A literary Map of Seattle

Hey everyone!
I just wanted to share this cool painting that my husband, Aaron Bagley, did for The Stranger's new literary magazine, A&P. It's an illustrated literary map of Seattle! Pick up your own copy in this week's Stranger. It's very lovely.
Here is a link to the artile as well! Check it out online!

Illustration Friday: Swamp

Hey everyone!
Here is my entry for this week's illustration Friday theme: Swamp. I loved this theme, and it fit really nicely into my creatures in the woods stuff I've been doing lately. I love the idea of a raft and a jug band, it's so simple and fun. I would hang out with this little guys.

Tea Tree Party

Here is my latest illustration that I created for my portfolio! It's two Fennec foxes having a tea party in a tree. I don't know why but I've always liked the idea of tree houses and sitting up in trees. I never really spent much time in trees, so maybe I feel like I'm missing something for not having tried it enough. In any case it seems like a lovely place for a spot of tea. I liked this image so much, I decided to use it for my latest postcard!

Illustration Friday: Shades

Hey everyone!
Here is my latest Illustration Friday entry. The topic is "Shades." I wanted to do something fun so I worked up this idea of a skunk stuck under a lampshade. Also, here is another piece that a made a little while ago when I was working on my monster series. Enjoy!

West Collection!

Hey everyone
I wanted to make a post about a competition I entered. It's an art competition to be acquired for the West Collection, a renowned art collection from artists all over the world.  Each year they take submissions to be considered to be taken into their collection of work. The prizes are that they buy your work and you are forever a part of this really awesome collection that art appreciators and critics alike get to look at. Part of this year's competition is to get people to vote on your work with this new iPhone app. So if you have an iPhone, please check out my work and vote for my pieces. You can vote for as many as you want! I'm entering in the competition sort of late in the game, but your support is still welcomed.

Here is the link:

I submitted work from my Nostalgia drawing series. Here are a couple of pieces that I entered. But please check them all out on the website!

Illustration Friday: Yield

This week's IF topic "Yield" was a little tricky. It took me a while to think of something that really struck me. But I came up with this little image of the hedgehog beekeepers collecting their bee's yield. I have a feeling that they would make great beekeepers. The bees would be just as concerned about getting stung as they would.

Illustration Friday: Intention

This weeks IF topic Intention has me thinking about the intentions we have when we are young. They may seem small, but at the time they are quite important. So I did a couple of drawings that came to mind with that theme.
