Drawn In

This month another beautiful book by the talented
Julia Rothman is out and available right here.
Entitled Drawn In, it takes it's format from her Book By Its Cover
blog that reviews all sorts of wonderful books from fine art,
children's, comics, handmade and sketchbooks.
Compiling spreads from 44 sketchbooks belonging to
fine artists, illustrators, graphic designers and cartoonists
the book is an inspiring peek into the world of the
artists mind and creative process.
Oh, and did I mention that I'm included in here.

Happy Friday

I love this time of year at the market.
I usually slice these thinly and throw them in a salad
but, have been searching for some more
adventurous radish recipes.
Please leave a comment if you have any to share.

New Size Prints in my Shop

For people with limited space, budgets or just
because they like smaller artwork I've made most
of my prints available in 9x12 and 6x9.
Head over here to see what's in.

Renegade Craft Fair

This weekend it's the return of the annual huge outdoors
Renegade Fair in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. If you've never been then
it's worth the trip to see over 300 artists selling their wares.
I will be at booth 188 by the main entrance on Bayard and Union.
I will NOT be at the Brooklyn Flea this Saturday.

Penha Image Magazine

Last week I completed a few illustrations for a
new lifestyle magazine called Penha Image (Alma Media Publishing)
which caters to affluent, brand-conscious travelers across the
Caribbean and USA.

I was commissioned to do 3 illustrations highlighting Caribbean
fruits and vegetables alongside 2 recipes. Of course my
favorite subject matter and with a little bit of island traveling
under my belt I hope I achieved some authentic flavor.

Martha Stewart

In my last post I mentioned all the wonderful jobs I've been busy with
and today I can share one of these. A few months ago I was
commissioned to do several illustrations for Martha Stewart.

I did an advertorial piece for Ball, the company that makes the
jars for preserving and pickling. The illustration will be out
on the news stands later this month.
I also designed some jar label templates that you can
download from the site and use when you make your own
jam, jelly, chutney, relish or salsa.
Follow the link above and the bar across the top of the
page will take you there.
