Dylan and I are headed to Miami in the morning for the South Beach Food and Wine Festival. I can't wait to jump in the chlorine-colored ocean tomorrow morning, after I recover from the 7 am flight. I'm going to be doing live illustration of my South Beach adventure for Evian who is a sponsor of the event, and Dylan will be tweeting the drawings @evianwater. It's pretty much the coolest job to get to draw and eat a bunch of food on the beach for a long weekend. So follow us on twitter if you'd like, should be fun!

pet portrait!

My friend Kaitie recently commissioned me to do a couple pet portraits, and here is one of her beautiful cat Jolene. My mom used to run her own pet portrait business, Blue Dog Pink Kitty, before I was born, so I tried to channel a little bit of that. Her's was, like, really serious though: she would drive great distances to meet and photograph the pets and their owners before doing large, detailed watercolors.

dandelion sunburst

Working on some new things, FINALLY! Dylan and I had a lovely creative Friday yesterday with our friends Tuesday, Pete, and Kaye, and I had the first chance in so long to just sit and paint whatever I wanted. Kitty cuddles, lots of snacks, and homemade ginger syrup drinks were also highlights. I have lots of new fun stuff to edit now, so I will be trying to update the blog more, yay!
