The Sketch Book

dragon eggs

some dragon eggs to celebrate the return of game of thrones this sunday.

and plus its almost easter so if you aren’t a game of thrones follower just think of these as easter eggs.

(not as the future dragon child warriors of the almighty khaleesi)

can you tell i’m a little bit obsessed?

sketching swans

another ballerina! a swan to be specific. spring time always makes me think of swan lake because that is when we’d preform it back in my ballet days.

a funny development of sketching ballerinas – it makes me have better posture. while i sit here thinking about the poses and the beautiful attention to detail that makes ballet so captivating i find myself being more aware of my own slouching and sit up straighter.

so with that, i bid you a happy weekend full of amazing posture!

zou bisou

Did you watch Mad Men on Sunday? I was worried that my favorite show was going to be rusty from its long absence but knew it was back in full force when Megan started belting out Zou Bisou Bisou. It hit just the right note between provocative and awkward to confirm for me that Mad Men is back in all its weird glory. I’m glad that she, like Betty and all the others before her, misunderstands the mysteries of Don’s illusive happiness. Is there any better television than watching a displeased, aloof Don push away beautiful women? Can’t wait for the next episode!

full bloom

New York is in full bloom right now!

I love the fact that I moved here in July after last years tree blossoming so I had no idea which trees would explode with color this spring. I was so surprised by all the trees I had not really even noticed before. They had just been waiting to come to life with beautiful blooms. Hows that for enjoying the little things, huh?

And it was even lovelier at night – kind of like how snow looks eerily beautiful after sunset. The white blossoms that are all around my neighborhood look enchanting against a midnight blue sky. I love this time of year!

Elaine + Dylan

Meet Elaine and Dylan. Aren’t they the cutest duo? Elaine blogs about her love of fashion and the funny adventures of raising Dylan and she asked me to capture these two facets of her life in an illustration.

Be sure to visit Elaine’s blog – I particularly love the Dylan related posts. He’s such a character.

Happy Weekend!
