Illustration for The Illness

Here is an image I did for a poster for my buddy Josh's band The Illness.
The background is comprised of pieces of fabric that I cut and sewed together, and then stretched onto stretcher bars to make a canvas. I then used Sculpy clay to make the baby doll (using glass doll eyes & false eyelashes). I painted the doll with acrylic paint, and then sewed it onto the canvas with embroidery thread.


Illness Poster Progress

Here are some photos of the progress I made while working on a poster for my buddy Josh's band The Illness.

Quick birthday card

Here is a quick birthday card I made for my mother-in-law....It says "Stay Tuned" because all of us "kids" (her sons & their ladies) are sending her gift a bit late this year....

Brownstones to Red Dirt Postcard

Here is a postcard i made for an online art benefit auction called Brownstones to Red Dirt about a pen pal program between a group of at-risk sixth graders living in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and orphans from the war living in Freetown, Sierra Leone. It is mixed media of paper, fabric, prisma colors & acrylic paint. There are a bunch of AMAZING artists involved in this auction, so I encourage everyone to check it out:

And here is a link to a documentary & more information about the cause:

Fun with Felt

More mommy-related artwork ;) These are some felt puppets I made for/with my kids. I actually made the Sesame Street puppets last February (almost a year ago!) as favors for my son Dax's birthday party. I just did some reductive drawings of the characters for those, cut 'em out, and bam--puppets.
The creatures on the top are some "silly monsters" I made over the last couple days with my son Dax and his friend Cadence. We made them because Dax was misbehaving, so I took away his t.v. privileges for the day. So what do you do when there's no shows to watch? You make silly monsters!

Here is Xander as the X-men's Gambit. I made everything but the trench coat & gloves on this one. He totally fits the part too! A total super hero kind-of guy if i ever saw one! This costume is basically one solid garment as opposed to the Wolverine costume that I designed in 3 pieces: hoodie/pants/"underwear".


If there's one thing my little guy is a natural at, it's being a super hero. For Halloween he picked the X-men's Wolverine.Here is a very rough sketch i did before making the costume to help me figure out how to construct it. I do more planning in my head than I put on paper though. Below the sketch is an action shot of my lil' guy. He rocks.

Gambit & Wolverine Costumes

Alright, alright. Again it's been too long since I've posted. but with my 5-month-old finally down for a nap, and my 2.5 year old occupied for the moment, I can take a minute to finally sit at the computer! Here are a couple of Halloween costumes I made this year for my boys. Gambit and Wolverine. And although they're existing characters, I did draft the patterns, and figure out the costume construction all on my own ;)

So, for the time being, most of my creative endeavors are "mommy"-related, but I'll be working on other stuff to post hopefully sooner than later.

More Lil' Sister

Here are some more concepts of Little Sister that I did for 2K Games' Bioshock 2. I know it's been a while again since I posted, but I just had my baby girl less than 2 months ago, and am still getting back into the swing of things.

Here is a link to a figurine that Neca made from my Little Sister concept among others (some are from my husband's designs):

Hopefully I will post more stuff soon!

"Little Sister, don't you do what your big sister does..."

Well, it's been about a year-and-a-half since I've posted! It's not for lack of creating and doing artwork though. It's more like I'm a full time mom to an active toddler (spawn of Colin Fix, I mean, c'mon!), and I've been working part time for 2K games as well. Not to mention we're expecting a baby girl next month, so things have been a bit hectic to do much uploading of images.

But here's a design I did of Little Sister for 2K Games' Bioshock 2. Hopefully, I'll be able to post more stuff soon.

Apricot Tree

This is a little painting I did for a Maverix Studios Holiday Auction that's coming up on December 2nd .

The tree and the border are black fabric that I've sewn onto the piece, and on the back I put a poem that I wrote (that is really a song) that I sing to my little baby. It goes like this:

It's just you and me
underneath the apricot tree

On a summers day
How much sweeter can life be?

The grass in our toes
the breeze is blowing through the leaves

It's just you and me
underneath the apricot tree, one of these days, I'll quit it with all the baby themed art.....but for now, I am totally immersed in it.

Baby Dragon

Yes, it's been forever since I've posted, but it's not for lack of creating stuff ;). I've been doing quite a bit of designing/sewing these past months. I made this baby dragon costume for my 8-month old for halloween. I first sketched it out, and then re-drew it in illustrator for accuracy of proportions/sizing.

Six Weeks

Well, it's been six weeks since this little guy was born. Although I've scarcely had time to do anything but take care of this angel 24/7, I promise, my next post will be artwork.

Walk the Plank

This piece was inspired by my 5 year-old step son....just a little peek inside the imagination of a child.

Tuesday, January 09, 2007


I haven't posted for quite a while, so I thought it was time to get back in the game! I've been growing a baby these past 7-8 months, and I must say all those new hormones, and body changes do tend to scatter a girl's brain. I haven't quite been myself, and my creativity and artisitic productivity have suffered for it.
I painted this character sketch for fun after catching up on the latest of my favorite books...Yes, I admit it, I am a huge Harry Potter nerd.
Hopefully my next post will happen much sooner than later.....

Careful...this little guy will kick your ass!

This is a portrait I painted of Jigoro Kano for the children's book I'm illustrating. He invented Judo by modifying Jiu Jitsu, and was a kick-ass go-getter.

A page from "Kano"

Okay, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post this yet......but here goes. I haven't posted anything in a while because I've been busy with my current job (illustrating this kid's book about the founder of judo), and planning my honeymoon to Italy.... That's right, I said honeymoon. I know we've been married almost 2 years already, but since this is our first trip alone together is our honeymoon.
And about this illustration.....the story is set in the mid-1800's in Japan. Here, the hero of the story , Jigoro Kano, is 11 years old. He is walking down a busy street of a Japan newly open to foreign lands. To the left of the image, we see examples of older, traditional japanese culture, and to the right, a bit of the western world creeps in.
