Illustration Friday Topic: Savor

I changed this up a little bit since I last posted it on here: my illustration of The Little Mermaid. Thinking about the original Hans Christian Anderson story, it makes me think about being happy with who you are and not changing that for another person to want you. You have to "savor" who you are.

Added bonus, this and other prints will be available at 20% off on Cyber Monday. Promo code: CMBR2010 at http://www.etsy.com/shop/beenznrice

Progress on my Little Mermaid Shrine.

I'm not done yet, I have big plans for her, but with this head start (I used the extra hour today to work on this instead of sleep), I should be done in no time. I am really loving the way the glass and seashells mix.

Here is what I had on loop while working frantically this morning, a great band that's the side project of Rostam Batmanglij the keyboardist from Vampire Weekend and Wes Miles the vocalist from Ra Ra Riot. Enjoy!

btw, it's not the official video, but it makes me quite happy:


Camarillo Figure Artists Meetup 11.04.2010

I've been wanting to go for a while, but we finally made it this past week. It was great. The model was lovely and the drawing group was great and quite diverse. We will be going again this week. It's located at Blue Sky Art which used to be Los Primeros Elementary on Ventura Blvd. If you're in the 805 area and are interested, here's the link for the meetup: http://www.meetup.com/Camarillo-Figure-Artists/

The first three red ones are Carlos's and the rest are mine (Naomi). Have a great weekend!
