Here is a preview of "The Tale of Hot Dog and His Missing Green Shirt", a BRAND NEW book written by the second grade students of Sylvanie Williams! More info will be posted soon.
All of this is apart of Big Class, which is super wonderful and I hope you all check them out (and volunteer!). You can also keep up with Big Class on their tumblr: bigclass
Lately I’ve been really inspired by the warm weather, knick knacks around my studio, and little quirks in my New Orleans neighborhood. I decided to share these little bits of my life in the "About" section of my website, since I feel that these photos accurately describe my personality and work :)
(they’re pretty much selected pics from my instagram but whatevs)
So a cool thing happened last weekend: I got to check out my sketchbook at the Crescent City Farmer’s market! The Sketchbook Project is traveling around the U.S. and was in New Orleans this last Saturday. See if my sketchbook “This List” is coming to a city near you!
I had such a blast looking through everyone’s work! My favorite was this little book filled with rainbows! This is definitely something you won’t want to miss.
In case the tour doesn’t stop at a city near you, I uploaded my sketchbook to ISSUU! I didn’t include all the pages, some personal written lists I left out and one awesome illustrated spread I forgot to scan (!!?!!?)
So see for yourself and click the little grey rectangle below to check it out or see it here.

Doing a super fast turnaround theater poster! Here’s some process.
The incredible Zoë Lotus ( zoelotus ) created this rotating GIF of all the different parts we created!
Try taking a screenshot and see what creation you get!
Julia Lavigne is an illustrator and my new favorite person in the world. (Sorry husband and kids.)
I wrote some words — and Julia turned the words into ART. Virtual high five to Julia! And a hug! And a smooch! And then one more high five! There are seven more of our cartoons featured on the Huffington Post right now so please go look and then, if you like them, share them with people you love. If you don’t like them, share them with people you hate. I don’t care. Just share them.
All the love right back to ya, Melissa!! I’m pretty darn proud of these. Check em out, y’all!! http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/4854257?utm_hp_ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false
The Exquisite Corpse is not only a picture game, but also a word game! Each of our members were put into groups of four and assigned to come up with a random word following the adjective, noun, adverb, and verb pattern, without knowing what was said before them. Here are our three hilarious sentences - click the words to see who said what!
We really showed off our vocabulary this month! hahaha
Gonna add my team’s phrase (the first one) to my list of things to draw when I do warm ups.
I took my website offline to fix some things. In the mean time see my work on my Behance: https://www.behance.net/julia-lavigne
