After a few years of bopping around the country (from California to Virginia to Oregon to Virginia to Maryland to Texas to California to Utah!) I’ve landed temporarily in a beautiful little house with a beautiful little desk! As simple as that sounds it’s the first awesome inside studio space i’ve had in years. It’s an amazing space to work on my current series of illustrations and go through the rather large set of illos i’ve sporadicly created since 2012.
A few months ago while living in Yosemite National Park I was quite blown away by the works of the amazing woodcut artist Tom Killion. His art inspired me to dive back into the worlds of illustration and to focus on landscapes: something I’ve never done before. I’ve spent the past year working and backpacking in a few National Parks and now have quite a large personal photo collection of my travels that I share on Instagram under @brooke.appler. My new set of illos is a series of these landscapes: from Yosemite to the eastern Sierra to west Texas.
In addition to working on this new series, I’m slowly starting to re-sell my favorite little zines and cute little bicycle patches on etsy.com. Take a look, drop me a line, follow me on Instagram ❤
