This week on my drawing board

I spent a lot of time preparing my prints for the opening of Treehaus, a new boutique that opened last Saturday in Atwater Village, Los Angeles. This is really what I did over the last two weeks between meetings and framing and other such runnings around. 

I took a little time to get a shot or two of some pieces framed.

Little towhead

The third in my fruit pie series. One more to go!

Snoballs. One of several new prints I'm making to replenish my depleted Etsy inventory.

Doris's hat. A riff on a hat i saw in an old film, and vintage TWA travel posters.

Last Saturday at the laundromat.

Abstract Saturday: Roger Hilton

Roger Hilton (1911-1975) was a British abstract expressionist painter of German extraction. My favorites are his yellow, brown and black works.

Jacqueline Chaumont

I can't tell you anything about this illustrator, sadly, but I came across these on the wonderful blog of Agence Eureka. There's a particular talent in doing so much with so little, as in these brilliantly simple illustrations. See lots more from this series here.
