Cozy book and Mary Blair

 Are you ready for the Holiday season? I am already dreaming about making Christmas and winter art. 


Cozy book original is now available in my Big Cartel shop!

inspired by Mary Blair's work in her Up and Down book.

I am learning so much through an extensive study of her work. When I first saw her personal work and book illustrations I wasn't directly aware of the amazing line work with gouache to create such stunning texture. It isn't "in your face". It's such a subtle and brilliant (deceptively simple) design work. I keep discovering more and I love incorporating some of the figure postures into my work.

This is the piece that inspired the cute girl above:

You can check out more about Mary over on a website that her nieces created to honor and celebrate Mary's incredible legacy.
