New Spring Tea Towels

Absence of new posts on my blog can only mean one thing
and that's that I'm super busy working on new projects.

I also decided last week that it was time to freshen up the
blog a bit and add some new features. You may have noticed
some new buttons on the right that direct readers to my
professional portfolio site and a more detailed list of the press
I've had in the past year.

I also thought it would be nice to reintroduce myself to my
devoted followers and new readers and offer some details
about my life, work, home, family and pastimes.
So, stay tuned for these in upcoming weeks.

In the meantime, I was in two minds whether I should share my new Spring
products as I go along or reveal them with a big fanfare when
they're ready to buy but I've decided a sneak peek would be nice.

I'll have these 2 tea towels available by April 1st, working on
some 18 x 24 screen printed posters and a journal.

New work from Claudia

Well, actually some old work that I rediscovered today.
Last year I embarked on a project recording my friends and their
houses intending to capture the corners and parts that make their
homes completely unique. Unfortunately (or fortunately), my product line took
over and this project went on the back burner.

I was experimenting with new techniques by using colored pencils
combining with texture and flat areas.
I think I need to visit this style somehow.
What do you think ?

Back in December I completed the first in a series of 3 posters
for Greenmarket/GrowNYC. It's a match made in heaven and I'm
really looking forward to a developing relationship with them.

Following lots of inquiries, I'm pleased to say that the poster will
be available to buy in the beginning of March.
I'll keep you posted.

And I have Herbs to do for Spring and Tomatoes in Summer.

February 1 Giveaway

I'm back in the swing of my monthly giveaways and will
be collaborating again with some fabulous designers.

On the first of every month I will be offering a 12x9 print
of our seasonal recipes from 2010.
Just to remind you all, last year I joined forces with local
Brooklyn chef Sung Uni Lee and we produced a seasonal recipe every month.
Sung designed the culinary side and I illustrated it.
This culminated in a set of 12 recipe cards complete with directions on
the back and envelopes for sending to loved ones.

So, to kick of February here's our Sweet Tart Soup as a kitchen print.
To enter please post a comment below on how you eat locally
in the winter months. The winner will be randomly picked on
Tuesday, February 8th.
