Smash Book Complete!

I’ve never been good at scrap booking. I rush through it, excited to finish the project. Then, I’m upset that I didn’t spend more time to make the project more personal and detailed. Not this time. I did my own DIY version of a Smash Book (a type of non-scrapbook).

I’ve kept mementos from our trips over the last year and finally got to put them all together with pictures I took during the trips. This Smash Book covers our Ohio, New Jersey, and Chicago trips. I’m super excited about how it turned out.

As I worked on this book over the past weeks, it became an opportunity to not become a photo album of memories, but also a journal of the trip, a place for all the keepsakes I kept, and an opportunity to play with hand drawn type.

Excited for the next trip and more memory book opportunities.

All done!

Designing Update

Just a quick note.

I did a little design for Lindby to advertise that their songs are now on iTunes.

It it nice to check off one more thing on my growing list of “to do’s”

It is even nicer that I really like how this turned out!

Inspirational Awakenings: Line Work

The Devil is in the Details.

WRONG! Only awesome things are in the details. Probably stuff like frozen yogurt, string cheese, kittens, and sunflowers. I love work that has a ton of detail; line work, textures, illustrations. It adds so much depth and personality to a piece. Want to turn a doodle into a character design? Line work. Need that water painting to pop off the page? Hit it up with some Indian Ink. Here is a collection of Internet findings that have grabbed my attention and stolen my eyes lately.

Hopefully soon, all this inspiring work from other artists will switch my art gear from meh to YEA!

Well, it’s here!

My husband is in this band called Lindby, and this is the poster I have designed for their upcoming show in April!

And now I’m working on an album cover and another set of posters. So busy!
