Once again, I had the pleasure of adding another alphabet illustration to Happy Happy Art Collective. This time it was the letter U! This meant having fun with ukuleles and unicorns, of course! Like always, I worked in the predetermined palette for the alphabet and took this as an opportunity to try something new. I think over the last year I have enjoyed experimenting with more simplified shapes and seeing how I could abstract my characters. Thus, we get sock-puppet-head-unicorn. And I love him! I can see him existing as a great stuffed animal, lanky limbs and all.
In other news, my wedding is about 3 weeks away! I am getting ready for my big day, which includes illustrating a bunch of fun wedding surprises for our guests (you'll see them afterwards-promise!). For now that is all under wraps because I don't want to accidentally spoil anything. All the major things are done, and now I'm just tackling those little details that realistically no one will notice (like whether I choose white or off-white place cards). I'm extremely excited for that and our honeymoon! So dear readers, bare with me if I'm a little absent from the blog for a while. Just assume I am either swimming in favors or on the beach relaxing after the craziness (and swimming for real!).
I'll leave you with one more fun announcement- I am teaching undergraduates now at Watkins College of Art, Design, & Film in Nashville. The class is focused on business and how to live as an artist/freelancer after graduation. Oooooo writing resumes! Client relationships! There are a few wonderful guest artists I have lined up and I can't wait to have my students meet them.
So much (good stuff) is happening right now. Stay tuned in the coming weeks- I should have more good news to announce soon!
