Jess, cartoon illustrator for “Art by Jess” which includes a handful of stores specializing in adorable whimsical designs for birthdays, baby showers, holidays, brides, and other party events.
Hello and thank you for stopping by my contributor page on Party Simplicity! My name is Jessie, and I’m the artist and designer at All Pets Cherished, which is my Zazzle store that I created under my business name Art by Jess. Our logo is the cute little giraffe that you see at the top of all of our headers. If you see him, then you know you’ve found us!
When I’m not in front of the computer designing, I’m usually riding my horse (my 1st kid) or playing with my real kids (the humans I created). My kids and animals keep me young at heart and full of creativity.
How I started and what I do:
I have been an artist since I could hold a pen, and a professional graphic designer since 2004. I’ve also had training in photography, stained glass, and basic html web design. I am an expert in vector illustrations and Photoshop. I love to see my sketches come to life after I’ve scanned them and digitized them.
My passion for animals and art often combine, and I love to create adorable animals for baby shower invitations, birthday invitations, and nursery designs. My style has been described as whimsical, fun, cute, and unique. I have also developed unique bridal shower invitations and holiday cards. My designs are available on a variety of gift items too via our partner stores at Zazzle and Cafepress. I also offer my party invitations on Etsy, where you can print your own designs. My biggest inspirations are my kids, and many of the designs I create have been “kid-tested and approved.”
I hope you find some of my party blogs entertaining and useful for your next event! Please contact me for any design requests. I will take custom design work upon request.
