I love working with these little bite sized designs! Grab yourself a button in my Etsy shop, only 2 bucks!
I’ve been having some fun with patterns and colors. Sometimes these prints take me ages to do, I just can’t stop trying different arrangements and colors! This Boxer print is available in my Etsy shop.
Hot & fresh! New buttons I put up in the shop this morning.
Here’s another cool Skillshare class, this time taught by Aaron Draplin. I adore his design work, it’s simple but awesome. I picked up a few of the Field Notes memo books he designed and always have one kicking around with me. Check out the memo book archive – all that vintage design is scrumptious!
In this logo design class we were instructed on how to use simple shapes and type to create a family crest. I learned how to keep it simple and really work on the shapes and negative space. My crest includes a hummingbird to symbolize determination, a drafting compass which is where my roots are, a guitar because music saves my life everyday, and a stylized ocean wave because I live by the ocean and never want to leave. The Latin reads: This too shall pass.
I took the lessons I learned and used them to create this Chihuahua crest. I love the simplicity and colors and am discovering that less is sometimes more.
I recently finished a Skillshare class taught by Fraser Davidson. Check out some of his design work, he’s definitely one of my heroes. The class was on designing sports logos and I really learned a lot! From the beginning sketches to how to use negative space – I think this approach is really going to help my design work. Like my vicious Schnauzer?
It’s been a long time since I’ve created a new dog breed so here is a Beagle Bartender! Beagles are part of the hound family so I gave him a houndstooth vest. They were originally bread to hunt small game so he’s serving up Wild Hare Ale. While researching Beagles I couldn’t help but notice how darn cute they are! Prints are available on Ebay.
