These cats are happy. Why are they so happy?
Super List Saturday, August 24, 2013: 8 Baby Animals I Have Observed Recently
These are all things I’ve seen in my yard or neighborhood recently. Did I just draw the alien as a joke or something? Will we ever know?
Tiny Paitings: Moon Bear, 2012. Gouache and acrylic on paper, 2.5x3.5”.
Another tiny painting! This tiny painting is a painting of a bear. It’s a little silly because bears aren’t tiny at all. Bears are the best!
Carry, for Illustration Friday. Ink and digital color, 2012.
"Bears doing absurd things" is now my favorite genre of visual art.
Cheshire Tiger, 2012. Sketchbook page: acrylic and collage on paper. 8.5x11”
A messy little page from my sketchbook. Has somebody done this before?
These are few of my favorite things. An envelope design for promotional mailers I send out to prospective illustration clients (hence the blank areas for addresses and postage).
This is an illustration for an Italian folktale called The Seven Doves, which you can read here. The story is pretty convoluted, but it centers around a girl named Cianna rescuing her seven brothers from various plights, including an enchantment that turns them into (SPOILER ALERT) seven doves. Since the story is so rich in symbolism, I decided to represent animals and objects that are key to the story rather than depicting a moment in the narrative. “Do good whenever you can, and forget it” is the tale’s rather cryptic moral.
This is for the Butts Collective. I think it’s supposed to go on the blog soon, but I have no clue what’s happening there.
More spot illustration! This one is about the rapid proliferation of web and mobile connected devices, which are estimated to exceed the earth’s human population by the end of this year. Full article here.
