Many of you know that my Greensleeves video recently was selected as a winner for the American Illustration/American Photography's International Motion Art Awards 3 (yes, quite a mouthful). It is officially up in their archive, and you can find it here: Ai-Ap IMAA. You may need to scroll through some other amazing artists before you find it under my last name: Mohrlang, Rebecca. I am completely honored to be chosen and placed next to artists I love like PES and Serge Bloch. If you're interested in poking around, I find the "What Makes You Happy?" video incredibly amusing and wonderfully odd.
I was able to be in New York for the "Big Talk" and "Party" to celebrate all the Ai-Ap awards. It was great to meet people, hear new ideas, and see the other work that was selected for the various collections. Fun to see John Keatley's photo of Macklemore in amongst the chosen photography winners!
Because it's never too late, I have an Etsy store up and running! Woohoo. This should be an easier way to order prints and greeting cards.
I've got my previous years Christmas cards up there as well, so if you're in need of some upcoming holiday greetings, I've got you covered!

Jill and Bernardo are getting married in an old-time schoolhouse, and I got to make their chalkboard Save the Date!
Fall has arrived at the Soundbridge window! Walk by Benaroya if you are in downtown Seattle to enjoy a taste of the the season. Listen carefully and you can hear the music. :)
Fun with logo design for a friend's painting company.
If you are in the Seattle area and you need someone to come paint your house (inside or outside), let me know and I can connect you!
I recently happened upon an interesting salvaged art challenge: Second Use Building Materials (a salvaged materials building supply store in Seattle) is hosting an art and design competition. The challenge was to make something from a tropical knee brace (see below).
I put three of these together to make a horse and rider and covered them with an "armor" of recycled materials. A coat of spray paint helped to make that armor a little shinier. It was a fun challenge to work a little bigger than I've been in the habit of working.
If you're in Seattle and want to visit him, he'll be on display at Second Use's fall fest, this Saturday, September 20th. There should be some other fun activities happening there as well.
Check back to Facebook soon for an opportunity to vote/like Lancelot.

The Seattle Times is hosting a newsprint art contest, so I submitted Greensleeves. You can find it in their 2014 gallery here:
If you have trouble viewing it through that site, you can always see it on here:
A friend this summer asked me to design a rose tattoo for her shoulder. She liked my doodles, so I proceeded to doodle a rose for her. This is the result! So much fun to see my work translated onto the canvas of a body.
