Steve Simpson // 1. I want to design a set of cards! 2. His complex and playful works just really do it for me.
Kai Carpenter // The colors. Buy prints in her Etsy shop.
Hannah Lee Stockdale // This image is my favorite.
Andrew Bannecker // This bike print drew me in, but he has SO much other work!
Tanglefoot // These images of varied, overbearing women dancing with a flimsy, somewhat terrified man really tickle my fancy.
I started vectorizing some of my Art Nouveau blurbs from a few posts back. I took them into Photoshop and played a bit with texturizing as well.
Here are two!
Continued play. I guess I’m just kind of stretching my software muscles. Trying to remember which combinations work best for me.
I don’t know why all my hand-lettering ends up pink. I really don’t.
Playing. Some of those letters aren’t leaning the right way, but someday they will.
Sam Wolfe Connelly: Something about the softness of his drawings gets to me. I think I might try to implement some of his color technique/processes to my own things.
Ariele Alasko: Can I please have one? I’m sorry, I mean – - Can you please teach me?
Jose Romussi: These really appeal to my crafting fingers. So delicate – the thread really emphasizes the movement.

I was cleaning my archives (and my bedroom, and my basement, and my brain), and I found some old drafts of a project from college. The whole class did posters which had to entail the phrase “to & fro,” but otherwise were free to do as we pleased. These are drafts, yes, but I thought they were sweet and reminded me of my last days at Drake.
I suppose they also align with the cabin fever (come on, spring!) I’ve been feeling, and the intense desire to jet off someplace, planless. I’m not sure if he means for it to be a positive or negative thing, but I’m feelin’ it.
