Ducks in da kitchen

I did this a few months ago for the January issue of Edible Boston----so cool to work with them, they pretty much gave me free reign to do whatever, which I 100% appreciate! And there are some pretty great recipes for how to cook duck, check it out>>>>here!

So many things are happening!

Way too many things. I am so happy that everything is going so well! First off, the children's book that I was working on last year has been published----yay! You can buy it on Amazon right here. Way cool. And then I did some stuff for an awesome farmers co-op called Organic Valley, working with a wonderful group of ladies to make this adorable children's book that will be handed out at the Food Book Fair in Brooklyn this weekend. The dancing cows made me laugh the entire time I was drawing. The one in front is seriously busting a move.

AT Journeys Magazine

AT Journeys, which is the magazine put out by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, is a really cool read. They contacted me awhile back to illustrate one of their articles for the Nov/Dec 2013 issue----Check it out! Pages 16 - 18! I love what they did with it, such a great group of people to work with. ----K

I've never been good at keeping this blog up to date, have I? I do post a lot on Instagram, though, so if anyone is into that, my handle (is that the right term??) is katieeberts. So. Lots of work being made here on my end, but I'm not allowed to post very much of it...contracts are crazy things. As things get published I'll start posting links or something here. What's on my mind right now is this children's book I've been working on for the past 6 months or so--- here is a work in progress of my soon to be favorite spread. They're aliens, P.S.

More from the sketchbook

My high school English teaching cousin Ali recommended a list of books for me to read while I'm out west, and the first I tackled was Life of Pi----I didn't really like it that much, but I came up with a cool idea for a future painting based on this quote:

It was my luck to have a few good teachers in my youth,
men and women who came into my dark head and lit a match.

Isn't that wonderful? I'm pretty sure Ali is going to be that teacher to a lot of her students. She's so great, I can't get over it. 

And then of course it's fall back in Michigan and I am BUMMING OUT that I'm missing the sunflowers!

Hotel Life

I'm slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things---using my hotel room as a studio space is less than ideal, but I'm making due over here. Below are two commissions that I just finished up, one for an adorable 1 year old boy, and the other for the most generous, happy person in the world, my friend Ellen from art school.

Sketchbook No. 2

Loving being in Nevada, and getting used to the climate and my new surroundings. Here is a doodle that I did while I was manning the front desk of my new job. Lots more to come! I'm catching up on my editorial and commission work, but sketchbook work is happening slowly but surely!
