Interview over at Oh My! Handmade Goodness

March 31, 2011

Just in case you missed it, the other day Jessika from Oh My! Handmade Goodness posted an interview with me.

Her questions were:

  • How did you get your start in art and illustration?
  • What inspired you to start offering a portrait service?
  • You have illustrated for a number of magazines, businesses & publications, what has your favorite project been so far?
  • Are you a full time artist or do you juggle another job too?
  • This month we are talking about business & internet ethics on OMHG, as an artist/illustrator have you had any personal experience with issues like plagiarism and copyright? How do you protect your work (if at all)?

Video Monday: The Brick Thief

Video Mondays

via Minor Details

Hi All. Sorry for my absence last week. I was feeling quite ill, and actually took most of the week off– something that’s pretty much unheard of around here.

Anyways, I realized recently that I’ve been showing quite a bit of videos, so why not make it official? And so, “Video Mondays”!  This one’s adorable.

Legos hold a special place in my heart (as they probably do for many of you,) as my brothers and cousins were obsessed with them, and they were a constant throughout my childhood.  This short is brilliant.

For Japan With Love

For Japan With Love

I’m participating in the For Japan With Love blogger fundraiser organized by Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours.  Please click on the image above to donate money to ShelterBox.  (I’ll be adding a badge to the sidebar with the link as well.)

ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. Each large, green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items.

In conjunction with the fundraiser, they’ve also organized a blogger day of silence, March 18th, in memory of the all the victims in Japan.

Please pass this on.

Like everyone else, I’ve been feeling sick about Japan.

International Women’s Day=Pretty Google

March 8, 2011

I hesitate to mention this, as I have mixed feelings about the whole thing, but:

Did you see Google’s header today?  I think this is one of my favorites.  I keep trying to figure out who made it, but can’t find a credit.  Anyone know?

Anyways, it’s in honor of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day! (–which I do not have mixed feelings about!)  Here’s a little bit more about the events they’re co-sponsoring:
