Letting my mind flee to far-flung places when I illustrate is fabulously fun. Fortunately, fantastic opportunities for frittering away my free-time with fortuitous flights of artistic fancy are felicitously favorable for now. By the way, if you’ve read this far and faintly fear that my faculties are failing, be reassured. I’ve just been focused recently on words that begin with F! So, without further fuss, I invite you to feast your eyes on my F is for Frida and Other Art illustration from my Moleskine sketchbook.

That was a lot of Fs.

Funnily enough, I also turned my attention to creating illustrations around Found Objects this week, too. If you’ve subscribed to my YouTube channel, you may have seen this video already. But if not, you might like seeing how I managed to wrench one last drop of enjoyment from our Valentine bottle of champagne:

About my illustrations:

I prefer to draw freehand in ink with my vintage Carter’s fountain pen. De Atrementis Document inks work nicely with this pen. These semi-permanent inks are also perfect for my illustration style since they allow me to complement the illustrations with touches of watercolor. In my work, I always strive to convey a humorous perspective. And, focusing on people’s faces and expressions, as well as capturing movement, is pretty much the Holy Grail for me.

If you like what you see on my site, you’ll probably enjoy checking out my shop at Etsy and Society6.

      Meanwhile, I owe you a million emails. Sigh.
