Christmas, Creative Market, illustration, surface design

I just opened a shop on the Creative Market site. I have one lonely group for sale but now that the shop is set up I can add some of the artwork that I’ve been working on lately.

New Illustrations

book, children's illustration, illustration, Uncategorized

I have just added some new work to my site. The artwork is for a Hallmark book titled “I Love You Anytime!”. The book can be personalized with photos of an adult and child that are placed inside the back cover. They will show through holes that are die cut on each illustrated page.  It is such a cute format idea and a child recipient would get a real kick out of it. Hallmark has produced several books in this line. Take a look at the artwork under my Kids Art tab.

folktale, illustration

I created a book cover illustration of the folktale “The Little Red Hen” for self promotion and had a few postcards printed. “The Little Red Hen” story has always been one of my favorites.  I have definitely identified with her on many occasions in my life. I’m hoping to do a series of covers for traditional tales.

Pierre Belvedere Product Samples 10-29-12

Wow! These just came in the mail. I am totally impressed. Pierre Belvedere produces very fine products and I’m thrilled and honored that they have used my artwork. I created a repeat pattern for them called “Seedheads” that was used on a padded matte finish journal cover and various temporary skins for applying to laptops, i-pads and i-phones. You can see them *here* and *here*.

children's illustration, drawing, illustration

I’ve been busy with several projects lately and haven’t posted for awhile. I should not over think this activity and just throw something out there. I want to share some preliminary sketches that were created in preparation for some finished artwork that I did recently. I love doing pencil sketches and I love seeing other artists sketches. In my case they usually have so much more energy than the finished pieces.
