I'm learning how to use a coupon code to make a sale over at my Etsy shop. If there's something you'd like, you can buy it for 25% off from now through this weekend. Just type in the code LINOLEUM at the checkout. Here are some of the original prints in my shop.....

I posted earlier about Lilla Rogers' Global Talent Search. I entered because I was curious to see what the assignments would be like. The first assignment was to create a journal cover with a vintage playground equipment theme. The word Journal also had to be in the image somewhere.
I had fun trying something different. This linocut is printed on a grid I drew with pencil and painted with watercolor. It has a really different look than my usual, and I think I'll try doing something like this again!
Next, the oddles of people who entered are narrowed down to the top 50. Those 50 people get the next assignment. If I don't make the next round, I hope I will still find out what the assignment is!
Here is the slide image I found online that inspired my piece. Doesn't it look like a fun slide?!

This is a print I made a couple years ago, but it fits this week's Illustration Friday theme so well, I had to recycle it. It's called The Tourists and I drew it while I was on vacation in Durango, Colorado being a tourist myself.
Very soon I'll have a brand new piece to show! Hint.... what black and white polar animal loves to slide on its belly?????

Here is my new print painted! I think it has a good summertime feel. And below is its black and white version. Usually I think the color is necessary to make it look finished, but this one has a nice balance of black and white and looks kind of good unpainted.
