Elephant Day and a Doodle

Elephant Day 2015  Illustration
I love drawing elephants! At one point, I had way too many elephants in my portfolio, but recently I realized that there are none now. I'll have to remedy that situation.

I've been able to fit some fun creative playtime into my week. I made a small collage painting (you can view the video here). I doodled in my sketchbook. Something I don't usually do, but I was inspired by the Sketchbook Explorations class by Lisa Congdon on Creativebug.

Here's a little snippet from a work in progress I finished up this week.

With the help of my mom, husband, and son, I finally got this quilt basted. Now I'm waiting on the elves to come and quilt it for me. The fabric is by BariJ.

I hope you've had a creative week also!

Working on character

I can't show most of what I'm working on right now, but one thing I can show is this little lady. She's currently starring in a story I'm working on. I think she's up to no good.

Blog? What blog?

Poking my head up for  a quick hello. I've added a couple of new black and white pieces to my website.

Monday is starting with a bang.

The last week has been a whirlwind of possibilities and good news. 
My head is spinning! I'll be able to share at some point early next year, I hope. 


One of the things on my to do list was to get my Etsy shop up and running again. I have original paintings and prints of my illustrations. I'll be adding a few more prints this week. Please take a look and see if there's something that's just right for gift giving or receiving.

You can read my post-PiBoIdMo post on Tara Lazar's Picture Book Idea Month 
blog and comment there to win my Winter Dancing print. It's my first bit of public writing 
outside of this blog and let me tell you it is nerve wracking!

Win this print on the PiBoIdMo blog!

I have fantastic news! I am now represented by Justin Rucker of Shannon Associates! I'm thrilled to be part of such a wonderful agency. I have been a fan of their artists for a long time and am proud to be included amongst such talented people. I'm looking forward to a long and successful partnership.

This has been a long journey for me and I'm so happy to have reached this goal. Now on to the next one.

And because every post should include art, here is a completely unrelated sketch.
