I made these key chains for Richard's sisters of their favorite animals.

This year I decorated some Moleskine notebooks for gifts. I illustrated King Tutankhamun's funerary mask for my Dad.
And this is the sketchbook I sent to my friend Laura! She drew me two awesome velociraptor characters last year and I finally finished my half of the art trade. You can see more of her work here.

Christmas is coming and I have to say I'm actually ready this year. Normally I'm up late Christmas Eve working on some last minute gift. I think it is probably because it is the first time I haven't been busy with finals since elementary school. I love the holidays and I love wrapping Christmas gifts! This years paper came from the Container Store and Target. My family also got a new kitten around Thanksgiving. She is a Ragdoll Cat named Luna and she hangs out with me in my studio when she is not in the Christmas tree.

Since I can't share the current projects I have been working on until after Christmas, I thought I would show you something a little less current. I have been making books and self portraits for a long time. My only hope is to someday make another book as good as these :)

I was commissioned to create a Christmas card this year for Service Master By Harris. This is only my second real attempt to create dimensional paper sculpture and I am please with how it turned out.
Christmas is a pretty busy time for me art wise but I can't post some things until after they are given as gifts ;) So around the first of the year except some new stuff!

May I present to you my finished website! I have been working on it for awhile now and I'm sure that I will keep adjusting things as I go but for the most part it is completed! caitlynharris.com is my professional portfolio. I am going to continue to update this blog as well with my less formal artsy type stuff. Did you notice the blog got a facelift to match?
I have often been told that my handwriting looks like it could be a font and according to Dawn Singh it should be called "ant shit font" which I think is hilarious. I decided to hand illustrate the text for my website. In the future I think I will probably just choose a pre-made one haha but I do like how it turned out :)

I entered the T2 Will Work for Doughnuts internship competition last friday and today they announced the three finalist, and while my video was not selected, two of the three were KCAI animation alumni. Congratulations to Adam Buritsch and Dan Buck and good luck to both of you on phase two! You can check out all the submissions here.

A preview of things to come. I got a critique from a professional Illustration magazine saying that my blog was too student-ish and that I should have a more professional website. So I have been working on getting one put together. Unfortunately this means I will have to get some new business cards made up. I have also been sprucing up the old portfolio and job hunting. It feels strange to not go back to school this year.

This is my final senior thesis film. I did and made everything myself right down to the floorboards except the music. The music was composed and played by Bryn Sumner, recorded by both of us and mixed by me. Thanks to my classmates, professors, and parents for their support.

I have been a little artistically stuck since I have graduated . No one is telling me what kind of work to make anymore which is both liberating and overwhelming. I'm finally starting to feel creative again and starting a new body of work called Home and also Away.
Sunday I was invited to be a part of Sturgis Falls, by a fellow artist Lisa Klenske. She had an art tent this year and asked me if I would like to sell some things too. I didn't have much notice but I did have some earrings and nick nacks hanging around from past conventions so I said sure. And you know I didn't do too bad.
I also made these paper flowers, they have a pin and hair clip back so they can work as a broach or a hair accessory. They are also coated with clear spray paint so they are water resistant.
