This beard is for you

Beard Bouquet

“This beard is for you”

This is my newest illustration just in time for Valentines day. A handsome gentleman with a bouquet in his luscious beard just for you.
He was created on 11X14″ recycled Bristol with graphite.

Vintage finds for February. In all sizes!

Hey everyone! I went shopping for you again. It has been over 2 years and running  TOH and I am still excited to be bringing you vintage finds.I have been getting more and more emails asking to find not just plus size clothing but vintage clothing in every size so I will be doing just that. Naturally I will cater more towards plus size clothing since it is such a hard task but slowly I will introduce smaller sizes as well. I couldn’t model for you this time for 2 reasons. First off  because of surgery a coupe weeks ago that left me weak so I wasn’t feeling up to the challenge and second off I bring you smaller sizes this voluptuous body cant squeeze into (even though i want to badly!) The dress form is a wonderful addition to the shop. I would love to get your feed back on what you prefer though.

But for now here is what I have found just in time for Valentines Day!

If you are interested in any of these items before I put them up for sale on TOH please feel free to write me with VINTAGE as the subject. I would love to hear from you.  I have measured everything and they are ready to rock!

Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

All about the Apple. Iphone case pizzazz.

So here is an idea I have been toying around with. Since everything is all about iphone and bedazzling them to their finest why not spruce them up with artwork?

Here are some examples of what I would be selling.

 

An Iphone case with original artwork designs by April Alayne? Not to shabby an idea I think. Something a little original for your phone.

Any requests or ideas on the topic?? Please feel free to share!
And If you would like to order one please let me know by shooting me an email 

I hope you’re all having a wonderful day!

Hoops & Prints- a new kind of picture frame

So as you all know I have been drawing my fingers off this past month.

I am in the process of making my very 1st collection that I am proud of and I well on my way.

Who needs art school? I have books, the internet and determination!

My goal in 2012? Get better.

I will have prints available  hopefully by next week if not sooner!

In the mean time I have created a new type of a print.

I have taken my illustrations and printed them on a fine piece of cream canvas and fastened them in an embroidery hoop. A little different for your wall decor.

These will be handmade by order.  They can be customized to your liking. So if you would like a different image in your hoop I am more then happy to create something personal for you!

For sale now is “Coriander” Prints and Hoop Prints

I hope you enjoy!

Have a great night everyone.

-April
