Research: Eliza Wheeler

I am in love the the drawings of Eliza Wheeler. She nails perspective, scale, composition, line and color! not to mention her work is layered with details and sucks you in. Some make you laugh and others put you in the middle of  euphoria. Here are some images I pulled out for my students to see in relation to their contour line composition studies.

what's up

more works in progress. school has started and im back to teaching at VCU.
I am busy in my studio making new work for a show in Petersburg next month. Lots more images to come!:) I'm also starting to send handmade postcards to Jen Rofe at Andrea Brown Agency <3 hoping she will start following my blog. I heard her speak at the Winter SCBWI conference. I loved how she spoke about wanting to fall into the world of a good illustration.
