Dare Wright’s “Lona” ~part1

I remember this book in the library when I was little. I’ve searched for it for years, but couldn’t find it for a price I was comfortable with. About a year ago my husband and I came across a copy in a little bookstore for $25 and snatched it up. Dare Wright was the author…

DIY Couture by Rosie Martin

Ok, so I’m super into this. For Valentine’s Day I asked Mikael for “DIY Couture” by Rosie Martin. I’d been looking at the amazon preview for a while, but I already have so many sewing books that it was going to take something special to entice me to buy. I’ve been hit with sewing book…

Amelia’s Magazine | PPQ: London Fashion Week A/W 2013 Catwalk Review

Check out my illustration for Amelia’s Magazine | PPQ: London Fashion Week A/W 2013 Catwalk Review. I was really excited to work for them! I have a print issue from about 10 years ago that I treasure and they were one of the first magazines I started watching when I got into illustration 6 months ago.

Remember the Good Times- illustration published

My illustration for “Remember the Good Times” has been published and is up at the “Story Shack!” I had a great time illustrating the story by Andrew Newall- without giving away the ending 😀

Mysterious Maps Tour~ via the Sketchbook Project

Kind of nervous. I chose a tour for my sketchbook to go on: “Mysterious Maps Tour.” I decided to title it, “Here be Dragons.” I am mapping the interior world of the mind and showing its connection to the body. It’s an art project that I’ve been wanting to do for over a decade so…

V is for Valentine

My husband and I exchanged gifts on tuesday. We have a set budget and simple desires. He wanted another Elric book, along with a DC reprint “Ghosts” and the Mars Trilogy by Burroughs. I asked for a book of prints by Ernst Haeckel and “DIY Couture” by Rosie Martin (book reviews for both later.) Last…

“Daleks! A Whosical” promotional art

I had the pleasure of creating some promotional art for “Daleks! A Whosical” {check out their facebook group page!} I also discovered I hate drawing Daleks. They are really detailed. You wouldn’t think it to look at them bc they’re basically Nazi trashcans, but yes, very detailed. Seriously, Rose took about 20 mins bc she’s just…

Illustration Age

Hey everyone! Check me out on Illustration Age. They have 3 of my paintings up!

Interview in Chasseur Magazine

I have an art feature and interview in Chasseur Magazine #3. PLease check them out. The magazine is very beautiful with lots of fashion and art editorials. They asked some great questions and commissioned an illustration especially for the issue. I created, “Feather” for them. I was a little nervous bc it was the first illustration I’d…

Donuts vs. Beignets

Donuts vs. Beignets I often get asked if I can draw anything other than pretty girls. Yes, I can. I can also reduce complicated political ideologies to delicious fried food. Hunter S. Thompson said politics are better than sex, but I’m going to bet he always had a mental subtitle: fried dough topped with sugar is better than politics….

Anderson Brothers love fest

I realized today that I never blogged about these. For our Anniversary Mikael gave me “Chuck Dugan is Awol” and the Criterion edition of “Darjeeling Limited.” The Darjeeling Limited is my least favorite Anderson film, but even a weak Anderson film is better than many other films by lesser mortals. Plus, I really wanted to watch “Hotel…
