Welcome

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I am Ivy, an artist with a broad sense of many creative disciplines, I am a designer, painter and illustrator . I love typography, photography, heavy stock paper, the smell of fresh ink and the buttery feeling of paint. This is ivyallover, a little piece of art everyday. A place devoted to an ongoing exercise of my work as an artist. A peek into my world of art, inspirations, life and love of dogs.

IF "Prehistoric"

Prehistoric Transportation

Hi there! Oh boy, I have neglected my blog these last few weeks. Life has a way of throwing you a curve ball now and then *sigh*.  My posts will be random during this holiday season but I do hope you continue to pop by and visit my work – there will be many changes to come for 2011 and I can't wait to share them so please stay tuned! And for now I share with you my illo for IF "Prehistoric"

Turtles are so prehistoric looking - aren't they? 
I've always thought of them as sweet little creatures, gentle enough to ride.

I love this new piece. We have a little turtle sanctuary here at our house. I totally understand about not having the time to blog. Life has been crazy lately. I am looking forward to the changes coming...very exciting!

Hola Ivy!!!!!
Hacía un largo tiempo que yo no venía por tu blog.
Solamente quiero decirte que las últimas ilustraciones que he visto son muy bellas!!!!
Te felicito.
¿Tú eres más ilustradora que pintora, o más pintora que ilustradora?
¿Cómo te consideras?
Bien, te deseo una Feliz Navidad junto al "Gordo" (no me he olvidado).
Yo escribí en español a propósito para que tú puedas practicar.
