A couple of months ago, a dear friend of mine asked me to create a poster design for a show that he is directing in Calgary, Alberta.  Of course, I decided that, since he is such a wonderful person and since it is his directorial debut and since he is dating my sister-in-law (therefore, he is mostly family), that I would help him out.  After reading the script, I decided to go with a mixed media approach, combining pencil, pen, collage, and the computer.  I felt that it would be a really good way to portray the angst, and sadness of the story.  Today they released the postcard design (I did the art, and the graphics guy/gal put the words on) and I am releasing a step by step of the process!  Here she is:


If anyone in the Calgary area is interested in checking out the show here is a little info… I will also add the completed poster once they have it ready next week.

Ticket prices are: April 9 at 8pm are $10 Preview, April 10-12 at 8pm and April 13 at 2pm & 8pm are $20 Adult, $15 Student/Senior. Doors will open at 7:45pm for Festival Seating

And so… Another cold and stormy day…

So I am sitting here contemplating what to do today.  I think it’s a good question really, I got up WAY earlier than normal (normal for me being 11am, or 12pm, or 1 pm, or whenever… What can I say I am a wife of an actor and I live his hours).  The reason for this was because we were showing our house to… wait for it.. not one but TWO people today. This is exciting because there have been no bites since October (we have been trying to sell our house since, oh, last May…) Anyway,  BOTH showings were cancelled due to the miserable, horrible, no good weather out there.  Doesn’t March mean… Spring?  Maybe I’m crazy… but… yah I’m crazy.  So now I am stuck in this house, sick, tired from only four hours of sleep.  What do I do?  Go back to bed, read, watch a movie (that sounds tempting due to weather), or gee, I don’t know DO SOME ART??  I feel soooooo uninspired in the winter, on the prairies, where everything is just WHITE.  I rant?  Maybe little bit…  Well I guess we will see what kind of trouble I can find. Maybe I’ll check back later and let you know… Maybe not… Let’s see.  😛

Ho Hum!

I am SUCH a lousy website keeper-upper-er-er-er… Whatever.  SO instead of updating… A LOT… I decided to give it a whole new look!  Call it, me being too lazy to do some art these days, or too busy working on other websites, or trying to avoid housecleaning…  It is completely up to you, but none-the-less, here it is.  Not too bad if I do say so myself!  hehe  ❤
