Food Truck Mural

I was asked to paint a mural on a food truck. I jumped at the opportunity to spend a weekend with my dog in the incredibly beautiful Sayward, painting. The trailer was painted with a coat of red oil based stain, so I designed it to be a simple, graphic, design that I could block […]

Skillshare class

Skillshare is awesome! I took a class on geometric animal illustration and drew my dog in Illustrator. I use Illustrator all the time, but it’s valuable to watch how another designer uses it, and pick up some tips and tricks to make working more efficient.

Part way through February – drawings

I’ve been keeping up with drawing daily, and here are some of them. Not all of them are worthy of sharing, but these ones are. The weather’s been outstanding on the west coast, we went down to Astoria for a long weekend mid month, and enjoyed a beer festival, good food and stunning sunshine. The […]

The wolf linocut

Two weeks ago a wolf wandered out of the woods and grabbed my grandparent’s dog. My step dad had a heart attack chasing it; he’s at home recovering now, they never found the wolf or the dog (presumed dead). I made a linocut of the event and consecutive events for my comics class, and partially […]

The portfolio selections have been pared down from previous years as […]

2015 – The year of daily drawings

This year I’m committed to putting pen (or pencil) to paper and doing a drawing a day. So far I’ve used traditional media only, but I’m not ruling out digital drawings as a possibility for the future. They’re all simple sketches and for the most part only take 15-20 minutes, but the point is to […]

Drawing week 52 – HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This week, over Christmas, we were at my mom’s place, in Sayward, BC. I drew some of the things that were in front of me; my reading boyfriend, my nieces, nephew, grandma and sister playing Uno, the cat. By and large, nothing kept still, and they were highly disrupted drawing sessions. But still. I’m happy […]

Drawing Week 51 – Superhero buttons for my nieces and nephews

Week 51 I was in Chrismtas present mode. I try and restrict my gift giving to handmade by myself or at the least, locally made. This week I drew my nieces and nephews as superheros (or regular people with super powers) and then made buttons at the regional assembly of text for them. They were […]

Drawing Week 50 – architectural drawings
