More design work!

I’ve been doing some design work for the always awesome Our Labor of Love. Shown here is my illustration-attack to their lovely feature in the Vineyard Gazette. They wanted me to go buck-wild, so I went buck-wild.

Such fun. Check their whole feature out in all of its glory over on their blog! Whitney and Jesse are such a talented pair.

Word.

Mmhmm.

Pugtastic

I just finished a blog design for Kelly. She is pretty much the queen of pugs, and wanted illustrations of her pugs (and bugg!) incorporated into her new blog. So I took the puppies to the citrus circus. Simple + fun, but still a little out there. I’m a fan.

Go check her site, kjpugs.com, out. She’s hilarious.

Too legit to quit.

Yesterday, I was a good girl and made some business cards printed on 110 lb. cotton stock. Such thick and delicious paper.

Fun stuff. Now I just have to get the courage to actually hand these puppies out.

Let me do it!

I’m in the process of launching a full-blown and way-less-ghetto-than-this-post site, but due to recent inquiries, I thought I’d do a quick little list of what I’m available to do.

Recent design work!

Despite all of the recent chaos, I’ve been quite the busy bee. (Pun not entirely intended). I just finished up two blog designs for two delightful ladies, and they were a truck-ton of fun to create.

First up is Katie’s blog, Ruffles and Truffles.


She wanted ruffles integrated in somewhere, but pretty much gave me free reign to do whatever, and, well, I did! Top ruffle, bottom ruffle, stripes, circles, banner… Fun stuff. Go and read her awesome blog!

Next up is Colleen’s new blog, There comes a yes.

Colleen and I are partners in crime, so I took her pink and turquoise request and ran with it. I know she is a giant lover of chevrons, and I’m convinced that the flame-stitch will be the new chevron, so I did a chevron-flame-stitch lovechild. Hard lines + bold colors + fun script + classic serif = good times. Go visit her blog. You won’t regret it.

Whew!

If you’re interested in procuring my design services, shoot me an email!

A massacre.

This is what happens when you become utterly obsessed with coming up with a useable logo that makes any sense. You start coming up with things that end up looking… well, like this. It was originally going to be someone yelling hearts. Loving much and all that.

F-a-i-l. (Text added for dramatic and frustrated effect after realizing the fail.)

Till next time…
