Back So Soon?

Why yes, I am. It's only been 5 days since my last visit and look at me- here again. Who would've thunk? I have two important pieces of business to discuss, the first being another new piece:

Once again, I am title-less. I'm having some trouble naming this batch. And these photos are definitely less than stellar, but you get the idea. But as for the stats- more colored pencil on paper, acrylic paint on board, and some cut paper bits. This one measures 11" x 14". Prints coming very soon.

And the second item of the day is my free pdf download now available over at Indiefixx.

It's of an original colored pencil drawing with some cut paper flowers thrown in there for good measure. If you like it you could totally download it and just look at it on your computer or even print it out. Cuz it's a pdf! A free one. I spoke a little bit about Feed Your Soul: The Free Art Project before but I'd just like to reiterate what a great idea this is and how happy I am to have contributed. So thanks again to Jen for doing it and asking me to take part.

I think that's it for now. I could be back in 4 days or 4 weeks. You just never know.

Hello Again

So I'm pretty sure I'm the worst ever at keeping to a regular schedule around here. But I try, I really do. Like, I think about how I never update on an almost daily basis. And I want to post more, but for some reason I can just never make it happen. That counts for something, doesn't it? Like an A for effort. Right?

But while I am here I might as well show you a little bit of what I've been up to. I'd love to say I've been lying on the beach and lounging around pools drinking cocktails for the past few weeks but the weather here has been shit, so I've been working. I've got a new series of illustrations going on and here's a peek at the first fully completed piece.

I haven't titled it yet but the collection as a whole is called "At Sea". It's a series of water/beach/under-the-sea sort of images and so far, so good. I'm actually really enjoying using some COLOR! Things were getting a little beige for awhile, and while I do love my neutrals this is a nice little change of pace.

So this piece is a colored pencil drawing on paper adhered to a painted acrylic ground with a few cut paper pieces here and there. It measures about 9 1/4" x 12 1/2" on illustration board. The plan is to have prints of this, and at least 3 of the other new illustrations by the end of next week. There, I said it out loud so now it has to happen. Fingers crossed.

And in other news, our TV kicked it a couple months back and we finally got a new one! Isn't it amazing?!

Unfortunately it's not HD, but we're making the best of it.
