Lilla Roger's Global Talent Search

My submission for the Lilla Roger's Global Talent Search!  The assignment involved creating a journal for Paperchase with a vintage playground theme.

At first I was a little stumped by the theme... and then I thought about the kind of journal I would want to buy and characters I would enjoy drawing.  Whats more fun then a bunch of monkeys jumping rope? I worked on this piece during the recent heat wave, which also inspired my decision to draw ice cream...  The layout was loosely based on vintage circus posters and type.  Tomorrow the top 50 will be announced... fingers crossed!

PVD Lady Summer Guide

I was thrilled to be able to team up with the lovely ladies of Providence Lady Project.  The Providence Lady Project is all about connecting, inspiring and showcasing awesome women in Providence.  I've met some really fun and creative ladies at their previous events and I became a member of the group this year!  Just in time for Summer they've put together a guide  here- "featuring over 40 local, female owned businesses and tips from members on making it the best summer in Rhode Island!"

So... heres my contribution to the guide, a map of my favorite places to eat during the Summer!  Big thanks to the PVD Lady team and especially to Sarah for putting everything together.

So if you find yourselves in Rhode Island this summer here are some places to check out and look through the guide for other fun Summer ideas.
