the fastest method of sourcing children's illustrators online
Just an update. Our website can now be reached using aarartmobile.com. The advantage is that using that url will get you onto mobile sized scoll pages directly rather than trying to find the link crammed in with all the others!
It's still best to view the whole site on a larger display as we are showing wall sized concepts.

Date of publication / release: 01.11.2015
This is a young children's series of four books set in one location while illustrating the four seasons. The intent is to interest children in the natural world and introduce some of what lives there or travels through.
The project was very interesting as it was a true blend of traditional hand done original artwork and digital hand done original artwork, working from pencil sketches. Something that Agaworld accepted without concern. It was also very interesting for Agaworld as they are a Korean publisher with limited english skills and for us as we are Canadians and unfortunately, are unilingual English speakers! We took on the project and found that language does not have to be much of a problem. Just an unusual challenge met with patience and humour.
All in all, it was a rewarding experience.

Sound familiar? Anyone who has downloaded our Aarart Applique Catalogues may have discovered that many of our applique aar a tad on the large size and thought “Aar they joking? Have I got enough friends? How am I supposed to know exactly where to put the first applique up before I know where the others go? And don’t even mention the background painting! I suddenly feel dizzy.” Quite the conundrums. Or arr they.
Well, we’ve done something about it. We have created four How To Do It, Made Easy publications that aar free downloads at www.aarart.com.
That’s not all. We have a new website reached by typing aarart.houzz.com in the search field and a page on houzz.com at http://www.houzz.com/pro/aarart/aarart-applique-by-drew-brook-cormack.
All the very best from,

We seem to be just full of announcements lately. It appears that we are now to be found on houzz.com. It’s a home renovating, design and decor site for talented home specialists so how we got on there is a mystery we do not wish to pursue too far! It gets even more surprising. They have even put under ‘wall art professionals’! Life can be strange indeed.
We have got to get working on some idea books for the site but for now we’ll have to muddle through with our free Aarart Applique Brochures at http://www.aarart.com.
Take care, (Look what happened to us!)

We have just prepared our Aarart Applique Brochure #3 which is suited to the more traditionally minded decorator. It will grow along with us over time and hopefully be of some use for those who aar not quite sure of where they wish to go with their surroundings or how to get there. Apart from family suggestions that is.
We have also updated the Aarart.com website to include a preview page displaying samples from each of our brochures in the hope that it will spur the unsure into boldly going forth and realising their dreams.
All the very best,

We aar pleased to announce that we have just uploaded a new set of images in our #2 catalogues. The image is called ‘Julia’, the peony.
While we were at it, we decided to rearrange the ‘Buy’ buttons on the ‘Order Applique’ pages. We hope this will make finding what you need a little bit easier and not to get too relaxed, we aar working on a completely new Aarart Applique Brochure #3. It will have an entirely new approach to using our applique. We aar very excited with our new concepts and look forward to getting them to you as soon as possible.
All the best,

Some of you may have discovered that many of our applique aar a tad on the large size and thought “Aar they joking? How am I supposed to know exactly where to put the first one up before I know where the others go?” Quite the conundrum. Or is it.
Rather than removing the backing from your applique and having everything go sideways from there, let us suggest tape. Yep, low tech does it beautifully. Now please, please understand that we aar not talking about the pull-a-locomotive or suspend-an-automobile sort, or even duct tape. Let’s focus on a mild mannered tape used by painters.
At this point, remember the layout you so diligently worked on and frantically try to remember where you put the ruddy thing. Now do any necessary measuring to check on your eye-balling put up the main focus of your creation. This is your gauge point from which you can start. Remove your main focus, or anything else, when necessary and put it back, if necessary, as you go. A well ordered, step by step approach is the safest bet and least likely to lead to hair loss, or worse. It is helpful to include chocolate for it’s calming effects. What you and your friends may enjoy during and after your ...
Deborah and I aar very pleased to announce the completion and posting of our brand new free Aarart Designer’s Layered Catalogues! It is the next step up in making digital planning and layouts as simple as a copy and paste or drag and drop session with the images you are interested in viewing, in situ. Here is how it all works.
The designer creates a .psd friendly layout of the space they aar working in and then copies and pastes or drags and drops the desired images into place. You will notice that each image is on a separate layer, with no background, making assembly as quick and as easy as possible. Once you have all the images assembled, it is a matter of trying various arrangements and elements in situ to achieve a stunning result with little or no risk.
Another great feature of the Aarart Designer’s Catalogues is that they contain all the scaled oversized images that did not fit in the Aarart Applique Catalogues, providing a clearer impression of the composition.
The designer’s catalogues aar not only for professional designers. Anyone can utilise them, providing they have .psd friendly applications, so go ahead with down loading them and get creative!
All the best,
