I think you should get a youtube so you can show us your wonderful technique!

That’s my next project, a post about technique!  I tried just taking pictures of watercoloring, but it didn’t quite work because the paint and water are pretty dynamic.  I need a buddy who can hold the camera for me while I paint.

You know what?  The illustration lovers out there need to represent on tumblr Tuesday.  Recommend me or whomever, but recommend someone to the illustrators section of the directory!  Illustrators taking over!!!

Also I know you are all totally jealous of my Photoshopping skillz.  Believe it or not, I am self-taught. :P

Look what I got in the mail today!  Cute magnets from Kaci!  (She got this print from the dGd! birthday giveaway.)  It’s hard to see from the picture, but the white part on the magnet with the hippo actually has text in it.  It looks like the backside of a page from a book.  Thanks Kaci!

“Holy priceless collection of Etruscan snoods!”

On Friday Joe, Dave, and I went to the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco.  I hoped to catch an exhibit showing works by children’s book illustrators from Caldecott to the present, but I guess it wasn’t there anymore.  Didn’t matter though; there was lots more to see:

I’ve gotten lots of questions about my watercolors recently.

Ok, actually I’ve gotten three. Thanks, wheresburger, lollymac, and softrockstar—such sweet girls!  In upcoming posts I’ll do my best to address your queries.  I have a little series of posts planned explaining the materials I use and the technique I practice.  It’s nice to know how artists make what they make.  Sharing one’s technique is such a generous act, and whenever I come across a how-to blog post by an artist I admire, I feel like I’ve been given a gift.

In the meantime, you can check my posts tagged resources for examples of some tools that I use and others that I wish I had.
