They Draw & Travel

Here's a fun new project from Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell (the creators of They Draw and Cook).  It's called They Draw and Travel - Maps Illustrated by Artists from Around the World! They have an open call to artists worldwide to illustrate a map of their hometown or favorite place and send it in. They're hoping the maps will celebrate places that are "off the beaten path" and focus on sweet and personal things you won't find in just any guidebook, like a secret swimming hole or the best bench to watch a sunset. Click here to see the maps that have been submitted so far!

Here are my first 2 entries- Salem, MA and Dutchess County, NY

Illustration Friday: Bottled

Took a hiatus from my usual history lesson submissions and did a bit of a self portrait. I like to call this one "Any Given Sunday."

It's been a long winter and I'm feeling a bit confined to say the least. Spring needs to come quickly or I may drown in my wine rack.
