back to work

I am back to work 100% now after my small vacation. Been working on more fashion illos- but on color paper. Here is today's work, hope you like it!You can see the full piece at one of my shows this summer (dates to be posted soon!)



Also been so inspired by other artists lately. I don't do well making things by hand like this but look at the amazing lights Sarah Turner makes! AND from recycled drinking bottles. We heart you Sarah.
I also think these would look great next to eachother....

I love that illustration, love the loose style, the color usage, everything. I've found my tastes gravitate between strikingly simple and outlandish maximalism. What that says about me, I don't know. But keep up the good work!
