I have four paintings for sale at the Soundry for the Cartoon Cult Show. I will have more info and photos once the show has finished.

Also, Happy Holidays to everyone! I made this quick digital painting for all to enjoy. I call it "Winter Calm". Total time- 25 minutes.

Doodle Dump!

I am proud to announce that I am now a graduating senior at the Art Institute of Washington! I will be graduating on December 15, so I have been busy getting together all that I need. On the day of my graduation, there will be a portfolio show for all the graduating students where we have a chance to showcase our work. I am working on a booth with an art nouveau 1920ish theme. The main effort is building a wall, adding wallpaper, and adding the wood paneling/moulding. I will share pictures once the wall is built!

I would share some of my portfolio work, but I think it is best to wait to show all my fine work on my real website. It is a requirement i have one by graduation so it wont be long before I have a gorgeous gallery for all to enjoy.

I will be nice and share some of my favorite doodles from the couple weeks.

Peace to All,

Painting Away!

So I just wanted to update to let everyone know I'm still out here, painting! I've got new glasses, too (see profile!) I knew they were perfect for me when i seen the tiger print on the inside of them, they're adorable.

I have uploaded new work to my place at deviantart:

Follow me...

I will be going back to school next week to scan all the new stuff! Au revoir, darlings.

Baby Canvases II Art Show this Saturday!

This saturday there will be an art show at an awesome place called the Soundry in Vienna, Va. I will have ten paintings at the show, and nine will be for sale! There will be a bunch of other artists there so I know it will be a good time. Anyone is welcome to come, and it is free to get in. So far the paintings I seen looked awesome, especially since they are on such small canvases! Remember, these are only 2"x3" each. I seen prices range from $15-$30 for others, I will have mine available at the show for $15 and $20 depending on the painting.

And lucky for you, and paintings not sold at the show will be available online afterwards. But if you purchase at the show it will be slighty cheaper.

First Art Show! Baby Canvases...

I am really looking forward to being a part of an art show for the first time as a professional artist. The show is called "Baby Canvases II: The Brats are Back!" and it will be held at the Soundry in Vienna, VA. All the paintings from the show are limited to 2" x 3" canvases, so it will be challenging for the artists and interesting for everyone. The show starts June 26th, 2010 at 7pm!

The Soundry Website

I will have 12 paintings for sale at the show. They will be portraits, but NOT done in a realistic style. They will each have a small story behind them as well, almost like a little nursery rhyme or silly poem. Paintings will be around $50, and will be One of a Kind and signed by me. Any painting not sold at the show I will have for sale online.

I will have pics of my mini paintings once I get some finished.

love to all,

Lilly Lashes

Lilly Lashes is a little girl I created a little while ago in my Children's Book Illustration class. I have found myself drawing and painting her a lot since she is basically a pretty little girl with wavy blonde hair who gets to dress up in fancy dresses and outfits of buttons, lace, silf, feathers, and the like. She is always in "La La Land" and couldn't imagine life without her amplified imagination.

Bird is the Word

I know someone who says "the bird is the word" sometimes and I know it is an older saying. I took a liking to it and inspired me to make the illustration above. Watercolors in Corel Sketchpad.

Okay, so after looking at my animation over and over, I decided I want to tweak one small part before putting it online. So you will have to wait a few more days, a week max. I need to get a logo design done for a client as well as a hand painted bear for another.
I painted my mom a picture using real watercolors on Mothers Day, it made me and mom feel good.

"B" For Bella... and Big News?!

And no, not Bella from Twilight. Here is the lastest letter for my alphabet challenge.

In other news, I have been working on my website majorly! It is looking good so far, I almost can't wait until it gets up and running. I am getting all my favorite works together and trying to create new ones for the gallery. If you dont know, my site will be very animated! It is going to look something like the inside of the store Bonnie & Jinx comes from, JuJu Joys. The loading screen will be Bonnie & Jinx in a little slapfight....

Also, I finished a Bonnie & Jinx short! I am fixing small things i think i can improve and it will be online in the next day or so!

Letter Challenge

I have been spending a lot of time working on my website and it has come to my attention that i really want more work to show. I am in the mood to create, and create I shall! I want to have a direction to go in while i am sketching, so I am going to make a sketch/illustration for each letter of the alphabet. Im not going in any particular order, and I'm not going to tell you what I'm going to illustrate for each letter. I'm giving myself until the end of may to finish each letter!

So above is the Letter T for Tutu!

First Blog Post, First Corel Painter Sketch!

I am excited to announce my blog! I thought this would be a good place to show daily sketches, experiments, animations, illustrations, and perhaps some great discussion too.

If you are unfamiliar with my art, please visit my deviantart account!


I have also recently created a youtube account for my animations and a zazzle account for future merchandise! And last but not least, I have bought my domain name and hosting at fritchieart.com ! The website will be up within the next two months!

So the drawing about is my first ever creation with Corel Painter 11. I didn't use any previous versions, but i like what i came across so far although it is very different from Adobe!
