Illustration Friday: Swim

You may have seen an earlier version of this.  This is still not quite final but it is from the book I have been working on for a while now as a side project. The book follows a dad who loves being a dad, morphing into various things for the sake of his kids (and his own fun).  We are in the final pre-flight stages and I am excited to get to share this with you.

Illustration Friday: Eye Glasses

Beware the Wolf in Disguise.  IF:Eyeglasses
My friend recently took a picture of my son wearing his self created wolf hat.  I just got to see the picture today and was reminded of the theme for the week, not that my son was wearing or does wear glasses, but the idea of a sort of clark kent disguise for a wolf man popped into mind and here we are.

I have been very busy finishing final illustrations for a book, prepping for the most recent artnight here in Pasadena (if you want to see what I did please check my other blog the first two posts have pics and info) and caring for my little guy who has been at home sick for more than two weeks now. He is finally feeling better and I am so happy.

To my IF friends, although I haven't had time to post or comment I have been trying to keep up with what your doing.  I have seen some great work and look forward to checking in again!

You are invited! Artnight @ the Armory





ArtNight @ The Armory Art Center - Connections 

6-10pm Friday March 8th, 2013

145 N Raymond Ave.
Pasadena, California

You are invited to enter a multidisciplinary collaboration exploring connections through
live music, 30 ft of projections, photography, and drawings featuring the work of

Buddy Zapata’s Junkshop Republic (music)
Kat Roberts (photography)
and myself
Alicia Gorecki (drawings, large scale prints, and video animation)
The work focuses in on local architectural bridges and support structures through the eye of each local artist.

Bridge: a connecting, transitional, or intermediate route or phase between two adjacent elements, activities, conditions, or the like.

For those of you unfamiliar with ArtNight in Pasadena, it is an amazing night out.

Local museums, galleries, performing arts venues and other locations have work on view from fine art to performing arts and music, the variety of work and performers is incredibly diverse and suitable for audiences of all ages depending on the site.
It is all free and shuttles are available to take you from location to location, just make sure you stop by and connect with us at the Armory! (Did I mention there is also FREE BEER?)
