Twenty-Oh-Nine: More Doin', Less Tryin'!

Well, had some password trouble when blogger switched over to google accounts exclusively, but that's all been resolved now. Only took 20 months. Wow... what have I been up to?
In terms of illustration, I launched my website last January. Two pieces were chosen for American Illustration 27, which was a nice recognition. My pal Alexei had some excellent work selected as well. Shameless Magazine published my first cover illustration last fall, neat!

I was recently laid off from my 9-5, so I'll be (happily) focusing more on illustration and design work in the near future. Sucks to feel the kick of the recession as it settles in, but I'm happy to have my routine shaken up! I'm working on some new things, so stay tuned for more regular posts!

On a personal note, my Grandma Helga turned a milestone 80 years old in December! She continues, through her kindness, sharp wit and no-nonsense attitude, to be an inspiration to her family. I'll leave this with a few snapshots from the past while.
