I love finding new illustrators and their talent. Each style is so unique or has something different that is inspirational to them. I recently found Beth Shirrel, whos style is so similar to mine. I really appreciate her work. And the colors? Oh my. Amazing. Beth teaches at Philadelphia University by day, but freelances by night. I would love to collaborate with her on a project! Totally dreamy.
See her entire portfolio here.
It is definitely summer in the Albany, NY area when you can venture to Lark Street for the one day each summer and experience the sounds of great music, delicious food, but most of all amazing creations by some of the area’s local art talent! From paintings and photography to sculpture and jewelry, there was something for everyone.
My husband and i ventured out on Saturday on our way to the lake to support the fun and also to support my friend Tara, creative mind behind of Tiane Novati Modiste. You might remember the giveaway she sponsored back in March? Well, she has grown leaps and bounds and had a gorgeous booth this past Saturday at Art on Lark. I nearly walked away with one of each! She designs the most gorgeous handmade accessories including belts, pins, headbands, and more. I love her dearly and admire her creativity and talent! I just know that one day she will be such a success! So next year, if you are in the area be sure to check this event out.
Here are a few photos from the day at her booth. Tara and I and photos of her goodies. It was so hot on Saturday so my husband and I were trying to make it to the lake for a swim, but it ended up raining later that day.
Happy Friday!A busy week is coming to an end! Lot of fun stuff going on here in the studio and i can’t wait to share! I’ll just have to keep you on the edge of your seat though. I have a busy weekend filled with fun and design too! Attending an art show, some swimming and creative goodies in process.
So…what is in store for you this weekend?
Here is the week in the quickest recap possible!
+ A beautiful fall color forecast from Pantone.
+ A new logo design for the USCC – something very different for me.
+ If you didn’t grab the free downloads yesterday, be sure to grab them today! Right here.
Have a terrific weekend and I hope it is filled with fun and laughter. Oh- and some relaxation too.
Can you really believe that the Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner? Yeah, me either!

Just go see my friend Cyd’s blog over at The Sweetest Occasion and get all of your downloads for free!
When i was approached to design a logo for the US Cyber Security Challenge, i was both excited and intimidated. My gosh, i design pretty, swirly, feminine pieces for weddings and business alike- however, i decided to take on the challenge. After all, i love design so i knew i could handle the task and i also am married to a security “nerd”. So…who better to research then interviewing my very own husband!
Obviously, not talking flowers, decor, dresses and color was a complete 180 for me, but i thoroughly enjoyed it. The team that I presented to had some concept of what they wanted. The biggest challenge was, that the website and other marketing materials were in the works, but i wasn’t able to see them. The timing of the logo and the web launch had to happen simultaneously, so in a sense i was designing blindly.
The logo needed to appeal to both men and women, both old and young alike. Feel hip, elite, yet catchy on a government level.
Alright fashionistas, brides-to-be and bridal party members alike, earlier this spring Pantone released the top color picks for the Fall of 2010. Feels weird saying that since today is the first official day of summer and the longest day of the year to boot! However, if you are still undecided about dress colors, flowers, and decor, perhaps some of these beauties will give you the nudge you need! Fall really isn’t that far away now.
They are all so gorgeous and many work so well together!
