Today I began designing a drawing class for Skillshare. The students will learn to draw dynamic dinosaur illustrations through daily practice and detailed instruction. Carnotaurus will be the first subject.
The Rancho District of Burbank California is currently my home. The summer evening light was perfect on Sunday. Pictured below is the first equine illustration to be offered by Lizzie M. Press, entitled “Chestnut Cameo.” I had great fun experimenting with posing the necklace draped over horse shoes, fence posts, and with in various backdrops.
Just three short hours after opening on July 3, 2015, Lizzie M. Press made her first sale. A lovely San Francisco artist and AAU Instructor, ordered the Owl at Twilight Art Pendant in a silver setting. With in the hour, another owl pendant was sold. An enormous thank you to my first customers. You are making this dream come alive. Your support is a wonderful source of encouragement. Namaste.
Lizzie M. Press is a collection of exclusive handmade jewelry and gifts by full-time professional illustrator Liz Masters. By day I specialize in storyboards and sketch art for entertainment advertising. After hours, I create artwork featuring prehistoric animals, mythical beasts, and beautiful creatures for you wear and share as gifts for loved ones.
The initial concept for Lizzie M. Press was born toward the end of 2014. I was searching for just the right personal project to express my individual creative spirit, while simultaneously creating a secondary, self-driven revenue stream. Lizzie M. Press was originally envisioned as an independent greeting card company.
On July 3, 2015 I officially opened the Etsy Shop lizziempress.com. This endeavor brings me great joy, as I combine over 15 years of experience in illustration, graphic design, and photography, with my love of unique handmade pieces. Thank you for reading. I look forward to adding a little fantasy and charm to your jewelry chest and mailbox.
