Recently, I received an email asking about Haiku in a Prism, one of the Gems pattern colorways I offer on Spoonflower (a digital fabric printing website).
I’m pretty happy with the final results of this pattern study. As simple as it appears, it seems to have endless color possibilities, and better: it has one or two satisfying quirks that elevate it beyond mere “floral”.
Returning to this awkwardly-named, but endlessly-intriguing motif, I filled a few more pages in a sketchbook and decided to pursue a loosely drawn “garden”.
We live across the street from an elementary school in a struggling district. Awhile ago, I wrote about the collaborative mural project I designed and directed for them, but I realized only recently that I’d left out an important first step.
The notice arrived from piq Chocolates yesterday that these 3D chocolate thank you notes have shipped to a client. I wish I could be there to see the reception.
Lisa Flores sews practical items for people and pets. She has an etsy shop, ekeka, where she sells custom and made-to-order cat beds, custom dog bed covers and cat clothes. Her cat clothes are mainly for hairless sphynx cats.
piq Chocolates is a startup that is among a few 3D thinkers developing viable ways to offer edible, 3D printed chocolates as gifts and promotional items.
This statement remains popular, and of course, widely aspired-for.
Now it’s all done up in fancy, subtle textures and vibrant shades of blue. Available on Society6 as a beautifully produced gift, you can award the honor to a friend or to yourself (or both).
The upgrade was announced October 4 on the Society6 blog. I missed the announcement, but started noticing great looking Facebook posts from a few of the artists I follow and realized something awesome was up.
This summer, I designed and directed a mural project for Saturn Elementary, a Los Angeles city school.
This was one of the promotional items created for the release of Westwood Studios’ PC game, Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny.
