my latest promo

This is the front side of a promotional postcard that I sent out last week. It's the image that was printed in the Work/Life 2 book. The back side is black and white and features the same characters doing another activity.

european picture book - la coda canterina

Here's another book from the collection of picture books I picked up in Europe.  I got this one from Italy last fall, and it's about a little boy with a tail.

I love the images in this book so much.  They're simple and beautiful.  I really love the contrast between the black and white textured areas of the drawings and the flat, graphic hits of red.  It really inspires me to try adding flat graphic areas in my own work.  Some of the drawings are a bit unusual and I enjoy that too :)

she walks like a teapot - another solution


Here's another version of the lady who walks like a teapot. 

I got a tablet for Christmas last year and when ever I have some free time, it's fun to play with combining digital elements and hand made textures / line work.  I actually did this a few weeks ago, at the same time as I was working on the painted version

I spent last week working on a really fun project for a client that had me playing with different techniques, and color palettes.  I can't post about it yet, but once I get the go ahead, I have lots of process to share :)

And, of course there's still that exciting bit of news that I mentioned in a previous post.  I'm just waiting for the contract to be signed before I share it.
