I recently had the pleasure of creating the illustrations for Little Bird Meets Anne Marie, the second book in this series by by Loni Hoots! This sweet children's poem features the adventures of a little red bird and his new squirrel friend. It is now available on Amazon.
I wanted to share a couple of photos from the past two art exhibits at Pieces: The St. Louis Board Game Bar! They hosted a fun dog-themed art exhibit through the month of September, and are now hosting a cat-themed art exhibit this month. You can find a few of my illustrations for sale, along with some other beautiful artwork! Proceeds from the art sales benefit Tenth Life Cat Rescue.
Check out Pieces for a huge selection of board games you can play while you drink and eat. I highly recommend their yummy vegetarian options, including the rice bowls and cookies.
Here are a few of my illustrations that were on display at SOHA Studio and Gallery's annual Holiday Gift Show this past December. I always enjoy visiting this show, and usually come away with several new treasures. This year was no different - I found a beautiful glass ornament and fun illustrated card to take home! December's show featured a collection of wearables, ornaments, housewares, and art by over sixty St. Louis makers. Thank you to those of you who supported St. Louis artists!
For month of July, I will be sketching jungle and rainforest critters! You can follow along on my Facebook page, Twitter, and this blog. In addition to the handful of jungle illustrations I've done in the past, I will be sharing some new ink and watercolor sketches. Eventually, all of these critters will be appearing in a new jungle and rainforest themed coloring book!
I'm currently working on some new illustrations featuring cute critters with a fantasy feel. View four of the new critters below. I'm aiming to have these available starting in June!
Coming soon...a new Unicorn & Pony Coloring Book! This was a comissioned project that I enjoyed working on. I am adding the finishing touches on this project and it will be released shortly.
Update: find the Unicorn & Pony Coloring Book in our shop!
Can I send you an email to give you the first look at new critter illustrations? Join my email list to receive updates about my art and shop, The Inky Octopus.
I'm an illustrator with an affinity for octopi. I love using watercolor and ink, and really enjoy working with the book form. View some of my story books, coloring books, and critter illustrations in my shop. Also, visit my Facebook page & Instagram feed.
