So that time I did two Halloween windows and never talked about them. Here we go!
These ghosts!!! I know, crazy spooky scary. This was my Halloween window for the Rare Device//Noe Valley store. It had to be done rather quickly, so I stitched up these ghosties. I kept the gold diamonds that were up with the Cactus window because, why not, they’re cool. I like this last photo, it looks like they’re having a party and they”re singing.
I hung up my original creepy girl drawings at the Divisadero store. It was probably the simplest installation I’ve done, but it still took me forever. (People who install quickly, so impressed with you.) I also printed up some postcard sets and 8 x 10 prints.
I have the best boss who took my whole team to 3 Fish Studios for a work retreat! We spent all day carving out our drawings and learning how to make these print reliefs. Literally all I ever want to do is spend all day with a bunch of lovely people (in an amazing space, like Eric and Annie’s!) and work on art work together. It was the coolest!
I knew I needed something a bit more graphic for carving, and decided on carving this doodle of a pink haired lady I had drawn a while ago. Here’s a few versions:
This was so fun and I really like the idea of incorporating this technique in future projects. After refining this pink lady a bit, it inspired me to work on some of my other pink lady doodles. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come!
I love making and sending Valentines! I’m so happy with these, I think they’re the cutest!
I’m trying to be better about sending out holiday cards this year! I always send out Valentines, so hopefully I can keep up the momentum.
Have the happiest day!!!
Hardly Strictly Bluegrass was this past weekend! It was crazy hot and insanely crowded!
Note to self: Print this pattern on shirts and sell to festival goers.
Looks like I’ll be bombarding ya’ll with more pugs in flower crowns all the way through the winter!
I can’t believe it’s already October! And it’s so hot outside today!! I could only handle 30 minutes at Baker Beach before bailing for shade and iced drinks. So when better than this beautiful, sunny day to start some new Creepy Portraits for Halloween!
I sat outside my favorite coffee house (in full shade of course) and started my fifth creepy portrait. Here’s an in progress look:
I had so much fun doing these last year! I didn’t think of the series until the last few days of October, so hopefully I’ll have several more done this time around. Here’s Creepy Portrait #1, #2, #3, and #4.
Roos graduated from the Academy of Art with a degree in Character Animation last month. I made his graduation announcements (a bit too late) but I thought I would share. I knew that he’d like something minimalistic and I wanted to include the tools of his trade. Here’s the front:
He actually just made his own Thank You notes and they look amazing! He has a great eye for design. I’ll share those soon too!
Congratulations, any recent graduates!
I’ve been playing with this piece (from my Something Graphic post) since it’s so easy to change into some of my favorite colors:
I’ve been experimenting with typography and design lately.
Check out what I’ve done so far. Inspiration credits to Doctor Who, Fiona Apple, and daily musings.
