10 Commandments for a Healthy Holiday Season - Philadelphia Magazine

Michele Melcher

Well, we are now into November and daylight savings time ended yesterday so the season of indulgence is drawing nigh! Here's a fun piece that I did for Philly Mag to accompany the article, "10 Commandments for a Healthy Holiday Season", by Adjua Fisher. So celebrate, have that cheesecake...but don't forget the cardio! As always, a big shout out to Alyse for the Art Direction!

"FAMILIAR" at Modern Eden Gallery

Michele Melcher

This Friday, November 3rd is the opening of "Familiar", at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, California. In European folklore and folk-belief of the Medieval and Early Modern periods, familiar spirits (sometimes referred to simply as "familiars" or " animal guides") were believed to be supernatural entities that would assist witches and cunning folk in their practice of magic. My piece titled, "Mercy and Giles", will be on display and available through the gallery. The show runs from November 3rd thru December 1st.

  • Title: Mercy and Giles.
  • Medium: Graphite and watercolor on Stonehenge paper
  • Size: 8.5"x15.75" antique wooden frame.
  • Year: 2017

Masking Out

Michele Melcher

October is upon us! Which means Halloween is right around the corner. This illustration for the October issue of Main Line Today is for the article, "Masking Out - How we put on different faces all year long", written by Katie Kohler.  The story talks about the idea of not dressing up for Halloween anymore because people already wear different masks on social media for 365 days of the year in order to get more likes and comments.

NOTE: (Personally, I think I'll still dress up for Halloween until I'm at least 92)
