Easy as ABC



I'm very excited to finally get this photographed and up on Etsy. It's been finished for weeks, but this working girl couldn't get a daylight photo for the longest time.

Let me tell you, it was pretty challenging trying to find Oklahoma animals for some of these letters, as you can probably tell by Unicorn caterpillar and foX. The most surprisingly difficult letter was N. Really. And then a friend unearthed internet evidence that newts do indeed live in Oklahoma. Yay newts!

If you are an Oklahoma retailer who'd like to carry this in your shop, please contact me (jen-at-jenoaks.com) for wholesale info. As always, it's right here in my Etsy shop. Up next is a more general, non-Oklahoma version for the masses, and then possibly an all-marine life version.

I originally made this for my two year old niece, Amelia, and I'm sending her one tomorrow. I hope you like it, babycakes.

April First!



My MFA show is fast approaching! I'm really excited and can't wait to finish the new pieces I'll be showing. Two weeks from tonight, guys.

The official details:

"Urban Field Notes"
Gallery opening reception:
Thursday evening
April 1, 2010 — 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Gallery Exhibition:
April 1 to May 2, 2010 daily
10 am to 6 pm

688 Sutter Gallery, San Francisco

"Urban Field Notes" is a love song to the simple pleasures of city life. It's about cutting a clear path through the chaos of an urban environment, to arrive at a place where the city belongs only to you, the viewer.

Thirteen pieces are from "Downtown," my MFA thesis project and 2010 calendar, which will be for sale at the gallery. The exhibition also includes five brand new pieces that also explore the city theme.

All works are framed and matted archival giclee prints. Additional prints will be available for order.

See you there!

The calendar price drop begins




Since it's now March (already?!), I've relisted my calendar at $18, down from $26. I've still got plenty, so if anyone's still in the market for one, here's your chance. Clicky!
