Illustration in Uppercase Work/Life

I got my copy of Uppercase's Work/Life Illustration Directory yesterday and it looks amazing!  Truly the book itself is a work of art-- all the little details added in, the design.  You can tell the care and hours that went into it.  I'll try to take some pictures, but here's my illustration and some close-up detail shots!

Ah it feels good to unveil it-- we all made original pieces for the book and then promised not to show them ahead of time.

Anyways, I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Don't those kids look like they're having a good time?  I want that pink skirt...

I think I've mentioned it here, but Uppercase's Work/Life 2 international illustration directory is coming out soon and I'm in it!  All the artists did new pieces for the book which are a secret until it's release.  The suspense is killing me.  I can't wait....

Tiny me on Uppercase Mag blog

I recently submitted a piece to Uppercase magazine for their "Feeling Bookish?" call for entries.  They were asking for self portraits of artists as book covers: Uppercase magazing

I love Uppercase.  G got it for my mom for her birthday last year and she's been generously sharing her copies with me.  Each one is so gorgeous and printed on thick luxurious paper...The kind of magazine you never throw away.  Basically a lovely book, you get monthly in the mail, filled with inspiration and crafty people and amazing arty things... I could go on.  But I won't-- if you haven't already, you should check it out for yourself.

Yep, I know what I'm asking for this Christmas.

Anyways, a few days after submitting my illustration, I noticed it up on their blog!  Can you see it up there?  You have to look close! Uppercase mag I guess I made the short list-- they'll print their favorites in the next issue.

Fingers crossed.
