the those guys charity auction


Hey Everyone! So I'm really excited to announce my participation in an Art Auction organized by my pals The Those Guys.

TTG is holding a charity art auction and it's going on right now!
The auction is from November 10th - November 15th.
Here's the link:

The Those Guys Art Auction

So check out the all the amazing artists and their work....and bid! It's for a great cause.

The auction is for charity and the group that TTG is working with is Donorschoose.org. They provide art supplies and materials to schools in need. TTG is concentrating on classrooms in Southern California.

Donorschoose.org, TTG's Donors Page

Even if you don't participate in the auction, you can still help with a donation of any amount. So please check them out and consider helping out young, eager creative minds.

TTG will also be a screening the movie "The Goonies" this Saturday November 15th at the Rialto Theater in South Pasadena, California. The movie is free with a small donation at the door.

And finally, above is the piece I painted for the auction. The theme was movies that influenced you when you were a kid, and I think it's pretty clear as to what movie my artwork is based on. The artwork is framed and titled "To Oz."

Big thanks to The Those Guys for their invitation to participate!

two years ago today

Don't have any new artwork to post today but I will be posting some soon. Been working on lots of animal illustrations lately, and it's been pretty fun.

Today I'm also celebrating my 2 year Wedding Anniversary. Above is a photo of part of my anniversary gift from my husband. I also own the Cinderella book featuring Mary Blair's concept art and didn't know they published Alice in Wonderland as well, so it was a nice surprise.

August 27th 2006 was the best day ever. The past two years have been so awesome. It's amazing how many good memories and good things can happen in what really is just a small amount of time. The days go by fast but I often stop and remember to be thankful for all the good things in my life.

Oh and the other bit of news I have to share...my husband and I are going to have a baby! Now we'll have a better excuse when we're out shopping for toys. :)

think green

These illustrations were inspired by Earth Day and also from eco-friendly products I've seen in the past couple of months. Some of the illustrations featured in previous posts have been modified a tad here to complete this set.

I'm also planning on adding merchandise to my online shop using these illustrations. This is fun stuff my friends.

Here's a scan of one of my meadow gold ads featuring the art of Mary Blair. Thought it would be appropriate for today. It also makes me want to run out and get some mint ice cream.

Today also happens to be my mom's birthday, so Happy Birthday Mom!

And Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!

my weekend in san francisco . part 2

So last weekend my husband Wayne and I decided to take a trip up to San Francisco. Best unplanned trip ever! We love going up north and this time around we were able to feast upon the goodness that is Mary Blair at the Cartoon Art Museum.




One of my absolute favorites. So unbelievably happy to see the original.



Perhaps these photos will get you chuffed enough to see the exhibit. I know not everyone can make it, but for those who can (and those who love the art of Mary Blair) I highly recommend it!

umbrella


So I decided to brush up on my (weak) French and Spanish skills by making flashcards. Here is the first French one inspired by last weekends rainfall. We got lots of rain which is quite unusual for Southern California, and it was just wonderful! Doesn't look like there will be any rain this weekend but I will have my polka dotted parapluie just in case. Hehehee.
