Valentine’s Coffee Sleeves

Done a few of these for La Bou Carmichael – just ask you barista for one!

Holiday Coffee Sleeves

Here are some of the holiday coffee sleeves I did for La Bou Carmichael, my local java joint. If you’re in the Carmichael area, stop by and ask your barista for one! These cover Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, and “Talk Like a Pirate Day”! I got the idea from fellow cartoonist and Facebook “friend” Jon Murakami, who’s been doing this with his cartooning friends at their local Starbucks in Honolulu. If you make it to Hawaii, stop in at their Honolulu Starbucks – tell them I sent you!

Hand-Drawn Holiday Cards Are Still Available!

I sent out (to previously-promised friends) or sold most of the cards I’ve been working on recently – been restocking my “inventory” this week (by drawing more!). Below are some pics of what’s currently available – stop by La Bou Carmichael this weekend if you’d like to pick up one or more – just $5 each. Such a deal!

The La Bou Bakery and Cafe Corner Artist Collective – in Carmichael

My local java joint, La Bou Carmichael, is a real art center! I’ve been hanging out there since we moved to Carmichael, so much so I call it my “office”. And I’m not the only artist there!  Barista Megan designs cards for all occasions and has been doing so for several years – she calls her “company” Anchor Cards, and she now has a collection for sale at La Bou’s front counter – just $5 each.

My lovely wife Evelyn is drawing and painting coffee sleeves for La Bou  and everyone loves them. Just ask for one when you order your drink!

If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by, say hi, and enjoy the great coffee and tea drinks and the yummy pastries – all baked on premise! Say hi to Lee, the manager, too – she’s great and occasionally does some origami!

Hand-Drawn Holiday Cards – the Collection

Below is a pic of nearly all the cards I’ve done for the holidays so far – though I’ve added a few more since I took the picture! When someone buys a card, I redraw it, so this is basically the “base”. I started this because I had promised some people back in the spring that I would do cards for them. Then I waited ’til the week before Thanksgiving to start drawing them! After people at my java joint (La Bou in Carmichael) expressed an interest, I started selling them. It’s keeping me busy! 🙂

More Hand-Drawn Holiday Cards

Been getting a lot of interest in my hand-drawn cards and have sold a few at my local coffee place, La Bou Carmichael. Here are a few more I’ve done in the past couple of days – I’m trying to build up my “inventory” because there are several people I promised I’d do these for last spring and now it’s almost That Time! 🙂

Hand-Drawn Holiday Cards – Now Available!

I’m now offering hand-drawn holiday cards – just $5 apiece! I’m working on them at our local java joint, La Bou in Carmichael, CA, usually between 11am and 3pm. If you’re in the area, stop by – La Bou also has great treats, sandwiches and salads – all made on premise – even the sandwich rolls (I recommend the sourdough baguette!) If you can’t come by and still want a card (or two – or three!) contact me at one of the contact points in the graphic below and we can work things out – postage will be added to the $5 per card, so it makes sense to buy more than one. 🙂 Below are some of the cards I’ve already done – I’ll be adding more soon. Happy Holly-Daze!
