A storyboard for a greeting card.
Our family sends out Easter cards instead of Christmas cards. Here is our card from last year - I also have this printed as a large storyboard for my wall. I love combining images into one print!

In an effort to post a few more storyboards, and to be a better blogger - I want to tell you about a wonderful local find for kids. I discovered4Cats Arts Studio while looking for a Vincent Van Gogh art class for my kids. This art studio focusses on hands-on art education for little ones ages 2-15.


The five day class was enjoyed by each of my children (they were 5, 7 and 9). The studio was in a great location, and was attractive, orderly and interesting. The participants heard stories about Van Gogh, examined his work, and studied about his style by creating their own art using Van Gogh's techniques. They produced a silk-screened tote bag, a charming watercolour self-portrait (using the basics of portraiture), a canvas painting (based on Van Gogh's Sunflowers), and a textured acrylic painting a la Van Gogh's Starry Night.
The teachers were engaging and patient, and my kids were eager to go back every day. The kids were very interested in 4Cats' other offerings, including the stop animation Star Wars class.

4Cats has just released their Holiday/Winter schedule. Go go go check it out!

Bad blogger! Bad blogger!

A client asked me ever so nicely about storyboards - so I've been looking around my archives for examples. Here is a favorite one from this summer - this is a 10x20" storyboard featuring snippets from 7 images.

The images were taken on Dunbar Street in Vancouver - the kids and I had a busy week swirling around this area during our lovely summer. I can't wait to write about it!
