As a chronic over-thinker, a lot of my work sits idle in a folder on my desktop, never to see the light of day! Okay I'm exaggerating, as I was lucky that this photo was published amongst others in an issue of AFAR last year. But, nonetheless, I have vowed to share more often and on more platforms beyond my Instagram account, which is why I submitted this photo to Life Framer's World Travelers competition today. Fingers crossed! See the whole gallery here.
There are very few feelings that compare with seeing your artwork in print (!!!) That's why this weekend I was excited to see these three illustrations published in AFAR magazine's November/December issue. Thanks Emily and Jason!
See my initial round of drafts below.
One of those good, good weekends.
I dug up this old series, today, from my daily commute in the summer of 2008: Flushing, Queens to Manhattan on the 7 train.
In California, I found myself hypnotized by rolling hills: tones of gold most of the year, as green as that Microsoft Windows wallpaper after the rain. You know the one. On our drive East, I waved goodbye to those hills by tracing their lines, then continued to copy the desert panoramas we saw through Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
