    katie's corner starring alexandra billings

    The internet can be a great place.

    I've been lucky enough to "meet" the supernaturally talented stage and television star Alexandra Billings, and get to know her a bit through LiveJournal and Facebook.  It was our mutual love for Liza Minnelli that initially caused us to cross paths in the online world.  Alex's LiveJournal posts are always fascinating.  She's a true teacher, a survivor, and an inspiration, and has expanded my world in so many ways.  She's also given me tons of laughs!  I hope to one day be able to take her Viewpoints class.  In the meantime, I'll absorb, like a sponge, the knowledge she shares through LiveJournal and Facebook.

    Check out Alex's fantastic YouTube channel.  On it, you'll find HILARIOUS Katie's Corner segments (I won't explain them – just watch), which brings us to the illustration I got the urge to start yesterday (Kevenn and I collaborated on the shadows and highlights)!

    Thank you, Alex, for being a part of my life, even if it is only through the internet for now.

    wonder woman day iv 

    I'm once again donating art to Wonder Woman Day IV, a benefit for domestic violence shelters.  Kevenn T. Smith and I worked together once again to complete this.  Online auctioning for all of the donated art begins October 17, 2009.  Click on the Wonder Woman Day IV link for details.

    I always wanted to do an illustration of Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) and Andros (Dack Rambo) based on The New Adventures of Wonder Woman episode Mind Stealers from Outer Space.  So, here's an updated Wonder Woman rescuing an updated Andros from an updated Zardor!

    wonder woman and power girl:

    Kevenn and I collaborated on a piece for the Marla Bea Benefit Comic Art Auction. The auction starts Monday, October 12th through eBay. Proceeds benefit breast cancer research at the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City, IA. Check out for more information and artwork from other participating artists!

    On a personal note, my grandma is a proud, strong breast cancer survivor who has inspired me my whole life.
