Capricorn, painted
Although late, I think this Capricorn piece is perfect for the cold, snowy, winter day we've had (and been having a lot of!) in New York. Capricorns are Earth signs known for being practical, ambitious, patient, disciplined and reserved. On the not-so-nice side they can be moody, pessimistic and somewhat self-centered. The symbol associated with Capricorn is the Goat, and while my husband suggested I paint a girl eating a can to convey that point, I thought unusual goat eyes and some sturdy yet sexy gams would be a better choice.

I am a little late with this next Zodiac piece, and I blame the Christmas spirit! Actually, I did get caught up in holiday hub-bub and getting my new website in order, but hey– it's still Capricorn's time. (Don't pay any attention to that "new horoscope" nonsense.) Gotta get this one painted soon though; I wouldn't want the Capricorns to feel slighted!

Drum roll, please!

Announcing the new, improved, spectacular Erin Gallagher Illustration website! The new site features all of my recent illustrations, comics, graphic design and sketches– plus it will be updated frequently. Feel free to browse around and please let me know what you think!

I owe this fantastic example of modern technological wizardry to my friend, Rob Harrigan, who knows his way around code but also happens to love vinyl records, old fashioned cocktails and typography of the 60's. Rob [aka Undercard Productions] has done an awesome job and I highly recommend his services for all your website and design needs. Thanks again, Rob!

I've recently been going through a lot of my old files (getting them ready for something new and exciting!) and when I found my ol' Sandman tee shirt design I decided to revise it. I don't usually like to revise past work, but there were a couple of pieces that needed sprucing up. I created this design before I even knew how to use illustrator, so it wasn't nearly as clean as I'd like. Sandman being my favorite comic series of all time, I thought I'd better make it as good as possible.
Plus, I have it on pretty good authority that Neil Gaiman himself saw this design at a convention years ago and said he liked it! *melt*
