Sadie-Sadie the Pattern Lady

This is a recent illustration I did for my sister to give to her sister-in-law as a gift celebrating the birth of their new baby girl, Sadie.  It’s also a poem that’s taught in grade school, and children are asked to draw what they hear described to them from the poem.  So this is my interpretation.  I haven’t done anything this kid friendly since I drew the cute monsters for my daughter’s nursery.

12.19.2010 – Pt. III Snapshot 2 – GNOME full color

So, I think the color on the gnome is pretty well completed, as is the rest of his body. Gotta scan it, and the other pieces (still actually have a few pieces to make yet) and assemble in the Photoshop file for the glorious Pt. III!

India ink and brush, and watercolor. NO DIGITAL (…yes!)

In progress. Will be the piece from the series with the most work done in traditional media. Also will probably be the least dark.

09.04.10 Phoenix in Progress

This has been in progress for almost 2 years now. Anyone who knows me will not be surprised by this fact.  But it was a request from my wife, and I plan on finishing it for her soon. But here is an in progress look at the painting. I’m using watercolors and it can be rough at times. It’s not always a very forgiving medium, which is why as a general rule of thumb, it scares me.

Media: Watercolor on gesso covered stretched paper
