Hey look what friends make! Shout out to my illo buddy Caitlin for being a fun and assertive partner ;) Hope you all like this piece as much as I do!
Challenge 42: Complete Partnership: Caitlin and Casey’s Children’s Book Spread
I think it would be safe to say that Casey and I thought this would be a lot easier than it actually was! Working together consistently required a lot more communication, patience, and compromise than just pasting together two different sections that we worked on separately.
We would each work on the piece for 30 minutes, which was a perfect limit so neither of us could “take over” stylistically, but also made compromising a lot more complicated! It was actually quite funny, because in our last bit of work during Skype, we revealed that we’d both been insecure about our aesthetic coming through. I suppose that means we had actually done a good job with our collaboration!
In the end, I truly believe we brought out the best in each other, because this piece is really exciting! Casey pushed me in ways I hadn’t been pushed in a long time, and this art is a true union of our two illustration voices. Thanks for willing to be pushed, and pushing me back, Casey. This was a great experiment!
Also- just a side note- this process GIF is super cool!

Hello everyone! I’m excited to announce my Etsy shop is back up and ready for business with a fun new addition- a 2014 Floral Calendar! This was a project that I had been wanting to do for a while now, and it’s exciting to see it all come together. Each month has it’s respective birth flower and each of them with different shapes and color pallets. Hope you all enjoy as much as I had fun making these!

I’m super excited to share my recent illustration for Light Grey Art Lab’s show 6 Degrees. We were asked to depict something both personal and specific to where we live. I chose to show a favorite spot of Alex and I overlooking downtown Chicago. It’s been a fun illustration to put together and I can’t wait to see all of the other work from the fellow participating artists!

Tonight, as you read this very post, I’m at the awesome Light Grey Art Lab for the opening reception for the show, In-Place. I chose to do the natural rock pools found in Pamukkale, Turkey. I’m so very honored to be in this show with incredible illustrators whom I admire. You can purchase a print of the Pamukkale Rock Pools here, and I’ll make sure to post more photos of the reception this week to come!
