Flights of Fantasy

I recently finished the cover illustration for Thomas J. Kenney’s newest children’s chapter book series, Flights of Fantasy.

 

 

Ouch

I’ve hurt my foot. As my bed is where I have been spending most of my time, the view from my bed has been my recent subject matter. Let’s hope I heal quickly, or drawings of my feet will consume my blog.

Drawing Distraction

This drawing is being posted as a distraction from the fact that I haven’t updated in almost a month. It is not that I have not been making art. I have been painting every day. I’ve been painting so much that updating my blog has not been a priority. Soon, within a week or two, I will be posting pictures of the largest painting I’ve ever created. It is a sixty foot mural, and it is almost complete. Until then, here is an ink drawing of a kitchen stove.

Hello November

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and somehow I have not managed to update my blog yet this month. I am sorry. Here is a page from my sketchbook to break my artistic silence.

Featured above is my purse, a stapler, and a calculator depicted in pen, marker, and colored pencil. Sketchbook Saturday lives!

Also, I’ve recently revamped my Etsy shop for the upcoming holiday season. For the first time I am selling prints of my plein air paintings. Take a look.

Hanauma Bay

This is the fifth and final post about my fantastic trip to Hawaii.

Hanauma Bay Park is perhaps the most beautiful place I’ve ever been.

The day spent there was full of snorkeling, site seeing, swimming, and sun bathing. My drawings were quick as I was torn between enjoying the sunny activities and capturing the beauty with my pen.

Here are a few sketches of people I saw while on the The Bus riding to the bay:

Final Destination

From Saint Paul International Airport in Minnesota we got on a plane and landed in Oahu, Hawaii.

Much like my last vacation, I carried a sketchbook everywhere I went. The above painting is of Diamond Head from a beach in Waikiki. Over the next few blog entries, I’ll share with you little snippets of my Hawaiian trip.

The hibiscus is Hawaii’s state flower. They are everywhere on the islands! If you put a flower behind your right ear in your hair, it means you are available. If the flower is placed on the left side, it means you are taken.

In the following drawing I’ve illustrated how Kevin and I drank coffee as a toddler in half a spider-man suit repeatably walked up to the stage and stole a show with his own version of the hula dance.

Remember Sketchbook Saturday?

I never do.

Below is a drawing from my sketchbook made during a Hammonton Arts Center board meeting. My skecthbook and I are still inseperable. Unfortunately, Twitpic seems to see more of its contents than this blog does.
