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!
