Hi Again!

Hi Blog Followers,

So much has happened since my last blog post. I plan on being more active on here.

I'm proud to say that I have finished my book Lorenzo, the Pizza-Loving Lobster.  It will be released in summer 2016 through Little Bee Books! I'm so excited! More news about Lorenzo's book release will be coming soon.

I also have been working on more children's books ideas and illustrations.
Here are two of my latest pieces.

Recently I added more cards to my Etsy shop. I had so much fun expanding my "punny" Christmas card collection. I hope they make you laugh!
To view them please visit my Etsy shop url is www.clairelordondesign.etsy.com
Here are some of the cards:

Currently I also am taking a screen printing class, which I'm really enjoying.  I have always wanted to take screen printing.  Below is my first project - Pizza Rat!

My first color was pink

My second color was a transparent yellow.  The orange is created from the overlapping of the pink and the transparent yellow.

The final image with the third color of maroon. 
This is one happy rat!

I also have been busy with the Inktober challenge. Inktober was created by Jake Parker, as a challenge for artists to create any piece of artwork every day in October using ink.  It could be a pen, ink wash, or anything ink related.  This has been a great exercise for me since I work mostly digitally. Here are a few selected images below. To see more please visit my Facebook Page or Instagram.





More artwork and updates coming soon!
