Empty Easel

I've just discovered a new favorite website via Twitter: Empty Easel. What a wealth of inspiration and helpful articles! I've got a lot of reading to do!

My current favorite I can really relate to. So many times when I tell somebody I'm an artist, I hear the "I can't draw a stick figure" line.... I try to convince them that they just have to try, learn, and practice, but they've already got it fixed in their heads that they CAN'T, so they don't even try. Now I can use the sports analogy! Woohoo!!

More playing with Yupo paper and acrylic paint

I'm having a blast! I'm stamping, pouring, spraying and just playing in general with paint and Yupo paper. I love this stuff!

More doodling at work

Digital design

So, in case you didn't know it, I also play with digital design in Adobe Illustrator. I was asked to recreate the Arkansas Capitol building in a stylized/illustrated manner for the back of a t-shirt. I saw people wearing the shirts at the office today, it was fun!
