The production of TWYGA portraits has slowed as I've focused on creating a special commission for Community Human Services. Interviewing ten of their customers, I am also testing out some new materials and approach to the process of illustrating people's talents.
If you don't follow my Instagram yet, it's a good way to keep tabs on pretty pictures I'm working on. Below are some samples of work in progress. It's all ink on yupo which I think might be my favorite combination of art materials of all time.

In other news, I'm organizing a small residency in Bar Harbor, Maine for a short period of time in May. Anchorspace, a beautiful co-working space inside a Victorian style building in the heart of the beautiful town of Bar Harbor, is hosting me from May 20th until the end of the month. For the first few days, I'm planning on interviewing women in the area who are leaders in their field/community. If you or someone you know fits the bill and wants to model for a portrait, fill out this Google Form.
Otherwise, stop by Anchorspace on May 26th from 6-9PM for the opening reception of the exhibition, showcasing portraits of The Talented Women of Mount Desert Island (originals and prints available for purchase). Please share with your networks!
