coat of arms

I drew this after seeing this great photo on the Satorialist. I always need to draw more dudes - and this great coat was exactly the motivation I needed to do so! I obviously took some liberties on a few things, but that's the joy of drawing stuff for fun.. right?

If you're wondering what happened to my cold season series (and you're probably not, because I think I have about 5 people who read this regularly. Hi Chance!), worry not! I still have one left - the beautiful and super sweet Maggie from Dimestore Diamond has the final slot. I'm thinking about doing a similar series for the spring - and this time I'd like to take submissions! If you'd like to participate (and have me draw you!), please send an email to etrithart (at) gmail (dot) com along with:

(1) An item of clothing that you're looking forward to wearing this spring. It could be something you own, something you've seen in a store, or something you've seen in a photo that you love.
(2) A non-clothing item that will factor into your spring plans somehow. This is also pretty open - a vacation, a dish, a book, a plant... ANYTHING.
(3) A link to your blog and a few sentences about your chosen items.

You can be a boy or a girl (I need to draw more boys, after all), btw. Tell your friends!


  1. This is so cute! I want a little tryptic of some of your drawings. Would be so cute!

  2. I love this series! I'd love to be part of it, I'll try to see if I can come up with something worthy of it.

  3. New reader here and I just went back through your entire series and I'm in love! I'd love to be part of the next one (i'm a local MN girl too). I'll try and come up with something to send!

  4. @Erin and the birds: thanks ladies! <3

    @Beth and Elaina: I would love that! Can't wait to hear from you.

    @Jen it's true, I may have understated my readers :D and thanks! I've been loving all the sketches you're posting on Instagram!
