dress up with mr. chase

My last post consisted of scribbles from my lazy days last week (aka days I dont get out of my bathrobe to work from home) and Im (half)sorry to say, that this post doesnt come from such a different place.  Between catching a little winter flu and wrapping up a few different projects, I havent found myself with much extra creative energy.  So, I thought it an opportune time to share a few photos made the other week by my good friend, Richard Chase.  Richard has an affinity for photographing interesting people, and with my collection of vintage and penchant for costume(plus the fact that I dont mind face paint), I have become one of his people.  Every so often I cram half the contents of my closet in a duffle bag and head over to Richard's studio for an afternoon of dress up and conversation, and I always leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and re-energized.  I suppose its my sort of photo therapy?  And, lucky me, beyond the exercise of being photographed, I am left with Richard's beautiful images(and fond memories of this fantastic yellow couch).

new pattern: extra credit

A few snippets of new patterns I've been working on for a very exciting 2011 project, which I've momentarily dubbed my "extra credit."  Will share more soon :)

happy customer

I was happy to find this in my inbox the other day (design layout and all).  I've been dabbling in pet portraiture and was commissioned to do a few over the holidays.  Meet Bailey and Baxter.  They will hang side by side in the family's living room :)

in with the new

Happy  2 0 1 1  blog world!  
I have to say, 2010 was not my favorite year, but I am stupendously thankful for(and humbled by) the welcome I've received from this online community.  Your insights, inspirations and encouragements are truly invaluable, and I appreciate your feedback more than I can tell you.  An avid sketchbook user since I could hold a crayon, my sketches have always been a big part of my sense of self, but typically were not things I shared (especially on such a grand scale!).  So thank you new blog friends(and some old), for being a part of this space where I am free to be me.  I look forward to sharing my 2011 scribbles and schemes with you (as well as some super exciting new projects!).
I have a feeling this is going to be a good year :)
