pleasant surprise

This morning I got a pleasant surprise in my reading list! Big thanks to Flyer Design Goodness for the lovely words and sharing my posters under 'reader of the week'. They cover some pretty amazing artists...I have found much inspiration there. ♥

p.s. See you tomorrow at Lilac Fair (previous post), and have a lovely weekend!

Star Gazing

This is going to be such a positive event with an amazing line up of some of the most talented lady performers in Spokane...

I got the Illustration Friday topic on the day I started working on  my Lilac Fair poster. For the artwork, we had already established that there was to be a girl on it, very feminine. One thing I love about doing posters is that people pretty much let me do what I want - especially Chrisy from the Empyrean. The theme "star gazing" seemed most appropriate...and I do LOVE combining projects. Hence my new most favorite poster was born!

I have a crazy to do list at this point, but it isn't stopping me from having an art/craft table at Lilac Fest. So make sure to stop by! $5 at the door benefiting the Venessa Behan Crisis Nursery.

Make sure and check out the line up.....Pasties and Paddles and Kim Wescott....eeeee! ♥

Can't wait to see you!

p.s. go peer at all the other beautiful illustrations this week over at Illustration Friday. It's so fun to see how different people interpret the same theme.

Undying love.

I've decided it's time to profess my undying love and affection to Patty and Tim, owners of Neato Burrito and The Baby Bar. Not only do they run a Mom and Pop Shop smack dab in the middle of downtown, but they support local artists and musicians all while raising a house full of the coolest kids out there! AND Patty surprised me a personalized "gift card board", AND they let me paint a giant mural on their wall! ♥ ♥ ♥

So for no other reason that to support some hard working over to Neato Burrito - then try the brisket with peanut sauce, corn salsa and cabbage ....I know this sounds weird but it is seriously amazing! (p.s. they also have tofu) ♥Have a most lovely Friday!

Train Love

I have such a crush on the Train. ♥ ♥ ♥Recently I took the train three hours to my hometown; my first Amtrak ride as an adult. We started out several hours late and then on the way out of town had to reverse all the way back to the station. Someone had forgotten to get off....I was simply ecstatic! My 2am trip through the darkness became a glorious ride through the countryside at sunrise.

The last couple weeks have gone by sooo fast! - train rides, babysitting turkeys, camping, parties...not to mention I have a very exciting illustration project I am working on. Although, I am not sure if I am supposed to mention it yet or not. Eeeee! So - looks like you will have to sit tight and imagine wonders to come! And I wish you many wonders. ♥
