Only in October.

I discovered it felt right to make ghost emerge from tail pipes.

Blue tiles

I'm a life long lover of patterns.  Here's a kaleidoscope of blue tiles painted
with gouache.  I think it would be fun to fill a sketchbook with different tile studies.

Forest Animals

I'm all about bringing nature in.  Especially this time of year when I can see it all slowly disappearing.  I'm also into symmetry but, more of an imperfect kind.  There's so much pressure in the "perfect" & the end result is well what you expect= perfect.  Which if you ask me can be dry & leave little space for the imagination.

Little Red

She was joyously making her way along the wooded trail.
Little did so know trouble wasn't far behind.

Big tops, big dreams

I've been watching American Experience, The Circus on PBS.
It's a four hour history of the circus.
I've found it spectacular, exploitive, sad, ambitious, limiting & limitless.
(all sorts of contradictions)
My dad took use to take us to the circus in the fall so for me it conjures up 
good memories of a big afternoon out.  It's nice learn more about the long,
rich, history of the greatest show on Earth.

The morning glories are fading & the dandelions are gone.
A morning chill has set in.
(some of my favorites painted with gouache)

And... the rain continued.

We've had days & days of rain.
I'm imaging the outside while I stay cozy and dry inside.
The colors slowly change.

Character Art

Here are some sweet characters I made for a South Korean publisher.
The book is about the different activities we do everyday.

Halloween Card

This is a silly, sweet corn maze card I made for Papyrus.  A fun interactive way for toddlers to travel the maze & make some discoveries along the way.  Who knows, maybe they'll even get a few costume ideas.

Weather Report:

Crisp, and cool with a chance of butterflies.
I just love the bright blue skies this time of year.
(and of course the butterflies)

Gouache & some collage in my sketchbook.

Spelling with natures & a little paper.
