New Illustration Deposit

My blogging has not been particularly regular this year, but I did want to share a bunch of new illustrations that I’ve got up in my portfolio.


Los-Angeles-Neighbors-Balcony-Watercolor-Illustration-Editorial-Michelle Kondrich


This first piece, in ink and watercolor, is based on an experience I had shortly after moving to LA when I finished college. I was working at the Getty Museum and made friends with a girl named Kristen. After being in orientation for a couple of weeks together I learned, by way of locking myself out of the apartment I was living in, that we we were not only neighbors but we shared a balcony in our apartment complex. We are still friends to this day even though we haven’t seen each other for a few years.









This series of illustrations went with an article written by a woman who went on several survival camping weekends.




And finally, this little spot editorial illustration was created as a reinterpretation of a recent New York Times OpEd piece called “Does My Virginity Have a Shelf-Life?” I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting with my technique and I’m really pleased with the direction my work is taking. Editorial illustration is such a fun challenge and I hope to be adding more of that to my client work in the months to come.

Recipe Comic Holiday Cards For Sale!



Many of you are probably already familiar with my recipe comics (if not, you can read them here). They are so fun to create that I thought I would do a couple of holiday recipes. I have now turned those holiday recipes into 2 accordion-fold greeting cards available for sale here.


These cards are a great way to go ┬áthat little extra step to show someone how much you care. Why’s that? Because these cards contain the ingredients and instructions for two full recipes, meaning the recipient can keep them and use them forever! They are delicious recipes that I have used at home on several occasions and I’m sure you will like them too.

The cards fold down to 4.5″ x 5.5″ and come with an A6 size envelope and shouldn’t need more than a standard stamp to mail. They are available now on Etsy – buy them in sets to get a bit of a discount on the price as well.
