The New Place... coming along.  Here are some snippets of my studio, some parts you might recognize from older posts, only rearranged.  I particularly love what used to be my main corner desk unit is now a long work table with ample storage.  The desktop is a door I'm thinking of painting.  The only thing I'm sort of tired of is all the black, but it suits me fine for now.  I made the bathroom sign which turned out to be a fun but necessary kitsch, because my guests tend to get confused by where it is given our long hall of doorways. The apartment was built before the 20th C with neat details, so maybe as it comes together, I'll post more.

Sketchbook Project: You too?!

If you're like most artists who've jumped on the Sketchbook Project bandwagon, you'll have a lovely bio page like me.  I just started building it so be patient and eventually pages will go up from my sketchbook.  For now, check out the portfolio, my big face, and say hi to my first two familiar Sketchbook Project friends, Andi Butler and Jannie Ho. Hi Andi & Jannie!  Aaah, internets...

Picture Book 10

Here's my latest ad printed in Picture Book 10 below or turn to page 75!  It's actually my first too.  Hope you like it.

Change is Good

As you can see it's been a busy summer.  Can you tell by the Christmas-themed image?

Not that you would know since I haven't posted a lick all season.  But trust me, busy busy as a bee I have been.  Went through a major move from my home of ten and a half years (!!) to a bustling town closer to NYC.   I'm still unloading some things, constantly rearranging and organizing, and it goes a lot slower when you're carrying a load yourself.  

Yes, that's right, I'm sporting a new baby bump (don't know what kind of load you were thinking)!  As of today I'm a week shy of seven months along and due right around Christmastime.  Here's an illustration I did for Amscan a bit ago to commemorate what I've been guessed it, Christmas shopping.  It's a bit different from what I normally do, but what's fun about Amscan is creating art in styles that aren't always your own, keeping things interesting.  Still I do like to put my own stamp on new styles.
