fly away

I have been inspired as of late. I got a job which I am really excited about. Its at an amazing indie bookstore that I've wanted to work for a very long time. It's not an art job but it is still breeding my creativity. Plus I will be around fun creative type people anyway. It will also afford me time not to forget to do my art. I am pretty happy right now.:)

The reason for this piece of work has to do mainly with the fact that at the goodwill a few days ago I purchased a globe. I also have a huge map of the world on my wall over my books. When I was younger I did tons of odd jobs for my parents so they would give me money to buy a suitcase with the map of the world on it. I love the thought of travel. I love the places I have been able to visit and I yearn to see more. I also adore the pastel sorts of colors that are on most maps and globes. Totally my color palette. Maybe thats one of the reasons I was drawn to them as a kid. But anyway I love my globe. "Be Free" is the saying on my business cards.

I just added this simple art too. I love the bunny, shes jumping for love.:)

hiatus over.

wow Its been a huge hiatus. Just to fill you in. I moved to NYC. It wasn't for me. I moved now I'm in SF again. I needed my friends and family. I am currently looking for a job...oh the joys of being out of school.

This piece came as a whole result of how I've been feeling since moving back from NYC. It was quite a big blow to think you want something so much only to realize it was not for you. I value my family and friends so much. I missed the weather..and just the general feel of sf. So needless to say I've been pouring my heart out quite a bit via phone. I did that a lot while I was in NYC. Talking to friends, family..trying to figure out what to do with myself how I should approach things.

Also two things got into the spring show. Amazing. I was so happy to find this out. "Bunny Dream" got in and my Ernest Hemmingway yays:)
