Figure Skating Poster Fame

January 24, 2011

The News & Record, my local newspaper, was kind enough to feature me and my figure skating poster in today’s Sunday paper.

You can read the full article by clicking and zooming in on the last two photos. I’m so honored and pleased with Dawn Kane’s lovely story about me! In fact, It’s been a weekend full of incredible honor. Last night I was awarded my poster competition prize at a gorgeous little ceremony at Green Hill Center. I got a big check (literally, a big huge foam-core check), roses, copies of the poster, and some of the kindest words and sweetest congratulations from a room full of amazing people. I even got to sign autographs! I’m so thrilled by all the good things coming my way from my contest win, and so thankful to all the people making them happen!

Here’s a copy of the poster featuring my illustration, which will be sold at the Figure Skating Championships this week.

My Illustrated Pop-Up Book, Figuring You Out

January 22, 2011

As started way back in November, I’ve been working on illustrating the inner workings of people and what makes them tick. I posted an open-ended call for entries and received so many wonderful responses from acquaintances and friends. After much consideration, I narrowed down seven of my favorites to illustrate in pop-up form, and finally—after much labor of love—the book is complete!

Here’s a little sneak peak at a few of the pages:

figuring you out: introduction

figuring you out: page three

figuring you out: page eight

I’m offering the book for sale as part of a limited edition art zine. Also, as a long-overdue thanks to everyone who contributed, I’m sending a copy to each person who submitted an address with their response. If you’d like to get your hot little hands on a copy, you can pick one up here.

Also, the original book, filled with my hand-painted, cut and pasted illustrations, is going on tour with the Sketchbook Project beginning in March. It’s a touring “library” of sketchbooks organized by theme. Mine will be catalogued along with other books on the subject, “Figuring You Out,” and you’ll be able to check it out with your library card to flip through.
