This new series has been equal parts fun and challenging, and totally 100% worth it. These new pieces are maybe my favorites ever. Am I allowed to say that? They’re big, detailed, and fun for me to print, so I’m smitten.

The biggest surprise of all? I broke away from my “black + color” mold. I mean, I still totally did the black + color thing, but I also decided to try out some other color combinations, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result.

Giving myself the freedom to “break the mold” and combine any colors that I want to try has been exhilarating. There are approximately 1.5 million combinations that I want to test out, and I plan on working through them one by one as I move forward from this point.

This job of mine is like walking on stepping stones. Each step leads to something new, something unexpected, something better. I can’t wait to see where the next step takes me.


I’ve pretty consistently been purchasing my supplies from Blick. They’ve been around since 1911, and they are one of the largest art suppliers in the nation. As an affiliate for Blick, if you ever purchase materials through a link that I’ve used, I will be compensated a small percentage of your purchase.
