Fun Stuff!

I just checked out my ad on and love it! I also saw it in print for the first time today while out at the Croton bagel store. Yay I'm hoping I get a client or two soon. I'm also rethinking the layout of the ad, my name is more prominent than the service I offer. It should read more "Murals, Murals, buy some Murals!". Something like that!

New colors, new gesso, and some glitter too:

Advertising myself

I'm finally considering advertising myself out there in the real world. I'm making a black and white ad for a local magazine called "Mom Offers More". It's pretty popular up here in Northern Westchester County, and hopefully I'll be getting some real business soon. I'm looking forward to starting a new project!

The tree art is from two different tree mural projects I did recently for friend's nurseries. My website that you can see listed here isn't live yet, but maybe by tonight it will be! I have it hosted on
I designed this full color ad that I think I will turn into a business card also.
