Fabric takes me to my happy place, but have I shared how much I'm "in the zone" when I get to draw? It's like releasing all the frustrations of the week from my shoulders down to the pencil and on to the paper. Ahhh.
I've started a commissioned project for Heather of A La Mode Fabric. She started the Designer Fabric Swappy-Poo group on Flickr here. I've enjoyed getting to know her a little better through our quilting bee and swap group. There is such a great community of modern quilters out there that I'm getting to know and loving it!
One of Heather's favorite movies is The Life Aquatic. She and her husband must have a crazy-dry sense of humor, because I rented the movie last night and it was nuts! I enjoyed it, but realized it takes a special area of your brain to follow all the dryness ;)
She has requested a set of three illustrations with an aquatic theme for their master bedroom. I got started today and here's the beginning piece... I hope she enjoys them as much as I'm enjoying the artistic process!
