four fungi

18 Feb

mush_0002_Layer 2As you know from my last post, I have been having fun with some relief printmaking! It has been great to make a small body of work in such a short time… I really am proud of my little collection of fungi stamps. Some friends on instagram encouraged me to print these beauties onto some journals, so I did just that. All four are now available in my etsy shop! mushsetnubers

sprouting new ideas

16 Feb

New ideas have been sprouting out of my brain like crazy… my sketchbook pages especially have been sprouting some new things. I’m super happy to have my creative groove back, and a new body of work that has been on the forefront these days is a series all about mushrooms. I AM IN LOVE! The shapes, the texture, the colors… they are adorable and absolutely fascinating. I’ve been playing with line drawing and relief printmaking so far, and truly have enjoyed just making and experimenting. I might want to try my hand at painting or sculpting a few of these cuties too, but I’ll make sure to keep it simple if I do. Who knows where this new series will take me!? Thought I’d share some photographs of the process, exploration and results thus far. Enjoy! mush1 mush2 mush3 mush4 mush5 mush7 mush8 mush9

spring sketchbook snaps

6 May

Last week consisted of a lot of spring cleaning, but it also yielded tons of much needed creativity. Because of this, my sketchbooks saw a lot of love. I’ve been trying to just doodle and sketch more, as I tend to over work a lot of drawings due to my obsession with detail and texture. Simplifying my illustrations has been fun.Screen Shot 2013-05-06 at 12.11.43 PM Although of course, I can’t stay away from meticulously drawing animals, and so a few more excessive renderings have started to emerge. Screen Shot 2013-05-06 at 12.12.36 PMSome new pieces in my ongoing collaborative sketchbooks with Anika Starmer, Patterns & Paws, have started to come together. Stoked to finally have a bit of time to devote to these beauties so I can mail them back to Maryland soon. Screen Shot 2013-05-06 at 12.12.02 PMWhat have you been drawing in your sketchbook?
