#365anniedoodles-local-artist-made-in-san-francisco-original-affordable-artCan you even freaking believe that it's freaking MARCH already?? Seriously! Sheesh! And still--Annie. Keeps. Doodling.

Did you know: We're selling prints! Every single work of art she makes for this series will (eventually!) be available to buy in a limited edition run. If you don't see your fave for sale yet, it's only because she's creating this collection faster than we can keep up. 

Let's hear a little about what she's been up to:

Annie! You were just in Mexico City, and still managed to post some doodles from your vacay. Was it tough to take care of business while you were gone?

Well, I’m used to having all my art supplies around me in my studio, where I can choose whatever medium I want: collage, or painting, or whatever. For my trip, I decided to just bring some lovely paper and watercolors. On the first day, I took a photo of some beautiful tile from a restaurant and recreated that, and the next I chose to paint a pair of embroidered birds from a textile that my friend bought at a market. It was actually freeing to pick one thing to draw, then sit down and draw it.

Will that be a strategy you’ll use more often as the year goes on?

I’m traveling more this month, so yes! I’ll be in Florida for a bit, and will probably bring some pens and ink and other stuff so I can still be doing my doodles from my mother-in-law’s kitchen table. Then I’ll be in Ireland, and do the same. It’s actually really nice to have this thing to do every day, no matter where I am.

You’ve also been experimenting with some stylistic flora. How did you get going with those?

The symmetrical, non-realistic flowers are in the Dutch Pennsylvania style, and I’m having a lot of fun doing them. Usually my flowers are more organic—the way real ones grow—but it’s cool not being constrained by accuracy, and allowing myself to make stuff up.

You’ve also found some fantastic treasures to collage on top of your work. Where do you find those images?

I have a lot of vintage books and old magazines (I love the color they go as they age…).  Recently, I’ve started completely painting over sketchbook pages with acrylic, then using those to cut out for color, or to write on.
