a nice little write up on me in the Boise Weekly

Tara Morgan mentioned me in a small write up for the Boise Weekly about my show coming up at Flying M.

But come January, things will change drastically. Julia Green, local Boise State illustration student and concert poster artist, will premiere her new show "Wild Wilderness." Green already has a few sketches for the show up on her blog at, and the vibe seems to be Precious Moments meets the death of Bambi's mom. Her cartoonish illustrations of prancing acorns, regal owls and gasping trees speak to the majesty of the forest, all the while acknowledging the wild and unpredictable temperament of the natural environment. To check out either of these shows, head to Flying M Coffeehouse at 500 W. Idaho St.

Did some blind contour drawings of my boyfriend and his friend and the one in black ink was a contour drawing of me by artist and musicians, Zach Jones. The clouds will be for sale at Wild Wilderness

Wild Wilderness

I have a show coming up at Flying M in downtown Boise. I just finished making the postcards and whoa, do I feel a load off my back, but also an extra boost to get this work finished!

I used a sketchbook page for the main image, so this exact drawing won't be in the show, but characters like it will be.

haha. well, I guess you can also study for art history while you take a gander at my drawings.

great old book and illustration finds

Andy, a great illustrator and designer and new pal from Wirestone took me over to the Library! Book sale today. He scored big on a boyscout songbook that had the neatest illustration on the front with the best color pallet.

I just really loved the font and colors on these two. Very inspiring as far as design goes.

Don't be fooled- the cover is really great but the inside only had a few illustrations and none were in color.

I didn't scan the cover, but it is a Children's Classics book with all kinds of goodies. My favorites were from Wizard of Oz.

This book is all about sex. RAD.

Just a quick thing I did for Boise Rock School.

sea sketches

I am working on a fun little illustration for my first assignment in Illustration 3. I am doing a poster for a show that is supposed to happen in October at the VaC for the band The Daredevil Christopher Wright. It hasn't been officially announced yet, but I still want to do the poster. I decided to work in a style reminiscent of old children's book illustrations like Richard Scary. Or new artist like Meg Hunt. I love her work so much.

see if you can tell what my plans for the poster are.... they involve an old fisherman and sharks.

ps. I am about 5 full pages of sketchbook behind in updating this thing. Expect an update tomorrow.
