Fun updates!

Life has been chaotic but productive lately!  But I always feel like I could be doing more when it comes to illustrations, so I'm promising myself to finish a couple of planned projects before the end of this week.  Here are some quick updates of what's been going on.

This image was created for the American Academy Chapter of the Society of Illustrators and their show, Temptations.  I forced myself into a tight deadline and didn't get to save images of the process as I hoped to.

I'm still freelancing for the Chicago Children's Theatre and and I wanted to show a sneak peak of the cutout I am making for their next play, Harold and the Purple Crayon.  For more information about that, go to the Chicago Children's Theatre website.  This one was finished much faster than the one I did for A Brown Bear, A Moon, and A Caterpillar.

I also got a job teaching at Unicoi Studios in Chicago!  I've worked a couple days already and I'm really excited!

This image is for the upcoming AAART ISC Show Thursday July 19 at American Academy of Art.  The theme was temptation and I chose to do an "Adam and Eve" inspired story but with the Mediterranean fruit of temptation; figs.  I originally created this with pencil (a medium that's starting to bug me) and watercolor.  I have to find pens that don't die on me or leak everywhere. The rest is colored in digitally. 

I was really hoping to create an in-depth process blog entry, but life got in the way.  Hopefully I'll update and fix my website soon, more stuff from Chicago Children's Theatre, and more!

Thank you cards and updates

Things have been crazy lately, in a good way.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to create any personal work as I hoped, but I will have work from Chicago Children's Theatre as soon as work is finalized.  For now, here are some images of the thank you cards I created after graduation.
