I updated my website - I keep finding tempting new templates on WordPress; this is the zeeBizzcard Theme by ThemeZee, and as I am in the middle of a business card redesign, I thought it would be a good time to change some things around on my site. I now have social media links to your left, which will be awesome for anyone wanting to connect with me other places online. I also love being able to see the most recent blog posts on every page. It also has great…

Newest Art Challenge: Spreading The Love!
Posted By :Date :Laura | 06-23-2013
Also known as: Teaching! [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"] Though my reasons for attending grad school were many, my main goal was to eventually teach art and illustration. I am happy to say that my journey towards being a teaching artist has begun. I have classes listed at 171 Cedar Arts Center, an awesome non-profit in Corning NY that is dedicated to bringing the arts to our community. The two classes I submitted were "Creature Creation", a monster drawing class, and "Art of the Comic Book", a class that explores the…

New Portfolio Setup
Posted By :Date :Laura | 11-29-2012
So, I have decided to finally cull my portfolio. I have been listening to a lot of artist podcasts lately, (particularly Chris Oatley - heart his website so much!) and a common theme is simplifying your portfolio. Even though I love my traditional paintings and drawings, from a job hunting perspective, I can totally appreciate the sense in this tactic. I will still be posting sketching, painting and drawing, but I've decided that all work not directly relevant to getting illustration work will go into my blog as posts, and…

Promo Images
Posted By :Date :Laura | 03-29-2012
I’ve been so busy over the last month and a half! Besides traveling to Maine to visit family, I’ve been preoccupied with my first official set of mailers. And, shockingly, I’m sure, it took forever! Not just the designing aspect… no the time suck really was made up of… well actually, maybe a numbered break-down will be easier to read :) Sorry, it's going to be a long post! 1. Research on self promotion: Research on mailers mostly took a lot of time because there really isn’t a lot of…

One Day, Four Paintings
Posted By :Date :Laura | 12-07-2011
So, I had a day off from work yesterday... [gallery order="DESC" columns="2" orderby="rand"] And thought that it was high time I did some painting! These were done from photos, which is not as I prefer, but I've been spoiled by the weather in San Francisco and I need to relearn how to work in the cold NY air! I tried to do them quickly, to imitate that plein air feel, and also because I can get nitpicky and too tight with my brushwork if I give myself too much time…
