An Artist to recommend and New Art from Mirth & Reverence

January 14, 2009

This Yule to simplify my life I went hunting on Etsy for handmade pretties to send to my family in NY and lucked out! I found this amazing artist Courtney Cornett who does Animal illustrations ala A is for Albatross etc but she also does a line of “nerdy” animals – same images only with their Latin names, very fun. Best part, she does custom work! So when i did not see what I wanted for my Dad – a Polar bear, my step-mom – a horse and my little sister – a unicorn, I emailed her and she happily worked up the sketches! They were so great I ended up ordering ones for both my kids, my husband, another friend, my coven and then because my hubby got mad at me for not getting one for myself, going back and ordeing one for me as well! (I think I made her Christmas!)

Her work is awesom and she is great to work with – so If you want an image of a friendly critter, or your local animal spirit – I highly recommend her!! Her Etsy shop is courtneymcornett.etsy.com and here is a sample of her work, the Manta Ray she did for my husband.

… she currently has a river otter up, the polar bear she did for my dad, the unicorn, Rhinoscorus, horse and Dragon she did for me and hopefully she will put up the Golden Eagle soon as well. And maybe just maybe she will put up the black squirrel she did for Covenus Ratatoskus! :

The other Pimp Job I will do while I am here (of course!)  is for the shop on Artfire that my business partner, Jamie and i have.  Jamie (the Jeweler) has been making pretties for Valentine’s day and Imbolg / Brigid and I have my soft form Fire Doll and Sir EJ up for both V.D. and Lupercalia cause well – you can never have too much passion on those days!! come! visit us at  http://mirthreverence.artfire.com

Stop by and say hi!
