I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas holiday. I was busy working on a very exciting project that I can't reveal for a bit. I will share as soon as things are a little further along. Consequently, I was drawing all weekend. I can't wait to share!
In other news, my Pandora's Oculus greeting cards were featured on MyShoppingConnection with some other very attractive cards. Don't forget to thank all those people for their generosity this holiday season with the perfect card!
And speaking of shopping, I stumbled upon a wonderful site the other day that combines beautiful design with art. Their blog is great, they have a magazine that looks wonderful and a retail store. Uppercase Gallery has some wonderful products and I love their tagline: A Magazine for the Creative and Curious... aren't we all a little of that? Below are two of my faves; a book of William Shatner portraits by famous artists and illustrators and an Eclectonotebook. Stop by and take a peek!
Talk about an amazing illustrator; Ron Lewhorn's work combines clean vector portraiture with dynamic backgrounds and a vintage/aged patina to create a look that's both fresh and worn. I love his work. Below, are a Birthday poster and a portrait of Johnny Cash. Great stuff!
Let's wrap up with a show review, shall we? I'm sure you've all heard of the show Mad Men. It's pretty much blown it out of the water since it aired. But, if you haven't seen it yet, let me make a personal recommendation to check it out. The characters, the clothing, the glamour (not to mention the sexism, the constant drinking/smoking, and the stereotypical male/female roles), make this show by turns, fascinating, frustrating and addictive. There are so many unintentionally funny moments, it's worth your while to take a gander. If you're a fan already, let me know what you think!
See you next year!
Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
