Hello friends! As some of you may know, I've had the great fortune to add Jamberry to my growing list of lovely clients. I've been having so much fun creating nail art for them over the last few months, and it's a continual joy to see other people wearing art that once lived in my sketchbooks! They recently released their fall catalog, and a number of my designs are now available for purchase! You can find links to each of them below:
Hey there, friends! I'm excited to announce that I've started contributing weekly posts over on the Illustration Friday blog. I've written about 4-5 posts so far, and the experience has been really enjoyable. I love writing about art and sharing the work of some of the most exciting illustrators out there! I'm covering illustrators who use surface pattern in their work, and showcasing the products their patterns appear on in the hopes that this will inspire other artists to imagine new applications for their own art. I hope you'll follow along, and if you feel so inclined, I'm always open to feedback.
Last Fall I had the opportunity to work on some really fun projects for Crate and Barrel, and now they're starting to pop up in their stores! My time at Crate and Barrel was such an incredible learning experience - I felt myself grow as an artist every day I was there just from the sheer variety of projects I got to sink my hands into. It has helped to shape the work I am doing today. These cocktail recipe plates were one of my favorite projects, since bottles and drinking glasses are among some of my favorite things to illustrate.
I also did the lettering for these mugs (artwork on the other side was done by another artist), which was super fun. I've got a few more projects coming up in the next few months and I'll be sure to share them when they're available!
These are coming a little late, but here are a few photos from a wedding I had the pleasure of capturing back in September. The bride was gracious and calm, the groom was sweet and funny, and the day moved quite fast. I was second shooter to Giedre of Walking Dot Photography, and so my time was divided between assisting and shooting. I learned so much from her, observing her shooting style and how swiftly she handled the whole day. It's always inspiring and energizing to work with other creatives, and I truly believe only great things are birthed from collaboration.
