Spring is almost here!
This winter has been frigid and busy, and while I'm still trying to make a dent in the things I thought I would have so much time for (yeah right), there's been quite a few things I'm proud to share.
I am SO THRILLED to announce my artwork will be 1 of 20 pieces chosen from artists across the country to grace the label of THE AMAZING BLUE MOON to celebrate 20 Years of artfully crafted beer! I am incredibly honored and can not wait to share the piece with you, stay tuned this summer for the release and follow me on social media to help vote my label as number one! @linds_lbocraft @BlueMoonBrewCo #BlueMoon20Years
At Art at Large, Inc., where I am right hand to the most incredible illustrator & business woman I know, Sally Wern Comport, our studio has been located in the Annapolis Arts District since before its designation. Its been a bit sleepy to start, but as of the past few months, with neighbors such as ArtFarm Annapolis, Charles Lawrance, Compass Rose Theater, and Metropolitan Kitchen, stuff is going down! We put together a float for Naptown's rapidly growing St. Patty's Day and it was ridiculous. Gavin of Metropolitan was "St Patrick" driving the "snakes" (kids) out of Ireland into the water, aka City Dock. ArtFarm graciously offered up their studio space for the painting of snake-filled murals to run the sides of one badass truck. Kiddos showed up to help and it was everything you want art and community to be.

I also headed to Baltimore Print Studios to letterpress our newly printed Art at Large business cards! Kyle & Kim are amazing and their workshops are so much fun, check out their studio on North Ave in the Station North Arts District of Baltimore.
AND we had a wonderful launch of Sally's latest children's picture book Love Will See You Through: Martin Luther King's Six Guiding Beliefs (As Told By His Niece) by Dr. Angela Farris Watkins and published by Simon & Schuster.
As for my pencil in hand, I'm getting back to my roots of drawing and journaling to reflect and build on thoughts and experiences from prior sketchbooks. Really getting diligent about drawing as much as possible.
I'm so excited to be back with the lovely ladies of HERE. a pop-up shop, Ellen & Amy for their Art Meets Style Encore at Maryland Hall this week!
Here are a few new pieces I'm debuting!
Hopefully lots more warm spring sketching to come!
