A little process behind my “Zero Theorem” illustration for this weeks The New Yorker magazine.  Christoph Waltz is one of my favorite actors working today so I had a really great time drawing this.

A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.
The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”
You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.
(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)

I love it when a painting comes together smoothly!

I’m so excited!!! I finally have my own home studio! No more painting in the breakfast nook! We can actually (gasp) EAT in the nook! Who knew? Still have to paint and decorate, but I feel mass creativity on the way. A big thank you to my husband and son for all their help! 😊😁💕💜💜💜

I’m working on several paintings simultaneously. Since I work in oils, I can allow one piece to dry in between layers while working on another. This is a crop of an under drawing of a piece I’m adding to the rotation this week. :)

There is something deeply satisfying about scraping paint off the palette…and getting ready for the next adventure.
