for a birthday gift this year, my mother in law got me a two year subscription of vogue. uh, best gift ever! all i ever do now is flip a dozen times through the pages of vogue and sketch in them and sketch from them. i love it! so some sketches i worked on in the past two days.

austin, texas

last weekend i accompanied my husband on his theoretical psychology conference in austin. never having been there, we were both excited to explore the party city that austin is known for. we're not much of partiers, but it was still fun to explore 6th street at night and shop on soco. oh i even got to reunite with an old friend from high school. three years is to dang long! check out the adventures!

 delicious specialty of hickory street, fish tacos!

oh valentine.

a little late valentine's post, but i figured it'd still be worth putting up. this valentine's my hubs and i were super busy, so we couldn't celebrate the day of love in just one day. that's why we did valentine's weekend. it has to be done when you're married to a graduate student. check out all the fun.

a gift for my mister. a book of love. 

another gift. my hubs and i are big travelers, so a poster for our love of traveling had to be made. poster photo taken in yellowstone.

now for valentine treats! 
ginger rose cupcakes and strawberry italian soda. nomnom.

well, hello.

It's been awhile since I've posted on this blog. My apologies! I've been so busy redesigning my website and I've kind of stuck to blogging on my tumblr. I tried to stray from blogspot, but looks like I'm coming back because not many people have tumblr. So looks like I have to juggle three different sites to keep my peeps up to date.

Not much has been going on other than I'm now a freelance illustrator! I stay cooped up (and I mean that with true enthusiasm) in my office sketching, painting, and making books. I love it! Here's some recent work...check it!


Oh and some fun news, I recently submitted some work for the Society of Illustrator student scholarship  contest. I don't know how to feel about it because I can't imagine getting any awards for my work. But joining contest is a good way to staying involved/active as an artist. Well, happy Wednesday!
