Not long ago, I mentioned that I entered the world of twitter. But to be honest, it hasn’t really clicked for me. While I do like the quick bits of info and will continue to poke around once in a while, I finally found my social medium of choice…Instagram. Friends have told me I’d love it, and it only took forever for me to check it out. I’m hooked.
It makes sense. I’m definitely a more of a visual being. I love connecting through pictures. Now a dear friend insists that I get o
I always paint on cold press paper watercolor paper. It has a dimply texture that I feel lets you brush around paint while absorbing some water, so your pigment doesn’t run too fast and far away from you. But as a recovering creature of habit, I thought I’d experiment and feel out Hot press paper. This watercolor paper is completely ironed smooth and bright, and felt oh-so-refreshing to paint on.
For me, lunch breaks usually include opening mail and digging into at least one of my several magazine subscriptions. I LOVE getting a new magazine in the mail, and it’s my favorite September Issue season -woohoo! I hope my sweet mailman owns a weight lifting belt, these suckers are heavy. While Vogue, W, Bazaar are looking gorgeous and begging to be opened, I’m most excited to see Oprah’s cover: hmm…wonder why?
i love lady O.
A dear friend recently pointed out how my blog stinks. I haven’t been great at posting and I don’t have a lot of visuals. He’s right. And I’m working on it… I’m working on a lot of things actually. I’ll start tweeting (@sujeanie) and will start instagram-ing. Basically, I’ll start to live in this decade. Sheesh, I’m starting to feel embarrassed.
Anyway, I thought in the meantime, I’d begin posting some random work I’ve done since starting this blog.
I never thought I would. But I did. I’m on twitter… see? here’s my profile pic to prove it.I’m just learning the ropes and have not yet chirped…but I’ll get there soon. But by all means , please feel free to send me a note to help me get started. My new book is coming out in about 7 months already and I am working on another right now and am waiting to hear about yet another…so eventually, I’d love if you felt like following me at @sujeanie.
Oh, and I’ll follow you too:) And in the me
I am finally with agent. Literary agent, that is. And I couldn’t be happier or more honored to be part of the Pippin Properties family. Holly, Elena & Ruby are just golden.
So part of the initiation process is for illustrators to illustrate their version of the Pippin logo/mascot…the pig. Here’s mine :PIP! PIP! Hooray!! xo,s
You know when you don’t see something for a while …then when it pops up, you remember how freakin’ cool that thing was ? …and oh man, if it passes the test of time and keeps all its cool-it becomes AWESOME forever.
Thats how I feel about these t-shirts. Part Classic Rocker, part Iconic Film Buff -this collaboration between artist Bob Bianchini and Cinefile Video is something I freakin’ love.
For a long while now, I’ve been wanting to bring in some guests to this here blog. I thought it’d be fun to ask the same questions to different people. Whether an artist, a business person, a parent, a smarty pants or whatever we call ourselves-we all have something that moves us and makes us…well, us.
My first guest is the absolutely lovely Mia Scofield. A wife, mother, grand-mother, former school counselor, now founder and designer of Mo. & Co - a cool and casual hand
