Howdy Partner!

This here is the eclectic blog of artist/illustrator Ellen Stedfeld, for a glimpse into my kooky mind and to see some of the many things I do. You may find it helpful to note that this originated in 2008 as a place to display galleries of my artwork (still temporarily viewable at right) but has gradually taken on a more blog-like form, and my current objective - now in the midst of 2014 and entering 2015 - is to make it be so!

Since I get too busy actually doing things to talk about them all, I apologize for any lapses or anomalies in chronology. If you really want to know what I'm up to, visit me at Carmine Street Comics or my next event. Otherwise, enjoy!

Best Wedding Ever

July 2014

Why yes, that's a transformer in the foreground, holding their rings.

Spent this past Sunday helping at my friends Jon & Gaby's fantastic wedding, where we were quoted wise words from both Buddha and Mewtwo. The ceremony was casual, fun, and incredibly unique. To enhance their special day, they commissioned me and a few other artists to make pictures of their favorite things. Until I get some more photos up in here, this is what I made for them...

To greet the guests - Deadpool Jake and Mewtwo Finn

Don't go in without permission!

To encourage letting loose - an Adventure Time dance party!

To represent their children, who were unable to attend the celebration in person.
