Cheers


I'll be away enjoying the Holiday in a few days, so posts may be rare next week.
Happy Christmastime, Friends!

Bewildered and Troubled


Yesterday was a very sad and frustrating time at work. We lost too, too many wonderful and talented people to corporate layoffs. A couple were friends and it's really awful not to have them here.
Today continues to be gloomy.

Six New Prints

In the shop!


Also, if you're in the Cleveland area, check out Animals in Art at the Orange Art Center. Sales of art go towards two great causes! The show runs through December 14th.

And I thought it was about time for this journal to get a new look. How do you like the simpler format?

Tea Bear

Inspired by my own unfortunate current bout of intense coughing and sneezing and the warm drinks that soothe.

Celebratory Friday


A family member made it through a vital surgery last night, the weekend is very close and I'm feeling cheerful - it's a good day!
Happy Birthday, G'ma :)

Another Poster


The bright blues and lavenders didn't really show up after I converted it to RGB, so just pretend the colors are richer than you see...

Buy Handmade!

Poster for a work-related event. The font is all drawn by hand - yay!

Sorry for the blank days between posts - I've been a little overwhelmed with wedding planning, recently. It's fun to design the event in my head (something I never did as a little girl), but the actual putting together of resources in real-life is alarming! I'm lucky to have such fabulous parents to help me out... Cheers!

Midwest Plushform Show

Come one, Come all!

I'll have a silly Edgar Allen Poe plushie in the Shoparooni show on Friday night and in Carol & John's Saturday night.

"The show will open at Shoparooni on Friday, November 7th from 8 pm to 11 pm, and at Carol & John's on Saturday, November 8th from 8 pm to 11 pm. Both shows will close on Saturday, November 29th, from 8 pm to 11 pm. The Plushform Show will be used as a fundraiser for noted charity "Toys For Tots", with 50% of all proceeds from the show being used to purchase toys to donate to Toys For Tots. "

Looks like there are tons of great artists participating!

Walk-A-Thon for KEYS


This was a freelance project for KEYS For The Homeless Foundation - a lovely non-profit organization that benefits the homeless in Washington, DC.
Thanks, Dotty!

Beer, Girls & Ink

Some rough figure drawings from Dr. Sketchy's. It's been a verrry long time since I last sketched from live models, so I felt rusty, indeed! But great music, friendly company and tasty beverages helped make it a fun event. Link

The Deterioration Of A Wedding Brainstorm

This is what happened when my fiancé and I attempted to do some collaborative sketches for our save-the-date announcements...




...yep.

But never fear - it all worked out. The announcements are being printed as we speak :)
