Sketch: Lacy Number

This is a sketch I did several years ago for Instyle Magazine for an article on lingerie.
I love drawing lacy things as they provide much opportunity for squiggles.

My Open Studio Print sale

Thanks to everyone who came to my Open House /Print Sale on Saturday.
It was great to meet old friends, new friends, customers, + several bloggers who I had never met in person.
Much thanks to Sasha, Araceli, Nat, Andrew, Nod, my brother Danny + sweet M for all your help.
 Araceli looking '1920s gorgeous' + one of my all time fave "Art Patrons": Anne Lamarche

Nat + Andrew

 The fabulous Al + Sasha who were such a big help.

Customer Shadi (who cracked me up with her tales of men) leaving very appropriately with one of my Bernard Shaw Penguin prints.
 Page + Handsome un-named Male!

 Karyn + Bruce
Melissa Agostino of Sali Tabacchi + Ezra.
(Alas no photo of Henry + Luna!)

My agent Shelley (looking very contemplative) :-)

Marlene Klassen in fantastic felt dress.
A very helpful fella packing an Empty Belly print for Shelley.
Liz Kingstone demonstrating how my tea towel could make a nice apron to fellow Cabbagetowners  Ghislaine + Shannon.

It's all over!
Leaving for a celebratory dinner and finding that some very thoughtful someone had stapled up some of these signs at the TTC stop across from the Drake. :-)
