Working on some spot illustrations, pen and ink wash.
I feel like I'm learning a lot about myself these days, and things are falling into place.

It's almost a necessity for me to listen to music, podcasts or audio books while I'm working. It helps tie me to my desk and keep me focused. I'm excited about this series of podcasts I've discovered, I can't even remember where. It's called "Your Dreams my Nightmares"
, and it's an audio side project by illustrator Sam Weber. A series of informal interviews with other illustrators - Awesome.
I picked a long strand of these flowers yesterday on my morning walk with the dog. It grows wildly and climbs over everything. It's Carolina Jessamine, the state flower
My favorite wild flowers are cropping up by the side of the road, but I need to bring a knife to take them home. I'll show you some drawings of those pricklies tomorrow.
This week's Illustration Friday topic: Wild
a little hand lettering to celebrate the explosion of spring...
Here is a little portrait of a new pot of succulents at my house.
I love these guys.
I've been doing some experimenting experimenting, and it seems to be working...
Outside our South Carolina spring is definitely here, everything is covered with a fine sheet of yellow pollen and the temperature is rising. We've signed up for our plot in the community garden again this year, and are slowly starting to plant. The potatoes we put in early are coming up, and there are a lot of them! (squeals of excitement from the kids) I'm hoping the early planting will trick the pests and last years potato bugs will arrive to late...
The prompt "Urban" made me think of Paris, which reminded me of a story I heard on the radio about french efforts to increase biodiversity in cities.
Goat lawn mowers and bees on rooftops, sign me up!

Just in case you were wondering where I went....
Spring Break Art Immersion, always a good time!
Back soon for Illustration friday, and to show off some promo ideas.
'Hope your week was full of art - and a bit messy.
As time keeps rushing on, I'm checking in today with my ideas for the illustration friday topic "Swim".
The first design is in honor of Gertrude Ederle
, first woman to swim the english channel.
The retro swim suit, and a weekend visit to the pool with my seven year old, made me think of water ballet, and the kaleidoscopic patterns the swimmers create. Something to play around with in the future maybe?
Happy first day of spring!
playing around with type and collage this morning....
I love Charlotte.
Look at last fall's arugula! Who knew the flowers would be so pretty....and the bunny's favorite food.
I am a gardening newbie with a perennially shady back yard. Just last week we signed up to keep our community garden plot for another year, and I'm excited about all the possibilities! While I love growing my own vegetables, I think my favorite part about having a garden last year was the flowers. A never ending wealth of zinnias, marigolds and volunteer surprises (gladiolas!).
After I finally got the Beatles song out of my head, the ideas for Illustration Friday's "yesterday" prompt just came pouring in. Does that mean I'm getting old ?
Here's a little teenager with some of yesterday's technology. I was very proud of my own walkman cassette player, and it got a lot of use...
(although I don't think I should tell you what I listened too)

After a busy week of helping out with science projects and play practice, I settled in for some drawing, painting and making in the studio. The weather is amazing, and the sun is pouring in my windows.
I carved some stamps and a small plate for printing, and helped carve another little stamp to illustrate a science experiment. - don't worry, these were behavioral studies :)
This note card is a linoleum print with collage flowers. Since I actually left town this week - hurray! - I stopped at a craft store and bought some screen printing supplies: drawing fluid and screen filler. I've been playing with paper stencils, and I'm ready to make something more permanent. Very exciting!
I know, the bunnies again...but how could I resist?
|ink and pencil on paper|
They do seem to be getting along well these days. Unfortunately when I started this drawing they were supposed to be the active subjects of a science experiment (bunny behavior). I guess huddling together in a box is a kind of behavior...
I'm really liking this toned paper I've been using (buff?). I've had it for a while and I'm going to find out what it is and get some full size sheets to work on a bigger project.
This little drawing is part of a series we'll call "besties"
Whenever I look at it now, I will remember my seven year olds recent obsession with dance.
She's especially intrigued with tap, so we did a you tube instructional video, and lots of viewings of "Singing in the Rain". Aaah, the beauty of the internet.
This week I'm ahead of the game...or at least on time.
inspired by this doodle found in the bottom of a first grader backpack:
In honor of my family's first community theatre experience (not counting the letter I earned in high school for painting sets....)
Have a wonderful day !
I was planning on doing this one in color, but let's just move on, shall we...
autobiographical cheese "wheel"
When you're in first grade you have to get creative to be able to make 40 valentine's and still have fun.
Here is my valentine to you, dear blog. Playing around with my color palette....
I had so much fun with this image I ended up killing it in the end, but I do still like this little corner...
and sometimes it is the process that counts
good morning, here are some curious kittens to start your day.

I think valentines day should be about celebrating the people and things that make you happy.
Happy day to you, actually, take the weekend! We are off of school for 4 days.
driving my daughter home from Alice in Wonderland play practice this week, we were followed by this cheshire cat moon
I had never seen it like that before....
Looking forward to Illustration Friday; "wool" a perfect topic for me.

"wool" reminds me of a stack of packages that was left at my door last friday:
Surprise, it's a new book!
