Patterns and Ohger

finished the clock print today!

WHAT!??? Arrolynn is posting! I'm sorry to all three of you that follow my blog...it's been ages since I've posted anything. The things that I've been working on I'm either not allowed to show them, or they're just really boring. No one wants to see my mailing list. One thing I have been doing lately is working on prints and patterns. I'm starting to experiment with them to open the field of work. It's really exciting if you think of it....there's greeting card companies...wallpaper, stationary, clothes.. so many people need patterns! So here is my first attempt at a repetitive pattern. Oye. I really had some issues when it came to repeating the tile...but I did learn alot and I had a blast. I drew it with pen and scanned it in and then colored in photoshop, but I am also going to paint one. right now I'm just playing around... Next I'm working on one with clocks. In other news! The guys over a Drawger.com contacted me a little over a month ago with the exciting news that they're starting a new site but for up and coming illustrators. If your familiar with Drawger it's a place to showcase illustrators working today, but it's invitation only. Ohger is going to be a place for new talent that art directors and editors and whatnot can visit. It runs just like Drawger... it's by invitation or applying and it's only open to current students or recent graduates. So go check it out! I promise I'll post more.

This weekend I worked on an illustration for the Los Angeles Times. I talked to them on Thursday night, and they wanted to see sketches by the next day and a final on Monday. The article was really great. It was in the food section and it was talking about how these days organic and ethnic foods are more accessible to the public. You can walk into any grocery store and buy things from the organic section. So the sketch they went with was a field with rows of vegetables playing off of the idea of grocery isles, with people shopping between them with shopping carts. The design editor was incredibly nice and I really enjoyed working on this project!

This is for the "Waking the Giants" Ringling 100 project. It's going to be really interesting to see how it turns out. I haven't done any swirls in an illustration since thesis...so I thought I'd reminisce with this one.

I'm still here!

Hello! It's been ages since I've posted. I've been working on a couple books, so that's been fun. Also recently I found out that I got an illustration into the 2009 Society of Illustrators student exhibition. I didn't think that could happen since I already graduated. More shocking then that is I received the Albert Dorne Scholarship. Even better is that my buddies Gail, Tina, and Sarah are in the show too! I was so excited when I found out that I burnt all my giraffe and airplane cookies. It's such a great opportunity and honor, congratulations to everyone else that got in!!
