Music art

I'm very happy to be working on some new artwork for a local musician. She's a young singer/songwriter with an awesome voice, whose sound is inspired by folk and old country. I've seen her perform a few times and her music is right up my alley, so was psyched when she asked me to create some artwork for her new website and album. I've really been wanting to do some work for music packaging, since music is so important to me.

This is a banner I've created for her website:

I'll also be creating a poster for her and full album packaging, which I'll post once they are finished.

Check out her music here: http://www.myspace.com/mymymichaela

It's Carnival time!

Just wrapped up both of my Mardi-Gras inspired pieces for Six by Six Gallery's February show. I'm pretty excited about these, and still plan to revisit the themes in the future with the Spring and Autumn seasons. I adjusted the Winter piece a bit from the sketch stage to better tie in with the Summer piece and work together as a series.

Speaking of Six By Six Gallery, there's some exciting news--they've combined the gallery with their sister gallery-Charmingwall. http://www.charmingwall.com/
It's a bit of a more trafficked location (west village) and the monthly show openings will now be held here. They have also asked to sell framed prints of some of the pieces I've previously submitted! If you're interested, please contact the gallery about purchase!
