It's a new year....


Hello internet-world! I haven't posted in months, being so busy with my new job at LookLoveSend.com (I'm their Art Director now, in addition to creating invitations for them) and juggling various illustration projects (which I can't share just yet) and also signing on again with Eugene Textiles to create some great new quilting fabrics. Oh yeah, I also no longer have an agent and am doing it on my own! And I'm deep into preparations for SURTEX 2012 in May, and this year I have a booth all by myself :) YIKES. ok, breathe...

Last month I finished my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project and mailed it in to the Brooklyn Library. I was able to go back, after I finished the pencil sketches and a little ink, and fill in some parts with color (colored pencil) and I'm happy about it. The cover turned out great I think, though the inside pages weren't as accepting of colored pencil.... ok I guess, but the kraft paper of the cover showing through the colored pencil is just delicious.

Here's my story, from start to finish. Enjoy!
