Happy New Year's Eve

2012 was a pretty good year. Instead of working on resolutions, I'm spending NYE thinking about what I want to accomplish in 2013:

1. Draw. Draw. Draw. 

2. Slow down. 

3. Put more of my art out into the world. (See below.)

4. Laugh more. 

5. Take more day trips. 

In honor of #3, here's a little 2013 calendar I put together. Feel free to print, but if you share please be kind enough to credit.

Happy New Year!

For years I've wanted to do a '365' of something. But nothing ever caught my fancy enough for the commitment. Until now. 

I recently enrolled in an online class for Surface Pattern Design: The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design, found here: It has totally opened my eyes to the possibility of my art and how it can be used. Art CAN be functional AND awesome AND unique, all at the same time. 

This will be my place for daily creations, as well as design-y things that catch my eye. Enjoy the ride.

See you soon!
