034: Hrisey Exhibiton

A poster that I made for Gamli Skoli Open Studios Art Exhibition! It is in Icelandic ;)

Today, Gamli Skoli artist residents and myself opened our doors to the residents of Hrisey island. We held a group exhibition showing off the work that we have been working on this April. The exhibit was made up of 5 artists: Alexander (AKA Xander) Clinthorne, Cody Connoley, Keiko Kurita, Anna Ortiz, and Kimberlie (AKA Kimie) Wong. It was a great success! 
I presented my Sketchbook Project: Limited Edition, 5 children book illustrations, and 2 misc. illustrations. I sold  2 of my landscape illustrations that will now be part of the permanent collection of Cafe Hrisey. Here are two pictures of the work! They are based on the beautiful Hrisey landscape and my own bird spirit character. Enjoy!

033:Sketchbook Project: Limited Edition

Hello from Iceland! I am on Hrisey Island, doing an artist residency in Gamli Skoli. It really is beautiful here! I am happy to tell you all that I have completed my Sketchbook Project: Limited Edition. This one in particular is very exciting because it will be published this upcoming fall. My sister is participating as well! Oh! and the first sketchbook I did for Art House Co-op is now being exhibited! I got an email that my art book was being viewed!!! That is the most amazing feeling! Here is my cover, I chose the plant that is here on is pronounced "kfun"...I think.

Now that this is complete I can start working on some children books with Xander and drawings for the end of this month. We will be having an open studio here in Gamli Skoli with the other artist residents (I hope!).
