New Cut Papert Art Sketchbooks for My Favorite Cafe in Portland

There's a cafe that I love to hang out at in Portland that tickles your senses even before you climb the steps up to its door.  The sweet tea aromas waft out all the way down the street.  That's actually how I found it---with my nose.  

Once inside, it's so warm and cozy, you don't want to leave it. Any kind of tea you can think of is found there and many that you've never yet tasted.  If this isn't enticing enough, they also have sketchbooks that you can draw and write in. Several of them that have been filled with funny, cute and profound scrawls of all kinds.  It's fun to just look at them.  

But they're filled to the brim like a the warm cups of tea that they serve you.  I wanted to give them and all their patrons a new place to draw and write, so I donated these 2 sketchbooks.  Of course, I had to make them special, so I customized them with my cut paper art.  

They were surprised when I gave these new ones to them. I'm having fun going back and seeing them slowly fill up with new drawings and writings.  Do you have a favorite coffee or tea place?  What makes it special for you?

Infographics & Design for Going Solar Power Workbooks

Recently, I had fun creating infographics and designing workbooks that explained how to go solar in the state of Washington.  Below are the workbooks for Sun Bridge Solar.  They wanted to created something easy and fun to follow to educate anyone who thought about going solar.  I learned a lot about solar from designing the workbooks and I had fun translating the process into infographics. Check them out below and let me know what you think.

Exercise Book Illustrations for "Mangeable Fitness" by Roxanne Eyler

I thought I'd share one of the projects I recently worked on and is now available to purchase.  It's an exercise book called, "Mangeable Fitness" that I created illustrations for.  I also designed and illustrated the cover.  It took a lot of time making about 30 little illustrations of women doing certain movements.  Sometimes,  I did my best work late at night with the least amount of interruptions.  I enjoyed collaborating with author Roxanne Eyler and the book designer, Melissa Jones to make this book possible.  Below are a few of the interior pages with some of my illustrations.  I think it turned out pretty well.  What do you think?

Paper Art Workshop at Exploratory Maker Space in Los Angeles

I'm not yet sure what I'm going to teach at the Exploratory in Los Angeles.  But I've been invited to create a paper art workshop in their fun maker space.  They've encouraged me to add LED's or voice chips to my paper art.  Now, doesn't that sound like a ton-o-fun?  Maybe, I'll add some LED's to a robot paper puppet like this one I made above into an animated GIF.  What do you think?  Any ideas? I'll keep you posted on what happens.

My Paper Art/Post It Art at the 2015 Post It Art Show at Giant Robot in Los Angeles

This is my 2nd year in the annual Post It Art Show at Giant Robot in Los Angeles.  My theme for this year is sea creatures with tattoos.  They are paper art on little post-it notes.  I loved the blue-green color and thought it would make great ocean water for my fish and marine animals.  Which are your favorite ones?  Mine are the paper octopus, the paper whale and the paper sea horses.
