Sofar Sounds

During the last month, I got to work on a dream project for the organization Sofar Sounds!
Check them out if you like live music in an intimate setting.
Their concerts are once a month in living rooms around the world!

I did a poster for last night's show and learned a few things.

1) Double and Triple check you are working in CMYK.

2) Watercolor washes with magenta are incredibly hard to print.

3) Be gracious. Be humble. Be kind.

4) Learn from your mistakes and do not repeat them.

Big thank you goes out to Jesse, my Art Director for the project! 

Below are the two final versions we handed out after the show:

Stitchology

If ever you find yourself in Albuquerque, New Mexico, 
My friend, Melisa Hart, owns the shop & had me do some typography and illustration 
for her new Men's Bowtie Patterns! 


25% off the pattern right now! Get 'em while they are hot, people.

Going Up The Country

Heading to Wyoming tomorrow!

In the spirit of the wild, wild, west check out these new rugs for Pottery Barn Teen.


I drew some line art for their collaboration with the Junk Gypsies. 
And, it was translated into this cool, bandana rug.

Tropicalia

This summer has been a busy one.
Lots of art events, lots of work, lots of travel, and lots of fun!

Went to visit my family in Miami a few weeks ago. 

Biltmore Hotel. Coral Gables. Miami, Florida.


quick doodle from a cafe in Ocean Beach, San Francisco.


Sofar Sounds holds fantastic concerts in living rooms! I'm hoping to do some art for them in the future, which I am really excited about. (Band pictured: Travis Hayes)

Leaving for another big trip, with lots of other exciting news to come in August!

My Secret Garden

I've been spending a lot of my lunches at the Grace Marchant Garden.
It's an idyllic oasis, with flowers in bloom, up some very steep stairs, and minutes from my office.


There are a few cats who live nearby and like to visit me, while I sketch, too.


The Secret Garden is one of my favorite stories of all time.
