nuts about you: by tamara garvey


hmmmm, for some reason i want some peanuts right now. i can't imagine why!
i think this illustration by tamara garvey is just the sweetest, don't you?

tamara says:

a lot of my other drawings, even the colorful ones with cute little characters, have sad or uncertain undertones. but i wanted my illustration of abundance to be pure, cheerful, and positive. so i thought about that the whole time i was sketching. i ended up with a baby elephant in coordinated rain gear enjoying a peanut rainfall, and what's more pure and cheerful than that? :)


it's true-- that's about as pure and cheerful as it gets! bring on those peanut rainfalls, or whatever feels abundant for you-- for me it would be grapes! i can eat them until i'm sick. literally. what would you want to be showered in?

visit tamara's website, etsy shop, and blog for cuteness galore!

*thank you so much, tamara!!*
