This year's collaborative jack o'lantern effort by my husband and me. Personally, I think his turned out the best. Happy Halloween!

Change-of-address postcard

A few things have been keeping me pretty busy around here, including moving to a new home! Amidst the packing and cleaning, I got a chance to make this change-of-address postcard. Good thing, too. I can only go so long before experiencing serious drawing/creating withdrawals. It was so refreshing to get to do something just for fun.

Primitive


I've been wanting to try something with a more primitive style, and this week's Illustration Friday topic game me the perfect excuse. I think I'll call this one "Mondrian Circus."

Save


Ah, saving a little nest egg. There is such a nice sense of security just knowing you are there. But what about the day you grow big enough to turn it? I think I'll miss you.

Me at the Show

Here I am standing by my art at the BYU Illustration Alumni Show which was on display during the month of February. I and a fabulous time at the opening reception viewing all the great artwork, connecting with former classmates and professors, and meeting a few new faces as well. And thanks to all the family and friends who came! Here are some close-up shots of the "Little Monster" frame.

Nothings!


A few years ago, my mother-in-law decided she had acquired enough things in her life, and requested "no more gifts" for birthdays or holidays. Instead, she would prefer a written memory, so she could collect them in a book. I figured my husband's childhood memories were probably more valuable to her than my own, so for this past Christmas, I contributed by illustrating the memory he chose. Here is the memory that this picture illustrates:

""It was morning, and we were at the parking lot of the elementary school. [Brother] was in the very back seat of the van throwing a screaming tantrum. Mom was being a good mother and ignoring him to let it run it's course (which always seemed to take a long time). Then Mom asked what kind of treat we would like, and [Brother] screamed, 'NOTHING,' over and over. Eventually, Mom cheerfully agreed to get us "nothings." I'll never forget the confused look on [Brother's] face when Mom agreed with him. A short while later, we were munching on coffee cakes. The name stuck, and we have referred to coffee cakes as 'nothings' ever since."
