Vermont Illustrators Exhibit

Next Thursday, September 4th at 6 pm will be the opening of the exhibit, Vermont Illustrators, in the Quimby Gallery at Lyndon State College. 

This has been something I have wanted to do for a number of years. I am excited to finally see it come about. I am also thrilled to exhibit my work alongside some great illustrators. They have all been wonderful to work with.

If you are in the area and can visit please do.

New Bow Tie Guy

I have found it helpful to take a break from all that is needed to do and just draw something for the pure enjoyment of drawing.

I like to add spot illustrations that relate to my classes on the syllabi. It is my fun way of branding myself and my classes. I like to see if the students get the connection between the illustration and the course and it is just fun.

For years I have had an old sketch on my Portfolio and Senior Thesis syllabi that I just didn't feel was the right fit. While feeling overwhelmed with planning for the semester and other stresses, I took a much needed break and drew this out. It had been floating around in my head for some time and needed to get to paper.

I also find drawing elephants particularly challenging. Every time I think I have them down I realize there is something new about their form. They are fascinatingly awkward and odd.
