Earlier this year my wonderful cousin Sallie moved from San Francisco to Denver, CO. Shortly after, her cat Santi passed away. He wasn't the easiest cat to get along with, but she loved him fiercely and feels his absence keenly. As a special tribute I made a watercolor painting for her of Santi as a Christmas gift. I don't actually have a picture of the finished product, but here's one of an initial sketch:
I painted the final version at a makeshift studio I set up on my parents' pool table. I'm including a photo of that just because it was such an amazing experience to have all that ROOM to spread out in! Usually I'm working in my room at my art desk. Having three times as much space is paradise!!
Happy New Year, all!

Oh my crap my little brother's gonna be a father! There, I said it, it's out there. I'm fully stoked. I made this card for them to celebrate, and to wish them a non-ravenous-tiger Christmas.
There's more stuff to come - I've been working on presents for a few people, so those need to get unwrapped before I post 'em here.
Happy holidays, all!

Hey all - I've been working on a few things, but I can't post 'em quite yet as they may ruin some holiday surprises. Look for a few posts toward the end of the month. In the meantime, enjoy this find I recently made, artist Don Kenn who has a blog of art drawn on post-its!
