I can't believe it's the holidays again. There are so many shopping options that support local artists. I am selling Christmas cards through the Crafty Wonderland retail space downtown (worth a visit, reasonably priced gifts and all local), I am also selling prints through my Etsy shop, and Society6 offers pillow cases, mugs and all kinds of good stuff. Check it out!

I am excited and delighted to have my work in the latest inflight magazine for Brussels Airlines (a subsidiary of Lufthansa). The good folks at b.there commissioned me to draw a map of a road trip from Brussels to Bruges. How fun! The magazine is always well designed and has a lot of really great illustration work. Check it out online!

I have been illustrating some card art for local fabulous realtors Darcie Alexander and Hilary Bourassa (aka PDX Green Team). They are not only great people, but they are two of the top rated real estate agents in Portland. This is work in progress for them to send out to their clients.

They Draw and Cook/They Draw and Travel has a new fun board on their Pinterest site of artist's studios. I love seeing people's work spaces! Here is a glimpse at mine. My favorite thing about it is my neighbor's garden/tropical jungle outside my window.

I am participating in the We Make bird house event for the opening night of Design Week Portland (check out WeMake's site beginning of October for photos of the other birdhouses!). Lots of super talented designers and illustrators are participating in the event (how do you compete with Laika?). I don't work on 3-D projects very much so it's been a challenge, but in a good way. I hope a bird really does live in this someday.

This may be my favorite map to date, partly because this is my very own neighborhood. My really sweet client commissioned me to create a map to be used as part of his marriage proposal. This map depicts the couple's favorite things to do in SE Portland. What a great idea! Congratulations Taylor and Ryan!
