If You Read Something, See Something

This is sort of an “update” to this drawing I made a few years ago. I’d like to think that we are meeting the bookish lady’s daughter, and the girl is just as creative and day-dreamy as her mom!

This piece is dedicated to the kids I met as a visiting artist last week at the Free Arts NYC after-school program! They are such an amazing group of kids, teachers, and volunteers, and I feel so honored to have played a part in their program! The kids are incredibly smart and imaginative, I can’t wait to see what they create in the future!


This is Otterly Elementary, Dear Watson!

I went to visit one of my best friends this weekend, who just moved to a new apartment in New York City! She and I both love the BBC/PBS adaptation of Sherlock, and she is a petite dynamo, so I made this for her as a housewarming gift!
If you are wondering about the reasoning behind why they are these animals, the actor who plays Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch, looks a bit like an otter, and Martin Freeman, who plays John Watson, looks a little like a hedgehog. (And yes, I know that Sherlock hated the deerstalker hat in this series, but the thing is, otters just look really good in hats!)
