As I’ve been exploring artistically I’ve been trying many different combinations of illustrative techniques. I think pen and ink with translucent acrylic in still my favorite, but it’s fun to try different things…
Between the moving/construction/show mania/holiday mayhem I had acquired quite a mess in my studio. In my cleaning and rearranging it became abundantly clear that I have a surplus of certain prints and cards, as well as several paintings for one reason or other I am ready to part ways with so as to make room for the new and fresh of the new year.
I briefly considered just burning it all (Banana-stand inspired I’m sure) because I imagined that would be most cleansing. But instead I’m having a CRAZY SALE, because I thought that might be better for the peoples. (and you can’t say i never do nothing for the peoples)
Contact me at audrey.lopata@yahoo if you’re interested in something, or if you know my # you can text me :)

Beautiful people, the time is upon us to make any number of dramatic statement regarding things that will not occur again until next year. Examples:
“I’ve had enough! I’m never going to the mall again this year”
“That’s the last time I try to make jelly bean brownies this year!”
“I promise I will not bring any more elephants into the house this year”
And perhaps most significantly,
“Even though art shows are oodles of fun, this is the last one I’m going to participate in this year”

I’ve finally finished up my new and improved: Fairies: a fantastic coloring book!
Here’s a preview of the cover:
and here’s one of the new fairies, that makes the coloring book that much more fantastic.
And then there is my dear friend: Love Cake, a coloring book so ridiculous, I’m not really sure what to say about it. Here’s the cover…
And an excerpt from the inside..
I’m reeeeeally close to being done with this one too, sadly I’ve lost touch with the english language and I find my editing skills to be absolutely atrocious.
So the words are holding me back here….sigh.
Hopefully i’ll get it finished up so that I can get both of these printed for EAST, coming up in 2 short weeks!!!!
Here are a few previews of things that I hope to have done for the East Austin Studio Tour, coming up in November…
I’m probably going to end up painting this in acrylic, but i was playing around with colors in photoshop
Also, I’ve been working on some new fairy drawings to make a bigger and better fairy fantastic coloring book. This was an idea for the cover:
Check back again for more updates on East and magical new work for the holiday shows.
