We had a chance to go see Hiatus Kaiyote perform in person on May 12th at Fineline in Minneapolis. Everything about the show was great, the music is so full of life and it always leaves me feeling empowered. Nai Palm poured herself out for the show with killer vocals and genuine smiles. And she’s got great style as well, I couldn’t resist drawing a portrait. Check out the music for yourself, it’s been swingin’ in my speakers and my soul.
This is a recent portrait commission that I finished. Look familiar? He is. You guessed it, this is a childhood picture of my husband.
New Zealand rap artist, Larz Randa (Mainard Larken) is totally “hot like tiger balm.” I’ve got mad respect for Randa’s androgynous style, endless smile, funk, quirk, and sense of humor. Check out the song Rangers and prepare to be hooked.
My hubby and I recently went to see the movie Her. I really enjoyed it. It was really beautifully done. And it touched on aspects of relationships that most movies gloss over or leave out entirely. The character Theodore Twombly was absolutely love-able. And so I decided to illustrate him and share it with you.
The end of March was full of pet sketches. Today I’m finishing up the last sketch from my March special. If you’re curious, this is how my one of my completed sketches compares to the photo I was given.
It was my pleasure to capture the glint in Rowan’s friendly eyes. His parents commissioned a personal illustration of him to commemorate his first birthday. He seemed to be always on the verge of smiling, what a charmer!
This is my first commission of a child.
Beautiful little Nora was easy to draw with her thoughtful gaze, her merry cheeks, and her bright red hair.
A big thanks to her parents for letting me share this personal piece with you.
