Big Bold Dreams

My friend Karli comes up a lot on my blog. She's an awe inspiring lady...a designer, an artist, a musician. Now her and her husband are in the process of raising funds to open an all ages music venue here in Spokane this Spring. The Bartlett! I'm so very excited for them. Click the link below to find out more about the Bartlett, and see how you can support, and or spread the word. Spokane is lucky to have such a talented passionate lady with big bold dreams. Go Karli! ♥

A richly colored Autumn

Pearl, our odd little mixed chicken (Silkie and Serama), laid her first egg. The whole gang had stopped producing for the winter - until this week when it warmed up. It was a sign I need to dust off my camera and show you all how beautiful Autumn is around our home. Happy Fall everyone!

The End

A poster I did for the Inlander. What's super cool about this you wonder? ...I also get to do illustrations for the winning stories in the Dec. 20th issue. Yay. Get writing Spokanites! ♥

In the last couple weeks I've started two new and exciting projects...A print shop, and a 365 day illustrated journal.

The print shop is through Society6 and features many of my new illustrations. It can be found here.

The journal is called Daily Doodle Sketch. Each night I create a montage style illustration comprised of memories from my day. I've been going strong for over two weeks now. It's been a nice experiment. Here are some of my favorite bits (details) so far:

Put your face in it!

This years Spokane Visual Arts Tour was spectacular as always. I submitted a proposal to Terrain for an interactive photo mural...I didn't have a ton of time between getting excepted and the one night event. Jacinda built my 8' plywood frames for me - I cut some face holes and went to town. It was so wonderful - people stopped me all over at various galleries to show me their photos!

Here are a few smiles!!!...♥

 ♥ Thanks for everyone who put their face in 'em!

Identical (IF)

For the last month now I've been working like crazy on drawings (17 of them), to exhibit along side paintings at my art opening this Friday. I've not shown original illustrations before and am pretty thrilled about it. Working with mixed media has been a nice change - and a challenge. I decided to theme one after this weeks Illustration Friday topic: Identical. Hope you love it! ♥
Here's a little sneak peek (detail) of another. I will make sure to post more soon. Stop by aNeMonE this month and check out the show!

Rocking It!

There is a lot of stacking going on in the Kan...

I made and photographed some rock stacks for the Spokane Serial Stackers fan page last weekend. Aren't they lovely?

P.S. Love you magical anonymous table stackers. You do mighty fine work. ♥

Power and Light

Kyle Durrie is delightful.

I'd heard about her idea for Moveable Type back when the kickstarter campaign was in full swing. Her project not only got the $7,000 she was hoping for - to transform her ice cream style truck into an educational (mobile) letterpress studio - but it got funded at $17,000 with more than 350 people backing her. This is an amazing project and Spokane this past weekend was oh so lucky to be one of the many stops on her travel adventures.

Kyle - Thanks for the sticker! I hope Spokane was good to're doing great things. ♥

Go check this lady out!
