Some of My Recent Work

I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I thought I’d do a quick little post to show you some of the things I’ve made while I’ve been MIA.

I’ve been participating in a Moley Group Swap on ATCs For All. If you are unfamiliar with a Moley Group Swap it is a group of about 10-12 artists and we all buy a Japanese Moleskine Sketchbook (Accordion Style) and each artist chooses a theme for their journal. We then mail our journals off to each other to complete a 3-page spread in each book. Here are the pages I have done so far.

This one I just finished yesterday for Waffle’s book. Her theme was Suzi Blu Style Pretty Girls.

Suzi-Blu-Girl-Waffle-lgThis next one I did in Bluesky’s book. Her theme was In the Style of Cori Dantini.

Cori-Dantini-Bluesky-lgThis one was done for TheWeaversHand. Her theme was Altered Magazine Pages. The jellyfish were cut out from a magazine. I embellished them with gel pens and painted the background. I also wrote some information about jellyfish on the page.

Jellyfish-Theweavershand-smThis last one was for my book. My theme is Hometown Landmarks.

Agri-Empire-SpreadI also participated in an In Memory of Edgar Allan Poe and an Egyptian Gods & Goddesses ATC swaps on Illustrated ATCs. These are the ATCs I made.

Sharing Art

So, a friend of mine on AFA (ATCs for All) put out a call for artwork. She has a friend who has been feeling depressed and lonely lately and wanted to cheer her up. So the theme of the art is supposed to be friendship.

I decided to create some “Love” birds and the style I used is inspired by artist Cori Dantini. I used Copic and Prismacolor Premier markers on a 5″ x 7″ piece of smooth Bristol. I also decided to put a matching bird on the envelope. Here is what I came up with. I’d love to hear what you think.
