New Illustration and Updates

So a while ago I came across a Reddit post about a bakery in Ayr, Scotland.  They had marvelous images of pastries and I was so inspired that I contacted them :)  I've been crazy busy, so I wasn't able to work on any pieces until recently, but here is the first one, a delicious fresh fruit tart with a vanilla pastry cream :)

Here is the link to more info on this amazing bakery La Petite Patisserie

Prints available at my Etsy shop

I'm also currently working on a coffee gateau acrylic painting on a canvas, from the same lovely bakery, here is a sneak peak:

Pottery Painting, Tea Pot

I just picked this up today!  So I haven't painted pottery since I worked at a pottery painting studio one summer in college.  I went here in Bend with an art group that I belong to.  I kinda just started to doodle on the tea pot and then my little doodle became more complicated and took more time than I anticipated.  But, super happy how it turned out :)  Something a little different than my normal stuff, more along the lines of the cobra I painted a while back.

In-process Painting: for Gut Feelings Musician Recipe Zine

So I thought that I would share an in-process pic of a piece I am creating and am really excited about!

Here is a bit about the project that the piece is for:

"Gut Feelings is a bi monthly illustrated food and culture zine. We have a different theme for every issue that loosely ties together all the articles, recipes and illustrations.

Our February issue is music themed and to accompany it we are putting together a whole zine of recipes that have been kindly contributed to us by our favourite musicians. "

They put together a kickstarter to fund this awesome project.  For a list of all the awesome bands contributing recipes and a list of the illustrators involved click here!  If you are interested in a copy, you can pledge £6 (9.86 US Dollars).

I am illustrating a recipe contributed by the band Bastille, which is crazy exciting because I'm currently obsessing over their amazingness (obligatory link to their amazingness)!!

Reddit Gets Drawn

So I'm kinda ridiculously addicted to  There is a subreddit called Reddit Gets Drawn where anyone can post photos and artists can use them as reference, and draw what people post.  So a couple times, when i've felt like sketching, I drew a couple posts.  I also linked to the original posts, in case you are interested :)

New Custom Shoes

Here are two pairs of custom shoes that I've done recently.  The Korra pair I did as a gift for my brother's girlfriend :)  She's a fan and so am I, so they were super fun to work on.  For the second pair, I was commissioned to paint a pair depicting the horse that the girl commissioning the shoes rides, named 'Jafe'.

I love painting shoes, they are so much fun!! And I love that people can wear them and show them off :)

Rising Temperature, Pepper Scale

I am super excited to share this project with you!  It took about a month, and there are around 350 peppers.  The peppers start as mild at the bottom of the painting and get spicier as you go up.
