I recently saw this book on Amazon and it caught my eye. It’s called Graphic: Inside the Sketchbooks of the World’s Great Graphic Designers. I’m pretty intrigued and am thinking about purchasing it at the end of the month. The reviews on Amazon and this blog post give you a glimpse as to what&
I spend a lot of time all of my time on Pinterest. If you don’t have Pinterest, comment below and I’ll try to send you an invitation. Seriously, you need to be on it. Anyways, they recently updated their logo and I absolutely love it. Here it is before, along with a sketch/graphic during the proces
With this whole 30 Day Drawing Challenge…I realized that I could just do the challenge (crappy drawings and all) or I could really try to create a style within my sketches. I am by no means an illustrator but as a designer I think it’s important to be able to convey your ideas on paper […]
We’re packing a lot in this weekend. Off to Chicago to see family, friends, friend’s beautiful baby boy, and try to shoot film. I’m ending this week fully exhausted so maybe I can catch a few zzzz’s on the way up there. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for being patient while I compile lots
I was approached by David Bushell, a designer based out of London, last month and he asked me to be a part of xheight. A portion of his email read: The concept of “what design means to you” would mean writing about your personal theory and experience in design. Nothing practical or directly relating
I took my portfolio site down awhile ago and set a date for a relaunch. “April 1st,” I thought. It seemed far enough away. So much time to get super awesome clients and photograph my work professionally…maybe even get pictures taken of myself so I look really cool and pretty?! April Fools Day, ME.
My wonderful friends (Josh and Megan Cook) have created a blog! It’s called He Makes She Makes and it’s a place where they’ll share inspiration and creative loveliness. I’m so excited to see all the posts they have planned and I’d suggest you add them to your blog-reader-of-choice.

I’m excited and honored to be a part of 20 Best Twenty for the next two months. As stated on their site, “20 Best Twenty reveals the best designs, premier pieces, and unique products from independent makers across the globe. Every two months, 20 new items in 20 unique categories will be highlighted
Work is pouring in, I hardly have a moment to remember to sit up straight (finally seeing a chiropractor next week) but I’m staying inspired. I like making lists so here is my current, random list: 1. Only take creative clients. 2. It’s okay to say no. 3. CTRL+S OFTEN. No, CONSTANTLY. 4. Spend more
I’m excited to be working with Team Cbus. What’s #teamcbus? Here’s a little excerpt from their website: What’s better than five friends in a car? Five friends in a Chevy, on their way to South by Southwest in Austin, TX competing against 10 other teams across North America, and doing work fr
I was perusing the Interwebs for some floral inspiration and realized that when done well, it can be a really beautiful thing. Growing up painting and drawing, I always had people ask me on the spot, “Hey draw something right now….on this napkin!” And I’d be thinking in my head, “W
Around mid-March I’ll be teaming up with The Rogue Magnolia to photograph my printed pieces. I’m excited about her creativity and extremely talented approach to photography. Here are a few pieces that have inspired me when it comes to my future shoot! Obviously they’re all very different so I&
After collaborating a few times here in Columbus, participating in an awesome photoshoot, and meeting such talented professionals, ALL I WANT TO DO IS COLLABORATE. Of course, as an artist, I enjoy working by myself as an individual artist but something within just wants to share the experience. SO, if this idea
I judge books by their cover. That also goes for albums and their artwork. I pinned this image on Pinterest awhile ago and then went to the source. Commence dancing booty in my chair. It took me to Fiction Fred. I’m currently exploring the blog (by Fred, a graphic designer from Cape Town, South Africa). [
