I just got the issue of Creative Quarterly that my Seamonsters piece was featured in! They are in bookstores now, go check it out. For the artist readers, the magazine has managed to keep submission prices to $10 so you should totally submit!
I thought I would share some music videos that I've been obsessing over!
Florence and the Machine-Drumming Song Beautiful singer and her videos are so creative. I also loove her hair.
I think she does sexy tastefully.
Florence and the Machine-Rabbit Heart I especially love the beginning of this song.
This video is neat-reminds me of a Boris Valejo painting meeting a cheesy 80's music video.
I love the way she looks when she is contorting her body with that jacket on. Awesome!
Bat for lashes-Daniel So weird!

I was recently contacted to work on a job for American Express. The assignment was an illustration for a window decal for business windows in West Palm Beach. I can't say much else other than it was a great experience. Enjoy!
Oh and I finally put a client list on my about me section of my website if you're interested. Hope everyone is staying warm!
Here is a piece I did with a different process that my norm. It is mostly in photoshop with just a little ink drawing. Usually it is the opposite. And below this are some thoughts about the new year if you want to read...
Miss Ludella tickling her mutt, lol.
So, 2009 was a tough year for a lot of people. It seemed like everywhere I looked there was someone losing a job or someone having sicknesses or financial troubles. I learned some good stuff when I went home for Christmas this year. I was reminded of what it was like to enjoy life with two things-love and friendship. My mom has been out of a job for 8 months or so now, and her knees are going out with no insurance to fix them. But my mom is awesome-her undying joy for the people she loves always keeps her lifted. She was in pain when I visited but was so happy because I was home, and that felt so good. Also, hardly anyone had money for the week Scott and I were there, or anything to do(Port Richey is pretty lame) but I had an awesome time just enjoying the company of people I care for. That is how I want to live this year. I feel like being an adult has clouded my beliefs. Bills, money, work, making art, promoting, work-I get caught up in silly ruts of stupid thinking and forget how to enjoy life. I don't want to be like that. I want to enjoy all of it. Anyway, with that here are some of my resolutions.2010 resolutions.....
I want to:
-stop caring about the stupid details and just relax!
-take my time when I need it.
-always be thankful for what I have.
-live in the current time only and just occasionally glimpse in the future.
-appreciate those who are there for me and pay them calls and visits.
-go to more concerts.
-travel more this year.
-maintain my weight and try to eat healthy (so cliche! haha)
-find a new put-put place with Scott.
-try new stuff with art! Switch it up.
-write more stories.
-do some things I never wanted to do.
I always think how silly it is to write these down, like they should be easy to remember, but when the year gets going I can easily forget and get into a cycle of thinking that isn't what I want...I think writing it makes it real and more likely to happen. So here's to a new year that will be bright, and for those who are struggling-keep on truckin.' Thats all you can do, and it is so worth it.
