Happy Chinese New Year! 

Is this your year? The Year of the Dog? Here is your personality if so: 

People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They are honest, friendly, faithful, loyal, smart, straightforward, venerable and have a strong sense of responsibility. On the negative side, they are likely to be self-righteous, cold, terribly stubborn, slippery, critical of others and not good at social activities.

Tedx Talk + MLB

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

It's finally out!
I was lucky to be able to do illustrations for Beauty Redefined's Tedx Talk this past month. I LOVE Lindsay + Lexie's platform, and their work is absolutely powerful. When I was a teen I always felt like I needed to be a certain way physically, and it continued throughout college where I had a bit of an eating problem. I know that body image is mental and it's hard to step outside of it and see yourself for who you are and what you are capable of. Their work will teach and change your mentality and you can love who you are. Women, we are not just bodies!
Their motto? See more, Be more.


New H17 Designs for Anthropologie

Monday, November 6, 2017

 I loved designing this woolly creature story for Anthropologie Holiday 17! They turned out really fun. You can get a combination of all or just one to add to your Christmas list. 

The tassel trees are fun decorative table accents, the unicorn and elephant are fluffy and quirky, but my favorite is probably the elephant tree topper. I made an actual sample of this guy for the vendors to copy and they did a beautiful job replicating it.

I'll be posting more ornaments I did for Anthro in a few days, but for now, enjoy these!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! 

Here are some of the latest Halloween illustrations and projects I did for The House that Lars Built. I linked the rest in the post below (did you see them all?) Maybe it's my love of the ethereal and unexplained, but I truly love this holiday. I did some candy cards, which you can download as a little poster or printable, and some candy bags, which you can also print out and use for candy gifting or trick or treating (tonight!)

My favorite Halloween was probably when my parents took me to a thrift store and I picked out a vintage dress and then my dad fashioned some wire hoops in the bottom part so it looked like a colonial hoop-skirt dress (we were living in Virginia and I was obsessed with that time period!!) Then we had a parade at school, and in the field, one of the teachers had dressed up as Death, and had a cart and was wheeling it around, until he stopped and began digging, pretending he was digging a grave. It was so spooky because we didn't know who it was and it was far enough away that it was just super creepy.

Those were good times. 


Artist Interview + HLB

Thursday, October 26, 2017

New interview about my style and process here on The House that Lars Built. I love it when Brittany asks me to collaborate with her, and this month (being my favorite holiday month) she let me do a bunch of projects for her. Here's a breakdown in case you've missed them:

I first heard of Rebecca when I was in 6th grade and it became one of my favorite thrillers, so I was excited when Brittany of The House that Lars Built asked me to illustrate it for this month's book club. Check out her page with a FREE printable of this illustration and bookmark. 
If it's a favorite of yours too, you'll want this pinned up in your house!
