A drawing I did today for no other reason than I wanted to.


Because no one is better at it than you.

Let's Get Some Shoes

Hello, All!
Sorry for the radio silence. 
But I'm about to start making up for it - lots of projects in the works!

First, a just for fun (joke) sketch I did for a friend.
They're launching a great new shoe company soon.
You should check them out here!
Which one is your favorite?

Princess by Design


I was recently commissioned to design and create a Disney inspired princess
version of a spunky, spirited birthday girl.

Um, YES. Yes, I will do that.
It was a blast.

Meet Clara.



Here is the original sketch, done in a Starbucks in Cambridge on a gloriously lovely day.



I don't usually do the middle step, but I wanted to make sure I liked the color concept I'd chosen.
Thought it might be fun to line them up side by side.

 This is my favorite of the color schemes I tried. 
I would wear this all the time, always, forever.


Here are some funky, in-between stages that I thought had kind of an interesting look to them.

They'll Hough and They'll Puff...


And they'll blow your mind!

In preparation for my trip to NYC this month to see Julianne and Derek Hough's 
MOVE LIVE on TOUR
I created my third installment of goofy celebrity drawings, this time a "selfie"
with the talented sibs (since I can't afford VIP tickets to take a real photo).

The following photos are from my Instagram account.

The drawing is 2.5" x 2.5"
I added this last one for scale.

Before the recent, big move to Boston, I made some parting gifts for my coworkers.
