Illustration Friday Topic- Lesson

One of the first lessons as a kid that you learn is to share. This image is from Amanda and Max, Friends. (my e-book) I'm not sure if the lesson is learned here since the sharing is inadvertent.

Launch of Two Can Art

I am very happy to announce the launch of Two Can Art. This is a collaboration between myself and my son, Noah who is autistic. Noah has always loved to paint. He really enjoys the incredibly tactile experience that it gives him, and creates wonderful textures using brush, fingers, sponges and even bubbles. I have always thought they were wonderful and that it would be great to fuse his textures with design. I have been scanning his paintings into my computer and have a large group to work from. We now have a whole line of images that are entirely his textures and my design. My licensing agent, JMS Art Licensing,llc has just put the collection up on her website and she will also be showing the work at Surtex in New York in May. Here is her website link.
The images are bright and fun. They cover a range of themes from beach and animals to florals and holiday. When I show Noah the finished designs I get wide smiles back.

Illustration Friday Topic- Duet

This is an image that was actually a commission. It is oils on canvas. It is only the 2nd realistic horse painting I have done and I amazed at how beautiful these creatures are.
