Today we are featuring an Etsy shop that I have just adored for some time now: Little Beanz. Crystal, of Little Beanz, creates some of the cutest art prints for kids, that I have seen!
Here's a little background on Little Beanz and Crystal:
I am an artist/animator turned work at home mother, of one incredibly awesome little girl, named Avie. Since her birth in January of 2007, my main goal was to restructure my career so that I could work from home and maximize the amount of time spent with my "little bean." I've always fancied anything even remotely cutesy....in fact, I should have a head full of cavities due to the amount of which I adore "sweetness." I've worked on several different children's animated series as an animator and character designer and children's illustration has always been right up my alley. I thought it would be interesting to create a series of little kids, each with their very own look, personality and charm, allowing the viewer to find something endearing and familiar in at least one, if not more, of my little beanz. Some have a muse behind them, and some are created purely from my imagination. I have a long string of ideas so expect to see many more little darlings as the weeks go on.
Crystal, I only wish that I had half the artistic talent that you have! You have been blessed with some great ability!
