Hot off the presses! New Book: “Artist Eyes”

Super duper excited, the boxes just arrived from the press, and they look fantastic! Grab a copy either directly from Airigami, or through Amazon.

A light-hearted gallery tour by Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle

It’s never too early to teach art appreciation. This light and airy view of art is an ideal way to introduce kids to the works of the great masters. Eight famous paintings, re-imagined by Larry Moss, are presented in these pages, paired with rhymes containing a hint of art history.

This is Airigami’s first illustrated children’s book. The pages contain the images from Larry’s Masterworks series. This is a fun and affordable way to acquire a complete collection of artwork.

My site is ugly. For the moment…

My site was hacked by some indiscriminate Ahmdosa hacker. He can suffer a thousand papercuts as far as I’m concerned. Thankfully the damage was minimal, but there’s going to be a ton of work for me that I really didn’t need over the next few days to get things back to normal. I has a sad. Feel free to leave me words of encouragement!

Day 2 of 30: My daughter is amazing.

If you follow me on any of the various social tools I frequent (twitter, instagram etc) you’ll know that I’m constantly singing the praises of my children. Yes. I know everyone’s kids are the best in the world- but man oh man, Chloe’s earned that badge tonight. I am completely SMITTEN over a present that she made for my dear friend Heather (aka @drfeather) who is expecting, so with Heather’s permission- I’m sharing it here.

Your Baby Book (the baby is saying mama)
Early labor? Oh wait- I can see the head!
She’s here! (someone might want to catch that…)
Aww Momma… I love the way her eyes changed to have a look of contentment on them.
And now she’s breastfeeding! Look at how she’s drawn her cradling her baby!

Ok, maybe it’s me- but she drew this all on her own accord. I love the details, I love the expression she’s captured on their faces. Did I mention she’s 6 years old? She is already learning how to convey emotion and feeling and depth in her drawings. When she’s absorbed in her work everything else seems to just move more slowly around her. She’s in her own world, in the zone- the place where everything flows… I consider myself so incredibly lucky to get to watch her grow as an artist.

(hey flower if you get to read this some day, YOU ARE AWESOME!)
