I am so thrilled to present this mug to you!
We Belong Illustration, I decided to get some lovely mugs printed. To my satisfaction, they turned out really fantastic! I've sold quite a few so far, unsurprisingly, Portlanders are full of city pride. I'm selling them in my etsy shop, so go have a look and let me know what you think! Find them here. Who knows what I'll do next with this design. Any ideas?
I've been drawing up a storm all week. I'm working on a large custom illustration for a nice fellow who finds great importance in eating seasonally. He found my calendar and decided he wanted something special and unique. Here's a sneak peak:
I can't wait to have the whole piece finished, it's going to be quite a sight to see, I promise you that.
Here's another something new to cheer up those Winter blues.
In other news, I went adventuring yesterday to Bagby Hot Springs, just a couple hours outside of Portland. We drove the 4 wheel drive out there through some hairy terrain, hiked a mile and a half through snow and arrived at our destination ready to relax.
Check out that soaking tub! Doesn't it look divine? It was. There is nothing quite like being in a piping hot natural, mineral-y bath surrounded by snow and forest. It was the most relaxed and at peace I've been in a long time.
So then, feeling rather invigorated and inspired, when I got home I decided to paint my memory of the trip. This is what I came up with:
As usual, you can find this gem in my Society6 shop. It would make a great gift for any nature lover out there.
Okay, I'm off to bed. There are plenty more paintings to come, I've been trying to paint something new every day. Not all of them are worthy of posting, but it's been helping me explore some new ideas and different ways of using color. Can't wait to show you. Until then!
