Company Picnic!

Our company has a picnic every year, and of course company picnic's come with picnic t-shirts! Last year I made a little girl going down a slide... So after watching all the big dudes in production walking around with that girly shirt for a year or so I decided to do them a solid and make something a little cooler. Enjoy guys!

New Dog Portrait!

This is Gracie, an adorable little dog that I was recently commissioned to do as a birthday present. I am going down to the Ron Jon’s Resort to hand deliver it today! It’s a long drive, but it’s a really beautiful place. If you are ever in the Cape Canaveral area, I highly recommend dropping by and doing the time share presentation, you will get a free day at the mini water resort and perhaps even a new vacation spot! Anyways, if you happen by and do a tour tell them Chelsey Austin sent you. Or, you can always send me a message and I will hook you up with contact info…

So I have been interested in photography for a long time now, just never had the money to get a fancy camera... WELL, for my birthday my Dad surprised me with a Nikon D5000! I have set up a separate blog (and am working on a website) to feature my photography and perhaps get new gigs.

 In A Flash Photography

When I got married two years ago I practically went crazy trying to find an affordable photographer, so that is who I am trying to be now. Sometimes you just dont have the money, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't have nice things. That is the concept I try to have with all of my artwork, so I am hoping I can carry that over into photography. I have shot a bunch of things already (wedding, engagement shots, treasure the dress, maternity, ect) and am hoping I can get some more clients who wouldn't be interested in something for a good deal to help me grow my portfolio... More to come =)

Entry to Julie Kagawa's Contest!

I know it has been a while since I updated with some new artwork, and I promise I will do that soon. BUT, for now here is my entry for a fan contest hosted by one of my favorite authors, Julie Kagawa. Aside from her books, I just love how much she interacts with her readers. Her is a link to her blog and to the contest page,

This contest is to celebrate her third book coming out in February, Iron Queen. The story centers around a girl named Meaghan Chase who is part human and part fairy. I dont want to get to into the story line, you can google it, but let me tell you that it is very addicting. Awesome fairys and love triangles, what is not to love?

Pictured is Meaghan, Ash, Grim, and Iron Horse. Done in colored pencil and ink I hate how much scanners ruin an image, but alas, it is the only way to get it onto the internet! I compensated by photoshoping a dark city scape into the background, a photo I shot while in NY... In Iron Queen it seems like they are preparing for battle, and from past experience, the female lead character really comes into her own and thats what I tried to capture.

Anyways, click to enlarge. Thanks again Julie Kagawa for hosting such an awesome contest!
