13x19 Gouache and glitter on Arches watercolor paper
I chose Tinkerbell because I'm a big fan of how cute and sassy she is. With the "Pop" theme I decided to go very minimal with the color and keep it bright and saturated with a touch a pixie dust!
"Down The Rabbit Hole"
13x19 Gouache on Arches watercolor paper and mat board
In the film I love when Alice is falling down the rabbit hole discovering all the floating objects around her. In the beginning,figuring out this piece was slightly complicated for me because of all the black and white together. It would be challenging to paint black and white objects on top of the black and white background while having everything pop out still. After seeing my initial sketch, my very creative boyfriend Juan suggested that I do the red roses border raised off the paper on mat board, everything painted separately and tacked down on foam core to create the floating look. That is exactly what I ended up doing and it turned out really fun!
These are my other two pieces for WonderGround this month! It's been a great experience creating these pieces and pushing myself to work in a larger scale. I am very excited to see them framed and up in the gallery next week. :) Happy Thursday!

I've been prepping for WonderCon all weekend and am very excited for the convention next week from Friday-Sunday! I will be at Small Press 23 with prints and mini originals. I will also be doing a limited number of commissions so if you'd like one or just want to visit, please stop by!
Here is a little sketch to break up my work for today. I found an awesome image online which inspired this sultry gal.
"Wicked" and "For Good"-4x6 Gouache and glitter on watercolor paper
I was recently in a Wizard Of OZ tribute show at Gallery Nucleus. I decided to do portraits of Glinda and Elphaba from Wicked because I just saw the play and loved it so much. The characters are fascinating and both were extremely fun to work on.

This was my setup at at the WonderGround Gallery Saturday and Sunday. Being that it's only been open since June 2012 I hadn't been there prior to this weekend and it sure is an awesome gallery! There was so much great, unique artwork I wanted to take home with me and I am definitely looking forward to going back to see what they have in store in the future.
I had the most wonderful time this weekend and met so many enthusiastic people while I was there so thank you to those who came in to meet me! :)

I'm really happy and excited to share the game I have been working on for the past several months now...Mermaid World! The video above was put together by our talented Brandon Jones who still remembers After Effects! ;) Seriously it's been a dream come true to design one of the magical creatures I love most. I was very fortunate to be given practically full freedom to create the look and style of the mermaids and I had so much fun doing it!
Below are just a few of designs and their final renders. The beautiful renders were done by the talented Barlow Gilmore, Emery Miller, George, Rodgers, Katherine Waddell, Lain Yee, Peter Emmerich, and Ryan Hungerford . Katherine also did all the mermaid animations for the game and they are just so wonderful. We are rolling out a ton of new features in the next few weeks so if you love mermaids and a mysterious story..definitely check it out! :)
Whoo-hoo this is my 100th blog post. Out of 4 years I prob should have more than that but yay!!! Aside from all this mermaid madness I have other cool news to share. I will be at Disney's Wonderground Gallery this weekend as part of the Artisan Showcase they have there. I'll be at the gallery Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 and will have select prints with me and a bunch of new mini originals. If you are in the LA area and specifically Downtown Disney-come on by! :)

Hello and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season with a great new year to come. Here are a few mistletoe fairies I painted in December. These started off as tests for some Christmas cards I want to make this year. :)
More updates soon-work has been very exciting and I'll do another post about the stuff I've been up to this week so stay tuned. :D
I've also started a 365 day photo project which is going to keep me very busy but will help track my days this year as I embark on some challenging and fun new projects.
