    Painting with gouache

    I started painting with gouache recently. I’ve been thinking ahead (way ahead) and figured I can’t (and don’t want to) do digital art forever, especially in my old age (LOL). I’ve been an avid computer user since I was around 14, when I first started playing with Photoshop (starting with Photoshop version 4.5). I’m not at all ashamed to say I am quite the champion when it comes to staying in front of the computer for hours on end. It’s probably why my eyesight is so bad. Digital gets tiring though, and all those hours spent in front of the computer takes its toll on me. Sometimes I just want…

    Pusspins stickers on InstaSize

    I was approached earlier this year by the guys at Munkee Apps to design a sticker pack for InstaSize, an app that lets you fit your photos on Instagram without cropping (among other things). I’ve never heard of InstaSize up until that point, but apparently it’s a very popular app across the iOS and Android platforms and I do notice my Instagram friends using it. InstaSize not only lets you fit photos; it can collage, add labels, filters, and backgrounds to your images as well. I was using 4 or 5 other apps to do these things prior to learning about InstaSize, so it was a relief to ditch the…

    It’s Caturday! Whee! [pinit]   Forgive the lack of posts– I’ve got lots of new work to show but no permission to share them yet 😛 This will have to do in the meantime! This is my shortest blog entry ever.

I myself don’t like the extra step of clicking on the blog link in the menu bar above just to get to the recent entries. However, if I were to send my website link to an art director for her to check out my portfolio, my work is what I’d like to be seen first and foremost, not my blog. “So what about me, your average reader?” you complain. “Do I really have to make an…

    I’ve been busy with several client projects, none of which I can show yet since they’re either under NDA or still in production, but I can show you some personal work 🙂 This started out as an entry to Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search contest where the winner gets two years of representation from Lilla Rogers Studio. I’m ineligible to enter as I already have agency representation but I liked the contest brief and thought I would work on it anyway, for fun and to possibly add to my portfolio. I’m not at liberty to share the exact details of the contest brief but I am allowed to say that…
