This month I am featuring a couple of my illustrators. Both clients have very different styles. Nancy (Bee in a Bottle) has a more whimsical style and works with oil pastels as well as digital and line art, while Piyais all about incredibly detailed computer-generated art.

Candlewax on wooden drawers
This works! If you have any wooden drawers that are a little stiff and don’t slide easily, take the drawer(s) out and rub some candlewax along the edges of the drawer and the runners along which it slides. When I attempted to test this one out, I discovered that the drawers on my old family bureau also needed gluing, so what started as a few minutes project, ended up taking me a couple of days! But once the glue had dried and the candlewax applied, the drawers are certainly sliding a whole lot better! So now I have “Sliding Drawers!”
Greetings Everyone and welcome to the year 2009!
Just a little recap from the last bulletin – and a month of winding down and Holiday parties.
I attended my usual trio of parties – APA, ASMP and ASPP. I did not make it to the ADC or Adorama parties though. I noticed, for the most part, that everyone had definitely “cut back” this year but it didn’t prevent a jovial atmosphere and a decent dose of Holiday cheer.
