I’m counting down to the end of 2013. I realize I haven’t posted much on this blog during the year, so I’ll try and recap a lot of work. I have spent many late nights working on a variety of my own work, sketching, scanning, adding color, retouching, etc. All of this fell in between bottle feedings and hopefully 6 hours of sleep each night.
This is a piece I worked on around the beginning of October. The government had been shut down and the news seemed rather dire every day. Negativity was flying from both sides. I just felt like we all needed to hug it out and make everything a little better.
I did it again. I fell behind on my posts and suddenly I’m playing catch-up months later. Well, I have been really busy. I went back to sketching constantly and building upon those ideas for some final illustrations. And in my phone I carry a list of ideas, projects, thoughts, etc. All of these are keeping me up at night and I am really trying to focus on what to work on first. Well, for now, here is a sample of some recent work…
Spring is here and I’m feeling the allergies this week. Just checked the pollen level… it was a 10.2 out of 12. Which explains the worn-out, scratchy-eye, sneezing feeling I’m having the last week. The good news for that is I can stay in and work on a bunch of new ideas. This was the first of about 6 illustrations I’ve been working on. I had 2 different versions of this. Melting ice cream rainbow: one with a curve and the other straight down. Here it is up to vote over at Threadless: http://threadless.com/submission/416633/6_Flavors_of_Fun
These are the 2 versions I worked up during the process:
I’ve been busy. Way to busy at work and after work. I have a “to do” list that keeps on growing. One of the things on my list was to submit a design to Threadless. They recently had a backpack design challenge. I thought this may be the perfect spot to use the “RoboPup” illustration. You can check it out and vote here if you would like: RoboPup vs Homework.
AND I was inspired to revisit this illustration after adopting a rescue dog from the Humane Society last weekend. I found this cute little guy on Sunday and I get to bring him home tomorrow! So excited. His name is Rocco and he came from a home with over 100 dogs. Sad story, but he is in really good shape and will be loved by the 3 of us at home. If you are interested in donating to them or reading more on the other dogs, here’s a link to the story at the Humane Society of Minnesota.
