2013 Calendars are Here!!

Sorry for the break in blogging! It's not that I haven't been creating illustrations & textiles like mad, but I've actually been doing the 9-5 thing since the summer, so time has slipped on by... Anyway, here is my new 2013 Tea Towel Calendar, featuring two things I miss terribly, Brooklyn and Catter - although it could represent any city. This would make a great gift for the holidays, don't you think? It is available for sale in my shop.

Peaceable Kingdom Toile De Jouy

I recently illustrated an original, hand-drawn scene featuring extinct animals. The Wooly Mammoth, Caspian Tiger, Giant Moa, and Horned Gopher are having tea. I created a toile pattern out of the drawing, adding the Xerces Blue Butterfly, Dodo, and Labrador Duck playing amongst the trees and grass. Can't wait to have this one printed on fabric!

Some New Textiles

As I've said before, we recently moved across the country from Brooklyn, NYC to San Francisco. It has been a big change and there have been many serious hiccups preventing us from truly being settled, such as a horrible leg break for me at the start of 2012! But I really love our apartment and have been trying to make it home. Here are some new textiles I designed for our home, for blankets, curtains, pillows and other little accessories. If you're interested, check out all of my textile designs here!

DJ PreSkool at High Horse Saloon

Here's a new poster I created for DJ PreSkool's Tuesday Night DJ Gig, at High Horse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This one was super fun to work on. Wish I could be there!

Flower Curtain

I recently took a floral print that I had designed and turned it into a textile.
Above is the original piece...
...and here it is as a shower curtain! A flower curtain, if you will.

The Sun and the Moon

I created these two little illustrations for a project at home. I put them in embroidery hoops and am planning to hang them on either side of our bathroom window (still settling into our new apartment - the decorating part is so fun!). I think they'd also be great on pillows and tee shirts, and have so many friends with little ones on the way that a moon onesie is definitely on the project horizon!

Two New Posters!

I've only been in San Francisco for a few months, and unfortunately for me, most of the time I've spent here has been at home nursing my broken leg (ouch!). But luckily you can still draw if your leg is broken, and luckily I still have great friends and clients back in Brooklyn!

These two new posters are for DJ PreSkool, for whom I did this poster a few months back. As always, click to enlarge!

Paper Bicycle: Damask

I was recently lucky enough to travel to France, and spent a day at Versailles. I just loved Marie Antoinette's little farm - the houses were so cute! The scenery, art and furniture of Versailles were definitely an inspiration to me, especially all of the wonderful damask patterns - I have photos of the wallpaper and textiles alone! I added a sun into the pattern as a tribute to Louis the XIV, the Sun King.

It was so much fun working with the team at Paper Bicycle this week! Chris, Lindsay and Francesca are super talented and all-around very cool people! Please check out their blog and tumblr!

Paper Bicycle: Butterfly

I have always been fascinated with mounted and framed butterflies and would love to have a pink, polka-dotted wall to display a collection of them someday. A girl can dream, can't she?
