I did another fun piece for the NY Times Sunday Review section this weekend, all about binge-watching tv, and addiction to series like Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and House of Cards. Below is the finish and a couple of sketches that weren’t used.
I’m so proud to announce that my 2-person show with the amazingly talented Shannon Bonatakis is coming up quickly at Gallery 1988 East! More details and sneak peeks to come, but here’s the official flyer below.. Can’t wait!
I did another quick illustration for the NY Times Op-Ed section. The piece was written by an airline stewardess who opposes T.S.A.’s decision to allow passengers to carry small knives.. I had fun coming up with ideas for this one!
It’s been an insane few months, between trying to crank out paintings for my upcoming show at Gallery 1988 and the few freelance gigs I can squeeze in.. Let’s just say my house is a disaster, sometimes Iwear sweatpants until 2pm, and I haven’t had a haircut since, well, I can’t remember.. But my hair’s so long, I could probably go topless outside and not be arrested.
Anyway, this week I was able to do a quick illustration for the NY Times Sunday Review section, b/c I needed a break from painting & I loved the article entitled, “Is There Life After Work?“ Special thanks to the wonderful Aviva Michaelov, who art directed!
I’m more than thrilled to be a part of Press Paws, a charity art show taking place on February 9th, at Gallery Nucleus. All proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to the ALL volunteer animal rescue, Whats Up Dog LA. Each artist was asked to pick their favorite animal from a video game & create a piece based on it.. I chose a Spiny from Super Mario Bros, who I always found to be both cute, and sort of annoying. :)
More info on the great event, and a chance to donate HERE.

Things have been a little slow here on the blog, but then again, very busy in my studio! I have two, sorta-secret projects in the works (more on that a little later), and I’m trying to take a few fun freelance jobs along the way. This week I did a little piece for the Bloomberg View, on the historical vs. modern interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. Read it HERE.
In fun news, my husband and I bought the tiniest pickup truck of all time. It’s ridiculous. Anyway, I’ll have a bit more info after the holidays about the cool things happening in 2013. Until then, have a very warm, safe, & Merry Christmas!
I did a quick little illustration for this weekend’s NY Times Letters Section, about the Romney ‘gifts comment’.
I remember making these in Girl Scouts way back when, so illustrating these step-by-step instructions for Martha Stewart was a lot of fun. Although I would suggest adding clothes to yours, because they sort of have a voodoo doll thing going on without them.
I did a fun little piece for the Times Op-Ed last week about being gay in the deep South. Special thanks to art director, Matt Dorfman!
This week I worked on a fun little illustration for the Times Sunday Review ‘Letters’ section about Americans & selfishness. I actually worked on two pieces for them this week, but one of them got killed.. As is the world of freelance!
I was recently asked to illustrate step-by-step instructions for 4 different types of braids in the August 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living. It was a fun change of pace for me, after weeks of sitting in my studio painting.
I have to say though, I was able to figure out how the braids were completed enough to draw each step, but I have yet to personally master a successful fishtail braid. Hopefully her readers have better luck than I did!
This week I took a little break from painting to work on a 3-part series for Bloomberg View. Having short, quick deadlines 3 days in a row was actually a welcomed change, since I’ve been really struggling with one painting in particular.
In other news, there’s lots of awesome stuff coming up for the remainder of summer that I can’t wait to share! Hope you’re having a good one.
