a little yodelayheehoo for you

mountain in blue

mountain in green

i've been drawing imaginary mountain ranges with polka dots & stripes and thought it would be fun to finally color one of them. i couldn't decide on a color scheme (frozen and wintery? or lush and green?) so here are both of them for you to enjoy!

inked up ideas

just a few concepts for a commissioned set of postcards.

part 2 >>sketchbook project 2011

float/leaves spread

hi hello birdies

sail away

a few of my favorite spreads from my art-house sketchbook! yes, it's finally done and soon to be on it's way to brooklyn. i really would love to see the tour, but if a spontaneous trip to one of the cities doesn't pan out, a trip to brooklyn must happen where all the sketchbooks will eventually reside. goodbye dear sketchbook!

woodland garden >> inspiration

these matching curtains & shams from urban outfitters make me swoon. the punchy colors and the simple yet playful line-work are a dream come true! if that wasn't enough woodland garden love there is even a rug to go with this set. talk about a lovely dose of inspiration.

part 1 >>sketchbook project 2011

sketchbook project>> fly/feather spread

sketchbook project>> up/cloud spread

sketchbook project>> bird spread

here are the first few pages of my arthouse co-op sketchbook project. each sketchbook has a theme, it can be taken literally or just inspired by... you can fill it with whatever your heart desires. the theme i choose was "in flight".
i've come to realize my sketchbooks/loose scraps of paper i draw on are quite repetitive, i end up drawing the same thing over and over changing only small details. so it's fitting that i dedicated a page to just one word repeated in different ways.
the deadline is looming and i still have a handful pages to fill up, but i'll be sure to share more!

inspiration >> paint palette pillows

how lovely are these watercolor paint palette pillows from cb2? i was flipping through their most recent catalogue yesterday and my heart stopped, i am head over heals in love. they remind me of the little pieces of scrap paper where i test what color i mixed or how thick the watercolor pigment is. i just might have to own one.... or both... of these.
