So, the Making Art that Sells class I took back in July and part B which starts up again in a few short weeks (yay!) has made me do all sorts of things...
First it made me make CRAZY amounts of awesome artwork in 6 short weeks...
Aftwewards, I purchased some video seminars from Surtex, as Lillas class made me realize I would like to build up a portfolio for licensing and surface pattern design.
Then to keep the creative juices flowing, I signed up for a fabulous and fun painting e course (currently in progress) called Daring Adventures in Paint. Here are a few of my favorite in progress paintings.
Then I ran my first half-marathon. (Wait - that's not related... but I wanted to share!)
And today I am in a blog parade... It's all due to a wonderful (and private - sorry!) group which exists only online, and has emerged from the Making Art the Sell / Lilla Rogers' e-course. This international group of like minded artists has provided wonderful feedback and support and has been a valuable resource during and since the course. I have friends & supporters from all around the globe and it is a wonderful and vibrant - and ÜBER ÜBER ÜBER TALENTED - community.
I thought I would use this post as an opportunity to share here a few things I've been working on.
Some recent design projects include: a few small brochure projects for Haverford College, a logo refresh for a NY law firm, a brochure for a company which specializes in home renovations, a poster for a public art project celebrating Mental Health recovery, a brochure for the awesome Fairmount & Queen Village Art Centers (in Philly) and last but my NO means least, a super fun illustration project!
This family fun guide / map of Media, PA was something I Illustrated for the new issue of Main Line Parent magazine. That was a pretty fun job, as well as a labor of love!
Thanks for reading my words & please now get your little mouse or wacom pen & head on over to Julia's blog (aka MOOGBEE)! Julia is a super nice and super talented artist who also lives in the fine state of Pennsylvania.
Happy Monday Everybody!
