Court Street Carolers

Christmas, Hanukkah and the New Year are creeping up quickly.
This Holiday Season, I decided to paint Carolers on IF I Were A Toy store's door.

While the Carolers Carol and animals play, bad bunnies steal Snowman noses 
from all over town!

In case you've been following...
These guys did not make it into Society of Illustrators Annual Exhibition.
Sal skunk has to break the news.

I entered 3 of my Subway Series illustrations. 
My expectations were not exceptionally high. Still, it's disappointing 
to see the official rejection, as polite and professional as it was.

Oh well, it's cocktail hour ~ Cheers!

Thanksgiving 2012

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving
I am thankful for my friends and family who give 
life it's real beauty, in good times and bad,
add such humor and create true meaning.
I hope all of us have something to feel 
grateful for this year.

Ava & Coco in Paris

Today I finished painting this scene for a lovely little girl named Ava.
Here she is walking her dog, Coco down a charming street in Paris.
Every little (and big) girl's dream :)

Her patisserie is based on the beautiful iconic,
Laduree. Their macaroons are all over boards on Pinterest,
for obvious reasons.

The painting is 24" x 36" and will fit perfectly in a spot above her bed.

I tried to keep it loose and painterly and I just had to include other dogs,
a couple of birds and kitty cats :)

While looking through my own photos and reference pics online, for which there is no
shortage, I had to finally stop. Paris is so exquisitely beautiful and full of
charm, that even illustrating it for a child's room becomes a daunting task.

I hope that Ava will get to experience this wonderful city one day.
For now, I hope this painting encourages sweet dreams.

Have a swell midweek!
