Life Drawing Funness
Posted By :Date :Laura | 03-21-2015
I got to attend a figure drawing session at 171 Cedar! I've been dying to get some life drawing into my schedule and this open session-style class will be perfect for brushing up on my life drawing skills. These aren't nearly as bad as I've been expecting since I haven't drawn from a live figure in about 4 years, (whaaat?!) but these were still the only two from the 2 hour session that I felt like posting. I'm definitely not moving as fast as I used to or as accurately,…

Open for Commissions!
Posted By :Date :Laura | 03-10-2015
Have you ever wanted an adorable drawing of one of your personal heroes? Commission a piece from me! I attended a really great smaller Comic-Con, the River Road Expo, last fall and I had such a blast! It was organized by Jared Aiosa (of Heroes your Mom Threw Out) and he and a few (unnamed) friends have been encouraging me to accept commissions for the next show coming up April 19. I have wrestled with this idea for some months now, and though I will not be taking commissions during…

So Remember Those Oil Experiments?
Posted By :Date :Laura | 09-12-2014
I have a great story to tell about that... This is officially the first painting I have sold! That would be exciting enough for me, but it actually gets better... Once upon a time, a woman brought her young granddaughter to visit The Gallery @ The ARTS Council. The woman wanted to acquire something for herself, but also (cue lovely music here) to purchase a first piece to start her granddaughter's own collection. The young girl fell in love with my little oil sketch, and now I have a warm-fuzzy generating story to tell about my…

Experiments in Oil
Posted By :Date :Laura | 09-05-2014
I have been craving oil painting lately, and to that end, I have been experimenting with creating illustrative work in oils, along side my digital painting. Here are my first two illustrative oils, they are really more like small studies, but they were surprisingly fun!

Roses for The ARTS Council
Posted By :Date :Laura | 08-29-2014
I donated this triptych for a silent auction benefitting The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes. It was held during our annual fundraiser, REcycled Runway. Keeping with the theme, I painted this work on reclaimed panel board and framed it with scrap wood scrounged from a kitchen remodel!

Finally, a new black and white piece! Who are they? Where are they going? I'm not sure, but this odd group popped into my head the moment I saw the Illustration Friday challenge this week, so they had to be drawn!

A pretty new black and white piece, inspired by Illustration Friday! I'm experimenting with different methods of shading and so far I prefer using Painter over Photoshop. I enjoyed playing with the chalk and the watercolor brushes.

New Projects!
Posted By :Date :Laura | 02-27-2014
I attended the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators this past weekend, and it was fantastic! I especially liked the Small Group Review where I had the opportunity to speak with Lily Malcom, Executive Art Director & Associate Publisher of Dial Books for Young Readers. One of my other favorite parts were the breakout sessions that occurred on Saturday. The first one I attended was called Implementing Self Promotion for Illustrators, and it was led by Laurent Lin, an Art Director at Simon and Schuster. His talk included some…

Traditional drawing
Posted By :Date :Laura | 01-24-2014
So, I have recently had a few requests to post examples of my traditional work. There's a lot of it, but I thought I would start with some of my charcoal drawings. Enjoy!         [gallery ids="587,589,584,590,588,586,585"]
