#inktober day 2! This is a mix of tombow markers, india ink, sakura micron pens, and p.h. martin's copper ink.

I call it "Rolling Off" because to me it has a water-like movement, and conceptually I was thinking of what sticks and what doesn't. But you are welcome to interpret whatever you see for yourself.

I love making my resin bee earrings. The mold-making process, pouring, making color choices, assembling, and packaging! I must say, designing the packaging for these was a lot of fun. When my customers receive their product, I want it to feel like unwrapping a special present. That's why I put a special personal touch into every shipment.

Finished up the sketch I started at last week's Open Studio Tour. I used #beepaper my favorite Super Deluxe sketchbook -- seriously, I have bought & filled up 2-3 a year of these in varying sizes since 2011... Also used copic markers, tombow markers, india ink, and a water brush.
Let's call this days 23-26 on the 30/30 challenge.

It's been so long since I carved wood that I'm encountering a bit of a re-learning curve. Good thing I have sharpening and honing tools! But I can't find my v-gouge..... #printmakingproblems

Day 3! Just a 5 minute sketch today -- had a busy tired day.  This heat wave really got me, I also didn't sleep til after 2 last night. Slept in a bit and then did some chores around the house, followed by work at @sucresucreminiatures and then dinner with family. 
This is from a photo I took of our farms zinnia flowers!

A 20-minute sketch of one of my succulent plants to kick off #3030atyac !
Are you doing the 30 days 30 drawings challenge? 
I chose chalk pastels for their looseness and how quickly you can get forms down. Also - who doesn't love blending.

"Summer Pineapple"

This piece is just a bit of fun. I love the taste of fresh pineapple in the summertime. I also think it's interesting that this fruit is a fashion/decorating trend at the moment. This piece is 9x12" on Arches Hot Press watercolor paper, I used watercolor pencils, Sennelier watercolor paints, Nova Neon pink acrylic paint, and a touch of copper ink.

Also available as a print on my Etsy store at the following link: http://ow.ly/W2qY30digyw .

Also coming soon to Etsy, flower crystal magnets & pendants! Here is a sneak peek of my prototype magnet. I'll be honest, I have to keep this one because I just love it too much. 
Made with resin & wildflowers I picked in Fort Ord then dried, and I handmade the mold out of a quartz crystal that some sweet hippies gave me a long time ago.

Making earrings and magnets outta these little guys! I love working with resin, but waiting for it to cure definitely tests my patience as an artist.
The process reminds me of printmaking; once the first good mold is made I can repeat it as much as I want! However that never means that two pieces will look exactly the same. I am still experimenting and learning! .

New lil watercolor - first in a series of summer succulents! This plant was given to me as a tiny cutting by my friend Alex. Two years(ish) later and it is thriving and so, so colorul! From delicate minty blues to lavenders and purples and bright pinks, it is the queen of my modest garden.
I am using this illustration to make some small products that will be on my Etsy soon so keep watching!

New design! I have a lot of floppy disk & old tech centered ideas that I want to explore... starting out with some light & fun illustrations before I delve into it more.
I used pen & ink, watercolors, and then applied text digitally.

When your first try at resin cast bees comes out bubbly, just paint it rose gold. Rose gold solves everything right?

"Flint, Michigan" is a piece about the titular city's lead poisoning crisis. 100% of proceeds of sales of prints of this piece (and the sale of the original) will be donated to relief efforts in Flint.

Original piece done with tombow markers on Bee paper.
Digital prints available on Etsy at http://ow.ly/SKRQ30axlht

"Singer Sewing Machine" is a charcoal drawing I did originally in 2013 but have revisited for digital prints now. There is something very special and universal about the sturdy and reliable vintage Singer. An ex of mine would use one often for his crafts, and I found the repetitive noise to be very soothing.

I have a run of digital prints of these available at my Etsy, available here http://ow.ly/KgOz30axmx9

"Canary Call" is an illustration that I made about climate change and the pressing need to take action, playing off of the 'canary in a coal mine' trope.
I used Tombow markers & pentel pocket brush pen on Bee paper.

I have just added prints of these to my Etsy! See them at http://ow.ly/kMvR30axkHk

Qandeel Baloch was on my mind today so I brought out my alcohol based markers, colored pencils, and a touch of gouache to do this sketch. I feel like she may be a recurring subject as I'm not sure if I truly captured her; I have been doing abstract work or animals for so long that my portraits are a bit rusty. Thinking about her & our global society & the power of social media.

"An Overthought"

Had a bout of overthinking the other night and this is what survived visual translation. My favorite aspect of working in abstraction is even with defined meaning it's not up to me what my viewer will receive from the piece. Which I suppose is the case for all art.

Some initial thoughts.. fully expect this case to be pivotal in US History. crossing my fingers that this pro-Muslim rights & unity will extend to an end of the global War on Terror.

“De Kooning & Basquiat” — 2016, micron pens, watercolor, and iridescent calligraphy ink on Bristol paper. A portrait of the Brest family cats, De Kooning (also known as Konnor) and Basquiat (also known as Bicky.) I am sensing a series of ‘seer cat’ illustrations… Artist’s cats are the most enigmatic, don’t you think?

"Shared Dreams"
watercolor & tombow markers on Bee paper. 
Inspired by a recent Radiolab episode exploring an almost neural network of mycelium in the forest of British Columbia that allowed trees to communicate, share glucose, share water between their roots. Nature is pretty amazing!
