With that said, I will be flying off to Chicago this weekend to attend the opening show at Ars Memoria Gallery. This show looks ridiculously good and I could not be more flattered that they asked me to participate. Truly.

Also, if you’re in San Diego, pop into Hess Brewing for a frothy adult beverage and some art!

Drawlloween

Recently I decided to participate in the annual artist festivities of Drawlloween/Inktober. I decided to make paper cutting work instead of illustrations. It was a challenge but I had some pretty awesome work come out of it and was really well received. October continues to inspire me. Here are a few of my favorites…drawlloween collage
Top: “Graeae” (inspired by the Stygian Witches) & “Wednesday”
Bottom: “Ripley” &  “Elsa”
Hand cut paper, sizes varied

The rest can be viewed over on my Instagram page

Sectumsempra!

After much scramble, hand cramps and sweat the size of bullets over a timely delivery, I finished my piece for Sectumsempra: A Harry Potter Group Show. The show is curated by Kate Eagan and has a total of 44 artists.

I decided to do a take on a Death Eater playing card, choosing the mask of Bellatrix Lestrange since she’s for lack of better words, a badass.

She took a good 30 hours to cut out by hand and about 73 x-acto blades. Curves are tough and it is really east to snap the tips off. Considering how many curves are in this piece, you can see why.

The show opens June 5th, 2015 and will be up for two months at:

Milk & Honey
518 S 4th St
Philadelphia, PA
For inquiries: (215) 928-1811

For more details you can follow/contact at the Facebook event page. If you have the opportunity to catch it, I highly recommend opening night as there will be many magical themed goodies and amazing pieces in this show. Also,  to be perfectly honest, these photos do her zero justice.

the latest….

I recently opened up a new shop with big cartel. I decided to make a move away from etsy and couldn’t be happier with the way my work is presented. Lots of goodies sold and I hope to add more in the weeks to come.

You can see the new shop (and ahem, purchase art) here–> ivonnecarley.bigcartel.com

Also! I have recently been added to an impressive 49 artist roster for a Harry Potter Group Show at Milk and Honey in Philadelphia. Show opens in June and will be up for two months. 11138131_10152997267302949_7215598191876111460_n

More information about the show can be found over on the Facebook event page

tap tap, is this thing on?

Updating so many spots at once, you’re bound to forget one of them. In any event, I have been busy making new pieces and trying to get together a nice batch to list in the next couple of weeks.

I recently moved my art to another account on instagram that way if you only want to see art, you can do just that. Not everyone likes cats after all.

You can find me there at @ivonnecarley or on Ello at @IC

The Bees Knees

I contributed two pieces to a wonderful fundraising group show organized by Aunia Kahn, fellow artist, curator and owner of Alexi Era Gallery in St Louis, MO. The Bees Knees: 100 Postcards For Honey Bees & Honey Tasting.

The purpose of the show is to help raise awareness about bees, the decrease of the bee population, as well as to raise funds for honeylove.org.  I contributed two postcards for this awesome group show and here they are!

The Queen  + The Drone  | 5 x 7″, hand cut paper and vellum, layered over 400 lb watercolor paper.

To be honest, these photos really do not do them justice. The texture gets lost, as well as the small details, like layer of vellum under the wings and the Queen ended up getting a pleated vellum collar. Here’s a detail shot that gives you a better idea.

It is truly awesome to be included in this show along with so many other talented artists! Show opens July 19th and all pieces will be sold on the spot so if you get there early you may be able to score up on some pretty amazing work.
