Cultivate Kindness

Cultivate Kindness by Karen Gadient, 2016

Cultivate Kindness. Watercolor and digital design. I started this design for myself, to display near my computer, but I liked it so much that I wanted to share it with others. There can never be too much kindness in the world. These days, there seems to be a shortage―so it’s a good idea to spread it around.

Hope you’re having a great week!

Moon Cat

Moon Cat. Happy Cat of the Moon. Vector Illustration.

This is the partner to Sun Cat, but I didn’t post her when I shared that illustration. With all this moony talk lately (and that big moon outside of my window last night), I figured it was a good time to let her loose.

Hope you’re having a great week so far!

Happy Octopus

Happy Octopus by Karen Gadient, 2015

Happy Octopus.

Started off as a quirky colored pencil sketch that I thought was cute, and developed into a vector illustration. Happy little guy―makes me smile! Hope he passes a smile along to you too and that you’re having a good week so far.

Stay Up & Write

Stay Up & Write by Karen Gadient, 2015

For a print and lots of other items, please click the image.

Something for my writer friends. And for me too, I suppose―after all, NaNoWriMo is practically around the corner now that we’ve passed the mid-year mark. Whoa. Is it just me or has this year been going too fast?

Get another cup, because that novel won’t write itself!
