Racing against the clock

The Sketchbook has to be postmarked for tomorrow and I still have 2 spreads to fill. Yikes.
Here's a quick illo of Sunny von B├╝low. Poor Sunny. Also did a rendering of Edith Wharton today... not quite finished with it yet.

another sketchbook entry

another spread in my sketchbook for the 2012 Sketchbook Tour.

Wallis Simpson- the Duchess of Windsor (but not "Her Royal Highness".)
I really hope I can finish this sketchbook before Jan 31st. It's getting a little tight.

ooh La La!!

Nate and Salli are up to their usual tricks, they just launched a new map illustration competition.
Check it out HERE.

My head is going to be spinning until I figure out exactly what I want to do. Methinks a historical map might be a mistake for this particular contest.... I REALLY want the Pentel prize!!

Join in the fun!!

Product Development

Product Development is done SO far in advance, I never know when I can show pictures- stumbled across some photos of gifts I designed last year.

Sketchbook 2012

Working on my sketchbook for the 2012 "Sketchbook Project". For more info- click HERE.
My theme this year is "Time Traveler". So, of course, I'm drawing some of my favorite historical figures. Here's a sample of a spread on Katharine of Aragon. Tragic, but fascinating tale. Google her.

Recipe for TDAC

Just sent this over to Nate & Salli at TDAC. My husband and I tried so hard to get our son to like green veggies, but this is the ONLY one he will eat. Finicky Finn the Picky Pickleberry.

New family member!!

We adopted a beautiful boy from the Baypath Animal Shelter in Hopkinton, MA. His name is Henry Thomas- he'll be 2 in March, and we couldn't be happier about his arrival today. He's got his own little space next to my drawing table!!
