Mindful Magazine: Issue 8

These are a little old now, but here are my mindful/mindless spot illustrations for issue 9 of Mindful Magazine. As always, these were art directed by Meg Yoshida. It's always such a pleasure to work with her on these!

Today's Parent Magazine: Debate Illustration

Alright, so Today's Parent Magazine didn't go for the fuzzy peach idea that I blogged about previously. But an alternate idea I had was of a red panda, ready for her bikini wax, at the spa.  Above is the final (published in the June issue)!

You can read the debate online, here.

Fuzzy Peach, Smooth Peach

So I don't usually bother to post sketches I do for clients that aren't chosen for the final.  But I gotta say that I really liked these and was a tad disappointed they weren't chosen.

These were for a Today's Parent Magazine article about if you would choose to get a bikini wax just before childbirth. The client decided the peaches were a little risqué (and I don't disagree), so we went in a different direction for the illustration ... but c'mon, it's also pretty cute and hilarious ....

Modern Cat Illustration

A little while ago I was contacted by Jennifer Nosek, the Editor and Creative Director of Modern Cat Magazine, to do a full page illustration about cat speech. It had a super fast turn around time, but I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out.

Special thanks to Kathleen Grimes who snapped a photo of it in the magazine! Thank you!

Today's Parent Magazine: Debate Illustration

Here's the latest debate illustration I did for Today's Parent Magazine. It's debating if you, as a parent, would ever leave your child alone in a car (even for just a moment).  You can read it here.

This was art directed by Nicole Chung, who is always so great to work with.

Arts Market Display

Yay! I'm excited to share some photos of my booth display at Arts Market!  There's two locations in Toronto, and I chose to set up in their Leslieville location (1114 Queen Street East).

I've been really wanting to have my framed illustration prints up in the East end of Toronto for awhile now.  I was very pleased to find out about Arts Market.  Arts Market is different than other shops I've worked with.  They don't do consignment, instead they rent out smallish spaces inside the shop to local artists and creators.  If you live in the Toronto area, you should definitely check it out!

This is the first time I've created the display booth for my art prints.  I've never done a craft sale or seasonal market before ... though I've considered it many times.  I was pleased when I managed to scrounge up a second hand card shelf, and I had a great afternoon creating paper flowers from the most beautiful craft book, Paper to Petal.

I think it all came together pretty nicely.  My stuff will be up for a month ... maybe longer ... depending on how sales go!
