True-Blue

These are a few more photos from the shoot I did of my friend Jessica a few weeks ago. I’ve been experimenting with blending watercolor washes onto photos and I’m really liking the effect.

Jessica is really fun to work with because she’s also a photographer herself, so she knows what photographers look for while she’s modeling. Check her out on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram as luvbunnie_j, for her work.

The Attack of the Kleptoctopus

Really happy with how this piece came out. It combines my two loves, photography and illustration. My initial concept idea for this had nothing to with evil octopi trying to steal rainbow umbrellas, but that’s an upcoming blog post ๐Ÿ™‚

Big thank you to Jessica (who is great model, talented photographer, and my good friend) for putting together her gorgeous look and being a part of this project. Fighting an evil octopus and walking in heels on rocks is a lot harder than it looks!

RedBubble!

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of getting together with Martin Hosking, Laurie Briggs, and Peter Tomassi from RedBubble, along with some of the Chicago RedBubble artists. RedBubble is the main website which produces and sell my prints along with thousands of other artists.

And, they came bearing RedBubble swag with my work on it:

Currently, I don’t have any t-shirts on the site, but “Every Bone” looks great on a shirt so I may have to add the t-shirt option there soon.

RedBubble does great work on the products. In addition, their brand colors and their new RB logo naturally fit just right with Razorberries. Awesome coincidence.

After our get together, I went home feeling energized with new ideas. Or, to put it more accurately, my brain was doing the happy dance.
