Custom Print & Poster Designs

You guys have seen a lot of the digital prints (now available as a download or archival print!) I’ve created since I launched new product lines just over a year ago, but I’ve also been commissioned to create some really fun custom pieces lately, so I thought I’d share!

One of Andrew’s coworkers got in touch about a set of letterpress prints for a birthday present. Unfortunately, she had already purchased frames that held paper larger than I could print on my press, so I suggested just designing them and having them printed elsewhere. This was such a fun little project for me because I got to use a bunch of my new fonts. And I love how they turned out!

Another commission came via a friend in Utah, who had seen another friend’s Facebook post in search of a designer. She wanted a print for her dad’s 70th birthday—the entire family had contributed to a list of 70 things they loved about their father and grandfather, and I worked them all into an adorable little print!

Somebody get me a cocktail

Today is one I’ve been waiting for—in a few hours, a dear friend and her husband (and first Bermuda visitors) arrive and tonight we’re celebrating her 30th birthday. So it seems an appropriate day to blog about cocktails!

french75_context_5885This month I’ve been painting a lot—reviving a love for watercolor I’ve had since childhood. A few weeks back, I started a series of classic cocktails sketched with pencil and illuminated with watercolor. I love the opportunity for both wet work—where the colors mix into each other—as well as layering transparent color on top of an area that has already dried, to create the illusion of glass.
