So, this past weekend I was able to attend the CTN Animation Expo with my husband. This was my first time going and it was quite an experience! There were so many amazingly talented artists it was both overwhelming and incredible inspiring! I have been super busy lately and haven't made much time for creating, luckily this expo made me so excited to get back to creating that I am hoping I can make time. Here are three artists that were at the expo that really helped to inspire me to get back to creating . . .
I was mesmerized by Julie's paper collaged pieces. I am such a tactile person that I just adored the texture and detail she could get with cut paper. Her art made me eager to explore collage more. Here is one of my favorite prints by her . . .

I was also inspired by Alina's awesome watercolors. I love working with watercolors and just love the movement and mood Alina creates in her compositions. She does some really cool illustrations of the astrology signs. Her characters are just so sweet looking and the effects she creates with watercolor are stunning. Check this one out . . .

I just love this illustrator! Her pieces have such a great feel to them, I love the texture in her scenes and her color palettes. I was drawn into her booth by this one print that just has such a cool composition and of course a cat. Who doesn't love an illustrator that draws cute cats?
Here is the piece I just loved . . .
