Illustrator Exhibit

Hey Everyone
I'm busy at work on my picture book Boats For Papa, but I wanted to take a minute to mention that the Western Washington SCBWI chapter is having an illustrators exhibit at the Washington State Convention Center. There will be work for viewing by many of the talented local SCBWI illustrators, including a piece from me. The show goes up October 10th and runs through January 8th, 2014. There is going to be an opening reception on October 27th from 2-5pm. Check out the poster below for the extra details (and it's my image from the show they used on the poster-a neat surprise to me).
I hope some of you can make it!

1828 art show

Hey everyone!
It's be a month I've been off blogging. I was quite wrapped up in makin' lots of art- the best reason for not spending more time blogging! My husband Aaron and I created work for a show we had a Joe Bar in Seattle. Here is a synopsis of the show and some images of the work! The show is up until October 8th at Joe Bar ( 810 E. Roy, Seattle, WA 98102) Some if you are in town, come and check it out while you still can. Enjoy!

1828" is a collection of illustrations and comics based on the house built by Aaron's great grandfather Marvin E. Pack. Two long generations of Mormon relatives inhabited the house until Aaron's parents took over. Years of de-cluttering revealed many bizarre religious and antique occupational relics. The house invokes its own mythology by leaving a trail of such esoteric delights. Aaron and Jessixa explore the visual vocabulary inspired by this very real Salt Lake City house and expand on it's oddities through a series of comics and ephemera.
