In 2023, Andrea Tripke was awarded 3 rd place for Illustration in the Rising Kite awards. The theme for the illustration was “Hold on and Don’t Look Down.” The illustration was done in mixed media (acrylics, oil colors and colored pencils) on cold pressed illustration board.
I have been busy printing and finally got to frame a few of my few of my new prints as well. This is a relief print “Beach Parasols” on “natural” colored stonehenge paper, size 11.25×18″ ( just the printed area). I got the idea for the image sitting in a local beach bar looking over

Pinocchio is my latest illustration in mixed media on illustration board. The task was to have ‘Kaleb’ – the little boy – being part of a fairy tale. I thought he would be the perfect counterpart for Pinocchio. Because Pinocchio is still “just” a string puppet I have another string puppet play with him –
