It's been a while since I posted!!

I got into grad school at Mills!!!! Whoohoooo!
Despite that, I haven't been producing a whole lot of artwork - I've been working a lot.
Pretty soon all I'll be doing is painting!

This is a watercolor on vintage wallpaper of the assorted blankets, pillows, towels and foam wedges that the woman I work for uses to keep herself in place while she sleeps. I'm planning on doing one of my bike leaning up against Katherine's scooter next. I have a few pictures to use for wood panel paintings lined up, too!

Portfolio Pictures

These are the professional photos I had taken of my work a few months ago.

I'm really happy with this work, but I've finally started onto the next thing. I am working on some watercolors on this beautiful vintage wallpaper I found at the Depot for Creative Reuse. I am currently painting the arrangement of pillows, blankets, towels and foam wedges the woman with CP that I work for uses to keep herself in place while she sleeps. They're very colorful and pretty. It's coming along well, and I'll post a picture as soon as it's done. Yay!!! I'm making art again!!!

Sample Illustrations for Zest Books

So I've been looking on craigslist trying to find illustration gigs, and Zest books, which is a publishing company that makes advice books for teens, has had a few calls for artists. These drawings are for a dating guide for GLBT teens. I really hope I get the job, but if I don't at least they have some of my work on file.

They wanted a drawing of a cell phone:

Tickets to a local band:
A girl who isn't out to her parents telling her mom she's just going to hang out with her friend, when she's really going on a date:
And lastly, two guys on a date, one talking about some heavy environmental kind of thing, and the other looking like he's lost interest/wants to get out of the date:
Also, I'm very close to finishing Alix! I just have to paint her face (eeeep!).

Salami Sandwich Crime Scene

I had a bit of help making this painting. My friend Athena dropped her salami sandwich, which she was very upset about. She started to clean it up, but David Klein (the guy in the green sweatshirt, helmet and cape from a few blog posts ago) stopped her and did a chalk outline of the fallen sandwich, as though it were a crime scene. Then i made some "police line do not cross" tape out of some masking tape that was lying around to put in front of the it, and we left the dining room of kingman like that for about 20 minutes or so.

Here is the beginning of my painting of Alix Black riding her bike dressed as the Campenile. There was supposed to be a co-op bike parade, but me, justyna, alix, and my friend alex who doesn't even live in the co-ops were the only people who came. It was on mothers day, and as she rode past the real campenile on her way to sproul plaza she shouted, "Happy mother's day, mom!"

Geoff again

This is a painting of my friend Geoff dressed up in a bunch of yellow stuff he found in the free pile. He was already wearing the yellow shirt. More illustrationy stuff coming soon, and I'm also working on a watercolor of a sort of paunchy Spiderman with a huge bulge and a hickory farms bag. There is a "salami crime scene" painting in the works, but as it's the first painting I've done in a while that has a background (and no figure, even!) it's turned out the be quite an undertaking!
