Song Lyrics

Where did I go?

Man oh man am I inconsistent or what??
No, but seriously…I do find it a struggle to post on here…which is why I haven’t in a while. I truly am not a writer nor do I know how to truly get this thing going…But in the mean time…Check out a quick doodl-eee-doo I made.

Any Crystal Fighters fans out there?
Well if you haven’t heard of them check ’em out! This is a lyric from their song You & I.

SeptemberQ1

My very delayed September Lunar Lettery.
I don’t believe this one needs much of an explanation…But just in case…I created the S letter form out of colorful leaves, inspired by my Adirondack surroundings.  I then scanned it in and colored in Illustrator.

I hope you enjoy!
Cheers!

October’s Lunar Letter

October_cloud

So here we are a month later! All Hallows Eve!!
This is my first successful Lunar Letter, however I will be posting  September’s very delayed Lunar Letter shortly.

October is such an exciting month. It has that eagerness of early autumn reaching for the holiday season to begin. The weather tends to get a bit dreary but we have Halloween to look forward to and then all the glory days afterwards.

October’s Lunar Letter Design

So I keep wondering if this is a bit of a stretch…but the O is supposed to be created with the arch of the Cat’s back, up along the tail and down to the head to make a full circle. If it is too much of a stretch how about that moon?? That is technically an O is it not?I am having so much fun doing this light hearted design project! I am trying out new techniques in illustrator and photoshop and learning quiet a bit! I also am constantly sketching. I have plenty of more months to go and plenty of sketches already started.

So what are peoples thoughts on my design? I absolutely love this adorable little cat!

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope everybody had a spooktacular day and even more frightening evening!

P.s. I am being a Tribal Lion for Halloween, but the party isn’t until saturday so photos will be posted this weekend!

Cheers!

So, I Quit My Job…

You did what?!?!

Yes, I know, I’m officially Looney…or LUNIE…LUNAR…get it?!?!

Okay, so the questions are, for what reason and why did I think I could?

Well I was unhappy where I was, a little frustrated/creatively stifled and needed a change. I have always been a creative person and know that I can do better than where I was. Success to me is being happy and I can’t be happy unless I am being a productive citizen and creating work I am truly proud of. Therefore, I am now freelancing and working a part time job. This was a very scary decision but necessary. I got the courage after watching this video.  If you have time checkout his other videos, they are inspiring, motivating and just fuckin awesome!

I love James Victore, I think that his outlook on life and how design fits into it is dead on. Life is too short to waste time doing things that you don’t absolutely love or doesn’t  bring you happiness.

Here is a quick diddy I made based off a quote from his website.

“We want to work with people and companies who believe that the status quo is not enough, that good work matters and that design can be a tool to affect opinions and culture.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself!
(however, I removed companies from the quote…)

So this is why I have been MIA, the last month has been a whirlwind but I am now free to post regularly and hope to do just that! So stay tuned….

20130928-082446.jpg
So it has been a looong week. Clearly I have been lacking in the post department…

Here is a preview of what this months Lunar Letter looks like. I will be posting the final piece later this weekend or Monday. Along with some process shots.

I would love to learn how to make a process video so I will be looking into that. Anyone have any suggestions/tips?

Well happy weekend everyone 🙂

Ciao

Sketches

Happy Autumn!

A quick sketch to digital. This didn’t even make it to illustrator so it is rather rough. However I think it captures autumn pretty well. Cheers to all the leaf peepin’, cider drinkin’, apple pickin’ days ahead!

Leave some comments if you have any critiques!!

Happy Autumn!
