Three Hundred and Twenty Five!



For those of us that post our artwork online, sometimes it gets really difficult to post for the pure fear of someone stealing your artwork and claiming it to be their own. The more I venture into this illustrative world the harder everything becomes regarding posting. I know that you can copyright things but does that actually do anything, I mean once its on the internet I feel like it’s a free for all. Anyway, I was super happy with the way this image turned out. It started from a tiny sketch of a bird with garland and developed into this fun birthday piece. The colors really work for me here, they are bold and fun and I think would draw a kid right in. I mean think about it a little bird flying around your birthday party hanging decorations? I would lose my mind! Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred and Thirteen!

Yesterday was one of those days where I needed to go to bed at like 2 in the afternoon, but somehow managed to keep pulling energy stores from the most hidden nooks and crannies of my body. When I started painting this image I tried to tell myself “don’t worry if you do not finish it, it will still count as a day” but in the end I could not stop painting until I felt it was complete enough. Naturally, that meant that on a day when I woke up at 4am I stayed up until after 11pm only to be back up at 3:50am. Needless to say I am a walking zombie  and could at any moment fall asleep; maybe while typing this post, washing my hands or attempting to eat toast, who knows! The motivation of a treat this afternoon is currently keeping the wheels turning, a delicious iced coffee from my most favorite coffee shop in the world, Yes please. Thank you P.S. Deli for existing. Anyway, enough about my lack of sleep, the image below is another study on mice. These images are just sample illustrations meant to someday be used as reference points. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Nine!

Decided to draw in bed this time. Winter has definitely taken a toll on me, whether it be mental or physical could be debated but either way I’m exhausted. At times in the evening I find myself drifting away into a space filled with random thoughts, ideas or images. Last night, when I closed my eyes in bed I started to image a creature. Somewhat like a bird, kind of like a skeleton but having roots in the human figure. The face came first and I think its apparent as it seems the most thought out or maybe it appears that way because that was already an image in my head. Either way the image developed from there and what made it fun was the lack of thought. No stress,  just me, a pen and a sheet of paper.  Enjoy and see you next time.
