"My Trusted Tools" - New Items in the Society6 Shop!

With the advance of Spring, I've found myself craving some new bright designs! I've been working on a series I called "My Trusted Tools" celebrating my beloved crayons and pens who never fail to convey my enthusiasm to the page. It only takes one stroke to start something! So, here it is for the tools that give us that stroke (of genius?)!

Family Portrait

I got lucky to recently be commissioned for a portrait for an amazing family! It was so nice to be a part of a special moment for them, and be able to capture the joy and love of this family! 

We carefully chose the background to evoke a special place in their heart and anchor the drawing in their personal history. I love the flowing dress, the holding of hands, and joy of their beautiful little girl! 

I am always very humbled and excited that people trust me with capturing a beautiful moment of their lives, and I had such a great time drawing this one! 

And here is final art in frame! 

In The Air - Tee Shirt/Hoodie Silkscreen Design

I've been wanting to make a silkscreen hoodie for the longest time! First off, I love hoodies! Second, I own a few that are silkscreened and I really enjoy the textures you can get and the feel of the print; the overall look has a uniqueness to it that I'd like to work with.

I have worked with silkscreen before, but it was pretty basic. I'd like to experiment with textures and transparencies, see what is possible with the medium. So, I am doing my research right now, and I'd like to find a shop to talk to the experts, and see what options are out there. I know there are a few very good ones in the city, I will definitely give it a go soon! In the meantime, I've been putting together what could be my first design. 

Here is the "In the Air" illustration for a silkscreen hoodie! What do you think?
