Happy Holidays! + Jahna Vashti

Happy Holidays! I would like to wrap up for the year with these cheerful and playful illustrations by Jahna Vashti. Thank you so much for visiting my blog this past year and encouraging me with your comments. It truly means a lot to see you enjoying the owlsome work I hand-pick to share with you. 

I wish you and your family a merry christmas if you celebrate and a very happy holiday season!

Before I let you go, let me introduce you to the wonderful work by Jahna Vashti. Jahna is an artist born in Vancouver Island Canada and grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. She is a self-taught artist who always loved to draw and color ever since she was a little girl. 

"My imagination ruled my every move. The pipes that stretched from the walls that lined the alleys were never just pipes. The tree in the front yard wasn’t just a tree. My father’s favorite car was more than just a vehicle. They were all beings, with a character and a life. So I drew pictures - a lot of pictures."

In her artwork the quirky characters come to life - the owl, bear, raccoon, fox, rabbit, and squirrel - all have a distinct personality. The snow, the christmas tree, winter woodland, holly, all scream holidays.
