Babybug Magazine!

I'm so glad to finally be able to share this with you! I illustrated the cover & one interior spread for Babybug Magazine May/June 2012.

You can read all about it here on their blog. I've also added some new art to my website.

Nervous Tic

I ran into an old college friend the other day and she invited me to display my work in the next show at Psycho Donuts. I've never been there, but I've had a lot of people tell me I should sell my work there. I'm taking it as a sign and said YES! The theme is 'Bugs'. I am having so much fun working on these paintings!

Sketching: An Elephant and a Mouse

I'm working on some character sketches just for fun.

More sketching

I met with Tracy Bishop again for a sketch date today. We usually meet to draw from life, which has been a great way for me to get over my FEAR OF DRAWING IN PUBLIC. Today, we both used the time to work on some personal projects. I've been up to my ears illustrating organic gardening books lately, so I haven't been creating characters like I used to. I was so happy to let these guys out!

After sketching, we hit our local kids' bookstore, Hicklebee's. Love that store! I've had this book, When Blue Met Egg, on my list of must buys for a couple of months. It's illustrated by Lindsay Ward, who used to work at Hicklebee's, by the way. I love her use of collage!

Sketching: Bassett Hound

Inspired by a neighbor's Basset Hound the other day, I started sketching.

I'm hoping to develop this guy some more. They're so goofy looking, they beg to be illustrated.

Sketching: A Girl & a Cat

Working on getting my sketching mojo back. As you can see by the dates, these were done over a two month period. As I said, I need my mojo back.

I hope you all have a Happy Easter! Today starts our Spring Break and I'm so excited! I get to sleep in! That's my favorite part. I'm hoping to do some fun things with the family on our Staycation.

I'm spending a lot of time at volleyball games lately, so I'm taking full advantage of all this waiting.

Below is my number one fan, my 10 year old. He was so excited to see me 'scribbling' and ending up with drawings that look like something. I'll take any encouragement I can get. Sketching in public is scary!
