Playful Dot Minibook by Kayla King for
Hi friends! I have a new product that just launched on Minted so I wanted to share it with you here. I designed a sweet birth announcement for Minted called “Playful Dot” using the minibook format. I really love this product line because it’s so versitile and there are so many creative ways to personalize it with text. I hope you like it!

Desert Fox by Kayla King for |
I’m excited to announce that my art print Desert Fox is now available for sale on! I’ve been waiting a while for this one to launch, so I’m super excited to share that the day is here!  I created the print in three different colorways in the hopes that THIS fantastic Mr. Fox will find a home in a little boy OR little girl’s room.

I put together a little nursery inspiration below, how I would design a nursery around this piece. I imagine a little explorer, curious about the stars and planets in the sky and the animals and bugs on the earth.  Mint, yellow, and neutrals round out the room with a simple white crib anchoring the space.

Wild Bouquet by Kayla King for Minted.comThe latest challenge for Minted was in partnership with People Magazine in honor of their upcoming most beautiful people issue.  Designers were asked to create an art print that incorporated one of ten classic quotes about beauty.  I thought I’d share my submissions here.  Let me know what you think!  :)

I (finally!) got a new sketchbook over the weekend and had a lot of fun testing out some new illustration styles. I’m going back to my art school style and trying to be looser in my sketching. Below are a few of the pieces I’m working on.

Well, hello there Poppyseeds journal.  I see you’re looking mighty lovely today.  What’s that, you say?  Oh, I see.  Yes, you are indeed the perfect gift for a dear friend or the best mother in the world. You come with 40 pages of lined, graph, or blank paper inside?  Oh, my!  Don’t be improper, dear, you’re making me blush!

Okay, enough with that.  I’ve got a new journal design available on Minted today!  Poppyseeds was designed to coordinate with my Poppy Fields stationery; a perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for friend or mother (in-law).  I’ve got quite a few girlfriends to shop for this holiday, so journals and stationery from Minted are actually really perfect.  All my shopping done in one place.  And since Minted journals are customizeable at only $16 a pop, this gift won’t break the bank, either!  Boom!  Done.

I was so excited when this month’s issue of Sunset Magazine came in the mail…because I got a small mention!  My work is featured in a great article about and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  I had a really hard time keeping my mouth shut about this since I’ve known since October, but I’m happy to share the article with everyone.

Seriously, though, Minted has really given independent artists like me a shot at sharing artwork with a much wider audience than I could possible go at alone, so for that I’m grateful and so happy to be a part of the Minted team. I meant what I said, the ladies and gents of the design community at Minted are the best.  I’ve made a lot of new friends and gotten lots of advice from more seasoned designers, and not once has anyone ever held back on sharing their design/lettering/printing secrets.  I feel very fortunate to have found Minted and hope I get to design for them for as long as I can.

P.S. Have you ordered your holiday cards yet?  Click on the link at the top right for a special discount!

P.P.S. I just got my hands on Minted’s new Triple Thick cards and WOW!  If you’ve got the extra dough to throw down, I couldn’t recommend the quality of the product highly enough.  Love it!

I’ve got some new holiday cards available on this season!  I really love that Minted is offering New Year’s cards this year.  I think they’re perfect for a little change or for people who don’t celebrate the holidays, but still want to give a little shout out to friends and family at the end of the year.  But I think the funnest thing is that you can now get cards in a whole bunch of fun die-cut shapes!  I know I’d love to receive something so unique in the mail.  Have a look at some of my new designs for the holidays and remember to scroll all the way to the bottom for a discount code for you to use on this winter.
