I just got back from a weekend in Charleston, SC. It was my first time there and I loved it. The city is beautiful and the plantation gardens had me swooning. This illustration was inspired by my trip.

It's only been six years, I thought it was time for a new banner on my 100th post.

Gone Fishing

For Illustration Friday's topic; gone fishing. I'm really happy with the way this one turned out. It's painted with gouache on hot press watercolor paper. I'm getting closer and closer to having a portfolio that I'm really proud of. I keep thinking "I just need one more piece and then I'll be ready to send it out to potential clients", but that one piece keeps turning into one more and one more. I don't know if I'll ever think it's ready.

The cat

I wanted to continue on my idea of painting my favorite bad girls, and Catwoman is probably my favorite. She's not all bad, she's not all good and what girl doesn't love jewels. Painted in gouache.

I painted these as a birthday present for my sister. She loves anything to do with sea creatures and the color turquoise.

my studio

Because I myself love to peek into people's homes, I thought I would share some of my studio space.

I thought I would show a sample of my sketchbook. Tonight I asked John to throw out some random words and I had to sketch them quickly. Here's what I came up with.
