I've recently signed with a licensing agency and have been creating all kinds of work for the gift and home decor industries. It's fun to flex a different creative muscle and create images (shown comped here) for things like journals, notebooks, wall art, textiles, etc. It's a lot of fun. I've been working with a very sharp, energetic creative director who has the best sense of what manufacturers are seeking, what sells, color trends, thematic trends, and so on. I haven't made a formal announcement as I am waiting for their new website to be up. My work was shown both at Surtex and the Licensing Expo in Vegas this spring. (photos coming) I've always had pretty solid career goals, so this is something I really hope takes off. I would love to have a line of dishes, stationery and home decor products.
I've been trying to paint more lately. Been spending way too much time creating on the computer and there is something about warmer weather that makes me want to return to painting in watercolor and gouache. Here's a page from this morning's sketchbook. I'd like to create more work for stationery and greeting cards.
