Holiday Cards are BACK!

Dealing with inventory in two places plus Squarespace’s annoying shipping settings have me this close to moving everything to Shopify… but in the meantime… ETSY SHOP UPDATE!!! Shop here If you have questions or there’s a design you can’t see or any questions you may have, let me know! You can always contact me through the contact form or DM me if you already follow me on social (@adriprints).

October Doodling list #DIBOOJITOS

Did you know that I co-moderate/host a group for Latine authors and illustrators called Kidlit Latinx (on FB)? Romy Natalia Goldberg and I started the group a few years ago. Anyway, this year after a request from members to put together our own draw-along, we came up with a fun activity for October as a way to mark #HHM #LHM and also celebrate fall/spring in Latin-America. It's a Spanglish list of words to inspire your creative juices throughout October.¡Que lo disfruten! Enjoy!Join us in the activity when you want, and use the hashtag #diboojitos21 so we can find your doodles!...
