So I realize its still a week away, but here is the first installments of monthly calendar layouts I'll be doing. (featuring some of the best parts of fall: hawthorne, rosehips, chinese lanterns, and woodsy mushrooms.) xo.

Good-bye to summer.

Something in the Air.

The air is starting to shift into fall! There are few more wonderful sensations in life. Our bit of yard in the back is full of overgrown vines and brambles right now, in the best way possible. Staring out into it is my favorite way to be distracted from work at my desk lately (and a great excuse to bring my paints outside for a while).

Something Simple

I'll be out on the islands this week helping with a photoshoot. This was a sketch of the marshlands from the last time I was working out there. Its such a different scene from the forests and hills where I grew up but I have a special place in my heart for the specific beauty of the low country.

Window Display: Potting Shed

One of my other creative loves is getting to work as visual merchandising for this store that I love. I'm trying to go back through the windows I've created and document them as illustrations. You can see photos of the real thing here!

Law and Order- SVU

I'm way excited to have finished this for fun. Episode after episode has been a creative companion and guilty pleasure while I work in the studio. Watching Olivia and Elliot fight crime on the streets of New York is supporting my reinspired love for the City. Also, Ice-T as a detective never gets old.

Book Covers: The Great Gatsby

Here is my Meatloaf Monday for this week!I love the Great Gatsby. I tried to think through other options for a more modern or obscure book but I couldn't get past my desire to create something just plane pretty in fitting with the decadence and beauty in Fitzgerald's novel. I'm loving working on more and more hand lettering so I was excited for this theme.
