Happy Halloween

Hello everyone:
It's raining today. . . will the orange and black celebration get runny and muddled into a swirl of murky brown? I think not! I got intensely crafty this Halloween. I will spare you most of my "witchiness."

And will however, share my leaf ghosts


and my magazine spiders

Happy Halloween to all!

A bientot.

My Sketch Book

Some time ago, I blogged about Danny Gregory's extraordinary An Illustrated Life. I was inspired to have a more designed sketch book. Here are some recent excerpts from my sketch book:

As an artist, it seems impossible to be satisfied with what you do. But for once, I am pleased with the organic page design I created. I didn't really think about what I was doing while I made these sketches- which I think can be my biggest hurdle. I tend to over analyze to the point where I am creatively paralyzed! Phew! Now, I shall confess no more.

I am eager to incorporate this into my own work and develop art books/picture books in this method. Now, does anyone have any ideas how I should apply this style? Leave a comment!

A bientot!
