Star Sponsor: Peety Draws

I'm very excited to introduce you to Jessica from Peety Draws! I first met Jessica on Twitter and I already feel like we would be best friends in real life.

Isn't she gorgeous? She is also VERY talented with pen and ink. She makes hilarious cards, as well as detailed illustrations. Take a look at this piece (Guardian of the Infinite Abyss):

Here's the scoop on Jessica:

Tell us about your shop.
Peety Draws celebrates artwork in its simplest form, ink to paper. I tend to focus on shapes and lines that capture or represent an emotion, object, color or melody in its simplest form. My love for handwritten cards inspired me to add, what I call, the Sassy Peety Collection. I love giving cards that have a sense of humor and border on inappropriate -- it gets the best reaction!

What is the easiest thing about running your shop? The hardest?
Hm, the easiest thing about running Peety Draws is how quickly I can get my artwork on Etsy as soon as I create it. The hardest thing is to keep the artwork and cards I sell current, especially when I'm in a creative slump. 

What is one thing you wish you had known before you started your shop?
I wish I knew how wonderful and useful Treasuries could be. When I first joined Etsy, I bought a lot of Showcase space but much prefer the congratulations and exposure I get when included in a treasury (especially when it makes the Front Page).

If you were a piece of candy, what would you be and why?
That's easy! I would be a Sour Patch Kid. They're sour, sweet, fruity and I believe are the key to my childlike sense of wonderment. 

I highly recommend you follow Jessica on Twitter and on Facebook. You won't be sorry you did!
