Liz Calvi & The Mark Twain House

I realized this week that I never posted the amazing photos that Liz took of myself and my dollhouse at The Mark Twain House.

You can read my original post about Liz here!

To summarize though, Liz and I had the amazing opportunity to take photos in The Mark Twain House in Hartford, CT. We thought that the house would be a great pairing with the Victorian style of the dollhouse.

Here are a few of the favorite photos:

And hopefully you will see more collaborations between the two of us in the near future!

The Victorian Rabbit

Just a quick update today!

I have continued working on the wedding invites that I posted about last week. The bride I am working with asked if I could make a girl rabbit in Victorian dress that they could use as part of their backdrop. I am very curious about this backdrop and can't wait to see it when I attend the wedding!

This was very fun to work on. As you may have gathered I love drawing/ cutting out hair so a Marie Antoinette style is always an exciting challenge.

I never thought I would create a Victorian rabbit until this project haha I am lucky to have such a creative client.

Uppercase Magazine

I am so excited to say that I have been selected to be a part of Uppercase Magazine's Live/Work illustration issue!

" The tagline for UPPERCASE magazine is "for the creative and curious" and this really is the somewhat loose guideline to content appearing in the magazine. Though the content is based in graphic design, illustration and crafting as its starting points, with such a broad statement the articles can be quite eclectic. I think it is this curious bent that makes the magazine unique and hopefully surprising with each new issue." Janine Vangool  publisher /editor /designer

Each illustrator that is featured creates a piece for the magazine, as well as an interview. I will know the topic of my piece by the             end of this month!

February Birthdays

A few weeks ago I was discussing with one of my best friends Liz about how there are so many birthdays in February, and we named off quite a few mutual friends.

So although I made this quick birthday sign for my girlfriend (whose birthday is Saturday) it can be for any of you out there who have just celebrated or are about to celebrate a Feb birthday!

happy birthday

PS: I have a few very exciting projects coming up. I have also just discovered Neil Gaimans twitter illustration project, and if you did not know this before I LOVE NEIL GAIMAN and it has been a recent dream of mine to illustrate for him, so I cannot wait to participate.
