Hey! I was fortunate enough to collaborate with my brother-in-law, Brian Aguado on an illustration to accompany an article he co-authored, which was published in this month's Nature Biomedical Engineering! And my illustration was chosen for the cover, which was pretty wonderful. To check out the article and illustrations, here's the link to view the PDF:
We're pretty excited!
I had to take a break from this one while working on a commissioned piece, but this is how it's looking now. I've been tackling some of the more detailed hair areas! Time to get back to it and get it done!
Just a special note.. When you commission an artist to do a very specific project (a portrait of your family) and agree to the price, please plan on actually purchasing the artwork. I learned a hard lesson this past year when a person commissioned some work with no real intention of buying it. I'm very flexible and easy going with customers but I do expect to be paid after I put in my time and effort to create something. I'm thankful for 99.9% of my customers who genuinely want to buy something they order. Thanks!
I love creating special portraits for people! This one was commissioned by my brother. It's of his friend and her two young daughters sitting by a waterfall. He surprised her with it today!!
Happy Cyber Monday! If you're looking for any stocking stuffer ideas online today, I have a few things that are small, cute and all $5 or less. The mini-fruit prints are 4"x4" and the gourds and bacon are the perfect size for bookmarks, but you could totally hang them up too.
I'll be showing/selling artwork, fine art prints, hand painted signs, and art prints designed for children's rooms at this show on the 27th in New Brighton! There will also be: homemade seasonings, handmade crocheted and silkscreened items, purses, books, pottery, Mary Kay, Lularoe, Jamberry Nails, handmade glass and an awesome EggRoll Truck. So for sure check it out if you're in the area! It's a great opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts from local businesses.
I'm getting ready for an artist/vendor show at the end of November in New Brighton, MN! I'm busy creating new stuff to sell at the show and will have art and prints on hand as well. More info about that soon! Happy Wednesday!
I haven't updated in a while, but I've actually been pretty busy!
After I finished my Andrew drawing, I had several commissioned portraits to work on, a digital scientific illustration, and another starry night Minneapolis painting to create! It's been a busy summer.
And I'm working on a lovely watercolor portrait of a mom with her daughters (that I'll share when it's done) and some graphic art prints that I'm making to sell. I'll share all of that with you soon!
