It took a while, but my website has now been updated with new stuff- new illustration, new toys, new products, and all kinds of fun facts if you care to read ’em.Feedback greatly appreciated! If anything is wonky, please let me know!Go ahead, go to my website now!
I have been having a lot of fun playing around digitally with my ephemera and fabric collections, sort of searching for new elements to morph into my illustrated art. I am not sure what I am searching for, but I discovered in the meantime that I REALLY like to make little houses.I guess they combine a lot of things I like in one form. I have been making them in small numbers, giving some away, and I listed a few in the etsy shop, too. All the house innards are made out of recycled cardboard, like cereal and gift boxes. The fabric roofs and bases are all made out of small scraps of fabric that I repurpose, either from old stuff or the detrius of other fabric projects. I really like the idea of making things from nothing.
Enid has an impressive theory that involves rabbits, carrots, and alternative fuel sources.The boys clearly do NOT get it.Typical.
…plush pillow things have been put into my etsy shop, Recycle Rabbit:
Aw, Roz…you shouldnta!
Very sweet of you to bestow upon me the prestigious “Make My Day” award!
As a recipient, I am now bound to pass along the award to five of the bloggerers that make MY day.
I would toss one right back on Roz’s lap if I could, but I don’t think that counts! Not sure who’s gotten them yet, but I proclaim these five as Liz favorites:
Visit these fine folks, and I am sure you’ll be hooked, too! Congratulations!
I did the art for the “make a hat” feature in January 2008’s issue of Highlights High Five:
I had to make a LOT of paper hats just to figure out the exact motions needed to get the point across- it gave me serious flashbacks to first grade!
Some of my products have shown up in some rawther nice magazines lately:
Holy cow, Cool Jewels was in Oprah’s O At Home Winter 2007 magazine!
And check out the February 2008 issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine- they featured two of my items this month:
Paradoxically, the busier I am, the more compelled I am to craft stuff. It helps me work out aesthetic issues, somehow, and gets the mind moving in another (though related) direction. Be that as it may, I have reopened my Esty shop, Recycle Rabbit!
I have some fun new things that I am working on that will end up in the shop, but for now, check out the batch of Pillowstrations!
Ooooohhhh, I wish I had a little more time, because BLANKETS and QUILTS are way up in my Top 10 Things to Draw!
But, the schoolkids need their educational illustration, and who am I to deny them?
This kitty comes from one of my dummy books, and is uncharacteristically black and white.
