100th post project!

Happy 100th blog post loyal blog-readers!

With the show down, graduation over, and summer on its way, I have some new projects in the works. One of the projects required an entire day of googling for owl reference. You'll be seeing more of these little guys in the coming months...


The end of an adventure. Who knows what's next?

Thesis Show

Many thanks to everyone who came out to the show yesterday. All of your support meant so much. Likewise, thank you dear readers from far away for messages and notes!

The show opening was amazing. I felt honored to have my things up on the well with so many incredibly talented people. Congratulations to everyone!

And finally, a couple of photos of my corner of the gallery:

Five books!

Loyal readers. ;)

Big Day!

Thesis show day!

It's hard to believe that it's already May, the show is hung, and I graduate in a week. The last two years have been unbelievable, and tonight is the culmination of a year of work. I'm excited to the point of shaky hands. That said...

If you're around the NY area, I'll see you tonight at the SVA gallery - 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor - from 6-8pm.

Oh, and if it's any incentive at all, I'll have some sweet merch!

I made stamps, lickable and stickable.

And buttons... heaps of buttons.

And will be selling the first official run of Amelia Pepper.

Butterflies at the Museum

For one of my last drawing classes, we went to the Museum of Natural History. Our assignment was (as always) draw loads, but in addition to the usual draw, draw, draw, we had to create a promotional postcard for the museum using one of our drawings.

I actually had a really great drawing day and came out with a bunch of things I liked, but halfway through a drawing of some ducks, a security guard came up to me and asked if I wanted to check out the butterfly conservatory. Apparently he'd found a ticket on the floor that needed to be used within the next fifteen minutes. I hastily agreed and headed to the conservatory.

For those of you who don't know, when I was a little girl, I had two "pet" butterflies; they made an appearance in our backyard every summer, and provided you were patient enough, they landed on any outstretched hand our arm.

It was an easy decision... I designed my postcard around the drawings I did at the conservatory.
