Plenty of Paper

Eisley is my favorite band and has been for at least five years, so it's about time I do an illustration based on their lovely and whimsical lyrics. This piece is titled, "Plenty of Paper" from their album, "Room Noises". It's their first LP and it's fabulous. Their third album is dropping in March--- it was streaming for free online this week, and I must say it. is. going. to. be. awesome. Go Eisley!

I'm thinking there will be more of these to come, whether they are based off Eisley songs or not. I'm thinking a series of three. If anyone has ideas for the next song I should illustrate, let me know!

The Martha Walker Native Habitat Garden

Hello friends,

Just finished a lovely project for the California Native Plant Society. I had to draw illustrations of flowers and small animals, many of which you have seen on this blog. I've always loved the Martha Walker Garden, so I'm happy to have been a part of its beautification. You can read about this sweet native habitat garden here. And when the signs are finished in a couple months, feel free to walk the garden after you attend one of CNPS's native plant sales. I used to go to those all the time with my Dad, and I have such great memories of them.

So here's the map you'll see at the entrances of the garden:

New Style, yo!

Friends, family, lovely newcomers--- I introduce to you--- my new style. I've been trying to find a finished product that I enjoy doing, and is interesting, different, fun, and easy to stay consistent with. I've been doing so much pen and ink that I wanted to incorporate that, and here's what I came up with. I'll still be doing many other techniques, but this one will be my "brand". So next stop is my website, where I'll be updating and changing the look of it to match my brand. Love to all of you!
