Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been a little quiet over here at MH-HQ. I’ve been wrapping up a picture book, doing some work for animation, and now getting ready for ICON8 next week! I’m part of the Roadshow so it’s been a portfolio building flurry of fun.

Anyway, yesterday was my birthday and something I’d like to get back in the habit of is to give you guys a free present to celebrate. So: I whipped up some cute bookplates in a summertime palette! I love books and I love tiny things so it’s a match made in heaven. I’m going to sell them at the Roadshow (they’ll be decals!), but in case you’d like to get in on the fun at home, here’s a PDF you can print off and enjoy! Just trim on the lines (trim off the purple part too!) and paste into your favorite books. 

Take a picture and send me a shot of your books (I’m @meghunt on Twitter and @meghuntillo on Instagram!) I want to know what you’re reading and it’s always fun to see this stuff in the wild.

Happy summer!

Also, since I’ve been cooped up illustrating like a madwoman lately, here are some recent illustrations from the vaults. Above is an illustration for Women’s Health UK about online privacy, and two more recent illustrations for Jamie Magazine. I love getting to work with art directors’ design layouts— it’s such a fun creative challenge to make things fit into a space!

I’m really excited for Light Grey Art Lab’s new show opening tonight called The Omnibus Treasury! It’s all collections of illustrated jewelry; my collection is titled Geometricameo, and I bet you can figure out what that means, no? Above is the pendant I came up with. These were so fun although I felt challenged by the small size; I would love to experiment with bigger statement jewelry at some time (ceramics maybe?)! That’s just how I roll anyway. Lots of gold and lots of bold.

In retrospect, this palette almost looks exactly like the blanket I had when I first moved to Arizona. It all comes full circle!

Been hemming and hawing about how to show this project! Last weekend I took part in Linework NW and I promised myself I would make a book! So that turned into an accordion book all about a mermaid named Ondine who collects bioluminescent creatures. 

This book was created start to finish in six days. My first accordion book since 2003? Whoa! Now I want to do more! Many thanks to my student Wren who helped me cut and fold them in time. I’m going to see about making a little video to show this better, but in the meantime this will do. 

More personal projects, more books, more stuff! I am working on a big project but I need to share more and make more little projects. Been hemming and hawing about how to show this project!

Ah! It’s been forever since I posted to this blog, apologies friends! Between teaching, mentorship, moving and working on my first picture book it’s been kind of a busy spring thus far. But here are a bounty of vegetables from a few issues of Jamie Magazine I’ve whipped up recently. That crying onion is one of my favorite vegetables I’ve drawn yet!

I guess today is a post heavy day! Here are a few pieces I did for a book of poetry for Oxford University Press that I recently saw got published. I don’t draw dragons too much but it’s fun to experiment with shape! As usual, best enlarged. I guess today is a post heavy day!

Say hi to Arjun, a rather dashing fellow. He’s part of nearly 50 different love interests you can meet in Light Grey Art Lab’s Great Personality show opening up tonight! The show’s pretty cool— it’s all exploring how and why we’re drawn to people by their personality traits, inspired by Meyers-Brigg and other tests. So LGAL decided of all things to code and design a dating sim! I can’t wait to play—  designing a character based on personality traits (especially a guy!) was pretty interesting.

I’m thrilled to announce I’m teaming up with Motivarti this spring as a mentor! If you haven’t heard of Motivarti, they’re a unique program where artists and students can pair up with mentors to provide detailed advice and guidance over ten weeks. I’ve got availability to mentor two lovely people; maybe it’s you! 

Each mentee experience is tailored to the person (whether it’s more advice or working through assignments or both), but one thing I emphasize is experimentation and rigorous sketchbook experimentation!

Details here, along with the other awesome mentors to choose from (including my good friend Cory Godbey!)

Applications open Monday, Jan 13 until February 9. Local and nonlocal mentees alike are welcome to apply (though English speakers only I’m afraid!)— I’m happy to help!
