Friday, May 14, 2010's that time of year again.

To be honest, I've struggled lately. I know, I know....I'm always going on and on about how I've struggled, and that I'm trying to find a new, fresh direction. But, well....that's my life, I guess.

The arts festival is coming up at the end of June. I'm under pressure to produce now. I want to go in to the festival with new perspective, and fresh material. I really don't want to go in, and showcase work that looks exactly like what I did last year. To avoid repetition, I'm starting to re-employ some color in my work.

This is an example of the direction I'm pursuing. This isn't the final destination of my new direction, obviously. It's only a starting point. I'm well enough pleased with it. I especially love the structure of her ankles and feet. The are kind of all over the place...but that's what I love about them.

Back on track!

I'm back! And I just finished T-shirt and poster designs for the "One Good Reason" anti-smoking campaign! I'll be the featured artist for May. I'm very, very, very happy with the design. I'm hoping to see some of my shirts walking around out there!

Comm Arts

Have any of you ever looked at Communication Arts, the magazine? I do...constantly. Well, I decided to enter their illustration contest. It was all very rushed, and I had to hurry some of my stuff along, but here are the five pieces that I entered. There are always so many fantastic artists who enter, so I'm just happy that I got the application. Honestly I'm not planning to be published in the mag, but it was at least a goal of mine to enter the contest this year. I'm going to be working on some more solid pieces, and enter next year again.
