My name is Karen Blados. I'm a happily married mom of two Punks trying to fit everything I want to do ... drawing, playing, reading, yoga, napping, eating, smiling, even laundry ... into each day.

For a long time, my favorite thing to do was drawing. Then I grew up, went to college, started working as a graphic designer and art became my job. In August of 2006, I was a stay-at-home-mom watching my Punks play with crayons and I realized I missed drawing myself.

I started keeping a sketchbook for the first time in my life and am now a self-proclaimed sketchbook-aholic working on my 45th book.
