August 20, 2012

Spotted two especially lovely illustrations in yesterday’s New York Times Sunday Review. One for an article about the environmental impact of air conditioning, by Victo Ngai:

And this one about how to be more productive by taking time off, by Vidhya Nagarajan:

Both of their portfolios are stunning.

Business cards!

April 19, 2012

New Business Cards!

I picked up my business cards from Moo.com yesterday evening!  They’re in East Providence, so it was a short trip over– nice to save money and time on the shipping.

(Well, I should have saved time. Funny story: I was going to post this right when I got home, but I locked my keys in the car in their parking lot. Oh thank you, thank you AAA. I don’t know why I don’t have your number in my speed dial. And thank you to the nice people at Moo who let me hang out inside even though their office was closing.  Anyways, this meant I spent the rest of the evening rushing around. Hilarious.)

I think they came out pretty cute. It was a last minute decision to go with Moo, so I didn’t really take full advantage of the different images option. But I’m happy with the two I picked.

New Business Cards!

I especially love the back.

So thumbs up for Moo– good quality, easy interface, and great customer service.– Even if you don’t lock your keys in the car, they’re still really nice and helpful.

Work in Progress

works in progress

I’m still here! I’ve just got my head down, racing to the finish line, trying to finish up a few projects for the New England SCBWI Conference next weekend.

But here’s a peek at what I’m working on.

Video Monday: Sophie Blackall

March 5, 2012

Video Mondays

Are you familiar with Sophie Blackall‘s illustrations? I knew her from her brilliant “Missed Connections” series, and separately as a children’s illustrator, but I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t realize they were the same person, until today. Sigh. You’d think I would have put it together after spotting the video above, and seeing the cover of the most recent SCBWI Bulletin:

But nope.

It wasn’t until I started writing this that I figured it out. But now I’m thrilled to discover her site and all of her work, including another series “Drawn From My Father’s Adventures,” which looks amazing.

What do you think? Did you already have an illustrator-crush on Sophie Blackall?

Illustration News

Happy New Year!

Some children’s illustration news I thought people might be interested in!

-Have you gotten your copy of the December Zero2illo Zine yet? It’s all about children’s illustrators and I’m in it! They kindly picked my site for a review and I’m so grateful. 2012 is the year my site will get a proper overhaul and it’s invaluable to get some outside perspective on what’s working and what needs changing. Thank you so much you guys!

-I just signed up for illustration consulting with…Holli Conger!! I’m so excited!! Last year, I was complaining to G (and friends) about missing a “boss”. Which, I know, sounds insane, but it can be exhausting to juggle so many roles. Sometimes you wish for someone to provide some guidance and nudges to keep you on the right track. Perhaps not a “boss”, but a mentor. Anyways, thank you Universe! I’ve been a huge fan and reader of her blog for years. So I’m really looking forward to working my tail off with her!

-Did I ever mention that I found a local children’s writer and illustrator crit group? (Again, thank you Universe.) We’ve had a couple sessions and it’s pretty great. If you’re in the Providence area, we’re looking to add serious kid lit writers and artists.  Please get in touch if you’re interested.

-Heads up: Registration for The New England SCBWI conference in April is coming up! Register here on January 23rd. I’ve never been to this one, but I hear it’s been fabulous in the past.

-Are you doing the Kidlitart #PBDummy Challenge this year? It’s a 25-week-long online group challenge to create and submit a picture book dummy. It starts January 9, 2012 and ends July 1, 2012. After reading the  inspiring post post by Greg Matusic –who I met in person at the Falling Leaves conference– I decided to jump in!

And whaddya think of that little dinosaur guy up there? I’m working on a story for him…

November 28, 2011

tees and prints for kids from Gaia Cornwall!

YAY I’m so happy to finally announce I’m offering PRINTS of my work, as well as, TEES & ONESIES for kids!

I’ve partnered with two wonderful companies: Society 6 and Skreened to do my printing and fufillment. I was originally postponing offering anything until I had my own shop up and running, but then I decided it was just better to get the ball rolling. Baby steps, right? Someday I’ll have my own online space for merchandise, but for now this will work fantastically!

The prints are offered in a variety of sizes, as well as framed, or on stretched canvases ready for hanging.

The tees come in a bunch of kid sizes, as well as onesies, and are all printed on American Apparel, 100% cotton.
