More Red

I don't know why, but apparently I am liking the color red? At least when I am sketching, any way, because here is another digital doodle I did up that ended up being black, red and white! She was going to to be a zombie, but I think she turned out to be a vampire. All dressed up for the holiday season.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Oh, Christmas Tree?

A favorite customer of mine requested a holiday card! Her only directions: The tree is a giraffe and an elephant decorating it.
My mind was spinning with ideas on how to put this together, and the result...
Well, need I say more! One of the best cards I ever put together! Felt, plastic lights, ribbon and a dash of the wonderful "Joey" fabric (see post below). Another fun one!

Joey T. Bat

I recently finished up an art commission piece! The client has a cute stuffed bat named Joey ( Joey The Bat), that travels all around the world. Joey takes pictures of all his adventures and travels. As a tribute to everywhere the bat has been, Christopher, Joey's human friend, has put together artists' renditions of Joey, and has shown the work in several art shows and galleries.
I am now pleased to be part of the growing art collection! From some fabulous oils to incredible multimedia pieces (one of my fave is a bat made from clock pieces). Any way, without any further ado, I present my contribution to the art show!
Joey is made from a soft fabric and includes a real zipper and velcro. The background is paper-cut and the whale thing is semi-dimensional and double matted. It was way fun to do this piece, as it was completely up to me to figure out what the design and picture would be. I was given free reign to do whatever, as long as it featured Joey! I was given inspiration via one hundred pictures of Joey and his adventures.
This was actually my second attempt (I was given plenty of time to do it) and I think I made the right choice in my design (my first lacked a completeness and story for me).
Like I said before, this was a blast to do, and I am so happy that I was able to contribute!
