I have recently been playing around with adding more textured backgrounds to my illustrations. So I spent a day just creating some backgrounds the old fashion way. I used the covers of old books as the canvas and adding some paint and paper to create texture. It felt really good to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty. I need to take the time to do this more often.

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?!

I’m all packed up and ready to go!!!  For the last 6 months I’ve been intensely prepping for Surtex and I’m shipping everything off tomorrow!!  This will be my first time exhibiting. It’s been a lot of work and has taken some very long night and uninterrupted weekends to get everything together. But it feels great just to get this far that I am brewing with excitement waiting for the actual show to arrive.

Here is a look at some of my pre-show prep work.

inspiration and figuring out my booth layout.

Besides wanting to showcase my work I felt it was really important to also create an emotional feeling and mood. I want people to remember my art, but more then that, I want them to remember how they feel when they view my art. If there is anything I’ve learned from working in retail, it’s that you need to create an emotion association and attachment to the product. So, I wanted to create an environment that would be conducive for folks to easily experience that emotional connection with my artwork.
