Working from home

I never imagined how different the world would be, a few weeks ago when I was sketching my friend's beautiful barn as a model for my second story. Then, my only worry was how cold my hands were getting, and how nice it would be to one day have all the freedom of a freelance illustrator, and choose my own hours to work.



But now, I feel almost unfairly lucky to have both the flexibility at the Press to work from home during these scary times, and to have my artwork as well—a comfort and an escape for me, among other things. Since this past fall, it has been one reminder after another that you never know what's coming around the corner. We'll see how things go these coming weeks and months. 

Please take care!

Workspace

I haven't posted in a while because I've been busily working on a couple of projects. I can't wait to share some images with you...soon!

Meantime, my dear friend and talented designer and photographer Joan Simpson came over to take a few pictures of my workspace, more of which you can see here on her lovely website, Pope Joan Design Studio.
