100 Day Challenge-Second 25 days

100 day challenge-First 25 days

Turns out I am better at daily challenges as opposed to weekly or monthly challenges (Less ability to justify missing a post, done is better than none). For this challenge I decided to focus on linoleum carving. There were a few days were I painted instead, those were days where I was traveling or ran out of linoleum. These are the instagram posts from the first 25 days

52 Week Art Challenge Update

Begining in April, my design and illustration commitments became such that keeping up with the challenge became impossible. Between April and Now (Mid-October) I have had 6 designs picked up by felt app.com, had 1 design place as an editor’s pick on Minted.com,  and made my first Spoonflower sale. I will be adding all of these images to my portfolio later this weekend.

In addition, this pattern made it to the 2nd round of voting for the Spoonflower/Headbands of Hope challenge. The challenge was to design a pattern with a celestial theme. While I did not make it to the top 5, this was the first time I made it through to the 2nd round so in my book, that is a huge leap forward.

52 Week Art Challenge/March 2016-Birds

Love using animals as subject matter so this month’s theme has been my favorite to date. Continuing with the goal of working in a quicker, looser manner. Ignored my own advice with “Springtime” as I created that pattern digitally, in Adobe Illustrator.

52 Week Art Challenge/February 2016-Houses

In the spirit of creating these images quickly, I am showing a preference for working in watercolor, colored pencil and ink. I do want to create a few mixed media pieces using collage, those will have to wait until later in the year. Right now I am very busy creating larger images for several simultaneous Minted art challenges.
