Spot Illustrations

Well hello! Here are 4 of 6 spot illustrations I've just completed for Cleveland Magazine. It's for an article discussing private schools, and places where learning actually takes place.
This one is "The Great Outdoors."

"At School." I tried to keep these pretty simple, as they'll be printed somewhat small...

"Beyond Borders."

"In the Workplace."'s how the sketch phase looks!

Clay/Art News!

I got to meet one of my all-time favorite illustrators, Chris Sickels of Red Nose Studio.

It's so inspiring meeting other clay artists!!!

Me being cheesy. (...Is that an autographed Look Book you're holding?)


I've signed up for Art in the Park! (I'll get the official word in about a week....cross your fingers!) It's a huge outdoor art/craft show in northern Kentucky, and I've been preparing & framing my polymer sculptures to *hopefully* sell.

....and finally, here's the next step in my illustration. Still tweaking things a bit. Final + spots due Monday!

Have a good weekend ;~)

Clay in Progress!

Here's what I'm currently working on! Part of a full-page illustration for a magazine article about schools, and where learning actually takes place. This is a fancy, fancy private high school in Hudson, Ohio.

I'll post the finals soon!

Sketching away....

Working on a Tshirt design! This is cut out from a sheet of freezer paper..... I wonder if this design has waay too many tiny little details for spray paint! ???

A page in the life of my sketchbook. A full-page spread + 6 spots all due this Thursday! I'm looking forward to showing you those finals. ;~) OK--back to work!
