Thank You for Being a Friend

Celebrating the full picture of BFF life, this mug features Sandra Dumais's playful heart illustration that offers a refreshingly honest look into cohort-ism. Sandra hand sketches, paints, and digitally draws a narrative interplay of words and images. The result is an ode to hilarity, kindred spirits, and weird haircuts that makes for a positively charming character study. Mug made in China. Decorated in Edina, Minnesota.

“I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane.”

Sandra Dumais' work is inspired by her childhood, children, and the "funny, tender world" around her. "I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane," she says. She took to drawing at a young age, making books out of the musty rolls of wallpaper she found in her linen closet. Her artworks feature a mix of illustration, painting, and digital drawing, culminating in pieces that weave tales through words and images.

    My best friend, who I've known since we were toddlers, moved three time zones away. I miss her and her children every day. This was the perfect gift to let her know I think about her every single day.
