Good morning!
I thought I'd share a few pages from my sketchbook today and a few little projects I'm working on.

Essentially, I need to go to Central Saint Martins or else I will probably die of sadness, boredom, and claustrophobia.
Therefore, the goal is to MAKE MONEY. How exactly am I supposed to do that? Someone please educate me if you are a successful money-making illustrator. I can't seem to figure it out.
I'd be more than happy to send you or your friends a little one-of-a-kind illustration in exchange for something of monetary value! Or do you have rich friends who like careful line drawings, watercolour and marker compositions, or smudged pastel ladies? If so, please let me know.

Here are some pre-lim sketches for this designer portrait series I'm doing of Canadian pieces.
Pink Tartan

See ya later alligators


  1. Wow. These sketches are seriously amazing. I wish I had talent like that! ;)

    And I love the photo of you. You are so pretty!!

  2. Those illustrations are marvelous! You are an pating and fight!! :))

  3. hey hey! so glad to see you back at the blogging thing :) your sketches are awesome and your sketchbook with the collages are quite inspiring. quite a talent...i wish i knew people who were making a living illustrating but unfort, I don't! Will keep my ears peeled though

  4. it is so good to see some of your sketches! you are so talented! i especially love the pink tartan one!
    i will send some good money making vibes your way (even though i am in a similar boat at the moment)
    my suggestion though is to look online or through school resources about various illustration competitions or publications looking for submissions. getting your work out there and expanding your audience will bring in opportunities.
    if you have prints ready for sale and you have a pretty good base online, opening up a shop on etsy can help too!
    good luck!
    and ps. i love your hair!

  5. Stefanie - Really enjoying seeing your work and hearing more about your goals - I'll do everything I can to let others know about your talent - hopefully we can get you some gigs!
