A family friend commissioned me to do a portrait of her new child as a Super Hero Bear with a Thunder Bear sidekick. Here are SuperBear and ThunderBear saving slumbering babes from evil creatures that come out at night.
What a fun project and imaginative parents! Plus, I'm finishing another illustration with the same characters, so more from the SuperBear team coming soon!

Recently, (a month or so ago), I moved to a sweet apartment with a friend and fellow illustrator Julia Yellow. We converted the living room into a wonderful studio space. It's been amazing to have this space to work and create! I even moved my sewing machine out of the closet.
Here is an inside look at our shared studio space:

Just got the news that this piece got into the Society of Illustration West 51 contest! It is from a series of illustrations I did for the Rhode Island Monthly Magazine for AD Carolyn Marsden for an article about how to love your pets, and vets that make house visits.

Finished a new holiday card, inspired by the city and country Penguin People and their friends the rodents. What better to do after picking winter berries than to put them in a pie machine, eat a pie, and fall asleep together next to the wood stove?
This gate fold card is 5.75" wide by 8.5" tall and available for a limited time on Etsy!

I had the opportunity of participating in the Young Blood Gallery's Day of the Dead Exhibition in Atlanta, GA. This is my second year being involved in the show, and it's so much fun! I was sent a wooden coffin with the freedom to create anything for the interior.
This year I made a Ghost, a tribute to a friend who died this summer. Around the side walls of the coffin there are 10 small illustrations that tell a story of the life of the Ghost, from birth to death. The stomach of the Ghost has a window into his internal haunting, the love that he left behind.
Here is the "Life Story," illustrations that appear along the walls of the coffin:
If you are in the Atlanta area, please join me for the FINAL Day of the Dead exhibit hosted by Young Blood Gallery and Tweet Design.
