Mardi Gras Inspired art for 6x6

Wanted to share some new sketches I'm working on for a submission to Six by Six Gallery's February show. Being so inspired by the rich culture of New Orleans, I've had this theme in my head for quite awhile, and now with Mardi Gras right around the corner and Six by Six Gallery still taking submissions for their monthly shows, it just seemed like the perfect time to dive into this subject matter.

I love Mardi Gras masks and all kinds of costuming-making in general, so got interested in creating a representation of each of the four seasons with a girl in a mask; these are sketches for Summer and Winter. Would love to get to Spring and Fall to submit all 4 to the show as a series, but juggling a few assignments right now so will see how far I get before the Jan 15th deadline....

Final products

I've recently gotten a glimpse a few of the projects I've worked on this year in their final context.

Made's blog is up, using the fruit art I created as part of their developing identity:


Can't wait to see some of the product display using the art!

The "Changing Body" covers I did for Fairview Press are up on Amazon-was happy to see how the design came out

And Scones and Sensibility is now on the shelves in your local Bookstore! :)
