I decided that I need an illustration portfolio. I think it's what I really want to pursue. "think" being the operative word. over the past year and a half i've dabbled in everything from illustration to jewelry to pottery to print making. I think it was a good experiment and now I really feel that illustration is where I want to focus my energy. it feels a bit like a weight off my shoulders.. to at least know what path I want to take instead of having so many optional paths on the table. (of course this doesn't mean that I will quit all the other forms of art I enjoy all together. that would be silly!)

my new portfolio is still being compiled, but i think it will be ready to share soon! For now, just the homepage and some new things I've finished. Finn the Duck Tolling Retriever, Sonny the Golden Retriever, and "The Night Circus" tent as I imagine it.. before they make a movie out of that book. Have you read it? I liked it a lot.

p.s. just rediscovered Norah Jones' album, "The Fall."  It is SO good. AHH. So glad I'm listening to it again.

  3. You are undeniably talented. :) I've enjoyed the art samples on here the last few weeks ... always wished I could draw well, but am resigned to the fact that I cannot. I just get to appreciate other peoples genius. :D

  5. Sarah! I'm so glad you've found something you want to focus your energies on! You are a great illustrator. That deer is still the bomb-diggity.

    I hope you're doing well! I'm still alive (on spring break so it's like woo-hoo!). Excited to catch up with you've been doing lately! :)
