Stitch Rock 2010!

Stitch Rock is less that ONE Month AWAY!

This Saturday, yours truly will be sharing a booth with her long-time partner in crime, Little Lina, at Stitch Rock Indie Craft Fair & Bazaar in Delray Beach, Florida. I will have tons of prints and cards, and original paintings. Come out and support the local artists - we just want to be able to buy more art supplies!

Vintage Pickers Commision

Michelle - final

This is a sweet little commission for Michelle of House of Vintage and Vintage Pickers. She will be using it of her Vintage Pickers business cards. The reason the composition of this illustration is a little wonky is that I needed to be able to isolate all the elements in Photoshop. They can be moved around according to layout needs of different collateral pieces. Otherwise, I would have put the car behind her more.

I love the light gray blue and light yellow ocher together, it's probably one of my favorite color combination. My "Armadillo Dreams" is primarily blue and yellow. Michael Parkes is well known for these colors and so is Dali.

Little Goddesses

I had an opportunity to do a little commission piece for a bellydancing lady and her two beautiful daughters. They had lovely hair and mysterious twinkling eyes, I hope I did them justice.
