Hello, is this thing on?

I haven’t updated this blog in a year and I think it’s about time I started up again.  I have some big life changes coming up and it would be neat to keep a record of it somewhere.  

Here’s a quick recap of this past year:

- I got domestically partnered!  My guy and I went to City Hall one day in November, signed some paperwork, paid a small fee, and sealed it with a kiss.  Hooray!

- ran the NYC Marathon.  I had a really great race and because of good training and steady pacing, I was able to really enjoy myself this year!

- I competed in a Ragnar Race.  My team and I covered about 200 miles in Cape Cod.  Running a Ragnar Race was harder for me than a marathon, but I really enjoyed meeting new people and seeing new sites.  Running alone at night with only a headlamp to guide my way was something I will never forget.  And the toilets.  

- Did a bunch of traveling.  

- saw my older sister get married!

- worked hard and saw a bunch of big projects come to fruition with stellar reviews (including this big one

So for the few of you who read this (hello Mom and Dad) I hope you’re excited that I’m back!

image After much delay, the Society of Illustrators’ 54th Annual of American Illustration has reached the US and is now available in our Museum Shop and online. We wish the delay in receiving Illustrators 54 was a simple printing error or even a problem in customs, but the story goes deeper.

So this happened on a project I’ve been working on…..

During the month of February a group of illustrators and myself will be creating an illustration per day on the theme of love.  

I am really quite excited to be part of this and am hoping it will break my 5-year hiatus from art.  Working at the Society is great, but it really puts pressure on me to create good art when I’m surrounding by such talented colleagues.  I think sharing this art on a blog with people I admire so much will force me to follow through with it.  It will be interesting to see if my confidence builds in 28 days.

You can check out my first illustration on the Month of Love blog! 

Many thanks to Kristina Carroll for organizing this and to Jeanine Henderson for creating this awesome header! 

Tried to post this over the weekend but failed.  I was, and still am, obsessed with horses, so when I saw Django this weekend I knew immediately why Tarantino had Django pick the palomino in that one scene, and then there was the thing at the end.
