Current work: ad design

I designed a flyer for an upcoming performance by this musician. Just interesting to also see what I made it out of: I made use of two photos (below). I decided the first one was the most attractive...
And this second one showed just a great face/smile & showed her with her instrument (important), but obviously it didn't need that background...
Here is the ticket design as well:
(Come on out and have some "downtime" with Melissa Eason. Buy tix here, and/or see & hear Melissa here.)

Serendipity Stencil

The Squirrel and I set out to make a stencil. I grabbed a file folder because of its thickness. She drew a cat on it and I cut it out.
The file folder worked out great for a stencil because of the way you can set the paper inside it-- the bottom edge helps with aligning and keeping it in one place.
And when we decided to do a second color (the cat's stripes), I could easily trace the shape onto the back of the folder when closed, then open it up and cut out the stripes...
...and if she aligned with the folder's bottom edge when painting the second color, it turned out pretty good.
Cute, huh?


Feet Painting

Using the fingerpaint we made, I set up a sheet in the yard (next to the kid pool to wash off!) for feet painting...
well soon the brushes proved to be still more fun...
but this was an adventure on a very nice day...

Current Work: Hope Ills

posting something I'm currently working on (more stories by Elisabeth Hurley). The first sketch of this particular illustration:
The final line:
The final colored illustration. I use scanned textures and photo textures.
It was interesting to have to research and draw specific various ethnicities.
And here is the title illustration for this particular story, about cleaning up their neighborhood.
