Happy Holidays

Hello there everyone! Long time, no talk. First and foremost I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday. I hope that you get to enjoy your time off and spend it with the ones you love.

I myself will be visiting family and heading back to Colorado for Christmas. I can't wait to see them again and to see the snow. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to feel very festive until now because I've been working. The snow will help with that, and the SNL Christmas episode this weekend put me in a good mood.

I'm 43hours into my new artwork, and I still haven't begun to color. That's just the drawing. So I will be MIA until mid to end February trying my hardest to complete this painting. That, and I'm planning two videos for it. First, a step-by-step video; just to show the process (not intended to be a tutorial) and then the second one will be a retrospective were I go back in and talk about the painting and how it came about (which will be more tutorial-like). So that will be fun.

Also, I have a video commission that I'm excited about. I will be creating an intro for a client's YouTube videos. So it's nice to be working with video again, and a good change of pace. That also means that commissions probably won't be open again until the beginning of spring.

Okay then! I best be off, I have to pack and get ready to go. Hurray for travel.
Is anyone going anywhere for the holidays as well?

xoxo,

Artist Feature: Neha Jain - 3D Artist

Does anyone remember this painting of mine?

Fish Shop | Painted in 2006

Well recently the lovely and talented Neha Jain was inspired to create two 3D renders based on the concept. How cool is that! I'm so thrilled to see that she brought the artwork to life in a whole new way.

So go check them out here:

Also, she just launched her new blog:

Go show some love, and tell her that Claudia sent you.

Cheers,

Look of the Month :: Winter 2011 :: December

So this winter is extremely different then last year. Coloring blocking is huge this season, so it's more about bright, bold, colorful fashion and less about makeup. This look complements that perfectly. It's a subtle way to wear monochromatic toned makeup (which is still very in), but natural enough to pair with loud colored clothing. Have fun this month; fashion hasn't seen color like this for the winter in quite some time. Typically those are reserved for the warm spring and summer months. Also, gold eyes are great for posh parties. Happy Holidays!

The current look is:
D E C E M B E R  2 0 1 1


Color trends for this month:
Claret, pumpkin, cobalt, cream, and silver

Current motivation for the look:
Color blocking, art, and the holidays
