sketches: osprey-girl, princess seashell & the cape

i sat and sketched while this huge osprey perched high atop the scrub pines...

cape cod is such a beautiful and inspiring place. we visited a native american burial ground overlooking a pond filled with ducks and swans. many people have left offerings on an old tree stump, we left drawings. princess seashell is now fluttering atop the altar there, weighed down with a seashell. this is a 2nd version i did so i wouldn't forget.
i also literally hugged a tree.

"Bedwetter" Wins Grand Prize at Xto Awards!

I was able to make it to the opening night of the Xto Awards in DUMBO, Brooklyn - and it's a good thing I did because my pretty ice cream blondie took home the big prize for illustration! Big thanks to Nicole Dominguez for doing such a wonderful job putting on a lovely show. We then drove through the night and arrived back in Cape Cod for the sunrise! Amazing....
