2014 Calendar + Piperlime OMGifts

November 18, 2013 7 Comments

 

How fun is this!? Piperlime has launched a new holiday product called the OMGift. It's a carefully curated, wrapped box filled with amazing little gifts and my 2014 calendar is one of them!

It's like a birchbox for giving presents, genius right? There's one for the hostess, for the office pal and for your BFF. And while my calendar is obviously the perfect gift for these three (and all other) categories, you can find it in the Office Pal box.

What do you say, pretty neat right? It's just another example of what having zero PR can get you. Just keep working hard, doing what you love and a brief ten years later, one of your products will be included in a small group of products featured on a nationally acclaimed shopping site for a limited time only. Total fairytale rise to stardom, I know. I'm blowing up right now...  People often say things to me like "you are blowing up right now" and I always chuckle inside because if someone from the past heard that, they'd go hide behind something to avoid the impending explosion.

I'm also chuckling because, "blowing up right now" is such an exaggeration. Blowing up is what Skinny Girl Margaritas did. Blowing up is One Direction, Silly Bands and SPANX tights. What I'm doing is really slowly heating to a nice rolling simmer over the course of a decade of hard work and a lifetime of sketching on scrap paper. It's not exactly a Harvard Business School case study, but it's a success I can be proud of.

So here's to this latest milestone - thank you, Piperlime for this fun feature!

If I get to where you are in ten years of illustrating I’ll be thrilled! You and your work have been an inspiration to many more of us than you know.

Also, saw the business on Instagram today — hope it all gets straightened out and you gain the credit you deserve.

You are too much! I see your art all over the internet these days! I get so proud! You deserve it, and those other things that are “blowing up” are going to fizzle eventually. You are timeless!
