2023: The Year of the New Studio

2023: The Year of the New Studio

Hello, and welcome to 2023!Aka, the year of the new studio…in more ways than one. The first way? If you glanced at the top of the website, you might have noticed a subtle change to my logo. Mackenzie Myrick is now Mackenzie Myrick Studio. Yes, a small change, but exciting nonetheless! Why the change? As I head into the 3rd year of my business, I am focused on bringing even more value to you: in my art itself, but also in my product offerings and presentation. And the Studio will help me do just that. The second way? The art...

Imagination Station: How I Come Up With Ideas

Imagination Station: How I Come Up With Ideas

Hi everyone! Wow, the last time I blogged about anything was in February! This year is flying by and keeping me super busy. Somewhat luckily (and unluckily), I was forced to slow my roll this week by a bicycle accident - pun definitely intended. This past week I went bike riding with my cousin's family. Within the first five minutes (literally, the first five minutes), I got going too fast and couldn't brake...and ran straight into a pole! Truly, it was quite hilarious, but I ended up with a major hematoma (aka very nasty bruise) on my leg that swelled...

Cake, candles, and a Badger?

Cake, candles, and a Badger?

Bippity Boppity Boo! February always feels just a tad bit special because it only has 28 days. It also tends to feel more special to me (and likely my fellow Georgians), because Georgia weather gets a little bit colder and the chance of snow increases for us during this month. Okay, it increases only slightly, and I haven’t seen snow on the ground in a few years, but I can hope, right? Today I want to highlight the Birthday Badger because he’s been such a big hit! I think what I love most about the little dude is that I...

Product Creation: Drawing & Printing the “Time Hopping” Notepad

Product Creation: Drawing & Printing the “Time Hopping” Notepad

Happy January, Happy 2021, and Happy Thursday! Today’s post is all about product creation. Specifically, I want to talk about how I created and printed my “Time Hopping” notepad, which I released last month. Producing this notepad required some printing knowledge and figuring out, so I thought it might be fun to explain the specifics of how I created it. First things first... This notepad is different from some of my other notepads in that it bleeds off the page (aka, it features a design that is printed all the way to the edge). While this might not seem like...

The Nutcracker Suite

The Nutcracker Suite

Hello, and Happy Thanksgiving! As December approaches, I wanted to take a moment to blog about my Nutcracker series, because so many people have expressed their love for these themed drawings. To be honest, when I came up with the idea for nutcracker drawings, I wondered if anyone would be interested in them…because I don’t know the general consensus on nutcrackers. Are they classic? Nostalgic? Creepy? However, the response I’ve had on the nutcrackers makes me so happy to have made this Christmas series, so I hope you’ll enjoy reading about them and seeing more process photos. The Idea My...
