Wednesday Sketches and a Brief Hiatus

Kitty and his Flower Pot and Kite

I want to start a new series where I post one of my drawings each week. I sketched this during one particularly long meeting at work, where half of the team was discussing something that didn’t really apply to me. So this little kitty and his flower pot and kite emerged. Sketching weekly is something that will help keep my skills sharp. I haven’t done any drawings for a while and I want to get back into it because I think it makes me a better designer.

I have some exciting projects in the works and I need to focus more on those, so I will be taking a break from the blog for a bit and putting my shop on vacation. Here’s some of what I’ll be doing while I’m away:

  • We are in the Holiday rush at Frontgate, trying to get all the products ready for the web go-live date September 1st. I have so much to work on, I am just mentally exhausted at the end of the day! But, yay for Christmas in August!
  • This week I’m designing a marketing flier for Will’s company Germane Solutions, to use at one of the trade shows they will attend.
  • The Pi Beta Phi Alum Club in my area is hosting a fundraising event called Floral Fantasy on November 13, and I am designing the entire event package! I’ve already finished the letterhead, but I still need to create the save the date, invitations, tickets, etc. I can’t wait to share the illustration with you – I am very happy with the way it turned out! If you happen to live in the Dayton or Cincinnati area, this is a fun event to attend – more details in the future!
  • I’m also working on a new website for my design portfolio and I will definitely share, whenever it is that I finish!

As you can see, I am super busy right now! Whenever I get some of these things cleared off my plate, I will be back to share some fun new designs and post my next treasury list at the very least. Have a great week!
