Wise words from this disgruntled looking little turtle. Our lives seem to be going at an ever faster and faster pace, and I think we all need this reminder once in a while. Also, one of the things I love most about drawing is that you can just make things up. Like this guy’s silly pointy teeth. Do turtles even have teeth? And his weird three-toed feet. Hilarious.

All of the fabrics used for the prints are vintage or reclaimed fabrics that are sourced from a magical fabric sale that happens once a year in Calgary organized by the charity Ujamaa Grandmas. Donated fabric fills the basement of a church, with most fabrics going for $1/metre, and all proceeds going to the charity. It's honestly one of my favourite days of the year and has led to me having a large and cherished collection of amazing fabrics. Because they are purchased second hand, I cannot be sure of the fabric contents.
