Some colour

Beaver copyright Barbara Di Lella 2014
Besides drawing new images for this year, I've been fooling around with some other ideas. I like that my beaver looks as though he's been printed on kraft paper or perhaps just a wash of ochre.

Sparrow Avenue Beaver Toddler T-shirt

These cappuccino toddler t-shirts were so well received at the One of a Kind. I really like the different colours that can "poke" through the wood cut-look.

It has been pretty cold here the last few days but the beginning of a much needed thaw is supposed to be happening.


  1. Oh, I like that little bit of color. Are the toddler shirts long sleeved?
    Have a good weekend, schools have been out all week due to snow and arctic temps!

    1. It certainly has been cold here too, although warmer temperatures are on the way !!
      The toddler t's are short-sleeves
