New Illustration – The Hunters and the Hunted. I would tread lightly in these woods… Thanks to the Serial Podcast, I was able to sit down and knock this one out fairly quickly.
I reverted back to an old familiar technique here, using graphite on rag paper with digital color. Unintentionally, the color palette is hauntingly similar to the spooky “What Was I Scared of” Dr. Suess book! I think that one left a lasting impression on me as a kid. Nightmares of floating pants… (see below).
Happy New Year! It’s the year for fully embracing social media, I can feel it. I’m kicking off the new year by posting an illustration which was included in the Minneapolis College of Art and Design Faculty Biennial show this past fall. The theme was the Wondrous, the Monstrous, and the Human. I was happy to be a part of this impressive and diverse show. For more information regarding the exhibition, you can read about it here.
May 2015 be sweet as honey!
Just returned from the Illustration Conference – ICON 8 in Portland, Oregon this past week! It was my first time attending and what an incredible experience it was! I highly recommend this conference to any illustrator at any stage of their career. I’ve left with a refreshed and inspired approach to illustration and enjoyed meeting so many illustrators, art directors, and creatives. I find it’s so important to emerge from your creative cave every now and then and commune with your fellow illustrators. I could talk about ICON all day…
In addition to the conference, I was honored to have a piece featured in the ICON 8 Work + Play group show at The Land Gallery in Portland, Oregon. I have been a big fan of The Land Gallery for years. If you are in Portland, go check em out! This show will be up until August 24th. They also function as a shop joining forces with the sister site: Buy Olympia. If you are interested in purchasing a print of this Laserbeam Blanket Island, you can buy it here!: http://www.buyolympia.com/q/Item=icon8-jaime-anderson-print
Welcome to Cave Tribe Island where Southwest meets the Stone Age in this blanketed, chocolate paradise. Mind the snakes and charm the dwellers, you’ll do just fine. That sun is a scorcher, make friends or grab a blanket! The idea for this island came about after a trip to Sedona this Spring, a welcome change from the polar vortex. Could have curled up in that sun forever.
More to come…
Welcome to Pyramid Island! Recently completed piece for my Tiny Island series. I am in the process of wrapping this little project up. Stay tuned for more posts and introductions to these invented places I call home.
Visit this tiny island and you will be welcomed by friendly locals, wise pyramids, and home cooked rattler. The only trick is finding a way to get there…
“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” – Albert Einstein.
Just finished this illustration for my spring promotional mailer. It’s based off the mysterious phenomenon called the Colony Collapse Disorder – in which researchers estimate that nearly one-third of all honeybee colonies in the country have disappeared. The cause of their disappearance is still unclear, though scientists are looking to pathogens, pesticides, and beekeeping practices as a potential strain on their fragile immune systems. Honeybees are essential to our ecosystem and responsible for nearly a third of our food supply including almonds, avocados, broccoli, cherries and strawberries to name a few. Read more about it here.
Hug a Honeybee today!
‘Tis the season for camping – whether it be in tent or desert Airstream form. Following up on my previous post, here are a few of the recently completed prints and patterns in color!
