Nurse Dani

My little sister Dani is only 19 but she just graduated with her LPN. Of course she has been working as an LPN since she passed her boards in January, but graduation is always a special time. She will be pursuing her RN, but I'm really proud of her accomplishments!!! This weekend I helped her redesign her myspace page using a div overlay. Here is the original illustration...

{ink & color pencil}

Here is the myspace page with the scrapbook style. The nav has some cute rollover effects too. I am hoping she likes it (she was working while I was doing she is in for a nice surprise when she gets home tonight! :)

Weekend Wandering

Sunday turned out to be a gorgeous day with great light...even the fallen blooms came back to life on camera. Please forgive my absence from this space. I have been extremely busy and have been uninspired ever since my great grandmother passed away. One way I coped with everything that was going on in my life was to bury myself in work and more work. I don't know if it helped me emotionally (it certainly didn't help me creatively), but I was rewarded with a raise and a promotion, so that brightened my day and helped me see the beauty around me with a fresh set of eyes. It is true, the sun always rises.Here are a few spring photos I snapped while walking through my neighboorhood this weekend...
