New Old Watercolour Paints

Recently I had the pleasure of adopting a whole stash of art and framing supplies. I’m talking watercolour tubes, rulers, piles of paper and picture mats, frames, brushes, palette knives, easels, drawing boards, inks, pencils… you name it. It was a huge pile that filled the trunk of an SUV! + While to some it may look like a pile …

Inktober 2017

It is officially October 2nd and all the Inktober images are pouring into my Instagram feed (and I assume many an Instagram feed). Last week I told myself: “This is the year. I’m going to do it! Inktober here I come!”

Creative Compendium 19.02.17

“Ça en vaut la peine. It’s worth it.” –French Words I love that Instagram account. Happy Sunday and welcome to this week’s creative compendium. I’ve got a short selection of inspiring articles and favourites that I must share and keep track of here. Sometimes, when you have so many interests and creative ideas, it can be hard to discern your …

Creative Compendium 12.02.17

“Big things often have small beginnings.” -Freelance Wisdom Welcome back to this week’s creative compendium! I’m planted firmly on the couch as I reflect and write about this past week.

Paris 2016: Vlog + Time Lapse Painting

Creative Compendium 05.02.17

As I sit next to the window in my castle in the sky (I live really high up and it’s way more fun to imagine living in a floating castle), I’m thinking: what is this Creative Compendium? I’m sure it will evolve and this format may change but for now, it’s a time to reflect back on the week and note moments and …

Looking Back at 2016

Thoughts on Change… It’s a new year and somehow it’s nearly February! As I sit here with my computer on my lap, trying to think of something clever or useful to share about illustration and the freelance life, I find myself suddenly reflecting on the past year. This is an exercise I should have done on the turn of the …

2016: Year of Discovery

I can’t even believe it. It’s January 11: when did that happen?! Incredulity aside, I’ve decided that this is the year of discovery. Looking back on 2015, it was a year of change, not just for myself, but for my whole family. I think my personal phrase of 2015 was, “I’m confused.” Between myself and my family we experienced: losing …
