What's In Maira Kalman's Bag

My final bookcover assignment for January's #matsbootcamp. We were tasked to draw what we imagined was inside a famous person's bag. I was already a huge admirer of Maira Kalman's paintings, books and other work so researching her life and creating this illustration was pure joy.

What's in my Bag

I recently started taking the Make Art That Sells illustration courses and I'm loving them. I created this illustration for the January warm up mini of what's in my bag. While traveling in Texas I've been walking the beaches most days and bring home lots of shells which inevitably end up in my bag.

In with the New!

I'm very excited to have my new website live.  Now I can focus on creating new quality illustration content.  It's great to turn over a new leaf and start fresh isn't it?  Below are three colorways of a personal piece inspired by my love for memorabilia and collections. The last colorway didn't make the cut to my website but I do like the lavender and white. What do you think? Different strokes for different folks right?
