home alone


Happy Thursday. I've been doing a lot of painting in the studio since work has been slow, trying to get as much done as possible before this baby comes. I've been pretty happy with the outcome and will hopefully be able to show a few pieces here soon.


I want to take this opportunity to announce a collaborative project that I've been working on for a while with Sara Brum of Sticky Lift called "LittleLift". It's a combination of my illustrations and Sara's layering of paint and tape.

This Friday, May 29 LittleLift is having it's debut show at Una Mae's in Los Angeles. Please come out and see the work if you're in the area. If you can't make it the work will be up for a few months so there is time to catch it and Una Mae's is one of my favorite Los Angeles boutiques. WinWin!

Here are some examples of the work.




You can view the entire collection here.

I had to draw this yesterday after a friend sent me this clip

Our little getaway was perfect! There was an amazing seahorse exhibit at the Monterey Aquarium and the beach at Carmel was awesome (although the water was far too cold). Wish I had taken more pix.

outta here


A little sketchbook for your Thursday.

Tomorrow is my birthday and I'm heading north out of LA with with some loved-ones for a much-needed mini-vacation. I hear this is the best time to do that kinda thing since I'm still "comfortably pregnant". This is also my favorite time of year to drive up through some of the beautiful CA countryside and coastline so I'm really excited. I plan on bringing my sketchbook along but I never manage to get as much drawing done as I should. However there will most likely be lots of pictures upon my return.

Unfortunately being gone this weekend I'm missing some interesting shows here in LA such as:

“Wishing Well” from Jennifer Davis + “Pretty TV-Love” from Kristen Schiele + “Magic Hour” from Jill Simonsen at the Cerasoli Gallery

Timothy Karpinski at the POVevolving Gallery

and Jeana Sohn at the Taylor De Cordoba Gallery

If you're in LA check out Sour Harvest or your favorite LA gallery listing resource for other goings-on and let me know how they are!

Have a great weekend!

For those of you interested I just wanted to report that the Ellen DeGeneres show was AMAZING and the whole audience got hooked-up with a TON of really expensive baby stuff. Without going into too much detail some of the highlights were a really expensive stroller, a highly-rated car seat, a crib from target, Dwell bedding, and a washing machine! Lots of other wonderful and helpful supplies. It really saved me since work has been slow and I was wondering how we were gonna pay for some of this stuff. If you plan on getting pregnant I highly recommend making sure you are pregnant during mother's day and applying to be on the show :)

Not art related:
Today is going to be a strange day! I've been invited by a friend to go to the taping of the "baby shower/mother's day" episode of the Ellen DeGeneres show.
I'm definitely an Ellen fan so I'm pretty excited and I understand that there are going to be some cool giveaways. Just had to share!
