I'm Super excited to finally be able to share this! Art Star was kind enough to approach me about teaming up to make some necklaces to sell exclusively with them. This is especially great as I recently decided that I may not be making brooches anymore because of time and material problems, and since they did all the production for these I didn't have to fight with epoxy like I was with the brooches! Anyway, I'm pleased with what they've come up with and I hope you are too! If you'd like to buy a necklace please visit the Art Star website, or visit their store in Philadelphia.

Another new piece for my upcoming show "Good For What Ails You" at Assemble Gallery in Seattle. It runs April 8th, 2011 - May 11th, 2011, with an opening on April 8th!
It will be nice to have a reason to head up to Seattle, to drop off work and then for the opening. I haven't been there since I moved to the Pacific Northwest (just driven though), I really am a home-body.
After this show I wont have any solo shows for a while, so I'll finally have time to dive back into a few other projects, with some luckily very patient people, that have been put on hold for a while. I'm also excited about finally having more time to think, sketch, and do nothing, which are all important to my creative process.

A journey through Duncan Fallowell's library which has spilled over into every available space and become an art installation in its own right.
A friend shared this with me. I find it very comforting, and I like what he says about real vs. electronic books.

Finally, a peek a new work for a show I have coming up next month. More on that soon. It seems like forever since I've posted a new drawing! That's because I've been working on so many commissions, hopefully I'll be able to show off more of those soon as well.

I was going to try to write something about feeling inspiration, and lack there of, but all the things I have to do today keep crowding into my head and are making it impossible for me to think coherently. So, instead give a listen to the latest episode of Radiolab which has a segment on this exact topic!

As you may have already seen me mention these past few months (and especially this last month) I've been working on my biggest job ever: hand lettering and some illustrations for a new book of Sharon Montrose's beautiful animal photographs. The experience was extremely positive and pushed my comfort zone, which is almost always good for my work in general. This is the cover, with the title etc lettered by me. So far this is all I can show you of the book, but I will be sure to share some of the inside when I'm able. It's set to come out November 22, 2011, I can't wait to see it!

Meet my new camera! I've been unhappy with the quality of my photos for a while, there was always a blurriness, weird color glare, and whatnot. I had this fear though of spending a bunch of money on a camera that may be too complicated for me to use, but I've become fed up enough to get past that. It's high time I started taking the pictures I actually want to take! And you know these days you can get cameras that are beginner friendly and still take amazing photos. I settled on the Nikon D3100 and so far it's love.
(Speaking of beautiful photos, that second picture is a page from my latest cookbook acquisition Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights by Sophie Dahl. I can't wait to make everything in it!)
