This is my very first artist trading card that I made for the ripple project. A small sketch donation to help the animal victims of the oil spill. I hope to make more. This is such a feel good project to get involved in. I feel honored to participate.

Inspiration in Chicago

I went to the Old Town Art Fair this weekend. It did not disappoint, but the rain did. It started to downpour as soon as we got there. All the artist's closed their tents. And we had to wait it out. It was worth the wait because the artist's that participate in this art fair are amazing. It's only my second year attending, but both years the quality of work blew me away. You should check it out next year if you get a chance. Then we were off to the Printers Row Lit Fest. where there are always treasure to be found. My favorite find was this children's book Tess's Tree Illustrated by one of my favorite illustrators Peter H. Reynolds. So all and all it was a very inspiring weekend and I hope to do some artwork this week while I'm still riding the wave of inspiration. I'll post it when I do. Have a great week. Happy Monday.

Macys Fashion Director

Macys Fashion Director: "

Since I've been laid off from my graphic design job this Macy's fashion challenge has gotten me back into my love of colors and layouts. I am so thankful for that. It is so fun to put things together. This is my outfit for the month of June. The challenge is: Surprise! Your being whisked away for the weekend-what will you throw in your bag? My layout is ranked 15th so far. Give it a try and see if you like doing it as much as I do!
