I'm excited to feature one of my favorite artists this week, Shawna of Scrawny Girl. I am a huge fan of her art and stickers, you could almost say obsessed. I hope you enjoy her shop as much as I do!
Scrawny Girl, where I make kawaii and quirky illustrated stickers, cards, prints, zines, and more! I have a fatal attraction to cuteness, that you can see reflected in my art and everyday life. I’m addicted to coffee, Hello Kitty, cupcakes, manga, and dying my hair.
My husband came up with the name for my shop/blog a few years ago. We were talking about the nicknames we had growing up (the good, the bad, the ugly), and he asked me if anyone ever called me Scrawna (because I was a scrawny kiddo). Later after seeing my doodles, he dubbed them Scrawny Girls.
I'm super grateful that I'm able to stay home with my daughter and pursue my passion, while helping to contribute to our household expenses.
Time management is definitely my biggest challenge! It's hard to get household things done, promote my business, fill orders, and work on new pieces with a toddler running rampant! I've learned that laundry isn't going anywhere, and to focus and work fast when I get the opportunity.
I'm a big fan of coffee and sweets (mostly cupcakes and french macarons). I have a weakness for cute things, and watch too much anime and Korean dramas.
Fun fact: I cut all my stickers out by hand. It's tedious work, but the result is super cute!
You can find Scrawny Girl on Facebook, Storenvy, Twitter, blog, and Instagram. Shawna is generously offering fans 20% off with code VBlove through the end of June. Plus, one lucky fan will win the 5x7 Ice Cream Dreamer Print!
