I recently completed a commissioned illustration which was to represent 2009 in the world of business. I used a slightly different style to make it more editorial.

For many companies this year, business was like pulling a boat through the desert. Let's hope that 2010 is smooth sailing for most of us! Good luck and I wish you all a happy, healthy and very CREATIVE 2010!!!

Little did Timmy know that he was the first kid to ever hop on a dragon! He was a pioneer!

This is an idea that I've had for a while, and with this week's IF prompt I thought it would be appropriate. I wasn't sure if to dress up the boy with a different outfit as if he was part of dragon land or to make it obvious that this is his imagination, therefore he is in PJ's. What do you think?
I'll be coloring this soon and re-posting.

Congrats to Vanessa for winning a signed print of my work!

Happy New Year to all! and may 2010 bring you health, happiness and success! I cannot complaint about 2009 as it was very good to me and my family.

I have some bittersweet news. I had my first illustration published on an online magazine which is pretty exciting. However, the Magazine has just announced that they are closing and their last issue will be in March.

IF:CRUNCH and 200th POST!!!

I thought I was going to have the time to post this before today, but time flew by this week. I decided to post it anyway since I thought the bunny was cute. It's not a great illustration overall, but it was good to hold a pencil and draw for fun away from all the deadlines and commotion of the holidays.

This is my 200th post and I've been thinking about doing something special to celebrate this post and to thank all of you for your support and friendship. I've connected with some great people through this blog and in the spirit of giving, I've decided to give away 1 signed 8 1/2" x 11" print of my work or smaller depending on what piece you pick to one lucky winner. You get to choose which one, from my web site or from work I've posted here. All you have to do is leave a comment from now until Christmas Eve...and I will draw a winner on Christmas Day and post it here on the 26th.

I hope you are enjoying the holidays.

I finally get to share some of the things I've been working on...

This is a logo I recently designed for an upcoming Auction Gala event at my kid's school. I will be designing the invite to the event as well, so I'll be posting that later on as well.

On a previous post I had shown the invite and place cards for a Baptism. Here's the rest of that project; table numbers and Baptismal programs. I designed and printed the programs and assembled the 7 page booklet which goes inserted in pocket folder (from I was able to add another of my illustrations to this piece, and I was quite happy with the outcome.

The table numbers:

These are the post cards for the white elephant party I have every year. These turned out really cute. One of my favorites.

I haven't had much time to draw this week, but I hope to get back into it soon. I'm still debating whether or no to go to the NY conference. Any ideas??

Have a great week!
