I have been thinking about adding a blog element to my website for years now, but have just never gotten around to it. But with business growing, and me itching for more projects, because who can ever have enough of those, enter: THE BLOG. I can't promise my posts will be very interesting, or that I will post very often. But I do like the idea of a space I can put my ideas about design and process down on...computer? Pixels?
Another reason I wanted to start this blog is to upload some tips and tricks of the trade, freebies and specials along with my Etsy shop. I haven't been doing this stuff for very long, but I do know a few things now that might help the beginning graphic designer, illustrator or novice letterer.
With that being said, I will end this first post with a freebie! I recently acquired an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil...let me tell you, it really IS all it's cracked up to be! I have been designing more then ever, and it has been really fun to test it's bounds when it comes to illustrating and designing. The house illustration I made available below as a free phone backdrop is one of my new favorites! I love the texture and detail I have been able to get out the Procreate app! There will definitely be more illustrations in this style yet to come!
