Guest Chef on the Waterfront

Hey there! I just read, on-line, that this year's Guest Chef on the Waterfront (see previous post) raised $100,000 for this fantastic organization. I like to think the posters and advertising I made for them helped achieve this. (Although, I think the wonderful participants and their awesome food, beer and wine really helped spread the word too!)

Visit to learn more about what they do. It's a great place to volunteer, visit and interact with the Seattle Community. Especially on Guest Chef nights!

Cap'n Chris' Crab Shack

Here's a fun gouache painting inspired by summer, my favorite place to eat crab, and the movie Popeye by Robert Altman. (0ne of my favorite movies, I don't care what anyone says!)

If you'd like, you can buy a print of this painting in my Etsy store!

Octopus Postcard

I think it's time to go to Aquarium! Here's a little postcard I designed to encourage your next visit!

It's always fun to see what's lurking beneath the water. Seattle has a great aquarium. I think my favorite part of the Seattle Aquarium is the room in which you see what lives in the Puget Sound. It's a great big bubble of a room with fish, and other creatures living in the water, swim all around you!

Now, I live near the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. This is definitely one of the best in the world. It's been way too long since I've been. But, one of my favorite exhibits was always the rain forest room... and the sharks, of course! Oooo.... and the penguins!
