You make my day award!

Wow! Thank you Paige Keiser who has awarded my blog with the "You Make My Day Award" from over at the Fox in Socks blog. This is really quite an honor since Paige is the one who inspired me to begin blogging in the first place.

So to continue the trend, here are the details:

1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day.
2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.
3. Display the “You Make my Day Award” logo
4. Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.

And I have chosen the following artists to receive this award, because they brighten my days with their wisdom and talent and give me inspiration to continue the creative journey I'm on.

1. Stephanie Roth

2. Grace Lin

3. Eric Orchard

4. John Nez

5. Elizabeth Dulemba

Crazy busy

I'm busy, busy with deadlines but I got a decent job from Scholastic yesterday from this sample on TheIspot. Ya just never know--what may speak to one art director, may not at all to another...

Fabrics in illustration

I have been playing around with fabrics in my work recently. I painted with acrylics and then scanned in fabrics and placed them digitally. That way if I didn't like the outcome, my painting would still be intact. Here's the original sketch and then the finished piece as well.

Happy New Year!

It's time to start a new year. I have deadlines looming but I thought I'd post a personal piece I did for a new dummy.
