Dear reader, I feel that I owe you an explanation. This blog has been neglected... for that I am sorry. The flood in August 2016 hit my home and studio right after I completed my MFA and most of my work was lost. It has taken about a year to get back on track, and rebuild the studio. Now it's up an running and I will post process images/explanations more frequently! Here's some things I've been working on.
This is Blackberry Kitty. The story behind this illustration comes from my childhood. When I was young, I used to go on foraging expeditions in the woods near my house. At the time I had a litter of kittens that would follow me around like the pied piper. They'd all come with me, catching worms and guarding me against monsters along the way. This drawing was entered into an international call to artists based out of India, for a portfolio exchange put together by the International Print Exchange Program. This year's theme is "Homeland". My drawing was selected for participation, so now I get to work on turning it into a print!
