Cat on a Fence
Another painting based on a photo found on (where else!) Pinterest. As always, I would prefer to give credit, buuut everything is Pinterest everywhere, recursive loop etc.

Christmas Card 2016
By now mostly everyone should have gotten their card so it's okay to post it here! I was never happy with last year's badger so this was an opportunity to take another crack at one; definitely an improvement, though it's weird that he's the only animal wearing person clothes, right? Also I guess my mother was frightened by a kitchen wallpaper border while pregnant, because those geese have red bows around their necks. Kitschy! But not ironically! It really seemed like a good idea at the time. The top version - the yellower-greenier one - was my initial pass, but my co-sender requested that some elements be shifted cooler, so that's the bottom take and the one we sent. In conclusion, HORSES ARE GREAT. Happy holidays!

I made this a while back as a gift for my sister and brother-in-law on the occasion of me having a nephew now, and it's since been very useful as a card for other new babbies in the surrounding a. I did not check whether owls exhibit sexual dimorphism, but if so, I am so glad for these two dad owls! Way to go, guys!

Neighborhood Barbecue
This is the bulk of an art installation I completed this spring. In real life it's a diorama set up in an abandoned phone box, about 27" tall x 12" wide x 7" deep. There's some other art assets but they don't fit neatly into this drop-shadowed digitally layered version - namely a banner that fits different dimensions to replace the phone company's name. Also, if you were to stand in front of the physical piece you could peek in between the layers to see more art! Well, baby's gotta learn to take photos some day, but unfortunately I haven't yet. 

Watercolor & digital (the diorama is printed on heavy archival paper and mounted on foamcore, then sealed behind plexiglass; also if you ever want to feel like a boss and a half I recommend drilling through stainless steel just like WHIRR WHIRR NOW THERE'S A HOLE). 
Princess Ben
Lately I've been having trouble feeling like any of my personal work is worth finishing; I felt similarly about this, but it was kind of an Eat My Vegetables exercise anyway, so I did (lighting a character slightly more than perfunctorily, drawing from a point of view other than straight-on; but girl you KNOW I'm painting that placid smile, I'm still ME). It was originally a straightforward purple-yellow color comp but at the last second I threw a bunch of a blue-green-grey at it because see note above re: me. 

This painting is based on a fun, unpretentious fairy tale retelling I enjoyed recently - Princess Ben. At this point in the story she's described as having a figure like an apple (later she's still thick, but after two months as a prisoner of war and then, crucially, everyone butting THE HECK OUT of what she eats and trying to control her figure with absurd diets, she finds her natural weight. Health at every size yo!!). I wish I had made her rounder here. Next time I'll be less shy.
