Sketch Book

One of my favorite activities is sketching. It is a time when I don’t worry how an image will turn out. I can work on a character until it starts looking how I would like. Right now I have been sketching a lot of animals. What do you enjoy sketching? As you can see I have posted a couple of my cat pages and my inspiration, my cat. Happy sketching!

Card Samples

I am excited to share some card samples that I just got from Gartner Greetings! These cards were very fun to create because they all have popped up parts or movable parts. I had the opportunity to figure out the movable mechanics of the card.

Baby Shower Invitation

One of my good friends is having a baby soon and I got to create the invites to her baby shower! I also made little stickers to go along with the card too. As you can see I made them in the shape of little diapers with a teddy, bunny, and bird pattern. It was a lot of fun to create.

Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park

Happy New Year! I hope that you had a healthy and happy start to 2010!
I had a wonderful vacation in December visiting my family in Michigan. One of the many fun things that we did was visit the Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. I love visiting this park; they always have wonderful art pieces to look at. You will see below several of pictures Seth took during our visit. If you are visiting the Grand Rapids area or want to look them up http://www.meijergardens.org I highly recommend it.
