an autumn fog

Today is the first day of Fall! I love sweater weather...but it came so quickly.

It was a bit chilly this morning, but that didn't stop me from sneaking out half dressed to take photos before breakfast.
I wish you a most splendid Autumn. ♥

coffee and a paper

My life has been really crazy lately...I think this has been so for a lot of people. Although, the crazy hasn't been able to stop all the little wonderful things from slipping out through the cracks!
First - The Inlander came out on Thursday with 6 of my full page illustrations in it. I had so much fun drawing magical forest creatures (as they have coined them).
Next - I am super excited for the new coffee and pastries that will be served at Neato in their new morning coffee shop "Morning After". Not only do I plan on riding my bike to work this winter, I also plan on warming up as a "regular" (sorry about all the quotes here) drinking tasty espresso with handmade sauces. I am going to be tempted by pastries and it may end up neutralizing my morning exercise if I am not careful!

 ...I even got to paint some steamy little coffee cups for them! ♥

The last of my poppies.

This year we grew these papery wonders from seeds...they did very well. So so so many poppies! Aren't they lovely? ♥

One World

Yay, I finally got to see the One World Spokane T-shirts printed. I love bartering for work! Blue Button did an amazing job on them: chocolate brown organic cotton tees with white ink.

[sorry I didn't have my camera on me to snap a real photo]

For those that don't know....
One World Spokane is a non profit Organic Community Kitchen serving local food, where you choose your portions, and can even volunteer in exchange for a meal. (also 12 blocks from our new house...heh!)

I am more of a dessert lover than I should be. It was very hard for me to narrow down which type I was going to draw for the Illustration Friday theme this week. Turns out it was simple....the "Rainbow Cake" always ends up standing out - it's aloofness - it's elegance! I WILL make this cake, one (most perfect) day. But for now.....

Also, here is a cute little repeating fork pattern that you can play with (for personal use)...just click it to enlarge.

Happy drawing everybody. I can't wait to ooogle some dessert illustrations this week!
