2013 Calendar Giveaway

It's that time of year again when I design my 2013 Buy Local Calendar and am ready to share with the world. The tea towel and paper calendars have become a tradition in many people's life's as I'm realizing from selling weekly at the Brooklyn Flea. As early as the summer I've been getting requests so happy to finally have it.

This is also the first giveaway I've done in a while so please place a comment below on which version of the 2013 calendar you prefer, tea towel or paper, and I'll randomly pick a winner on October 24th.

News From My Studio

Life has been unbelievably hectic since I last managed to post way back in May and I'm realizing that it's time to delegate and hire people to help me out more.

It's been an interesting 2 years growing my product line and at the same time taking on 
more and more commercial illustration work.
It certainly feels amazing to be filling my days with all this creativity and observe how both ends of my business feed each other.
I've also hired a great team to redesign my website so will soon have a comprehensive portfolio, shop and blog all under one roof.
Then I'll be posting up-to-date news and some behind the scenes pictures of projects in progress.

In the meantime, please be patient and continue to follow me as there will be more consistency in 2013.

Here are some projects I've been busy on. I'm also working on 2 more collaborations with Chronicle Books, a joint venture with the American Museum of Natural History and a wonderful new restaurant opening in Chelsea Market - more to come on those.

First up is a chance to win my Perpetual Calendar. Last week I wrote a piece for the Chronicle Books blog and if you head here and place a comment you might win.

I've also had the pleasure of illustrating for Everyday with Rachel Ray on a regular basis.

And Southern Living Magazine.

 Detroit Bride Magazine.
Healthy Cooking Magazine.

Recently at the Brooklyn Flea I met 2 lovely Japanese people who run a company called East out of Tokyo. They have the great job of curating museum stores in Japan and hired me to design a tea towel, tote and t-shirt for an upcoming exhibit from a collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. They wanted to explore Brooklyn and show their visitors some typical neighbor hood sights.

HUGE Magazine Cover

About a month ago I was contacted by HUGE magazine in
Japan to do the forth coming cover. My husband's a big fan of this
well designed men's style magazine and I was excited to do a
piece that took me away from my usual subject matter.

They are also collaborating with MUJI in Tokyo on an exhibition
showcasing the work of the artists in this issue.

Claudia Pearson for West Elm

It's with huge excitement that I can finally reveal
my secret project I've been dying to share for a year now.

I've collaborated with West Elm and created a line of tea towels
and plates for their Summer 2012 collection.
They have been the nicest company to work with allowing me freedom
to come up with ideas.
When they suggested a hot dog plate with a dachshund on it,
I must admit I was dubious but I've fallen for the sausage
dog in a big way. I hope you do too and please head
here to purchase before they sell out.
