Just finished, framed, and delivered this piece to the Coastline Art Gallery in Newport Beach. The drawing depicts the sixteen animals listed on the WWF’s “Critically Endangered” list, and will be featured in the “RIBBA 500” show, opening September 12th . #ashleybravin #art #drawing #artist #wwf #animals #watercolor #ink #ribba500 #coastlineartgallery

A sneak peek of the drawing I’m currently working on. Four compositional studies and a hell of a lot of caffeine have gotten me this far, and I’m hoping they’ll continue to carry me through into finishing the piece by Wednesday in time for the show. Needless to say, my hand feels like it’s on fire. #ashleybravin #drawing #artist #studio #art #ink #wwf #animals

When it comes to breaking promises to yourself and not going to bed at a reasonable hour, I’m what you might call a pro. #ashleybravin #studio #art #artist #studiolife

Working out the composition of a piece for an upcoming show with an insanely tight deadline. Thank all that is holy for photocopiers. #ashleybravin #drawing #studio #art #ink #sketch #animals #wwf

And so it begins. The studio is prepped, snacks are handy, and with the manuscript at my side, I’m ready to dive into illustrating “Larry the Leprechaun,” by Alexandra Hofmeister-Daly. #ashleybravin #illustration #studio #childrensbooks #gouache #art

After great success with “Pavo, Finding New,” I just signed a contract with Alexandra Hofmeister-Daly to start illustrating her next children’s book, “Larry the Leprechaun.”

Another little gouache painting that is undoubtedly the cause of my sunburns. This one was done just outside of Devils Postpile up in Mammoth. #ashleybravin #sketchbook #painting #sketch #art #artist #hiking #devilspostpile #mammoth (at Devils Postpile National Monument)

A little gouache painting that I had to finish prematurely due to the looming, rain-saturated clouds and booming thunder. So far, I am loving it here. #ashleybravin #sketchbook #gouache #painting #drawing #sketch #art #mammoth (at Mammoth Lake)

Got my art supplies in order. Mammoth, here I come. #ashleybravin #hiking #sketchbook #mammoth #artist

Enjoying an excellent cup of coffee and some sketching over breakfast at L’Amande, a wonderful French bakery off of PCH. #ashleybravin #sketchbook #drawing #sketch #breakfast #coffee (at L’amande Bakery)

Sam, my ever-trusty (and sleepy) studio dog, keeping me company as I break in my new sketchbook. #ashleybravin #studio #studiodog #dog

A little piece I made, inspired by one of my favorite books, Mark Z. Danielewski’s “House of Leaves.” #ashleybravin #houseofleaves #danielewski #book #typography #quote

After wrestling with wrinkled tarps, indecipherable ikea furniture instructions, and a load of boxes, my new studio is finally coming together. #ashleybravin #studio #artist #art #paint #ikea

Part 2/2 of the sketchbook studies I did at LACMA’s “Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky” exhibition. These drawings are are brought to you by the overpriced pack of crappy colored pencils I reluctantly bought from the gift shop. #ashleybravin #LACMA #expressionism #art #sketchbook #drawing #sketch (at LACMA Los Angeles County Museum of Art)
