first family vacation



seaturtle shaveice goodbyehawaii

we went on our first family vacation. it was equal parts rough and relaxing. traveling with baby was fine, but being hotel bound while baby napped with beautiful hawaii right outside the door was hard! i made the best of nap time by drawing (in the dark!) and even though we didn’t spend enough time in the pool or the ocean, it was hard to leave!

cinque terre


this year we used points and savings to take a dream trip to italy. the hubbahubba’s family traces back there. the highlight of the trip was our week in cinque terre – enjoying limoncello and the beautiful views. we went to a small town in the region that was his great grandmother’s home and i watched him have the experience of belonging that i had when i went to india as an adult. since then life has been busy but i’ve wanted to draw this for months. i’m so happy that i could complete this before the year’s end!

happy, happy new year ^_^

i’m still working on some other projects, but i wanted to draw this image that actually happened to us in kauai – it was magical.

i will be at solano ave stroll this sunday! next weekend i’ll be exhibiting at comikaze in los angeles – booth 1025 – hope to see you there! also, if you have a moment please vote for me to be featured in 7×7 magazine.

have a lovely weekend ^_^

i’m still sick, so this is quick – but drawing does make me feel better!

carry me

another quick one – i’ve been working night and day on images for a feature film (i’m so excited!) and i’m off to new york tomorrow for work – so i will be taking another short break from sketches. but i hope to be back before the end of next week.

hope you have a lovely weekend!
