Still fishy...

I finished the cards for my mom, but since she only needed nineteen, I printed a bunch more, so if anyone needs super cute valentines, let me know! You can contact me directly or purchase them on Etsy.

Specifically for her cards, my mom had me print a letter for each of her kids on the fish, so they could have fun finding the first letter of their name. Actually, she was going to hand write the letters with her amazing hand writing, but I offered to save her time and pull a quick screen before I cut them with the letters.

I have been busy work on on a logo for my high school and assisting with the auction they are holding in March which should be a lot of fun and should have some wonderful art there. I'll keep you updated, but if anyone wants to donate art for the auction or do a 4"x6" piece for the blind art sale (all pieces are the same flat price, but you don't know who made it until you have bought the piece), let me know. It could be some great exposure and a chance to side by side with some well known artists.

Love is in the Air. Something is Fishy.

Been working on valentine's day cards for my mom. At left are the contenders. I still need to work on what to say for the one on the far right, or how to make it more valentinesy. I was thinking perhaps a heart on a hook coming down, but then it kind of looks like the "teacher" fish is leading her "students" to danger.

I don't think the simple fish at the bottom are really in the running, because it has been suggested that they are a little too reminiscent of conception. Not the message we want to give first graders.

Oh, and I definitely want something better to say on the heart shaped fishies!

Any ideas are welcome.

Discard 2009: January 1-14

I am trying to figure out the best way to post Discard 2009, the project I mentioned before, in which I get rid of one item a day and document it. When I was doing a page a day, it became quite a hassle to upload and place them in the page. I suppose the best would be to put an update when there are more images as well as having a link at right.

Oh, yeah, and P.S. I decided that that old font was too small and from now on we'll be using normal here...

In the Studio: Cleaning

Here's a little peak of what I have been working on in the studio. I have been obsessed with decluttering lately, but there is also so much more behind these cleaners I am working on.

(B)Ringing in the New Year

This new year brings up a new resolution for me that comes with a new project. This project will take dedication. I am going to declutter one (or more) objects a day and document them through art. Get rid of the stuff, keep the drawing (or whatever it may be).

First drawing today. Not off to the best start. But if nothing else, come this time next year, I will have 365 fewer things cluttering my life.

No image today. Have yet to decide whether I will display these images, and if so, where.
