Cupcakes & Cherries For Print-on-Demand

Cakeify the happy cupcake was my very first original character and he’s had a few variations along the way. I redrew him in my current art style during my 100 Day Project and it’s grown on me enough that he made it into this month’s calendar character, for my birthday month of course.

You can now also find him in my print-on-demand stores along with a new pattern. I really like how this turned out and think it’s very sweet for birthdays and other celebrations.
