childrens museum of manhattan

For the past few months I have been working on a project for the Children's Museum of Manhattan for their Road to Reading/All the Way to K initiative.

I created a bunch of vignette illustrations for 3 activity guides/booklets (you can download them here) for parents and their little ones. It's a pretty cool program. It's all about learning things you can do with your newborn / infant / toddler / pre-schooler to get them on the path to reading. 

100 day project

The 100 day project started about 15 days and so far so good! Follow me here and view some samples below! Im doing 100 days of HAPPY! :)

Editorial illustration time! This illustration was created for this article about meditation for people who don't like to meditate. I for one do, (thanks to a bunch of awesome mamas at my daughters preschool) but I admit it is very hard to find the time. But once I find it, I find am happy and grateful for finding the time and sitting calmly for 15-20 minutes. 

This piece was originally started in gouache and scanned in. I have been playing around with gouache and recently started a project where i complete a (25 minute) gouache painting a day in a (non precious) sketchbook. It was inspired by my amazingly talented friend Jennifer Orkin Lewis. She has been doing this since January and the results are amazing. I am posting my progress on instagram - which you can follow here. I am starting with the mini goal of 30 days and once that occurs I plan to extend it longer.

Namaste and happy monday!

Meditation - the hardest part is getting started...
