Cupcake - baby girl in bath: Bib

I had fun creating this. A bib with my artwork - watercolor and ink - little girl in a bath with her rubber duck. I actually did a graphic artwork based on this, for network sites, but this is the original hand-done art. I labeled this "CupCake" in a great font - again, this was fun to create.
And it seemed just perfect on a bib in my Cafe Press store.

INSTINCT - illustration theme.

It seemed appropriate that these two kittens be labeled 'instinct'. As kittens have to learn about their new world, much of it by instinct.
This is a 5x7" watercolor I did a while back.
I have just put up this image onto ImageKind (see top of this page), so that prints can be obtained. I also sell it as ACEOs from my website, and on giftware, and so forth on Cafe Press.
These were two little kittens - a tuxedo and a tabby, waiting for adoption at my local animal shelter. I sure hope they found good homes.
Thanks for looking.

My ACEOs incorporating graphic design - journal covers

I have a lot of scans of my old, sold ACEOs, and love using them for other purposes. I've shown before how I created magnets from them. Now I've been even more creative, putting them on the front of journals, with other design elements.

Hope you'll take a look in the "WHAT'S NEW" section of my Cafe Press store:

I'm doing more right now, so be sure to bookmark it.
Thanks for looking.

For you: Promotional ACEO enclosures, personalized.

ACEO accessories. Listed on etsy (seller id: artistjillian)

I'm having fun designing these...

Buy this digital sheet with your PERSONAL customization. Print as MANY times as you want. Put your ACEO in a penny sleeve. Tuck it inside the cut-out, folded THANK YOU note card, with your promotional text on the back. Pop it inside the cut-out, folded envelope, with promotional text and greeting on the front. The back flap of the envelope explains ATC, ACEO acronyms + size. You can print at will, but not to share with others, or to alter in any way once purchased. I do the custom lettering.

Once packed, you can then put this in some substantial packaging - but this makes a really nice presentation package for your buyer, or if giving ACEO as a gift.

... as I said ... much fun. More designs to come!

I wanted to share these with y'all.

Some of my best ACEO art images as magnets.

I absolutely love that I've been able to put some of my very best images onto good quality magnets for sale.
They make great presents and are not mass-produced.

I've sorted them by category.
I have put my name on each of them, as I am the artist, and bank on my name a lot, as I'm reasonably well known. If you'd like them without this, please let me know, and I'll provide them without my name.
ALSO, I'd love to hear your opinion, as to whether I SHOULD put my name on them, or not.
I'd love to be selling more, and if that is what it takes, I'll alter them. Thanx.

Fuchsia: Fancy Frills - original watercolor painting.

SFA - small format art
"Fuchsia - Fancy Frills" Available on eBay.

by Jillian Crider
on heavy archival watercolor paper.

image size 5.5" x 6"

The painting is extended onto the mat. The mat is
part of the painting.

matted size 11" x 11.5"

"This artwork is from 1993 when I created a series of fuchsia paintings for a calendar (never published), and subsequently for an exhibition.
This painting remains from that time, it was never sold, just packed away.
Personally I love this work, I love fuchsias, and this is just too lovely to be stored away and not seen.
Fuchsias are such 'happy' plants - so colorful and festive, and, in turn, this painting is a 'feel good' painting.
I'm hoping someone will give it a good home. Thank you."
