Book Cover for a novel, "The Flower Garden"
I created this book cover in Adobe Illustrator. The partially hidden letters reflect the mystery novel’s story which is set on a tropical island.
Red-Winged Blackbird Sitting Among the Cattails
I added some display text and a little bit of information about the bird to convert the illustration into a poster. The text at the bottom reads, “Among the most abundant birds in North America, the Red-winged Blackbird can commonly be seen sitting atop the cattails in marshes or hopping along soggy roadsides. The red shoulder patches of the males become most prominent when they sing. Their primary food is insects and seeds.”
The original artwork is 11″ x 14″, but since this is a vector file, I’ll be able to reproduce it at any size that’s proportionate to that. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to order a print.

Red-Winged Blackbird Among the Cattails
This digital illustration, done in Adobe Illustrator, is based on a watercolor painting I did about a year ago. There are a lot of red-winged blackbirds in the foothills where I live, especially in the springtime. I love to hear them with their lively chatter.

Creating art, particularly drawing and doodling, can be a zen-like, meditative activity that can be very relaxing and therapeutic. Author and artist Susan Hill has designed this book to introduce you to this “zen” by instructing you on how to create a simple painting by following a few easy steps. The finished painting, a mountain scene featuring intricate patterns and delicate watercolor washes, is small and can easily be completed in one to two hours. In this way, the activity becomes a quiet little exercise that anyone can enjoy.
