Illustration Contest

Here’s something I am really excited about. I recently entered a fabulous contest hosted by Lilla Rogers Studio, an illustration agency representing artists internationally since 1984. The once-in-a-lifetime prize includes two years of representation! The entries will be narrowed down to 50 on August 1st, at which time those 50 will then be given the second assignment in the contest. You will definitely be alerted if I make the first cut! Below is my entry for the first assignment, which asked us to depict old-time playground equipment and the word "journal" any way we liked, as long as it was in our style. Let me know what you think!

Outdoor Art Fair

WOW! Summer is flying by! So much has happened since my last post. I participated in my first outdoor art fair over Father's Day weekend. We were under a big circus-like tent, with clear plastic curtains all around the sides on a nice humid midwestern summer day. Those things had to go! As you can see by the picture, I was trying to let some light in by gathering the black fabric curtains that were hung on the other side of the plastic. Thus the terrible lighting on the first two shots, but you get the idea. BTW much of what you see will be available online in my BigCartel shop when I get it up and running in August. Stay tuned!
