Remember when I made reference to an illustration of a CD cover I was working on? I've finished it and I'm now happy with the results. I've left header room for the title.
I've had to place a copyright on the illustration which I've found I have to do more and more. Recently I found out that in China, someone using an online store (very similar to Ebay) illegally downloaded and posted my illustration and used it to help sell some Aerapostle jeans they had for sale. Everything on the website of course was in Chinese which didn't help and I had to log in and register to communicate with them. Easy enough if you could read their language. Now how does one go after someone who breaks US law internationally? They never asked nor had my permission to post my artwork and have clearly broken the laws of US copyright infringement. I'm disgusted to say the least. but let's not dampen the day. So please try to understand when you see that I've added copyright to my illustrations.

I headed to Parables for book browsing and grabbed one off the shelf to sketch. I haven't read it, but liked the cover so it became part of my prop along with my new handbag and leather pencil case which I carry with me at all times. I love to capture moments whenever I have the opportunity.
Today it rained and snowed simutaneously and was relatively warm (low 40's) and you needed and umbrella however by the time I left the office for home it had turned to freezing and I had to scrape the windows. I cranked up the heat and my feet have finally thawed. Not a good idea to stand in snow and ice while scraping your windows. I should have had boots on but who was to know?

While in a business meeting offsite I noticed the decorating style of the room I was in and fell in love with the wall lighting fixtures and thought they would be perfect in one of the new rooms in our home so I quickly did a sketch on the hotel's signature paper they supplied for the meeting. Don't you just love it? And I have the perfect spot for it.
Ok, so your thinking I should have been paying more attention in the meeting? I was! I actually have created some of my best illustrations while watching a movie or listening to a program or music. It's part of my multi-tasking personality. And, the CEO was watching me sketch and seemed to like the sketch too when I showed it to him.
