with how these all turned out. I especially love the green zipper hoodie and notebook, though I may have to get myself a devil tote bag as well.

Just as I did with the dolphin design I made last year, I used cut paper to create the image first and then scanned this into Photoshop and then used Illustrator to create the vector. Quite honestly, I'm not entirely sure why I put myself through this torture of a hobby, lol. It takes me so much time to create these little design experiments because there are many months between each try with Photoshop and Illustrator that I often forget how to do many things. Anyway, that's life with a creative hobby on top of  a full time job, a part time business and parenting. I often think it's kind of amazing I get any creative projects accomplished at all. Somehow I can't seem to stop myself. 

Below is an image from the fall of the cut paper piece taped up in my sewing nook.

I do have some other things to share; some things that are old news, but I have yet to share them here and some exciting upcoming projects I'm working on this year. One is a big top secret surprise that I can't wait to finish and tell people about! It is not as simple as it once was for me to write posts about everything that I'm working on. I often think that I'm going to have time to blog about it all, but then the blogging never happens. If you want to see more of my creative projects, please follow me on Instagram (andreateetoo).

Have a great week!

Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler




Our whole family are huge fans of Adventure Time. Mr. Deal especially loves the adorable Lord of Dark Magic, Peppermint Butler. When John's mug broke, I promised to get him a Peppermint Butler mug to replace it, but when I couldn't find one I liked, I opted to make him one instead.



The opportunity to create a great version of Pep-But came when @mabgraves Drawloween Instagram challenge 'Contaminated Candy' came along in October. This drawing of Pep-But is inspired by the Adventure Time Nemesis episode where Pep-But wears his cape to battle the Peace Master. Here is my original drawing above and below is the piece in progress as a vector.



I've enabled a bunch of Pep-But products in the Teetoo Society6 Shop. Here are a few of my favorites...

Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler All-Over Print T-Shirt

Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler Phone Cases

Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler Laptop Sleeves



Everything in the Society6 Teetoo shop is 15% off today with free worldwide shipping.

It's snowing  here today for the first time this year, and although I'm a wee bit sad to say goodbye to autumn, it really is quite beautiful. I've been busy working on a few special orders for Christmas and I am putting together a few other new things for both my Etsy shop and Society6 shop that I hope to share soon. We're also beginning to decorate our home for Yule today.

Enjoy this wonderful season!

Pumpkinhead


Hi! Long time no see, hey?

I couldn't let my favorite season go by without making a little something, so I whipped up an autumn drawing that I'm fairly pleased with. I made this illustration for the Instagram Drawloween challenge for jack-o-lantern and now there are a few Pumpkinhead products available in my Society6 shop. I hope you love him.


I adore vintage images of pumpkinhead characters so much, which have obviously inspired my drawing. L. Frank Baum's Jack Pumkinhead is my very favorite. Follow this link to read Baum's Jack Pumpkinhead and the Sawhorse short story online. We watched Baum's Return to Oz last weekend and it was just as great as I remembered it being as a kid.

































If you're on Pinterest and you love pumpkinheads and Halloween as much as I do, you might like my Halloween Pinterest Board.

On a personal note, to say that this year has not turned out as I had expected, is an understatement. In the springtime I found myself in the throes of extreme adrenal fatigue and anemia. So, I decided to pull myself away from everything unnecessary and nursed my way back to health with homeopathy, herbs, nutrition and lots of napping. I've changed my life and psyche drastically since then to ensure that I don't slip back into the same state that landed me in exhaustionland. Not checking in here was part of that process, so I apologize for disappearing again. Anyway, I do have a few projects I'm chipping away at in my own time that I will finish eventually and I do hope to check in here more regularly again. Thank you so much to those of you who continue to stop in here to see what I'm working on.

It is my hope to be back again before Halloween, but if not, happy haunting!
