Recipe Boxes

I'm finding more projects I've done this year, a lot of them weren't necessarily pieces of art but little crafty projects I did. Here's a recipe box I did for my cousin's Bridal shower in August. I stained the whole box a Mahogany and then used good papers to cover the sides, sanded down the edges, and then added an "aged" effect with the stain again on the corners. So far I've done 3 recipe boxes as Shower gifts and 1 Jewelery box for a friend.

If any one wants me to make one, let me know :) $18. They're really neat as a Bridal Shower gift.

My favorite from school - the "Eye Piece" !

We had to find interesting shots of various eyes and put them together. This is painted with gouache. :)

New Year's Resolution: Post more stuff on my Blog!

I gotta get on this thing! I'm making it a priority to get more content on this blog, it's lookin a little shabby... Alrighty! on to it!

This is a page from the book I'm redoing for my Aunt. It's called "The Tail of the Treble Clef Cat". Poor Treble has a long long long tail and he doesnt fit in with other people. This is his favorite fence where he sleeps... he's thinking about all the places he "didn't fit"

This is Treble's thinking tree...
I've got a couple other illustrations and sketches on this story but they're still a work in progress. These two unfortunately were damaged when my apartment flooded last spring and they're slightly warped with a little discoloring. I'm debating starting over with a different medium that's a bit quicker than gouache but I haven't decided yet.
