“Dear Lilla,

This is my submission for the blog Terrible Yellow Eyes. The TYE blog features a collection of works inspired by the beloved classic, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. My illustration is also an homage to the vintage chocolate poster by French artist HervĂ© Moran. I’ve also included some close-ups of the texture and a preliminary sketch.

Lisa DeJohn’s new succulent paintings

How gorgeous. No wonder why IKEA, Art Group, Chronicle, Godiva, and many others commission/license Lisa’s work.

Hi Lilla.
Here are the images with some caption ideas. This photo shoot was done during last February’s nor’easter. The kids had a snow day, and my friend Jilly (www.jillywendell.com) was visiting from LA. She had packed her camera and we had a blast. My art is inspired by the joy of childhood, and it is amazing to have my boys to remind me of that every day. It was so much fun watching them interact with my art & the camera.

Jenn’s house looks like this (mid-century modern). I am charmed by the tree pattern, too.

Hi Everyone,

A friend of mine surprised me with these cool NYC wood blocks
this morning which inspired me to create a quick shelf life for
them in my studio. Fun mini project!
