Recently I’ve been obsessing over hand lettering and wanted to give it a try. The perfect opportunity came along when I decided to create a piece original artwork for a friend’s baby shower. I illustrated the quotation below and had it printed on canvas for the baby’s nursery.
I sketched this owl a few months ago and when a co-worker resigned I decided it would make a perfect going-away card. I colored the sketch in Photoshop and added some playful typography to complete the design.
I designed this card a few weeks ago to show some love for all the special ladies in my life. The flower elements were sketches that I scanned. Then I composed and colored the elements in Photoshop with a muted pallet to compliment the design.
I’ve been amid a whirlwind of projects lately. Here’s one I’m especially excited about! I utilized some illustrations from my Woodland Wonders collection to create these adorable baby shower invitations. Originally I designed the illustration in an aqua color scheme, but when I found out the couple was having a girl I opted for a more feminine pallet. Below is the invitation sent to guests as well as a thank you postcard to be sent after the event. The elements of the my previously created pattern collection worked together along with fanciful typography to create these charming designs.
I’ve had quite a few freelance projects recently that have kept me from posting. I took a break from it all though to create a postcard to thank a few special people. This spring inspired design is fresh, whimsical and was so much fun to create!
The deadline for the latest Tigerprint design competition is nearly here and I just finished up my entries! The design brief asked that a love themed surface pattern collection be created with an exciting new color palette. I used the shape of a heart as my initial building block and my patterns grew from there. Next I worked on some typography that would become the centerpiece of the greeting card I created to compliment the other 4 patterns.
