Hey there, long time no post!
I just wanted to show you a couple of concept sketches for a children's book I'm working on for UMass: Worcester entitled "Siegfried Goes to the Hospital." It's about a stegosaurus named Siegfried who eats too much junk food and gets sick! Silly Siegfried. I'm having a lot of fun working on this project, though, so I wanted to share Siegfried with you.
I also had an interview at Converse shoes two weeks ago for their girls/womens footwear line as a designer. Wish me luck! And thanks again to the beautiful Lindsay Small for all her help and support. Speaking of, pick up the newest comic anthology Detour! Her artwork is featured on the cover! Artists include the great Andy Fish, Veronica Hebard, Derek Ring, and others.
In sadder news, a local gallery I frequently show at called Space 242 is on hiatus currently because of a break-in at their building. No artwork was taken, and I'm glad. What a tragedy it is to lose a piece of artwork. TV's and iPods and wallets can be replaced, but not personal artwork. So I understand the need for a break with the gallery, but I'm so sad that the current opening has been cancelled. I had two pieces in, so since you can't see them there, here they are!
Thanks again for looking. New things up on etsy soon? I believe so. :) Look for more updates on Siegfried in the coming weeks!
