"Carabou and Birds" are kicking off the illustrated Zoo. What could be more fun than an apartment that houses a zoo?! I wish I still had the wire animal farm I made in college.

So I was google searching "Swedish Fish" because I've been expanding my Swedish Fish pattern designs, and this came up! Is this not the funniest ad ever? (At the bottom it says "A friend you can eat" it was made by JWT in New York. The whole series is just hilarious. It makes me want a bunny, and a waffle, and a Swedish Fish....

I went back to take down the NY Photo show last night, and got to wander through the exhibitions before they closed. These pieces were utterly striking in person. They're from the series Doppelgänger by Cornelia Hediger She is represented by the Klompching Gallery at 111 Front Street in DUMBO. Have a look at her work, it's beautifully executed, and has a great deal of dark wit. It's refreshing.

This is the start of something HUGE and AWESOME. I've been working on a new painting series that combines natural formations of cellular structures with more concrete portraits. These are some sketches starting the kick off of my "Girls in Glasses" painting series. The first painting is nearing it's "ready to show other people" stage, and the rest of the series seems to be following suit. I'm excited, you?

I spent Tuesday helping hang the NY Photo show down in the Old Tobacco Warehouse in DUMBO. The shows look fantastic! Above are some of the gems from our building among many beauties. It's worth a look. TOP: Matthew Porter BOTTOM: Kimiko Yoshida

Yes! They finally came in from the printer! These are 2 of the 3 packs of Illustrated Postcards I just put up on my etsy. Each card is different and they are professionally printed, 4"x6" and shiny on heavy heavy weight cardstock. They're perfect to hang up or send out! I'm sure they will make you smile!
The first 2 packs are posted on my etsy, a few more will be showing up throughout the week. Feel free to get in touch if you have a specific request, I may have what you're looking for.

I have been waiting for ages, and Wendy & Lucy came out on DVD on Tuesday! If you haven't seen it, you need to. It is heartbreakingly beautiful, and Michelle Williams is incredible in it.

Happy Saturday! Here are some more sketchbook pages, I've been working on. I have a few books about Cultural Mythology on hold at the library, so I'm itching to get back into illustrating myths and magic. More soon.
