That's My Pop!

I just registered for the 2014 SCBWI New England conference.  For the first time I am putting my portfolio in the showcase.  The piece above is a new piece that I was playing around with a little collage and gouache.  My portfolio right now lacks continuity.  I have a lot of work to do!

I am in production mode.  Twelve fox pillows made from one wool jacket.  Tune in tomorrow to see them all.

finished book case

I had a successful creative Tuesday this week.  I finally made the display bookcase for our hallway.  I am trying to make reading "happen" in our house.  Don't get me wrong we read, but not as much as when the kids were little except at night.  I know I couldn't just walk by these books without picking one up.  Do you see your book on my shelf?  Comment with a hi if you do.

The top image is a "retelling" of a recent incident at our house.  The bottom one was a sketch in the margin of the page.  I am trying to capture the loose feel of the bottom one but my head gets in the way.

First day if PiBoIdMo and I thought I would start with this guy.  He lived in my yard with a few friends at the end of the summer.  I am just waiting on the light bulb to tell me what his story is.  I am looking forward to the 30 day challenge!

Trying out Etsy...again

I recently listed four of my reclaimed material birdhouses on etsy.  Go check them out.  My store is called Maggiola.  I hope to be adding some prints and some plush items soon.
