shop news

in celebration of false spring, there are new herbarium pinback buttons in my shop: lily-of-the-valley, queen anne's lace, rowan berry, and a flower i made up.

i also finally added a few original paintings, including my izzy lane illustrations, created for amelia's compendium of fashion illustration (update: already sold!) and will be adding more in the near future. one of a kind! up for grabs!

czech sports stars of tomorrow

all about the up-and-coming girl athletes of the czech republic in the february/march issue of prague's men/women only. they are: denisa rosolová (athletics), dominika šteglová (floorball), šárka pančochová (snowboard), markéta audyová (yachting), kateřina cachová (heptathlon), kateřina elhotová (basketball), and veronika vítková (biathlon).

i love the opportunities to learn about new things from very specific jobs like this. now i know what kind of shoes olympic yachters wear and how to draw a biathlon rifle!

jack and the beanstalk

it's fairytale friday! i thought of this name on monday and had to wait all week to share the next chapter from fairytale food: jack settles down mid-beanstalk to enjoy a hearty packed lunch.

my illustration margarita was accepted into the communication arts illustration annual 53! i hear this is some kind of big deal so let's see if anything special happens when the book comes out. your positive response was the reason i chose to submit her in the first place - thank you!
