what i want to look at all the time

This morning while going about my usual blog reading I came across the artist/illustrator Carmen Segovia via the decor8 blog.



I'm really moved by her work. Her online portfolio is here.

More furniture. I'm sketching a lot of furniture lately. Generally I'm always drawing characters and though I love creating characters I'm trying to push myself to find inspiration in other subject matter and experiment more.

Small Hands

It's been a while since I updated the Etsy shop so here goes:

4 new ink drawings as part of my "affordable art" project. The series is called "Small Hands." More info at the shop.

There are still a few sisters who need adopting as well.

of dreams coming true

Though I missed the mustache party last weekend I was excited to find these wooden mustaches from somethingshidinghere on etsy. With all the mustache parties happening it's best to be prepared because everyone hates having to wipe off an eyeliner drawn mustache after to go to another party or club.

Working out an idea for a bigger piece. Originally I wanted to do an oil painting but I think it wants to be an ink and watercolor.

Last week we put some adhesive decals on our bathroom windows and I've been using the scraps as collage material in my sketchbooks.

Scion Show

I'd never been to one of Scion's art shows. It always kind of struck me a little weird that Scion was trying to appeal to it's younger market by, as Mitra puts it, gaining "street cred" off the new art scene; though, at the same time I love that up and coming artists are being supported and taken seriously.

The other reason that Scion is of interest to me right now is this commercial:



There's always a place in my heart for innovative use of and design in CG animation.

So back to the show: Good friends, good art, and the real reason I loved the show so much? Photobooth !! (free btw)

Otherwise I totally forgot my camera so the only images I have are from the booklet:

There were more great artists and I think the show is up until the 21st of July.

something smelling good when I'm hungry!

I just found out about this via Simply Photo blog. Nice idea coming from such a large corporate company.

fresh from the garden

One of my favorite things about the new house (besides the studio) is the backyard and garden. I've never had a garden before so I don't know how to take care of it yet but it's really beautiful. For some reason it's taken me a while to get out there with the camera until this morning:
