Merry Christmas!!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I tried posting this on Christmas, but aparently it never went through. Here it is again. I drew this on Sketchbook Pro on a tablet. Not nearly as nice as the Cintiq, but I'll take it. ;) 

Have a great New Years as well!

There are only 7 days left to buy pre-sale ticket bundles for Linda Marie Smith's Live music and multimedia event MEARRA-SELKIE OF THE SEA, coming to the Irish American Heritage Center March 1st 2014! There are different packages which includes prints, cds, dvds, and necklaces. Please check it out!

Catherine and I have been quite happy to be part of this project. We have created moving illustrations which will be playing behind Linda's band during her concerts. This art will provide dramatic background/mood/ambiance/color to the stage for a unique stage performance!

Blue Mermaid

Drawing very Disneyesque characters is my guilty pleasure! ;)

(Don't worry, I have plumper ones sketched out too, I just happen to be thin myself, so this comes more naturally.)

Informing Ape

Catherine and I are quite happy to finally be able to share another project we worked on this past year. We did character design and illustrations for a foodie website called Informing Ape. Another artist did some fun comics on there as well. Please check it out!

Mearra- Selkie from the Sea

Mearra- Selkie from the Sea is a beautiful, unique multimedia performance from musician Linda Marie Smith. Her lovely, heart-felt music tells the Celtic love story of a selkie named Mearra as she falls in love with a lonely fisherman, and discovers love and life on land. Catherine and I have created nearly an hour worth of visuals for this concert. Some of it can be seen in her promo video. (Since then the art direction has taken on a brighter note for readability during the performance.) Please check it out, and consider contributing to this project. Thanks!
