happy sunday everyone! I just wanted to pop by the blog to remind you that I still have a couple of spots open for my CACTI workshop happening this weekend at Way Art Yonder Studio. an extra fun bonus if you join us, Jana (the owner & amazing hostess) is having a private reception following the workshop! full details below:
“Cacti” on Saturday, June 17, 2017
10am – 4 pm $90 per student
Join us for the class, stay later for a hosted private artist’s reception in the courtyard of Way Art Yonder Studio. Mingle with Roxanne and the other artists, as you take in the late afternoon sights and sounds, and nibble on light hors d’oeuvres.
Class description: Art Journaling meets Illustration in this mixed media workshop. Join Roxanne Coble and other artists in this brand new class, “Cacti”. She will take artists through the process of creating a two-page art journal spread that uses succulents and cacti as a visual focal point. Through guided, step-by-step instruction, you will build up a mixed media foundation layer, and explore planning a composition, the use of a split-complementary color palette, observational drawing and unique illustration techniques.
if you’re in the SoCal or San Diego area, join me won’t you? there are also several out of towners coming in for the class, so heck – maybe treat-yo-self to a last minute road trip. also to note, James will be joining me for the reception after the workshop! (so, expect some #croutcorner references, haha).
as some of you may have seen on my instagram yesterday, I was finally able to share some pretty rad news…I’m a contributing artist in Tamara Laporte’s new Life Book book!!!! and yes, this was the secret project I was working on back in January (as seen on the vlog here and here).
I feel so incredibly honored (and absolutely thrilled!) to be one of the six guest artists in Tam’s book. I remember doing a double take when I first got the email about it, like: what! omg. does she mean me?! and while I can’t say anything about what exactly I’ve contributed quite yet…I’ll just say it’s pretty rad 🙂
I think this month’s playlist is a good one. for real. I’ve been spending some legit quality time in my studio and whenever that happens, I’m able to stockpile tunes.
this playlist is definitely more upbeat this time around. with tracks from the cults, ctznshp, and paramore, you’ll have that productive dance buzz happening in no time. as usual, the tracks do slow down on the back end, so listen in order…enjoy!
+ need more tunes? be sure to follow me on spotify so you can stay up to date on what I’m jamming to, including these monthly playlists! you can also check out last month’s playlist here.
it’s the youtube video I think you’ve all been waiting for…a tour of my art studio! but you know I couldn’t just do a plain ol’ video, so I’ve added a fun Wes Anderson twist to things. he’s always been a big source of inspiration and is a personal favorite of mine, so it seemed fitting to create the video in his style.
hop on over to my youtube channel to watch the tour! it’s definitely one of my favorite videos I’ve ever made…xo
