Lake Superior: Freshwater Lake Series

The next in my illustrated Freshwater Lake Map Series is Lake Superior which is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area! It has some very interestingly named islands – Pie Island is my favorite (wouldn’t it be amazing if it was full of bakeries that specialized in the most amazing pies? Yum!) In addition to hand-lettering all the interesting names of places it consisted of, I couldn’t help but include small hints of the flora that grow around the Lake 🙂

Surtex 2015 – Brand New Work Preview!

I’m excited to announce my work will be debuting at Surtex this year where I’ll be represented by Cultivate Art Collective in Booth #222! #Surtex is taking place May 17-19/2015 at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC and is a fabulous trade show where artists from all over the word have new designs available to license and sell to many different markets. I’ve been working very hard on creating a ton of new artwork and this is why I’ve been so quiet on the blogging front over the past few months!

I’ve been more active on my Instagram and Facebook where I’ve revealed a few sneak peeks of some brand new surface patterns that will be available at the show! Below you can find my brand new hand-lettered digital flyers with the sneak peek artwork revealed 🙂 If you are at the show, I hope you’ll stop by Booth #222!
