Kentucky Kitten

A new submission for this week’s woot derby: Southeast States. 

I’m slowly making my way through the 50 States. Here is Kentucky, now to be known as Kitucky. Many thanks to all of you that have posted votes for those in the last few weeks!

The Blue Album

I love watching and re-watching episodes of Arrested Development. My favorite character is Tobias, especially during his blue period. So I had to create a weezer/AD mash-up for this week’s Derby. Up for vote this week! http://shirt.woot.com/derby/entry/84935/the-nevernudes

Hothy Holidays 2013 – Wampa

Another illustration that I have revised. And this one for 2013 Christmas Cards. The wampa was always one of my favorite toys as a kid. I only wished his arm would have popped off.

The Melting Rainbow

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:

My Summer Trip

Updating my blog with photos from my trip to Iceland, Germany, Czech Republic and Denmark. These lego versions of my friend Nate and I made it through the 2 week trip. Just found them in my pocket the other day and reminded me I should repost these photos.

“TAXI!” Leaving Minneapolis
Arriving at JFK. I lost my hat on the plane:(

 

In Flight. Ready to land in Iceland. We so excited.
Walking to the bars at midnight. It’s still bright out.

 

Viking beer? Gotta have one.
This is what a 3AM walk home from a Reykjavik pub looks like.

 

Outside one of the fabulous city pools.

 

Outside the Hallgrímskirkja church of Reyjavik
Relaxing near a thermal pool.
Journey up to the Perlan Museum viewing deck.
ATV tour of the volcano fields

 

Where did Nate go? I did get lost on the trip for a short time.
Climbing up lava rocks, looking for the perfect photo. It was really windy and steamy.

 

Ended the day with a trip to the Blue Lagoon. Perfect.

Sun and Moon – Duet

The theme for Illustration Friday this week is “duet”. I’m thinking the sun and moon are singing their rendition of “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off”. Wanted to share this before the week was over. It’s been really busy lately and I’m playing catch-up all week. More to come very soon.
