I haven’t been very creative lately – or anything, really, except lazy (maybe “relaxed” is a nicer word). But I’ve done a few projects since my last post about commissions.
For Jarom’s birthday, I made this lemony quote from Portal 2. I haven’t played the game, so I can’t comment on that, but I worked really hard on making something Jarom would love. It’s hanging in an awesome frame (and hand-painted mat!) in his office, so I guess he likes it well enough.
Overall I still looooooove these baby shower invitations I did for my friend Bridget.
My friend Kimberlee’s daughter had a pink poodle-themed first birthday party.
I got to design my own alphabet of drop caps for the four-volume hardcover edition of Spark. Go me!
This wasn’t my original idea for our 2013 Christmas cards – I hoped to actually screen print a folk design – but I ended up with this cross stitch-inspired card.
I did these for a fellow babyloss mom (surely there is another term, but I usually say “Dead Baby Club buddy” and that’s maybe worse) when she and her husband were able to adopt a baby boy last year. Hooray!
One of my favorite quotes: “There is adventure in simply being among those we love.” From one of my favorite series (The Prydain Chronicles). Unfortunately, I hate my handwriting! It just looks so . . . unpracticed.
My brother- and sister-in-law had me design 2 baby announcements: this narwhal and the hedgehog below.
OH MY CUTE.
I had hedgehogs in my dream last night. They were not nearly as cute as yours were. But I like the narwhal even more!
Really? I’m a much bigger fan of the hedgehog than the narwhal.
What, the lemon rant? Yeah…for authenticity.
I say throw them back! And add some lemons of your own! I really like the lemon rant. A lot. I keep waiting for Austin or Max or Bekard to show up on one of these.
