My Peacock Feather Illustration On Wedding Invitations

Another wonderful use of my vector image that I found on Google Images search! These are a set of wedding invitations: invites, envelopes and RSVP cards designed by talented graphic designer Lindsay Johnson of San Diego, California using my little peacock feather vector element. She even made a seamless pattern out of my feather to go on the inside of the envelope and as a border on RSVP. Very nice!




I hope Bride and Groom had a wonderful wedding day! :)

And here is my vector feather for sale on my iStockphoto portfolio:


Hope you are all having a great week!


Video: Great news! First book illustrated by me: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

I am very happy to announce that the first children’s book illustrated by me was published in the USA! Yay! :)

It is called Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. The poem was written by Melissa Everitt. It is based on a very famous, old English lullaby by Jane Tailor.

Flowerpot Press publisher did a great job printing the book. It is a square hardcover printed on a heavy cardboard with rounded corners. I especially like that parts of the cover are mirror-like.I really enjoyed working with Patrick and Steph from Flowerpot press publishing house on this little nursery rhymes book.

I Quit Exclusivity: My Images Are Now For Sale At Six Microstock Agencies

I have some exciting news to share :) A couple of weeks ago I cancelled my exclusivity on iStockphoto to try myself on other microstock agencies. It was a good couple of years being exclusive and my microstock business has considerably grown over this time, but I decided to give my portfolio a try on a number of microstock websites. I hope it will bring my portfolio new exposure, new clients and new possibilities.

Here are the links to my portfolio on microstock agencies:







For now I am in the process of uploading my 1500+ vector illustrations, seamless patterns and designs to these 6 microstock agencies and plan to increase the list of websites as I see how things are going.

What are your plans for next year? :)
