How AWESOME is this? I was so humbled and excited to find out that I was selected to be included in the new Uppercase Magazine Surface Pattern Design Guide! Then I see that 2 of my patterns even made it into the video. (Also - that is my friend Jan (from Making Art that Sells) image on the front cover.) Do watch the whole thing. It's very interesting – but I am at 2:23!
If you follow this section of my website, you will see that I have slowly been expanding my graphic design to include more illustration and surface pattern design. I can not tell you how great it feels to have some validation that you are making a good decision and going in the right direction.
They will be giving out 1500 copies of this special issue out at Surtex in May. While I am not exhibiting this year, it feels wonderful that my work will have a minor presence amongst all the greatness that promises to be there. I do plan to walk the show and am looking forward to lots of inspiration and beautiful artworks and meeting up with folks I have only known through Facebook over the past year.
Lastly - i do have a coupon code for $15 off a new Uppercase magazine subscription: "USPDG2014" I LOVE my subscription and reference it often. / #patternsplease
