More Mystic Seaport

Here are a few more drawings I did at Mystic Seaport, CT. There is just something about the rustic feeling of Mystic that I love. The old shipyard, the wood, the metal and the ships! It allows me to do something different with my drawing.-Danielle

1482 CARE Haitian Relief Fundraiser

"In response to the recent terrible earthquake in Haiti, the illustrators of Studio 1482 have each created a piece of art to raise money on behalf of the victims. It is our effort to support the international appeal for funds by CARE, a leading humanitarian relief organization. We’ve selected CARE because we believe in their commitment. For each donation of $50 or more to CARE, you will receive a hand-signed 13″ x 19″ limited edition print from one of the Studio 1482 illustrators."

The Studio 1482 fundraiser continues until Feb.8. Please pass this post on and click the link below for more info!

A Return to Mystic Seaport

This past weekend I went to Mystic Seaport with the Dalvero Academy in Connecticut. It was 21 degrees outside and snowing on the first day! But it was the best way to start off a New Year. This is a drawing I did of the shipyard. I was sitting by my friend Julia and she heard me giggling. She said, "Haha why are you laughing?" I told her, " I just get so happy when I draw. Even though I can't feel my fingers and my face is frozen I'm still having the time of my life!"-Danielle
