slice of life

 I'm just getting started on instagram and most of my followers are under 18. While I am proud of my cross generational appeal, I wouldn't mind mixing it up a little.... stop by and visit!


happy spring !

Enjoy your weekend!

guess which one belongs with me ...


If you know me, you are aware of the fact that I'm not much of a dancer. I think I missed that window, and now it's definitely too late...
But I've been doing my research, and I have a few dance illustrations in the works, just for fun.
I hope you are having some fun too, spring is coming!

Happy Monday!
I was playing around with my panther sketch and here's what I ended up with:


happy PI day!

My daughter has been looking forward to this day for a long time.  Although I do believe it has more to do with  her appreciation of pie than her love for math; her teacher promised to bake a pie for the student who memorizes the highest number of digits in PI. (more than 90 at last count!)
So here is my contribution:
I've been meaning to practice my hand lettering skills...



A lot of things are in the works around here, even if this space is rather quiet.
This is a rough sketch for an assignment I'm very excited about. I get to do the cover and interior black and whites for a rather intriguing chapter book - I'll tell you more when it comes out.


happy monday!

something fun and colorful to start off the week...

Hi little blog!
 I'm very happy to be doing black and white illustrations for a chapter book - one of my favorite things. (more on that later, of course) So almost everything on my desk lately has been black and white; pencil drawings, pen and ink, and some silhouettes and papercuts. I'm also learning about patterns and drawing a lot.

As early spring flowers pop up around us though (I know, the perks of a southern life...), I've been experimenting with my watercolors and it's been a lot of fun.

I'm even on Instagram now, check it out!
