A family in Alameda, CA

Another color sketch for a work in progress. I did a couple of variations, but in the end felt version 2 was too complicated.

Family portrait: Bountiful, Utah

I enjoy doing these family portraits. This one is a throwback to the childhood of the Mabey girls, and is a gift for their mom. Thanks to Emily and her sisters for being such great collaborators.

Goats on the green

Another design challenge on Spoonflower. I can't stop making these patterns! This challenge stipulated a specific color palette, which was interesting, and of course, goats! I continue with the theme of animals playing ball. By the way, I'm excited that my last entry for the baseball theme managed to squeeze into the top ten. Yay!

This week's Spoonflower challenge: baseball

I had fun playing around with these iconic images. I've only been to one major league ball game in my life (Yankees when I lived in NYC) but I do love old baseball movies and playing for fun! You can see all the designs here.

Yummy fat

Here are a couple of images I did for Vegetarian Times for an article on fat myths. I did a couple of different versions and they went with the cake.

What's in your bag?

Yet another pattern for yet another Spoonflower contest. I decided to leave out all reference to lint because, well, it's just gross.

Hey, what's in your bag?

Winter and summer

I'm rather fond of pink and coral lately. This week I continue working on Holiday 2015 stuff as well as continuing my pattern design quest, so what we get is snowdrifts and lemonade.

Christmas in June

I mentioned earlier that I was going to try to get some Christmas cards done early this year, and so here are a couple more. The snowball fight is adapted from an earlier sketchbook, found here. Happy Holidays! Stay tuned for more...
