Paintings, Peonies, Board Books, Otters, and more good stuff

Some great news to share:

First, I am in an art show opening this Friday, June 1st, running through July 1st, 2018 at Nahcotta in Portsmouth, NH. The show is called Audio/Visual, and for it, I was asked to create artwork inspired by a favorite record. I chose the wonderful Year of Meteors by Laura Veirs, which you can see online here. For more about the show opening and the great work by other artists, head here.

Speaking of small things with rounded corners… Stack the Cats is now a board book! Find it in the shop here.

You can find a couple other new things in the shop as well, such as this new Peony Pin! Made in collaboration with my favorite San Diego flower shop, Native Poppy.

Lastly, I recently traded sketches with other illustrators for this fun swap run by my friend and former Art Director Alyssa Nassner called Ten Paces and Draw. My painting of the baby mop — a “Useless Invention” (but actually kind of a brilliant one) is inspired by my delightful new niece Goldie Jo. Swipe here to see the sketch by Eva Galesloot that inspired my final — or see the sketch I made for Brooke Smart to draw from here.
