Updated my portfolio with some new work - this was a fun lettering project for a promotional tote explaining meta data for e-books.
I’ve worked on so many long-term projects in the last few months, I can’t wait to share it all… In the meantime, I’m back from my self-imposed year off from craft sales and will be showing new hand made goodies at the Bazaar Bizarre Boston on December 16th as well as my Etsy shop as soon as I can, stay tuned!
Here’s a tiny peek of a new project I just finished up. Fun fact: a version of this illustration started its life as a rejected sketch for a different project. I can’t wait to share how the whole thing turned out!
Came home to find my new SkinIt design for iPad in the mail! You can buy one here for iPad & iPhone.
My spread in Charlotte Rivers I Heart Stationery book - tons of great illustrators are featured, including Jill Bliss, Gemma Correll, and Jen Collins. The book is organized by the different techniques of each artist. I’m honored to be included!
Just received the sample of the new graduation greeting card/mobile I illustrated for Papyrus! You can check it out on the Papyrus site here.
Process Post: Save the Bay
I was asked by art director Ellen Dessloch to create an original thank you card illustration for Save The Bay, a Rhode Island-based environmental organization that protects the Narragansett Bay region. This was a fun project to work on so I thought I would share my process for the assignment.
First I submitted three sketches, the first two going off of specific direction that the organization requested. The third I decided to add in - the coastline is from a sketch I did in Bristol a few weeks prior. Bristol is a historic Rhode Island town that overlooks the bay - and also home to the oldest 4th of July parade in the country! To my surprise they went with the third option for the final. Ellen suggested that I change the direction of the copy - shorten the “Thank You” to “Thanks” and have the type flow from a different perspective. We also decided to add a sailboat and a fish to help balance out the bird and make the scene a bit more lively. I created two different color ways for the final - a fall palette and a bright palette. They ultimately chose the bright option with some color changes and I finished the image with some textures in Photoshop.
