E books? Y Not?

Yes, one of my newest projects is creating e-books for Growing Spaces, LLC. We’ve designed two already and I think there will be more on the way. They’re pretty informative, and I find myself learning a lot about growing and planting my own food (I’m intrigued!) Sign up to receive them for free here, and be sure to share them with friends!!

The Store is OPEN!

Yes I’ve finally gotten around to updating my store and adding more items, including 2015 calendars! All of the artwork listed is one of a kind, so please don’t add more than one to the shopping cart (apparently they don’t have an option where I can fix that – ugh!) I’ll add more art as I can – need to get rid of this giant inventory so I can make new things! Here’s the link (think Christmas, birthdays, etc!!): http://www.duckgirlart.com/Store.html

Also, if you’re a Pinterest kind of person, I uploaded a ton of artwork there as well. http://www.pinterest.com/duckgirlart/duck-girl-art-paintings/  Start pinning!!

New paintings – hooray!

Those Cute Boys

Posted on

If you live in the Four Corners Region, you’re probably starting to ask yourself, “who are those cute boys?!” Well to answer your question, they’re my nephews Jaxon and Easton. I started designing for the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad a few months ago, and in a sample ad that I created, I used one of my pictures of the boys from when they were here and road the train (2009 I believe!). When I started to create the real ads, I was asked to use the picture “of those cute boys”. So now, they’re slowly being plastered in every guide book and magazine around. My famous nephews!

Condoms and Sea Turtles

Posted on

Sometimes I have really random but really fun requests. This poster request had me laughing…it’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s teaching people that if you use condoms, you’re helping to save the planet (by having less children. Seeing as how we have none, we realized we’re SUPER green!). Don’t believe me? Read for yourself at EndangeredSpeciesCondoms.com.

New Year = New Life (Butterflies all around)

I finally broke out the paints again! Inspired by a project for the William & Joseph Gallery, I’ve been painting butterflies. The gallery is sponsoring an auction to benefit a local women’s shelter, and asked that the artists decorate or make serving trays. I found a battered one at the local thrift store, and after much love transformed (ha ha!) it into a lovely butterfly serving tray. This spawned other ideas for butterflies, so I also painted “Butterfly Dreams” and “Time for a Snack”. All 3 paintings are en route to the gallery this week, courtesy of the lovely Miki Harder. (if you’re interested in purchasing any, please contact the William & Joseph Gallery in Santa Fe).

82 ounces!

So no one was anywhere CLOSE to guessing my question of “how many pencil shavings does it take to illustrate a children’s book?” Kelley Roberson was closest with 18.7 ounces. It came out to be a whopping 82 ounces!! And now, what to do with all those shavings? Hmm…I think I see another project…ImageImage
