project: dental postcards
Some dental postcards I created for San Ramon Dental. My favorite is the whitening one. I crack myself up everytime I look at this invisalign postcard – yes that is a tooth guy with a brace attached to it.. with his friend trying to convince him to get the invisible […]
gallery show: 31 ink drawings
I created 31 ink drawings! It was a great challenge to complete in a month (ok, a month and a half). They are all up on display at the Art Riot in Kingston, NY for the Fun A Day exhibit. They’ll be there until March 1st. In the […]
you’ll be fine
I spend a lot of time with sharpies and ink these days. Wouldn’t it be nice if they all told me, “You’ll be fine. Don’t worry, this drawing will come out spectacular. And on top of that, everything will be ok and you look very pretty today too.”
This drawing is part […]
fun-a-day Hudson Valley
I’m participating in Fun-A-Day Hudson Valley. You pick a project, do it every day in January, then show your work in a big group show. Like their facebook page here.. they need lots of likes!
I have been meaning to do “100 drawings” of something, or 100 blog posts about another […]
I designed a slinky! To clarify, I designed a logo that was put on a slinky – but this has to be up there with coolest products I’ve seen my design on.. and for a great new school.

Beacon centennial stamps
It was a great opening weekend. Lots of amazing window displays up in Beacon, NY. I’ll have to take another stroll down main street because it got dark before I could see all of them.
Here’s a close up of my stamp designs. My favorite one is the fireflies. There are […]

Opening party is tomorrow (Saturday the 10th) and hopefully I […]
Mini garland & My save the date
Speaking of mini garlands (from my post yesterday), I made this one for our engagement photos. I drew the letters making sure there were loops to put a string through and painstakingly cut it out of cardboard. Then I cut out a bunch of shapes from origami paper and modge podged them on. […]
Business Card Design
Today, I thought i would share my business card designs. The top one is my very first design for my card business. I only did a run of 100 to start and I’m out! I thought I would do a new design every 100 cards. If you […]
Custom baby shower invite
Happy Friday! I decided to make Fridays the day when I post custom work I’ve done: logos, flyers, invites, etc. It’s a fresh break from my normal routine of creating for a market because it’s fulfilling a specific client vision. Always an adventure.
This was a baby shower invitation I did […]
A dental holiday card
This is a card I made for a friend’s dental practice. I never thought I’d be making dental cards, but it was a lot of fun to make!
Front: Wishing you a SWEET holiday season
(but don’t forget to floss for goodness sake)
I do have a huge sweet tooth, so […]
