Do Re Me

A little piece of fanart I've been wanting to do for a while now. The Do Re Me scene from The Sound of Music film always stuck out to me as something perfect for a little golden book, reminiscent of Mary Blair's or Retta Scott's work.

Breaking the Fourth Canvas

Here's my piece for the Red Dot Charity Auction from back in May. It was hard to pick a subject! Chuck Jones' shorts were always my favorite Looney Tunes cartoons as a kid. For only showing up in a few shorts, Pussyfoot was one of those favorites. It's a mixed media painting and a whole lot of experimenting to get the look I was going for. I'm happy to say that she sold to some very nice people and I was happy that someone wanted to take her home!

Red Dot Auction 2015

Like art? Like people learning about art? Like Chuck Jones starting a center so people can learn about art? Show your support this Friday by attending the Red Dot Auction at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity in Costa Mesa, CA!

I have a piece in the auction and will be there for both the preview night and the auction night, itself. Red Dot tradition dictates that all the paintings' artists be kept a mystery until after pieces are bought. If you want to find out what I created, you'll just have to go! or wait until the auction is over and i post about it

Tickets are $25 and you can find out more info here:

Haunted Mansion Bride Disneybound

A quick illustration of what I wore to Dapper Day at Disneyland this spring. The look is inspired by a previous version of the Bride from the Haunted Mansion, popularly known among fans as Emily.

We're Going to Be Friends

A little development piece for two characters from another of my story ideas, When in Chroma. The world they live in is influenced by various art movements from 20th century America. To best portray Cecily and Felix's childhood, I figured the dry brush, storybook style often influenced by Mary Blair's work in the 50's and 60's fit the best.
