Oooh, fancy new portfolio site!

I've been working on a new portfolio site to give my art a home, because I draw more than just cards you know. Maybe you didn't know that actually. Well, it's true. I draw A LOT and make a lot of art that is used for all kinds of things. I license that art to manufacturers for use on products. I sell it outright to companies. I put that art up for sale on websites like Spoonflower where you can purchase fabric, wallpaper and wrapping paper. It's so much fun! So here she is. A brand new home for all of my lovely illustrations. Have a look! If you're interested in licensing any of my art, let's have a chat and make that happen!

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 8

Feeling pretty good about getting this one out on schedule. I'm currently in sunny Los Angeles at Papercamp learning all about stationery boss lady stuff. I'll be back in the studio on Monday to tell you all about it. For now, let's take a look at week 8 of my 52 week art challenge. For my last house, I decided to make a portrait of literally my last house. This is our first home together as a married couple back in Michigan. We are in the process of selling it, it will only be ours for another week or so. Onto new adventures, including March's theme: Birds! 

I created this one in Photoshop, using Kyle T. Webster's texture brushes

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 4

Wrapping up our month of house plants for week 4 of my 52 week art challenge. I ended up making two pieces this week, just for fun. Terrariums are my new favorite things to draw. I looooove them!

I used the same process to create this piece as the first three weeks. First with a sketch on paper, then I inked the design with a Micron pen. After that I digitally painted the design with the Procreate app on my iPad.  

Hop over to Instagram and use the hashtag #spankysartparty to see what everyone has been working on. We have so many people participating now! And it's not too late to join us. Jump in at any point, it's okay! Just do what you can. You can always go back and catch up later if you want to. Make sure to tag all of your work with our hashtag #spankysartparty so we can all find it.

Our theme next month is: HOUSES. I'm excited!
