Walking Along the Face of the Earth

Life’s been pretty busy, and I find myself wishing I had more time. This summer I’ve been working on completing several editorial illustrations as well as design-oriented patterns for my portfolio. I’m finding that I absolutely love looking at and dreaming up patterns and designs for anythinng ranging between stationary and wall decor. However, I’m feeling rather stressed and pressured between my steady job and my summer assignments, and I’m afraid my creative spirit is feeling rather suffocated. I need to remedy this soon.

Anyway, here are some unfinished pieces as well as a finished illo. Tapir

It’s a tapir! I’m not satisfied with this spot illustration yet, and I think it’s because I was trying a different color technique that clashed with my natural tendencies.

Baby Animals Outlines

Some outlines that are going to be turned into a pattern. Hurrah for hooved baby animals! 

The Grand River 

Finished freelance work featuring the Grand River and Grand Rapids city of Western Michigan. It will be displayed on 8.5? x 11? presentation folders, and I can’t wait to get my own copy. It’s so exciting to be able to see one’s work in actual application. I’ll be sure to post photos when I receive mine! I have several more in-progress works and another nearly finished piece, but nothing else scanned at the moment. I’ve never had so many in-progress works before, and it’s certainly not helping with how scattered my mind feels.

And because I love them so….

Crow and Jinni

It’s a rare moment of peace between Crow and Jinni.


Jinni has such beautiful markings, and her face is so cool. Half is orange tabby and half is dark tabby.
