|This mock logo is for the clients who had me paint the pantry mural below, which was featured on this blog a few weeks ago. Not sure how they might like to use it, but I use mine to label baked goods I give as gifts.|

Lately, I've been doing a lot of pen and ink drawing, tinted with watercolor. The sample below is a sneak peek at some elements for one of the collages I'm working on. They're for a book I'm illustrating and co-authoring with Cat Isles, on the art of correspondence (No comments about this from my big brother Jess will be permitted to stay posted below, so don't even think of razzing me, Bro!). Since my paint work this week and next is a lot of troweled plaster and faux finishing, in the large dining room at Minnetonka Country Club, changing tools and working small in the evenings is a nice contrast. Yes, when not having fun at work, I have fun working.
