Hello little blog, how've you been? I just wanted to pop in and tell you I've packed up my things and will be traveling for a while. I'm still drawing and exploring, but very excited to be on the move again. If you want to see glimpses of my adventures, look me up on Instagram.
Hi guys, I know I haven't been around much, I hope you're all doing well!
I wanted to pop in and show you some pictures of this year's Christmas parade.
This is the fourth time we participated and I think it may have been the most fun for the people involved. The idea was to build a herd of reindeer to walk (and sing and dance - however the mood strikes) in the parade.
We came up with a template and a patient friend cut out a whole bunch of them from recycled cardboard. Most of the the decorations came from thrift shops, although there was also paint and duct tape involved. We had a fun time and won the city prize for "most creative entry, so we were doing something right! And then there was pizza, of course.
I've been practicing my printmaking skills, and although I'm playing around with screenprints, a linocut still works best for me. Here is what my holiday card looks like this year:
I'm bringing a few to the local art sale at The Arts Center, so here is a little herd all packed up and waiting to go.
Today's package is a bit intimidating, and not only because of it's size.
Voila: my page in this year's Directory of Illustration!!!!!!!
I received a package in the mail this week, and now I can finally show you a sweet assignment that dropped in my lap this summer. If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen the whole thing in excruciating detail, but it always takes me a bit longer to come over here. Well, here goes:
Here I am on the table of contents, mine is the seal juggling Oreo truffles - of course.
I got to do a feature for allrecipe magazine, and although I'm playing it cool, it was pretty exciting.
For this holiday candy recipe layout, the Art Director chose to photograph the confections in a watercolor Candyland landscape. The candies would become part of the picture, and turn into something else. I got to invent a storyline, paint the scenes and come up with ways to "disguise" the candy, which was a lot of fun.
These are a few of my favorites.
