Playing Hookie

July 27, 2010

G and I are playing hookie for the day and are off to Brooklyn to see The National play in Prospect Park.  I like it when we remember that New York is not so far away.  Hopefully we’ll squeeze in a trip to the Brooklyn museum as well.

At the very least yummy food and lovely music awaits us!  Happy Tuesday everyone…

Goals Check-in

Yikes, less than a week left in July!  Hmm I still have a few more items to get to on my goal lists… But I did open a Twitter account and I have a new Facebook fan page!  Please stop by and say hello…

Let’s check in with my July Goals:

  1. Work on making portfolios to send around to select clients.
  2. Organize promotions effort.
  3. Work on a new piece for portfolio. I have a bunch of new pieces and plans for more.
  4. Send out a newsletter. (You can sign up here if you’d like!) Its going out before July ends!!
  5. Tidy up my website headers and blog sections.
  6. Finish setting up my online shop. (Other Such Things shop is OPEN right here!)
  7. Work on the shop page of my portfolio site. Its ok for now. But will definitely need more work.
  8. Send out some shop press releases to blogs.

As I mentioned above, my little shop, Other Such Things is now open!   I’ll be adding more work to it as the days go by.  However if you see anything on my portfolio site that you’d like as a print, just let me know!  Almost all the work over there can be sold as prints as well.

Aaaand one more thing, the prints I did for Ripple are still available for sale in my shop as well.  ALL the proceeds go to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill.

Prints for Ripple

July 20, 2010

Here are my prints for the Ripple fundraiser:

Otter Print for Ripple

They’re drawn in pencil and then digitally colored.  The prints are 4×6″ and available after you donate $10 towards the clean up in the gulf.  Go to the Ripple blog for purchasing details and directions.  Remember, ALL the proceeds go to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill.

Pelican Print for Ripple

Note:  These are digital prints, so I’m happy to sell as many as people want, especially as its all going to such good causes.  So even if they’re listed as “SOLD” on the site, just contact me and I’ll get you a print!

Edit: They’ve been sold– Thanks guys!  But I’ll be offering additional prints in my shop to continue to raise money!

Fun Growth Chart

July 19, 2010

Growth charts are usually for kids right?  I don’t think I’ve grown much (in height, hah) lately, but this one seems like fun for everyone:

I'm as big as

I’m as big as…Elvis? A Baby Giraffe?  A Great White Shark’s Mouth Open Wide?  A Fairy?

See?  Way more fun than 5 foot 8 and a half.

Surprise Ball

I am loving these colors!  Especially the red with the pink fingernails in the beginning.

Don’t you think this would make a fun diy gift?

Hello Facebook

July 8, 2010

I was so tempted to never post again, just so those gorgeos Ojos de Dios photos could stay there forever.  Sigh.

However, I was forced to move on because of exciting news– Yes, I’ve joined the rest of society and finally made a Facebook fan page for my illustration work.

New Facebook Fan page

So come be my fan, and say hello!

Pattern Inspiration

July 6, 2010

I’ve been working on a couple of new pieces for Ripple and have been pawing through images for pattern inspiration.  I stumbled across these gorgeous Ojos de Dios by artist Jay Mohler on LAMA Blog.

Pretty amazing, right?  You can buy them online, in various sizes, here.

Fittingly, they look a bit like fireworks.  Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!

July Goals

Mobile

Hello Meetup friends!  I’m back.

June was a busy month for me.  I got my PikaPackage goodies made and sent out,  and I started the Flourish business class.   I’m currently working on getting my online shop, Other Such Things, up and running.  It will be filled with prints of my work and crafty goodies (like that sneak peek above of a mobile!)  I’m pretty excited about it.  I’m planning on the opening coinciding with the release of the PikaPackages, which should be pretty soon.

Anyways, here are my goals for this month.  Yes, a lot of them are repeat-ers, so please bear with me fellow goal makers.

  1. Work on making portfolios to send around to select clients.
  2. Organize promotions effort.
  3. Work on a new piece for portfolio.
  4. Send out a newsletter. (You can sign up here if you’d like!)
  5. Tidy up my website headers and blog sections.  Too much clutter for me.
  6. Finish setting up my online shop. (Sign up for an email alert when it opens, here!)
  7. Work on the shop page of my portfolio site.
  8. Send out some shop press releases to blogs.
