A simple moment in my imagination illustrated. If only we still dressed like this to go see a show…!
Take a look at these three images to watch how I added detail.
Sometimes the simplest things can take the longest to perfect. I nearly spent an hour and a half on her right hand alone to find the perfect position resting on her left arm.
Would’ve been nice if her feet were peeking out a bit on the bottom left, what do you think?

It’s official! I’m addicted to Vine. It can be overwhelming when new social media outlets pop up because let’s face it, we’ve got enough to keep up with as it is! However, this one’s got me thinking in a whole new way… and as a creative, I can’t help but love that feeling. Join me on Vine, and watch as I share 6 second looping video clips of my world.
What do you think of the app?
My 2013 calendars are now on sale! Last chance to get one as they will no longer be available beginning February 1st.
Having been to a lot of museums as of late, it got me thinking about handwriting…
In most of the exhibits I visited, there were displays of handwritten notes to and from the artist to friends or other well known figures. The letters were more often than not written in a fine black ink… in a calligraphic or cursive style. They were gorgeous documentations of a fleeting art. What will our ancestors have to remember our correspondence with one another? Printed emails?
Ever since I received my Parker Pen, I’ve been sketching and writing away in my sketchbook (I love how water reacts to the inks). There’s something so glamorous about an organic handwriting… it creates a certain romance on paper no matter what the words may be.
A beautiful pen can be inspiring in itself, don’t you think?
What about you, do you still handwrite letters? Who doesn’t like getting a beautiful piece of mail!?
Happy National Handwriting Day!
