Drew some fashionable ladies tonight-one inspired by watching too much Mindy Project, one based on an outfit I would like to wear everyday. Soon it will be freezing and everyone will become giant hoodie monsters-until then, I will do my best to wear "outfits". Note that the outfit I would like to wear everyday is essentially a very subtle variation on hoodie monster-you simply swap out a giant sweater for the giant sweatshirt and add a jaunty scarf. Ta da!

Ahoy mateys! Finished the June MATS bootcamp assignment-Nautical Wall Art! The mini was ship in a bottle themed and I decided to keep that motif for my finished piece. Had a really good time with this one. On to my next and final bootcamp challenge! Huzzah!

Come down to 485 Cambridge St in Allston tonight at 6:30 pm for the Super Precious Tacos and Burritos show! With your $10 admission you get a Coronado Brewing Company beer and a bacon-y treat from Roxy's Grilled Cheese. More of a tequila and tacos person? Lone Star is right next door! Everyone wins! I had a really good time working on this theme. I'd wanted to do something with these old sketches for a while-the little mariachi girl was originally for a friend's bday invite, but I ended up going in a different direction and the wrap dress lady was never finished. I decided to try and incorporate her into a taco-centric piece, but wasn't really happy with how the composition was coming together and ended up completing the kneeling girl instead. Prints will be available tonight-hope to see you there!

Here's where I'm at with my first Make Art That Sells project-a cuckoo clock phone case!
I ended up choosing my castle clock for the final project and went with a palette I don't normally use to try and flex some color muscles. Still have a ways to go to finish it up but am having a great time with this assignment. Who knew I could make amends with purple, my color nemesis?!

Make Art That Sells Bootcamp mini assignment! In my last batch of sketches I tried to keep my doodling loose and explore some different media and mark making. With this round I had a theme and story in mind for each clock. For the first one I was thinking of a love story/musical/alps motif. Like Sound of Music, but with less nuns. The second revolves around a story of a Bavarian pretzel factory, run by a short tempered but benevolent cuckoo bird foreman. The clock on the far right is the clock I would've wanted as a kid...and still sort of want today. Looking forward to the main assignment-can't wait to see what other people come up with!

You guys I'm doing so many burpees. And just ran up the stairs of the Harvard Coliseum like, 800 times. Easily.* I also enrolled in Lilla Rogers "Make Art That Sells" Bootcamp! I'd been looking to add some new energy to my portfolio and push myself creatively with a group and MATS seemed like perfect match. The class kicked off this week with our first mini assignment-cuckoo clocks! I am so excited to be part of such a talented community and this week have been happily exploring the world of folk art, clocks, woodland creatures and pretzels. I feel stronger and more toned than I have in weeks and I didn't even have to pick up a kettlebell once.
*No I didn't. It's just that bootcamp makes me think of crossfit. Which makes me want to lie on the floor.
