Real Simple Family issue

Hi there,

The new special issue of Real Simple Family includes a feature on birthday parties that I styled, helped develop and made custom props for. It was really fun to work on and turned out super cute. Check it out!

Here is the online version which has some of the photos from the shoot, including the crab flag I made.

Hope you enjoy it!

fame and fortune

Someone in this family is seeking her fame and fortune and her name is Gingerlee. She was in a photo shoot for Natural Health Magazine on Monday for an article on homeopathic pet treatments and she's in another tomorrow for Everyday with Rachael Ray Magazine. I was hired to sew a dog version of an Elvis costume and they are using her as the model.

The Sparky Project

I just finished a painting for a show called 'The Sparky Project'. It's a collection of portraits and tributes to a sweet dog named Sparky. Nelson, Sparky's owner, has been collaborating with artists on 'The Sparky Project' since 2004.

Here is the painting I made of Sparky as St. Francis:

Here is my first submission to Illustration Friday, a really awesome site I happened upon a couple months ago. They present a weekly theme and the rest of us respond. This week's theme is 'tales & legends'.

Mine is based on one of my favorite Aesop's Fables about that wily Mr. Fox.

I almost forgot

Happy New Year!

john sloth jr

hello again!

It's been a while but I realized that as I haven't updated my website, there's no mention of a new project I recently finished with some friends.

Four of us got together and created a puppet band, John Sloth Jr & the Slows, and went so far as to film a holiday music video for them. Meghan Guthrie and I made the puppets, clothes, props, and sets as well as first-time puppeteering. Joe Pleiman wrote and performed the music, puppeteered and filmed. Evan Sussman puppeteered, filmed and edited our work into movie magic. It was an awesome experience for all of us, we were a perfect team. It was also our first go so we have a lot we want to improve. But check it out below and meet the band!
