Busy Bunny

Monday, February 25, 2008

I am busy with multiple books, covers, paintings, and work! I am still alive!

On the personal front, I just had a birthday in the midst of it all. For an end-of-the-week fiesta, my roomate and I are setting out to make this very famous (at Curious George bookstore at least) bunny into a birthday cake.

The book "Marshmallow", published by Harper Collins, is a classic re-release of an old Caldecott honor book, first published in 1942. If any of you are unfamiliar with Clare Turlay Newberry's illustrations, take a moment to find her images and hunt her books down (though most are out of print). The moment you open "Marshmallow" you will know why I immediately set my heart on making the protagonist into a cake! Her charcoal bunny gestures are flawless and downright yummy.

Onward with work and life, photos to come!

P.S. Does anyone know where I can buy pink dusty sugar to brush into the ears and nose?

Portfolio Makeover 2008

Sunday, February 3, 2008

It has been so busy and continues to be! One of the exciting things that is underway is my portfolio makeover (big thank you's to Shannon folks!) The entire thing has been updated, including art, bio, art order, and deleted old college work. I am missing 4-5 newest pieces, which will go up this week, but check it out if you are strolling through the web: Shannon Associates

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
