I wasn't going to enter a design in this week's Spoonflower "ABCs of...Tea Towel" Design Challenge, but then I changed my mind when I came up with the idea for this "Geometric ABCs" design. It was a bit of a rush but I managed to finish it on time! I think it will make a great art print too...If you would like to see all the entries for this week's challenge, and maybe stock up on Christmas presents (!) you can link to the Voting Page and to my Spoonflower Shop too! Voting ends Oct 6 at 3:00 EDT!
ADDENDUM: My Geometric ABCs came in 27th out of 437 entries! Thanks to all who voted!
Something a Bit Different For Me! An Editorial Illustration for a Magazine Article About the Environment!
This week's brief in FolioFocus 2108 was to create an editorial illustration using typography to accompany a magazine article about the need to act to address environmental concerns. Here is my illustration...something a bit different for me but I enjoyed the process! What do you think? Does it convey a message?
Just thought I would post this round-up of some of the new patterns and placement prints that I designed during the super fun 10-week Folio Focus course! Can't wait to do the course again in 2018!

Attended a super Hand-Lettering Workshop with Kate Campbell at Moonrise Creative last weekend. Learned a lot about calligraphy and now can't wait to use it in some of my pattern designs!
