Lemonade, please!

What could be more summery than a cute little lemonade pattern? Today is the last day to vote for this week's fun Spoonflower theme. This design will be available to purchase as fabric, gift wrap or wallpaper as soon as I approve the color. Wouldn't it make a darling dress for a sweet little girl? If only I could sew!

MATS Bootcamp Month 5 - Digital Nomad

I'm sad to say, it's the end of Make Art That Sells Bootcamp 2015 with Lilla Rogers. For our final assignment we had to illustrate an article about succeeding as a digital nomad—that is someone who works remotely from anywhere in the world. Editorial is a bit tough for me. As a logo designer, I tend to edit everything down to simple shapes and ideas. I find the editorial market a place for lush illustrations that are complex, layered and conceptual.

As always, I had lots of ideas. But in the end, I decided to illustrate what I would do if I were a digital nomad. And that is, surround myself with flowers, the outdoors, and friendly wildlife.

A second concept I began to execute was a woman trekking around the globe, as she is plugged in to the digital world. I think collage or a different style would have strengthened this idea, but it was fun to try.

Dad's Day

Inspired by dads everywhere! Ties and fish. Work and play. I'll be sending this pattern to my Spoonflower Shop shortly. Perfect for wrapping paper or bathing trunks, don't you think?
