As I’ve been updating my site and going through files, I realized I never got samples for these lenticular stickers I designed years ago. Ordered on Amazon and a day later, they’re here! Weee. Fun! I used to LOVE lenticular story books when I was a kid so this brings back fond memories.
OK, I never really got far with the blog when I first built this site. Let’s give it another go, shall we?! Here’s just a small snippet from a layout I did for American Girl Magazine. It’s teeny tiny in the magazine so I thought it might be nice to have a closer peek
It's 2015! I've moved into a new apartment!! I'm looking for a new job!! I am completely embracing change with an open heart! A brand new start in 2015!!!
One of my career-related resolutions for 2015 is to strike a better balance - to work hard but also make time for exploration and for fun. Sometimes we get so bogged down with deadlines and chasing checks that we forget to stop and have a little fun. I'm guilty of spending WAY too much time at my computer but not always making the best use of my time. So, I will be setting work hours and trying my best to keep at them. Most of the time, anyway. Then, when work's done for the day - it's time for all those other things that nurture growth and skill. On the art front, I want to play with new tools, take classes, and draw, draw, draw! I want to create more personal work which I have not done in many years. I'm aching to paint and draw and get my hands dirty!! Get crafty too! And I also want to do a better job of getting my work out there which includes keeping an active blog and limited (yet effective!) promoting on social media. So, that's the plan!! And so it is!
The above drawing was drawn a couple weeks ago using the Kyle T Webster photoshop brushes I'd bought some time ago and never got around to downloading. They're great! What was I waiting for!!?! I cannot wait to play with them a lot more.
Wishing everyone a fun, happy, prosperous and healthy 2015.
always with the doodling.
It's been a busy couple of months but for the past week and half or so I've been busting out drawings for the fourth and final Enchanted Sister's book series. It's almost 2/3 completed !! AND I really needed to get out and away from my computer for a little bit. So, what did I do? I went to Starbucks to journal and doodle. Nothing much really but it was good to get away. I think I need to do this more often.
Hello. Welcome to my brand new blog! Here's a picture of my most wonderful dog, Gracie.
