New map illo

Just completed this map for a travel magazine. It was a fun project and I enjoyed giving it a vintage feel.

The Cover that didn't make it

I've been working on this book cover for the past few months. There were long delays between my submitting art and the client giving feedback. I had a lot of fun with the hand lettering, drawing and incorporation of ephemera. But in the end it got axed in favor of more contemporary photography. Bye bye Mozart. I hate to see you go! :)

Backward Town

This is a new piece I developed for my children's portfolio. I am back at SVA this semester taking another class with Monica Wellington. This illustration was inspired by a poem by Mary Ann Hoberman. It was a lot of fun.

Miss Freckles-Felinas Wildis :)

Sometimes it's very easy to see how my tiny 6 lb. cat could be related to a jungle cat. Check out the pose on her! LOVE it!

little vignettes

I've been doing these little story telling illustrations lately. Tiny tidbits of writing about the characters I paint. Some of them made it into a promo I sent out.

Vintage Ad

Love this!

Hand lettering

This is a piece I recently completed for The Knot (a wedding magazine here in the US).
I had a lot of fun with this assignment and get more and more calls for this sort of approach. It's time consuming, but if my clients are happy, then I am happy. It started with an ad I did for Domino a few years ago. I want to explore hand lettering more and attempt some that is a little less feminine and can appeal to a broader audience.
