Beautiful Book!

This is just about the prettiest book I've ever seen. I want to recommend it to every artist I know. Print & Pattern is a great blog too. You can find this book here. Seriously I don't think I've ever seen so many beautiful images displayed in one book. It's very inspiring!

I am taking an inspiration day, A much needed break from my day to day routine. Oddly enough my break is usually pretty routine, but refreshing non the less. It usually consists of a bookstore and art store visit. There is usually cup tea or a fruit juice involved, and music cranked up in the car on the way. Todays music will be Toby Mac's new cd tonight. And I'm hoping to return tomorrow with an new Illustration Friday posting. I'd love to know what your inspiration break looks like too.

I am so excited this is my first posting on Illustration Friday! I just made this illustration for my son, Zach.

Blue skies are calling...

I really wanted to challenge myself to paint this sailboat. I grew up in a family with a Dad who had an affinity for the outdoors, boating and fishing in particular. This painting made me feel much closer to my Dad, who has passed away. That is why it was such a nice thing to paint, I think little parts of my Dad call out to me occasionally, it was nice to creatively react to one of them.

I got up at 3 am to do this one. When my little guy woke up for a drink. Otherwise I don't have 3 am ambition. There would have to be a pretty great vacation planned for me to want to get up that early. Have a fun day.
