This is a project I did way back in November and it was pretty painless and quick! I love the way it turned out. Continue reading
I love stripes. Black and white particularly. Aren’t those balloons below amazing!?!?! I want some that will permanently float around in my house. :) For my current graphic design project we are doing a set of 3 illustrations based off an animal. Like I mentioned last week, this picture inspired me to chose a zebra, so stripes have been filling my brain. Here’s a handful of my favorite images plus my own handwriting inspired by this simple print.
PS! Would you ever paint stripes on a wall in your home? This entry way made me want to. I think I’d only do it if it was a fairly small space.
Happy Halloween! I’ve always loved this masculine room via Lonny. The textures, the skull, the radio poster on the left, the light fixtures are all pretty perfect together.
Here are some of my other favorites for todayyyy::

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
