When I got a request asking for fruit artwork by noon tomorrow. My response was let me see what I can pull together. When in fact, I didn’t have any fruit artwork, but I do now.

Here are a few of the designs I was able to whip up in one night. Of course, if I had more time I would of been able to do more, featuring a larger varieties of fruit but all in all I’m pretty happy with what I was able to do while burning the midnight oil. Hopefully my client is just as happy with my results.

Hurry up and draw some strawberries!! Who doesn't love strawberries?!

...And watermelon. I love watermelon

Design featuring some cherries I had initially drawn for my Cowgirl Tales Collection. I was glad I had at least something I didn't have to completely create from scratch.

While I was in Denver attending the HOW Conference I had the opportunity to do some urban exploring and I couldn’t pass up the chance to stop at the iconic Rockmount Ranchwear, “THE” Western shirt store that created the pearl button snap shirt. I just  had to leave with their book. After arriving home and unpacking all of my goodies I prominently placed the book on my coffee table where I couldn’t resist flipping thru it on a daily basis. I just love all the embroidery details, gem stones and the seemingly unrelated icons that are made to feel western thru embroidery techniques and juxtapositions.

One Saturday as I flipped thru the book I was inspired to break out my pencils and sketchbook. I turned my Pandora station to Johnny Cash & Hank Williams Jr. with a bit of Carrie Underwood & Taylor Swift thrown in and started to get into my drawing grove. From that inspiration came my new Western Inspired Collection that I call Cowgirl Tales.

Here is a little preview and you can see the full collection on my website.

On the last day of the Surtex Show Artist Tara Reed came by with her camera in hand and persuading me to do a video for her art licensing stories series. It was  great to finally meet Tara in person, after knowing her for a few years in the online virtual community, and I was happy to do it. Tara’s an awesome lady who’s positive energy is truly refreshing and completely contagious!!  I love her eternal optimism. I truly believe that you need to put positive energy out into the world if you would like to receive it.

My first video debut! I think I might have a new calling in broadcasting ;-)
