The theme for this week's Illustration Friday is "Pioneer". My take on it may be kind of goofy, but it totally inspired the idea for my new character "Howard the almost Impossible". I may just write more about this little guy and his failed attempts to be cool. Fun stuff.

Stormy Weather

just a little something I've been working on... still a work in progress. I'm experimenting with different AI techniques.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah everyone.

I really should have taken the time earlier in the season to design some holiday cards. Instead, I sent out a bunch of Edward Gorey boxed cards. So lame. To soothe the guilt- I worked on this illustration and sent it via email to clients.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

getting hairy.

So this was fun and challenging and creepy. While doing research, I had that constant feeling of bugs crawling on me! Ha! But I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the result. This particular client really pushes me to do better work and I love working with her. If you have any competitive swimmers in the family, you'll want to check out her website: H2OTOOS. This particular tattoo is in development, but there are plenty others to choose from.

I really love my client list right now. Working with good people that make you want to do your best is a gift. In my career I've discovered that these people are few and far between.

"I've Arrived" Birth Poster

I'm currently working with a business partner to launch some new children's gift products. As I've mentioned in earlier blogs- one of our first successful pieces is a Birth Announcement poster. The print is 8x10 in an 11x14 frame with a ribbon handle. For ordering information, please visit the new business website:
Its very exciting and we hope to add new products after the holidays.

There are four designs to choose from and each print is customized to show a newborn's name, birthday, weight, etc.

We've been getting some great feedback and interest. So *fingers crossed* for continued success. Any advice from my fellow artists on how to get more exposure would be welcomed.

Happy Holidays everyone!
