365 Drawings in 1 Year

Last year, I set myself the goal of posting a new drawing every single day of 2017. It sounded simple enough.  I'll create space every single day to work on improving my lettering and to get into the habit of working on personal projects along side the rest of my work and social life.  Here are some things I learned over the last year: Make the commitment.  I knew I wanted to improve my lettering and the only SURE fire way to improve is to make a commitment to doing it... a lot.  How do you find the time?  Life gets in...

2017 Recap

2017 Recap

Come with me - A weekend in LA

I've been feeling a little burnt out lately, so I was really ready for this long weekend.  I totally gave into the hype and scored tickets to the Museum of Ice Cream, so my boyfriend and I decided to make a weekend of it.  I've lived in San Diego now for about 5 years now from Philly and Los Angeles is a hop and skip away but I've only spent minimal amount of time up there.       We booked a room at the Ace Hotel in Downtown LA, which is a designer's dream.  The details from the stationery...
