Birdie from Elaine
Here is by birdie I received from Elaine the other day. Isn't is beautiful? I love the crackle she gives to her work. You can see more of her work here.

And this is what i made for her. It's a little mixed media piece. For some reason I am really into making small things for people. I guess things just look cuter to me in miniature.

I've decided to hold off on the swapping for right now (I'm booked until September) and might start it back up with doing 2 or 3 a month rather than a week like I'm doing now.

The above is my interpretation of Illustration Friday's theme: empty (click the image for a larger view). I got my inspiration from Roz's impending move and remembered how when you move to a new place as a kid, although your house is all empty, you feel empty inside as well. You never believe you will find new friends, but you always do.

Birdie from Dee
Here is the birdie I got from Dee. The birdie is saying "Create" in Portugese and on the back she has written two quotes. They are: "A bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song" - Maya Angelou and "Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings." - C. Archie Danielson. I love it, and it's in the square format I like so much. Thanks Dee!!

This is what I made for her new "winged-theme" studio. It's a "Birdie Bouncer." Similar to the "Bunny Bouncer" I made for Becky. I'll be selling these in my store which is almost ready.

Birdie from Courtney
This is what I receive from Courtney for my biride swap. The colors are so vibrant. Now I need to find a frame that doesn't detract from it.

Here is the little bee painting I made for her which she hung in her daughter's room.

Thanks Courtney!!

on newstands...again

The above magazine is on newstands again and it features 4 of my illustrations. This magazine actually came out last summer but I guess they decided to distribute them again. I did these illustrations while I was 9 months pregnant and I was so scared I'd go into labor and miss the deadline. Luckily I finished them in time.

Thanks for everyone who's emailed me telling me they saw the magazine. It's nice to be recognized.

I've also updated my portfolio with some new work if you wanted to take a peek.
