I have been experimenting with some different drawing styles lately. I read a fantastic bit put out by Lilla Rogers about how to make good vector art. It was pretty great.
So here is a madmen-ish dude. I’m not entirely sure I dig it but I understand what she was saying and will be working on developing a more distictly “my own” style. I’ve probably been more on the safe side when illustrating, I should really just tear loose and see what comes of it. Stay tuned.
The Market Place is now open!!!! Go there and check out all the rad new patterns!
And look I’m right up at the top! Ba-zing!
Hey ya’ll, I know it’s been a while but I’ve moved! I accepted a new job with what appears to be a GREAT company out in Grand Haven MI. The relocation was rough, as all relocation’s are. Lots of work and more work and very stressful. I am still very tired.
Its also been hard for me adjusting without my family so near. I miss them all dreadfully. I miss my dog Rocco and my little baby chickens.
But I am learning to love my little home more and more each day. It is a smallish apartment that my mother has wonderfully redecorated with garage sale finds and made totally beautiful!
So far I have set the smoke detector off three times. But their was no smoke so I don’t know what was going on!
I also made a little pizza on a stoneware platter. I let it cool for a minute and they slid it onto a cutting board. Moments later I proceeded to pick up the blazin’ hot plate to carry tot the sink. It was actually a few inches off the stove top before I realized my hands were on fire!!! Haha, no burns though, just bloody hott!!!
I am 9 minutes from work and am anticipating bringing a bike up and riding some time. Though with the weather getting steadily hotter I don’t want to wide up at work a sweaty mess! Yuck!
So for now I just take my car and am there in a jiff.
I am really loving my job. It just seems to good to be true, but it IS true! They people are wonderful and the work is inspiring. The HR rep wrote the loveliest introductory e-mail about me. It just warmed my heart all the way through.
I am happy to be here and hope to bring you lots more cool projects that I get up too. Hopefully I’ll have more time to blog.
