A Brief History of Pretty Much Everything

23 Aug

This flipbook is so much fun. It’s definitely worth the time (just 3:12) that it takes to watch. Be sure to turn your volume up. The music and sounds effects are well worth it.


Bouquet Toss

18 Jul

I recently did a wedding drawing (and a couple variations) for a good friend of mine. Rather than doing a standard wedding portrait, I wanted to capture one of the bride’s favorite moments. This is what I came up with.

The final color drawing I gave the bride was slightly different, but not by much. After I scanned this in, I began tinkering with the drawing a bit more and gave her the final originals in both black and white and color so she could choose which she preferred. I really love how it turned out, and, most importantly, she does too.

Turquoise Room

13 Jun

Ever since I saw this interior in the December 2010 issue of Lonny, I knew I wanted to draw it. I can’t get over that beautiful wall color.

Here’s my illustrated version in three parts:

New Etsy Shop

20 May

Since getting married, I’ve rebranded my illustration business and moved my etsy shop to a new location. I went from this:

to this:

I’ve added a number of prints that haven’t previously been available, including prints of the Eiffel Tower, Odd Man Out, and A Baker’s Kitchen, so please do stop by and take a look.

You can also see some samples of my work, including some custom pieces, on my Portfolio page.

A Colorful Welcome

5 Apr

I love coming upon a door in an unexpected color, shape, or combination of both. The burst of energy at an entrance is a lovely welcome.

A Few Fantastic Hats

23 Mar

English hats have been on my mind recently, pretty much ever since it was announced that Philip Treacy would be designing the hats and headpieces for the royal wedding party. I’ve been an admirer of his work ever since I saw him featured on Project Runway last season. He landed the royal gig because Camilla Parker Bowles is a fan—she wore one of his designs to her own wedding six years ago—and she recommended him to Kate Middleton. All three of the above hats were inspired by Treacy designs that Camilla has worn over the years

New Drawings at Forest Perk

14 Mar

As I mentioned here, four of my drawings are on display and available for purchase at Forest Perk Coffee on Clairmont Avenue in Birmingham. I replaced two of them with these drawings, which aren’t available yet in my shop—they will be soon.
