Spring 2017 - Featured Works, Latest News!

Space Docking Station, 2017

Space Docking Station, 2017

Thanks to all who stopped by to say hi at the booth this convention season, and supported the arts this year! It was a wonderful to see everyone, both new and familiar faces. 

Starting in October, we will be vending as Siren Cove Studios. Look forward to seeing you!


Artist Retreat, 2017

Spending the later part of the week working alongside other artists at an art retreat, while absorbing the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

I'm always interested to see what others bring on trips, so thought I would share with you some of my art selections for your perusal!

Some must-haves for the trip: Refillable Sketchbook, Copic Markers - held in Daiso storage containers (the BEST for affordable art storage), camera, Tombow and Blackwing pencils, Prismacolor pens, and Copic Multiliners. Also, some reading for the road! 

Hoping for sunshine - but considering we beat an 1895 rain record here in Seattle this year, I also brought a water-resistant coat!

The happenings of Fall 2016.

Fall is almost here!

With it, for those of us who are Seattle locals, comes the clouds and drizzle too. But, along with all that also comes a lot of fun! While much of the conversation is currently about the Pumpkin Spice Latte...

We're all over here talking about tea! The Teacup Collection, to be precise. For those of you who have yet to be acquainted, meet Mews! 
Mews is a sweet little grey kitty that loves to snuggle inside its teacup, with plenty of toys and string nearby for playtime.

Meep finds a friend! Meet Squee, the newest member of the Teacup Collection.

Before, Meep was all by its lonesome self with its love of tea.  

Now, meet the latest new member of the Teacup Collection.  I was so happy to be approached by the team at OrcaCon to create an Orca in a Teacup! The image can be found as a part of their 2017 Kickstarter, as a t-shirt exclusive.

Meet the friendly little one below, which I have aptly nicknamed Squee! Their Kickstarter is live, so be sure to take a peek here

18th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards Video (& Drawings!)

There was so much happening around March that I had to delay some announcements until April! That said, the 18th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards intro was super fun this year, inviting industry studio artists worldwide to provide ink drawings (quick sketches) for their video.  I am happy to have had drawing(s) that made it into the video, along with many other wonderful studio artists!  The whole event had neat motion graphics throughout, created by Noodle House, featuring the drawings in motion.

These are some drawings that I did for the sketchbook, that while went unused (from what I saw) I thought may be fun to post here.  They were all drawn traditionally with pen and ink, with no underdrawing.  Enjoy! :)

 

Also, some of my works can now be found featured on a new site, showcasing the best contemporary female illustrators and concept artists working within Fantasy and Science Fiction.  Be sure to check out Women In Fantastical Art when you have a chance, as a lot of wonderful artists reside there!


The video can be seen on youtube here.

Cheers,

Marisa
