Spring is here, which means wedding season is right around the corner! Not only are some of my close friends getting ready to say ‘I do’, I have a pair of amazing clients that are tying the knot this June as well! You may remember the Save the Date postcards I designed for Joe and Sin this fall (click the link for a refresher). Above are the final invites and info cards to go along with the floral inspired save the dates. These were a delight to work on, and for an awesome couple to boot!
Can I just say it… if Spring doesn’t come soon I may whither away. I’ve been seriously craving some sunshine. Unfortunately, living in the ‘Polar Vortex’, Spring/Summer (we go from Winter to Summer typically) is months away. In an effort to sooth my seasonal depression (not really, but almost) I decided to draw a little cutie frolicking through a Parisian park. She’s enjoying the Spring on my behalf I hope everyone is surviving their March so far – it seems like everywhere is fighting snowstorms, rainstorms, or bone-chilling cold right now… Let’s hope warm weather doesn’t take too long to come around!
2014 is knockin’ at the door, and I’ve been considering what my New Year’s resolution will be. Eating healthy and taking care of myself isn’t always my top priority as I rush from work to home and work again, and as you may have guessed from my recent artwork, I have a bit of a sweet tooth. 2014 will be the year of taking as much time for my health as I do for my career! I’ll be drinking more water, eating my veggies, and being more active – while still saving room for donuts, of course!
Here’s a broccoli champ to wish you luck with your New Year’s resolutions, whatever they may be!
For this Holiday season Target’s textile team decided to organize a Secret Santa. The rules were simple, we all drew names (like you do) and had a spending limit of $5 for the entire gift. This pretty much forces you to be creative with your gift giving. Below is the artwork I did for my secret santa – the $5 went towards little frames for these guys, and a lil something sweet.
Although they’re not very festive, I think these little guys will please their recipient. I hope everyone else is enjoying their Holiday season, and have enjoyed giving gifts to loved ones!
Seriously… I might be obsessed. That’s okay, right? Here are a few more donut inspired artworks. I’m working on a few more, so I’ll probably add to this post. There is no such thing as too many donuts, right?
Don’t forget the donut chart! Available for purchase here.
Who doesn’t love colorful dessert foods frolicking the snow? I know I’m a big fan! I’ve designed so many cards for clients and other people this year that I wanted to take some time to do something custom for myself. I had a lot of fun illustrating my submission for Lilla Rogers ‘Global Talent Search’ this Summer, and although I didn’t make it very far (or anywhere at all), I wanted to continue with the characters I developed for my journal!
Below are my sketches for this project. First loose in my sketchbook, and then a tighter sketch in Photoshop.
If anyone is interested in commissioning any cards, custom stationery, or save the date design please feel free to reach out!
Over the summer I was asked to illustrated a save the date postcard for Californian couple Joe and Sin. With their wedding reception being held in a garden, they wanted to play with the idea of a backyard picnic for their postcard, focusing mainly on floral elements. With the reference and art samples they gave me, I came up with a few sketches and color ways for them to choose from.
After a few emails back and forth we made the right decision for the couple, and below is their final postcard illustration!
Wondering what your baby (or dog) should rock this October? Check out these little cuties I designed with my team! We wanted some cute halloween costumes that were fun, but also wearable and comfy for the little ones. You can find them online or at your local Target. Look for these guys and two others on an end-cap in your baby section!
