Maggie in love with the world

It's safe now to post this commission I finished a few weeks ago, which was a lot of fun. I'm starting to feel looser and looser with composition and painting. This is called "The Flying Object" or "Maggie in love with the world"

bits and pieces

So I can't wait to share the most recent commission I've been working on this past week, but unfortunately it is still in the top secret stage. Until then, I will share some snippets of my color/texture planning for my final manuscript illustrations. I've been fooling around with patterns and printing them using a lithographic process which yields a somewhat inconsistent product.

The inconsistency can be a wonderful thing and also a very annoying thing. So for now, I'm just playing at peicing together my favorite parts.

More on this in the coming weeks...for now I'll leave you with some photos from Christopher's garden:
