Hello My Imaginary Friends,
Some people put a lot of effort into a baby’s room. They pick out the right colours, paint the walls, murals, get special decor thingies, etc. Jen and I decided that was all awesome, but felt less personal. What we did instead was ask some fantastic artists to make things for the baby’s walls.
They are all fantastically talented and you should go buy their stuff.
Big Hero 6 Painting – Gilove2dance Designs
Lindsay Coderre is a talented and versatile artist. She primaraly works digitally, but painted this amazing image of Hiro and Baymax that Keladry will always love. Her online store primarily has photo manipulation and design.
Lindsay is Keladry’s Aunt and one of her Godparents.
Dragon’s Den Painted Plaque – The Art Shop
This was given to us as a baby shower present from one of my in-law’s sisters. It’s great when even your extended family’s family know you well enough to get something so perfect.
It was made by the Art Shop. They have some fascinating pieces.
Firefly Cross Stitch – Rebecca
My wife has an amazing super-power; it seems to run through her whole family. It’s the ability to make friends easily and anywhere. Jen met Rebecca on the bus and loved her TARDIS hat. They struck up a conversation and became friends.
She’s an extremely versatile crafter which can be seen on her Tumblr.
Rainbow Wall Hanging
This is from Jen’s room when she was a child. We have no idea where it’s from, but it’s adorable.
Baby Dragon and Tardigrade – S. M. Carrière
The beautiful baby dragon print was painted digitally over our first ultrasound. It was done as a beautiful surprise. The Tardigrade we tried to commission, but she gave it to us as our baby shower present. Don’t you love the detail in the spacescape? So beautiful!
I’ve commissioned her to design me my first tattoo. I’m both excited and a little scared.
S. M. is Keladry’s other Godparent. She’s a talented author, artist, and all around wonderful person. Her newest book was written by votes on her blog and the profit goes to charity. Go buy it and read for a good cause!
TARDIS Lovey – Nerdy Needles
This soft and adorable TARDIS was given to us by the wonderful Nerdy Needles. She has a wide variety of knit and crotchet items. All wonderfully geeky.
Check out their facebook for all the cool stuff.
Dragon Name Plaque – 9five7 Pyrography
We commissioned this piece, and boy did 9five7 do an amazing job. It has the Hogwarts motto on it, Keladry’s name, and her date of birth. The dragon in the middle is really awesome and designed especially for her by the artist.
They do a huge variety of fandoms and I’ve never seen woodburning done so well. Check out their Facebook page and their Deviant art page for more amazing work.
So many talented people. Keladry is extremely lucky.
