I’ve decided to do the always fun Tacoma is for Lovers craft fair February 8th & 9th again this year. It is always a great assortment of vendors at my favorite place in Tacoma, King’s Books. I’ve decided to bring mostly new stock and I’ve ordered some goodies printed with my art from Moo and RedBubble. The Moo order just got here and everything came out so beautifully! Here are a few snapshots (taken on top of a bunch of in-progress drawings!).
I ordered a bunch of notecards printed with a selection of Dream Scene drawings, some hi-gloss postcards with an assortment of illustrations, and some heavy Luxe mini-prints featuring a selection of my Ancestors, Sisters, Descendants series. I’ll be sure to post whatever extra I have after the show on Etsy.
Last Thursday I made the trek up to Seattle to hang a solo exhibit of drawings and illustrations at the University Friends Meeting. They have a lovely community space in which they host 4 artists each year after selecting them through a juried selection process. Lucky me, my work is the first to be featured this year, January-March.
The room the show is in is large and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows that look over a Japanese-inspired garden. It is a truly lovely and peaceful setting and I feel grateful to have my work hung there. The Friends themselves are very kind and sound like they have a history of doing excellent social outreach within their community.
If you’d like to see the show it is best to contact them ahead of time to see what viewing times they have available. In general, during the week, there seems to be a staffer there from 9 am-noon but I think there are other times available as well.

Another piece completed in my Ancestors, Sisters, Descendants series. This is the last piece I’ll finish for a solo show I’m hanging at the University Friends Meeting on Thursday. Get your copy here.
Another crazy dream, another drawing. A woman being mauled by a purple & orange tiger while being observed by a blue angel, 2 women in bathing suits, and a pink elephant. The woman being mauled also clutches a coffee pot and though you can’t tell it’s filled with almond butter. I must have eaten something spoiled before falling asleep that night.
Another little correspondence illustration completed. I enjoyed doing this piece but have decided to only submit the first two pieces from this series to the artist call. I just don’t feel like it sits correctly with the first two pieces. Oh well, at least I can send in the other two and meet the deadline still!
This is a recent doodle in my sketchbook. After having a good aggressive cuddle with my dog and kitten I thought they’d be much better as one animal. Then, I could cuddle them as a unit instead of struggling to get them to cuddle me at the same time.
