Today’s time lapse is the newest elephant to the MeganHStudio collection. After lots of customer requests to add a baby elephant in this style, I was finally able to check it off my to-do list thanks to a customer having an elephant-themed gender reveal party with timing that lined up with my custom order scheudle! Look for this little peanut in fingerprint trees, art prints, and invitations!
I used Adobe Fresco’s live water color brushes for most of this drawing, and of course, on the iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil. And guess what? I’m working on more jungle safari animals in the same style! Art print set, here we come!

Ok, now for some of things you’ll find in my shops 🙂
Regardless of what role COVID-19 plays in your life this Fall, there are still so many reason to celebrate; Halloween, Thanksgiving, maybe a baby shower or two, retirements, weddings, birthdays I’m sure. In whatever capacity that it is safe to gather and celebrate this Fall, create a keepsake while you’re there. It’s definitely going to be a memorable Fall season 😉
Are you welcoming a little pumpkin to the family this Fall? Or do you have small Fall wedding planned? There’s a variety of pumpkin-themed designs waiting for you. Have guests add a fingerprint and sign their name as leaves on these trees or pumpkin vine. Then frame it for a keepsake!
Commemorate everyone at your Thanksgiving gathering, or celebrate your “little turkey” joining the family this Fall! Turkey-themed designs are available now!
Arguably and all season flower, sunflowers around town are definitely at their peak during the Fall! These Sunflowers Designs can be used to celebrate a birthday, baby shower, or retirement. Add fingerprints in any color to make it your own!
Is school closed for your kids? Chances are, their teachers are still busting their buns to put together Zoom meetings, distance learning packets, and seriously missing their classroom full of students right now. And it’s probably breaking their hearts that they may have had the last in-person day of school for the year, and not even known it at the time.
This time of the year, fingerprint tree thank you gifts are usually my biggest seller. But without kids in class to add fingerprints to a picture (and because fingerprints = germs), it sure makes it hard to create a thoughtful end-of-the-year gift from the whole class. I’m still committed to being a part of thanking teachers! I’ve put together a VIRTUAL option for the teacher appreciation-themed fingerprint trees I have.
How it Works:
Pick the style you like best (fingerprint tree, dandelions, or hot air balloon)
Pick the size you want (8×10, 11×14, or 12×16 inches)
Enter how you want the text personalized
Included a list of students’ names
I’ll add illustrated “fingerprints” and the students’ names digitally
Print it on heavyweight cardstock
Ship it out to you or your teacher’s school!
No actual fingerprints (or germs), no shuttling around town to every student’s house, no fretting over that one kid who puts a fingerprint in a goofy spot; I take care of all the tricky stuff for you, and your kids’ teachers still get a memorable keepsake of the year we were all stuck at home!
In March of 2020 things changed for a lot of people. For MeganHStudio, things came to a grinding halt *queue screeching brakes* as restrictions on gatherings and celebrations became part of daily life.
My stats fell off a cliff: A Visual:
Most of my art work is used to celebrate special life events: baby showers, birthdays, retirement parties, etc. And now that a lot of those celebrations aren’t happening in the same way, I find myself with a bit of extra time on my hands.
Up until now, I’ve used my website as a resource for people looking for party ideas and to ensure customers have another way to contact and connect with me. Well, it’s time to pivot now that I’m trying to figure out a way to retro-fit my printer in a parachute so that I don’t crash land.
I’m an artist selling my work on Etsy and Amazon Handmade. I specialize in fingerprint trees and guestbook alternatives for people to use at their special events. Guests add their fingerprint and sign their name as leaves on a tree, balloons on a string, or petals on a flower. Then the picture can be framed as a keepsake. I have art prints and invitations too, of course.
These last few weeks, I find myself with some time on my hands as my orders have flatlined. It’s not all bad. Like many of you, a lot of my time is filled with attempting to home school a kindergartener and a second grader, while also entertaining a one-year-old. But I’m spending my remaining free time working on new things; checking a few things off the to-do list that has done nothing but grow the last few years.
It’s Officially Freebie Friday!
While we work on ending this pandemic, my website will include free downloads for you for a limited time! While things are slow, every Friday you can come here to see a free download–maybe an art print, a fingerprint tree, or maybe even a coloring page or two! We’ll see where this adventure takes us! You can start here with the first Freebie Friday.
[NOTE: As business has started to pick up, Freebie Friday has been discontinued for the time being!]
