Anthology Mag & Art Show Summer Time!

I am just so pumped right now. Also I just drank a lot of coffee. I got my copy of the newest issue of Anthology Mag yesterday, of which I am a contributor. !!!! There are so many talented people working on this magazine, and I am so flattered to be a part of it.
I'm also very excited to be in my first art fair of the summer this weekend----The Chelsea Invitational Craft Fair---I have a feeling it's going to be so much fun. And ahhhhh!!! they included my art on the front page of their website now I'm even more excited why is everyone being so nice to me??? My mom is coming with me, which is THE BEST THING EVER IN THE WORLD. I can't wait. Come see us if you're in the neighborhood! It's at the Chelsea Fairgrounds, and while I'm not entirely sure where that is, I will definitely Google map that before leaving to set up on Friday, as should you.

Below are some things----one of my pages in Anthology, and then some butterflies and flowers---I actually am going to turn them into a fabric pattern that you can order on Spoonflower.com! I'll post a link as soon as that's ready. Cool! Great! I have to go mat and frame a lot of art, so later gators!

Super geeked

I just created a facebook page for my art, and I'm super pumped that 171 people have liked it. I know that in the facebook world, 171 is...not a lot. Minuscule, actually. But I'm geeked about it anyway! I feel so popular! Here's the link, right here!, if anyone wants to check it out and....oh, I don't know....like it. Or whatever.

My mom has the coolest shop in the world, Woolderness, a fiber arts studio that teaches spinning (the wheel, not the bike, DUH), weaving, needle felting, twining, and lots of other really great fiber-y things. There's also a bunny who lives there (THE MOST ADORABLE CREATURE IN THE WORLD WHY HAVE I NOT MADE ART ABOUT HER YET???), and my line of greeting cards. Check it out, I made some new designs----

Being Productive Feels Awesome

I'm so glad that my show is happening at The DAAC. I have been 12 times as productive as usual---such a good feeling! Also motivating me is my incredibly talented roommate Lucy Engelman. Some of the stuff she pops out blows my mind--I'm such a lucky duck to be working in the same studio with her!

Some good things have been happening:

Some of my illos are in My Table magazine, out of Houston! The article is Bees in the City, and I did a full page spread of Texas wildflowers...omg I loved doing it so much--flowers flowers flowers please and thank you.

I've done some stuff for Amelia's magazine: a review of this band called TOY, and an article about Easter. Amelia's is kind of the coolest.

And then I've already posted about The Pen Pals here---some of my good illustrator friends from art school who formed a collective. Love them. Last week's theme was Treehouse (which was such a good one!!!), and this week's is Mess. I'm already halfway done with it, and am really pumped to post it.

Here is a dog and a treehouse---
