I've done a few freelance projects since the last time I posted. A couple logos and a business card for a good friend's candle business (check her out here: https://sweetmamas.scentsy.us/Scentsy/Home). She has the most awesome curly hair! :) I painted her and her husband that one year I gifted paintings to my friends and family for Christmas!
The logos were for friends/coworkers. I also did a couple other small projects that aren't really fun to look at - booklet layout, coupon design.
On my plate currently are 2 more logo designs, one menu design (for my sister-in-law's new restaurant)... and I am sure there is something else that I just can't think of right now.
I recently received a late Christmas/bday present from a friend - a new sketchbook! I've been dying to get back to sketching/drawing... or trying to anyway. I have never tried to draw Liam, which is sad, so I'd like to make that one of my first drawings in that book. And I told my friend (who gifted me the book) that he'd be one of the first sketches int he book as well... now... all I have to do is find the time to do it!
I recently ordered a book called 100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People (Voices That Matter) by Susan Weinschenk, who has a Ph.D. in Psychology, and a 30-year career in applying psychology to the design of technology. I am excited to get it (should come today -- thank you Amazon Prime!) and read it, as I think it will help me with my design process and also refresh my graphic design foundations. Amazon link: here
Hope by my next post I will have some drawings to post! See you then!
