I am obsessed with the sea and all things nautical. Here’s another image I found this week that feeds that obsession.
My sister-in-law, Chelsea, is hosting an alternative gift fair later this month. It is to create a Christmas shopping party for her community with products that either directly or indirectly work in and fight against world-wide sex trafficking and human slavery. You can read more about what she is passionate for here. Anyway she asked me to create some cards to sell at the fair. I created 48 unique cards. Here are the results.
I made some valentines cards for friends and families. See the full set below:
Love these ads from the art of reuse blog. Read their blog here: blog.theartofreuse.ca. As far as I can tell it is a thrift store, a blog, a commnity and so much more.
Another winner from Fab.com. We all need something in the pocket department.
These wonderful book cover redesigns to classic books came from fab. I wish I could afford them all!
So I received a snowflake the other day from a 6 year old. You know, the paper cut out kind. It wasn’t the most beautifully crafted snowflake I’ve ever seen, but it did have an interesting shape.

There wasn’t some master plan behind it all, but I did achieve the look I was going for. What do you think? Have you ever doodled something and then it turned into something more? Is this art? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
I saw the movie Some like it hot starring Marilyn Monroe recently and really dug her oft-repeated phrase, the fuzzy end of the lollipop. Hence the drawings. After bringing the image into photoshop I accidentally inverted it and liked it so much I included that version as well.
Last month I entered the illustration contest “doodle something good in the world” from GOOD magazine. I’ve been a fan of their for a long time. If you’ve never heard of them, you seriously are missing out. Check them out at www.good.is.
Anyway, I didn’t really expect to win and I didn’t, but apparently they liked my work enough to post my work on their site along with 47 of their other favorites!
Here’s what I submitted:
You can see the other pieces along with the three winners here. I’m number 8 in the slideshow.
So, I’ve been struggling lately to find a project that I can commit to and be passionate about. I really enjoy packaging and copying things from real life, but I’m don’t just want to copy someone else’s idea. If you have any thoughts or ideas for me, please share. Meanwhile, some recent work:
