Cookies and Cards

The Memory Dragon orders, one and all, have shipped! Everyone should receive their cards within the next couple of days (except for you international orders. Arrival time on those is a mystery to me).

Anna's hand-sewn bags, with their gold lining and dragon-scale patterned exteriors, looked very fine and the cards printed beautifully this time around thanks to National Media Services in Front Royal. I will definitely be producing some more items with their help in the future. Posters, perhaps? Maybe a poster of the image below? (you can click on the image below to biggerize):

And here, for everyone interested in process, is a little gif showing how this image developed from a rough pencil sketch to the final colored piece:

Finally, look what I found online the other day!:

A bakery in Austin, Texas, Curious Confections, was asked to make custom Zita the Spacegirl sugar cookies and they look awesome! Thanks Google alerts!

È vero, è un mistero, ma aspetto con fiducia! Brava Anna!
Ciao, grazie
Il poster è bellissimo!

Just read the newest Zita -- I found it in my local bookstore! It was great and I'll certainly be buying it as soon as may be. :) I love the gif of the process, and the cookies!
