Pictures from when I was setting up my “Sweaters Only A Mother Could Love” show. It took longer then I expected but my sister was a great help and stuck it out with me.

I’ve been painting a series of large sweaters lately so here are a few process shots. You might remember this sweater from when I posted the original digital illustration.

Cardboard pieces for my bathroom installation. A trashcan, scale, toilet paper role, clock and a piece of wood that will be turned into a towel rack. Now that I’m getting the hang of making things its time to just start cranking them out, I don’t have that much time to finish everything up. 

Another chair with some WIP included.

I’m trying different ways to create large images. Four sheets of 9x12 bristol paper tiled together. I was having some fun mix matching the different pieces.

*****Do you want an illustration done of your bathroom? I’m working on bathroom zines, illustrations and a large installation similar to the work above and I am looking for people to send me pictures of their own and/or someone elses bathroom. I want pictures of the bathroom from a few angles and maybe the items, shelves, ect. whatever your comfortable with. NO people in the pictures please though animals are always fun. No staging, I’m not looking for beautifully designed bathrooms or anything over the top just keep it real.

If your interested just send the photos, the name of the persons bathroom and if you have anything you want to say about the bathroom to my email, katrinacastillo@live.com, or even to me here on tumblr. Thank you! *****

More work from the image a day assignment I did. The words are pinkalicious, wreath and mustache.

The wreath one morphed into a sort of seaweed maiden/monster. Can you see the face? 

Happy Valentines Day!!

Our first assignment in my illustration class is to create an image a day for 24 days with each image inspired by a different word. Here are a few of the first ones that I did. My words were shoes, hair, communication and cravings. Done on 9x12 paper.

 For a cd cover assignment I made a slip cover for The Lumineers with two different versions of the back. This was the original use for the terrariums. 

This was my first try at combining flat paper images with 3 dimensional objects. I really like how these terrariums came out so I’m definitely going to experiment more with this idea. I just gotta hunt down some different glass containers to make more.
