New Card Line

I took my designs from the 100 day project and developed a card line. At first I was going to print them out and sell directly and wholesale. After looking into it I decided to sell digital downloads. I have had my own creative business before and I realize that I enjoy projects more that running a product based business. You can find all my cards in my etsy shop

Developing Patterns

I love minimalist patterns. Here are a few I am working on.

Business card for a friend.

My friend Michelle always makes me laugh and she has a style all her own. I wanted to make a calling card that reflected her personality and according to her I accomplished my goal!

Summer in the Pacific Northwest is the best! 

 

Posh Llama

 

I just opened an etsy shop called Posh Llama.  You can purchase prints of my illustrations. If you see an illustration you like that is not in the shop, please contact me. Thanks for taking a look!

 

Brand Style Guide

 

A friend asked me to design a logo for her fitness business. Here is the brand style guide I put together. 

 

Client Work

 

Here are some designs I did for clients.  I really enjoyed designing the illustration for the women's retreat. I love the colors. 

 

Process

 

I usually start my designs by cutting paper. Sometimes I find it easier than drawing. The duck ended up as a design but with a different color palette. I used some of the shapes and flowers in another design. I didn't end up using the entire composition. I really like using paper because the shapes can end up a surprise.

Peppermint Bark

Every year I make peppermint bark for Christmas. It is by far my biggest weakness. I use both dark chocolate and white chocolate. My favorite is the white chocolate. I think if I just used white chocolate I would eat the entire batch.

I use a bag of Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Chips and Guittard White Chocolate Chips. I melt the chocolate separately and then swirl them together. Then I add crushed candy canes on top. After it has dried just break into pieces and put into a cello bag with ribbon and you have a gift!
