I mentioned a little while back that I was participating in the Pokémon Battle Royale show at Light Grey Art Lab next month. The show paired up 151 illustrators with the 151 original Pokémon and I chose #137–Porygon. The show opens on April 20 in Minneapolis, so if you live in the area please feel free to come and revel with other Pokémon nerds! Chelsey and I will be driving up from Milwaukee for the opening. I finished up my piece over the weekend and wanted to share a little teaser. I'll post another update next week with a few more details.
P.S. Light Grey Art Lab currently has a Kickstarter going to raise funds to add a computer lab to their space for teaching art and design classes. It's a great space run by some amazing and talented people, just sayin'. If you're interested in learning more or backing them you can do so right here.

It was a lovely surprise this morning to go and check one of my favourite illustration blogs and see my beetle illustration peeking onto the page! Amy has started a new feature called Illo Crush where she asks her favourite bloggers to share some of their favourite illustrators. Mallory (from one of my other favourite blogs to check for illustration inspiration) is kicking off the series and was kind enough to include me in her list. You can see the rest of her picks right here.

The Fox is Black is a fantastic blog that highlights a whole range of subjects in the design world. Every week, they offer a new free desktop wallpaper as part of their Desktop Wallpaper Project. Ten Paces and Draw has been partnering with them since last year to offer a monthly wallpaper. For the month of March, I created this wallpaper based off of Julianna Brion's sketch which you can download for free right here. There is also a process post if you are curious to see how I work! Thanks very much to Bobby and Alyssa for bringing me in on this!
