April Showers

I think many of us have been feeling this way in the last day or two... I always figured April showers referred to rain, not snow!

Happy Spring!

Goodbye old man winter! It's the first day of spring and I'm just plain thrilled. Up here by Lake Erie, it's still pretty cold and grey, but I know warmer, clearer, more cheerful weather will be on the way in the next few weeks.


Here's the cover I illustrated for Slovakia, a Slovakian heritage magazine to celebrate the new season. I also created a few spot art pieces for Slovak Rites of Spring, which I'll share later.

Another Easter design of mine for American Greetings, available at Target.

Today is the last day of the Light Grey Art Lab's Great Personality Exhibition! And here’s the second piece I created for the show - a night life street scene.

All though the show is closing, you can still check out the Guardians game that uses all the characters and locations created for the project.

Wish I had been able to see the gallery show in person, but I already feel so lucky to have created and displayed work alongside so many other wonderfully talented artists. Until next time, LGAL!

For those of you itching for the warm air, bright blooms, and sunshine of springtime, here are a set of Easter cards I worked on for American Greetings, now available in Target! I can’t get over how cute they are, with their little faces peeking through the eggs. Technically, they’re for kids, but most of them could really be sent to just about anyone.

Finally get to share the work I did for Light Grey Art Lab’s most recent show Great Personality! This is one of the locations I created - a cozy, eclectic tea bar.

To see more locations, check out the environments online gallery!

You can download the first game, The Guardians.

And here you can find more information about the game, links to all of the collections of artwork and information, extra scenes, the trailer, etc.

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be included among so many other talented artists. What a fun project!

Great Personality!


I was so excited to be invited to create two pieces for Light Grey Art Lab's newest exhibition, Great Personality! The show explores “love, attraction, dating and personality. An awesome group of artists came together to create an amazing set of characters, locations, and personalities.” The work created by this plethora of talented artists culminates in a series of narrative fiction games, which will be playable at the gallery opening. So fun!

I was charged with illustrating two of the locations, which will be used as backgrounds for the game. Here are sneak peek details of my pieces - a cozy, eclectic tea bar and a night life street scene.

Check out the trailer for the Great Personality Dating Game, which (I am excited to say) features both of my backgrounds. Hooray!

The opening reception is tonight, January 24th!

Happy New Year

Wow, I can't believe I've been neglecting my posts since November. Apologies! Holidays and vacations and work and family all conspired against my productivity. But here I am!

The card I made for my Mama's birthday this year:

Brr!

Satisfyingly swathed in snug sweaters, while November nips and numbs with northern storms.

Wishing you all lots of scary fun!

Valkyrie & Thor!

My headdress & shoulder armor are made of layered foam, painted gold, with metal details. My shield is painted cardboard & paper with metal details. My spear is painted cardboard & wood, with gold ribbons & bells. 

John's helmet is layered & sealed cardboard, painted gold. His belt is faux-leather with a sculpted clay medallion. 

Yes, we went through more than a couple cans of spray paint...

Happy Halloween!
