Illustrations by Nancy C. Sampson

Posts from the ‘Park Slope Reader’ category

I hope you’re all enjoying 2011, and getting back to the daily grind isn’t too painful. I’m proud to report that The Nancydraws Shop did more business this Christmas season than last year, which was my first year. Thanks to everyone who made a purchase and passed the word along!

I also have an illustration in the current Winter issue of the Park Slope Reader. The article my artwork goes with is about cooking with butternut squash. One of the recipes is for Thai Butternut Squash soup and I ended up making it in tandem with my illustration. Delicious… I wonder if it affected my creative skills for this piece.

I have some new ideas for the Nancydraws Shop for 2011; I’ll let you know when I post my birthday card designs for sale.

Until then, I hope you stay healthy and happy.

Every few months, I have a couple of restaurant review illustrations in the Park Slope Reader, a free, local publication available in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. In lieu of payment for my most recent work for them I asked for ad space for The Nancydraws Shop in the Winter/Holiday issue. That issue hit the streets today! Here’s my ad:

In this issue, I illustrated Fonda, a great new home-style Mexican restaurant and Baluchi’s Park Slope location, which serves Indian cuisine.

Here’s a link to places that carry the magazine so you can pick up a copy:

I have yet to get my hands on the Winter issue myself, but I intend to find one on my way home from work tonight.
