Aepyceros Melampus

Here's the study I mentioned yesterday. We wanted to drop some science so we decided to add the Latin names to the design. It added a fun educational vibe for us and hopefully for whoever buys these. Unless they are geniuses :)


WIP-Tigersheep Alphabet Cards

Hello! Hope all is well on the interwebs. A while back Colin and I decided we wanted to create a set of alphabet cards. It's just too appealing of a project for 2 illustrators who love character design and also have an almost equal passion for typography. Here is WIP of an impala. I just wanted to share the overall style of what some of them are going to look like. I'm excited about adding more line work for texture and of course some cool hand lettering. One of my favorite things about doing this project is the studies I get to do of the animal in my sketchbook. And also getting to learn cool things about the animals. ANIMALS ARE AMAZING!!!!! I'm going to post some of my process sketches and studies later possibly tonight.


Crumpets and UN-Strumpets

Wow. I'm eating crumpets from Trader Joes for the first time and they are blowing my mind. It's hard to impress someone that loves a morning cup of joe and something bread-y but still. They are DELISH! On another note, I wanted to share some sketches I did of some lovely ladies at Dr. Sketchy's. And for the record just because they like to pose half naked and shake their little booby tassles doesn't make them strumpets...:)

Here's a few shots of our artwork. Enjoy!

Winston Butterlove

He's a guy on the move and he knows what he wants in life...
Winston is his name and enjoying life is his game.
He loves fluffernutters although he dislikes when fluff gets in his stache.
And he's a fan of river dancing and early Rod Stewart.


The Return of the Sketchy Gents

I did this doodle awhile back and wanted to go back in and add some color. I liked the roughness of them so I didn't want to over do it either. I ended up making an anniversary card with the shifty blokes for my hubs (bf at the time). He thought they were purdy cool. Yay! Swooned with a doodle. My kinda guy :)


Holla!..market 2011

I mean, Hallmarket....Here's a little warm up piece that I just finished. It will be for our Petit Reve booth. Colin and I are also doing some collaborative pieces under the name of Tigersheep for Hallmarket as well. Lots to do but we have some time....


Walshy-fied :)

Sarah A. Walsh, a married lady with a new name who has been neglecting her blog. So, in an attempt to be more of a regular blogger I'm starting by sharing some pics and artwork Colin and I did for our big day. We worked our little artsy fartsy butts off creating our invite package, wedding favors, terrariums, cake toppers, you name it...and it was our first collaborative effort! As far as the event, it went off without a hitch and felt more special than we could've ever dared to dream of, thanks to our friends and family, especially the "Ukes of Love". Special thanks to my amazing daughter, our helpful wedding party, beloved friend Padre Pete, Dierdre Hanlon Jones, our amazing photographer and last but not least my mom-in law, Sandy, for hand making our bouquets!


Paper Mache

This was so fun but a lot of hard work. A bunch of us did one and I totally want to do another one
soon so I don't forget. And I don't LOVE chicken wire :p Thanks for organizing this Matt! Here's a couple links to some more! Stuart's blog and sam's blog


Another red head

What it is about them? Red heads are known to be feisty. This one is anyway. She's thinking about the the next batch of trouble she's going to get into. Also, the color red is such a cheery sight in the dead of February-the long part of winter. Boo....But Valentine's day is right around the corner. Yay, more red! I've been wanting to experiment with paper, texture and collage as well. I'm just warming up!



Been so long. I'm feeling a bit stuck in neutral but I know I'm not alone. When it's 10 degrees out there the couch is a girl's best friend :) Any-who, here's a little gouache study from Doc sketchy's.
