This week’s colors look a little like something you would probably have seen in my mom’s eyeshadow palette from 1991, but let’s go with it.
This weekend, for the first time in forever, it rained. And rained, and rained, and rained. The timing couldn’t have been any more perfect. There is still a lot of work to do before winter (ew) gets here, but I was so content to stay inside to catch up on some designing and eating someRead more
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that it’s not uncommon to see a black marker drawing composed of song lyrics when I post a #sketchaday. I’ve been in the graphic design game for a while, but I have recently felt the urge to revisit my drawing roots – something to do to feedRead more
Fall is almost here. Crap. Not that I dislike autumn. It’s really one of my favorite times of the year. It’s just that our summers are so short around here that it always makes me a little sad to see the the first leaves start to fall. The kids go back to school next weekRead more
My girls are all makers. They come by it naturally – their mother is a designer and their father is a mechanic. It has taken a long time, but I have recently come to realize that my little family of five has more in common than I realized. We all tinker. Take things apart. MakeRead more
I’ve been spending a lot of time recently thinking about how art and design outside of my day job fit into my life. With thinking like that comes writing, sketching, painting, and the like.

Living in a dated house comes with its challenges. Lucky for us, our home is structurally sound – it’s just that some of the rooms here and there need a little facelift. This time around, my oldest daughter’s bedroom was up for a makeover. She has a birthday coming up and I thought I may beRead more
This is, admittedly, not the greatest quality photo in the world. I took it on my phone about a year ago and I’ve been holding onto it since then, waiting for inspiration to strike. I think this needs to be a painting, but this will have to do for now.
Color Crush is a little something I used to do way back when I was blogging before. There are a lot more sophisticated ways to do this these days (and I’ll get into that in another blog post – seriously, it’s so much easier than it used to be to create color palettes) but IRead more
When I was younger, I used to drive my family absolutely crazy with my constant stream of questions. We couldn’t get through a movie on a Saturday night without me wanting to know how they made movies, how they memorized their lines, and how long they had to wear that makeup for. And don’t evenRead more
