I was lucky to work on this magical book earlier this year for Running Press. Here are a few of my favorite spreads from, "The Practical Witch's Spell Book" written by Cerridwen Greenleaf and illustrated by me, Mara Penny.
Surtex is coming up May 20-22 to the Javits Center in New York!
My boy challenged me to illustrate a creature that he likes to draw. He's into monsters, sea serpents, dragons and toothy dinosaurs. Basically anything with claws and fangs.
Here you go, son. This one's for you.
I love love love a good box of vintage ornaments!
Truth: I am afraid of the ocean... Unreasonably so. Jaws is to blame.
It hasn't stopped me from loving buoys though!
I have added a few more states to my Summer State Project.
I like to challenge myself to make quick little pieces of art specifically for Instagram.
Oftentimes they're inspired by a song but it really could be anything.
I never know if I should post them to my portfolio or not since they're just a quick fun exercise.
It's like posting sketchbook pages.
What do you think? Yay or Nay to posting these fun and fast instagram pieces in my portfolio?
My mailbox is overflowing with Surtex supplies! Yay!! We'll be at Booth 543 :)
