Crazy 4 Cult: New York

I can’t believe this will be my 5th time participating in Gallery 1988′s Crazy 4 Cult show!  I’ve really loved creating work for this show over the past few years, it always gives me a good excuse to rewatch some of my favorite movies.  This year I couldn’t decide between my childhood favorite, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off  & my teenage favorite, Escape From New York.

when I grow up..

I recently went through an old box of childhood drawings/schoolwork (some hilarious finds to come) while visiting my parents, and came across this little gem.  In 1st grade we had to draw what we wanted to be when we grew up.. Minus the black hair, I’d say things came pretty darn close! (b/c obviously I own that outfit)  :D


Work in Progress

I’m really excited (and a little hesitant) to share a little side project I’ve been working on with my husband.  We’ve slooooowly been collaborating on a small line of jewelry.. No set deadline, but we’ve been working on it in between other projects.  Here’s a little peek at an almost-finished prototype– The Shining maze, brass-cut necklace plate!

NY Times Sunday Review : Are Americans Selfish?

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!

Martha Stewart Living – Braid Basics

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!
