math detective

an illustration i did for angela hill, math detective!

i worked on this non-stop for a day and a half, it was so much fun and i learned a lot in the process… it makes me happy, i hope it does the same for you 🙂

hi there

i’ve been playing around in illustrator and photoshop a lot – i take my sketches and add color and texture – i am getting some really nice results. i hope you like it!

what’s up?

what’s up?

8 x 15.5

my co-worker and a great reference librarian gave me a dozen or so books on contemporary artists and collections of artists. i leafed through some this weekend and it made me want to paint. i threw paint on a few canvases and tonight i painted this little guy on one of them. i hope you like it!

just a fun little one to start the week 🙂

footballers

i really don’t like football, ha! but as i was on my way to work yesterday i passed a park where some kids were playing football – dressed in their uniforms and looking kinda silly but also kind of cute. that’s where the inspiration for this one came from, hope you enjoy!

more fun in photoshop

teaser

back from tech problems and i’m busy with too many projects. instead of a sketch here is a teaser from one of them… its a panel from a page i’m contributing to an anthology called “zine girls of the 90s” i’ve removed the text… i’ll post the finished when its done and approved! 🙂

monster and girl

not a lot of time for art today, so some quick illustrator images for practice 🙂

seat tags

here is another piece of the wedding. i drew a bunch of different little characters, punched holes in them and put fabric between to make cute little seat tags. my mother-in-law helped me tons with this project, i don’t think i would’ve finished them without her.

i had a whole vision for the tags, and my wonderful bridesmaids had to clip them with teeny tiny clothespins to twine wrapped around a tree. in the end, i think they looked perfect!

thanks to angela for the lovely photo.

 

i can’t believe it’s over. i miss everything and everyone! i am very excited for our life together and all of our creative projects. to some degree the wedding itself felt like one big creative project – i hope all our projects individual and shared will be just as successful. <3
