Last week I got to hang out with my friends at SALT Project (you remember… the super creative, emmy winning film team?) to create a new video that demonstrates my process of making a linocut print – from start to finish. I love this simple, meditative process… carving away what is not needed until my image appears (there’s a life metaphor in there, I’m sure of it), and I hope that comes through in the video. Let me know what you think!
Hi friends! Just a quick reminder that registration for Sketchbook Skool closes this Friday! I think you’ll love this kourse – I’m one of 6 teachers who’s demonstrating their art techniques. Hope to see you in klass!

First new print of the year is now available in my shop! This is my illustration of the quote: “A year from now you may wish you had started today” by Karen Lamb. Kind of a good one to hang up in plain sight in January! Pick up one for yourself here!
(Speaking of which: I’m loving my intention to get on my yoga mat every day in 2016… So the right choice for me!) Did you all make any intentions/resolutions? How’s it going almost a week in?
Art Director Liz Kalloch from Mabel Magazine contacted me with a fun request — would I illustrate the quote: “A year from now you may wish you had started today” by Karen Lamb. She gave me the freedom to interpret it in any way I pleased. So after sketching out a couple different approaches I landed on this imagery: a little caterpillar sitting on a branch while he watched butterflies float up and away. It was what he could have become if he’d been brave. I really like how it turned out and Mabel ended up putting it on the inside front cover!
Thanks, Liz, for the opportunity!
