I AM


Some folks at The Art Institute of Boston recently asked me to fill out something called an "I Am Statement." Part of the catch is that I would have to illustrate one of my responses. I chose "I am quirky and observant," because, well, I am. :)
My friends Kelly and Adam at One Eleven Images took some really fun pictures of me which made it hard to choose. They also took some snapshots of me in my studio, which is something I have yet to share on my blog...behold, my little corner of the studio I share with Keith:



As you can see, I keep everything precious close to me while I'm working: Totoro, Squirt, Gary the Snail, Toad, My Britney Lee print, my signed Raina Telgemeir ink drawing, my lava lamp from 6th grade, and a various assortment of books...aside from the books we have in the other room:


So that's about all she wrote - for now. I just got back from MoCCA where I met a lot of really great people and attained some new favorite items that will look nice in my workspace. Namely this portrait, painted by Nathan Stapely:


And this photo snapped by Scott C!


Keith did a really great post on his blog, which I linked to further towards the top! Until next time, faretheewell my friends. Thanks so much for reading and being so wonderful.

  9. I wish my workspace looked neat like that. Oh, and... I had the pleasure of meeting Raina Telgemeir years back and these days I've seen a few of my fifth graders with her stuff!

  11. Looks like a comfy and creative environment. The wall color feels conducive to the production of great illustration.
