I’m going to an SCBWI conference in March and working on some new things to add to my portfolio. My goal is to eventually turn this into an alphabet book. Here is the first page! If you are interested in following my process, you can find more videos and in process photos on my Instagram (@lisajohnstonhancock) and Twitter (@LisaJHancockArt) accounts. Give me a follow and see what I’m up to! Thank you friends. 😉
My newest work titled “Star Crossed Lovers” is an experimentation with surrealist elements and symbolism. Deer are known to represent sensitivity and gentleness.
These two love birds are now on sale for 20% off through Valentine’s Day! They would make the perfect gift! Click on “Shop” for more information. Thank you friends!
This is a sketch that I created with some of my new sketchbox materials and loosely inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt. The doe is actually cut from a piece of paper that my 4 year old painted. Shhhh, don’t tell her. I really want to make more collage pieces like this. It SOLD and is framed and ready for a new home!
Hello! Well I finally did it and I’m testing the waters to see what you all think. I have been throwing around the idea of having some t-shirts printed for awhile now. It makes sense to put something out there that is functional and beautiful. 😉 If you are interested in one of these super soft and cozy shirts you can purchase one through my web site shop. Marnee’s Studio will also be carrying some of these shirts very soon at www.marneestudio.com. My sleeping fawn illustration is printed on the front, with my small logo on the back and it comes in Green, Grey or Brown S,M,L & XL Adult sizes. I’m also working on some things for youth shirts so stay in touch! Thank you for your support! You can purchase online or in person and we ship!
I thought I would share a little bit about my process today. When painting forest scenes, branches, pine needles etc., I like to use a #1 round brush and a liner brush. The round brush is great for creating varying sizes in the branches and I really like to use the liner brush for the spindly pine needles. They also work great when painting fur or whiskers.

Registration for Winter classes is now open at Marnee’s Studio, a new art gallery in midtown Mobile, AL. I will be teaching two classes, Capturing the Natural World (a watercolor class) and Drawing the Delta, beginning on January 22.
We made a promotional video so I could introduce myself. 😉 You can register by clicking on the link below. I hope that you can come draw and/or paint with me this winter/spring! Its warm in the studio and we have been known to serve coffee and even (spoiler alert) hot chocolate!
We actually had a good amount of snow in Alabama last weekend. I’ve never seen a snowy forest but I would like to imagine that it looks something like this. Here is another post for #illo_advent. Peace, love and joy everyone.
Wishing you a very happy holiday season filled with peace, love and joy!
I created this illustration just in time for Day 5 of #illo_advent. If you are not familiar with the illustration initiative, it was created by Penny Neville Lee and you can find more information through her twitter feed. https://twitter.com/PennyNevilleLee What a great idea!
