Girls: Fact + Fiction

Lucy Ricardo

I was really fortunate to participate in the Light Grey Art Lab's recent "Girls: Fact + Fiction" art show.  Curated by Light Grey Art Lab's Lindsay Nohl, Francesca Buchko, Chris Hajny and Jenny Bookler the exhibition will feature women from history, literature, film, music, culture, politics, etc.  The gallery will be divided into two collections, Fact and Fiction.  The opening reception is December 7th from 7-10pm, and they've also made the collection into a book!    Hope you all check it out and maybe order a print or two... maybe from one of these friendly people Janna Morton, Julianna Brion, and Mika Nakano.

You're Gonna Get Some Walk-Ons!

In celebration of the return of Arrested Development, Netflix and the good ole' people from Arrested Development are holding a little contest to win a walk-on role in the show!  So a few of us greeting card people put together a little line of cards to profess our love of the show.  You can download/print them out here.  Enjoy!

Outdoor fun

Here are a couple of illustrations I did for an article in Spider Magazine.  The illustrations will correspond with instructions to play a game called Cherokee Marbles.  It's basically an outdoor version of ski ball or bocce ball without the jack.  Thanks for the fun assignment AD Sue Beck!

I was also recently interviewed by the design blog, the jollybureau.  Check their charming work as well as interviews and inspiration from other working illustrators/designers.

Prince Pelops and the Olympic Games

Here are a few select panels from a 4-page comic I illustrated for Muse magazine.  It was a fun assignment that told the mythological origin of the Olympic Games. 

Thanks AD John Sandford!

Just Wink

During my internship this summer, I did some work for a brand new line of cards for American Greetings called called Just Wink.  Written by the talented and funny Alyssa Eckles, this lumberjack birthday card can be found in a store near you :)

In Like a Lion, Out Like A Lamb

March has been kind of a crazy month for me this year.   I got a new job at American Greetings as a full-time illustrator.  I also moved out of my furnished apartment on the west side of a Cleveland to an unfurnished apartment on the east side.  So, this month has been an ongoing quest to find furniture in Cleveland (it's true what they say in 30 Rock, Cleveland does not have an IKEA!) as well as settling into my new job.  

I'm going to try and be better about posting regularly... 

And, here is a piece I did for Ladybug magazine...  Can you spot the differences?  :)
Thanks AD Sue Beck!

The Ocean's Invisible Crowd

I just finished up a very fun assignment for Muse magazine.  The article describes the different  microscopic organisms that inhabit our oceans.  I was asked to illustrate a bunch of cartoonish organisms floating around the photos and bodies of text.  Here are the little characters placed so there is space for the article and photos. 

Thanks to AD John Sandford for the fun assignment!

The giraffes are insincere.

It's been a while....

I wanted to play around with the same design in two different mediums, so I used the Simon & Garfunkel song, At the Zoo, as inspiration :).  The top is digital and the bottom is a mix of collage and gouache.
