I was really happy to have the opportunity to design a new logo and some web graphics for one of my favorite design clients, Waveform LLC. The graphics needed to express the idea of waves, growth, precision, measurement, and the human touch. Waveform does comprehensive online brand creation and management. I really enjoy working for them.

Crowgirl Studio is my new baby. The response has been amazing. My digitally collaged illustrations are available as prints and cards, and I even put together a calendar for 2015. I hope you'll join me over at the new blog or Tumblr or Pinterest.
I may pop in here, once in a while, to share some thoughts or photos or art/craftwork, but my energies are going into Crowgirl, and I would really love it if you came along for the ride. See you there!
|Feeding the Shadow Within|
One of the really lovely things about all the work I've been doing lately is that I now have enough of a body of work that I can get something of a wild hair and go off on a whim and apply to a juried website like InPrint.
InPrint is a juried membership print-on-demand website, and I applied and got in. It's really cool in a lot of ways, because they do more to promote their artists than similar sites and artists get to keep a significantly larger percentage of their sales. While I'm going to be keeping my Society6 shop going (they do greetings cards and phone cases), I'm just a bit overjoyed to be able to share my InPrint store for fine art prints of my work.
Feeding the Shadow Within is available as a print.

|She Has Turned The Page|
Most of the time, August's daily collages were creative exercises for me - creative expression rather than emotional. There were two exceptions, though, and they are two of my favorite pieces of the collection.
|She Is Her Own Shelter|
I created She Is Her Own Shelter after our dinner out that night at our favorite sushi restaurant was nearly spoiled by another customer: a man of a certain age who came in with his family and was loudly self-entitled and complaining the entire time we were there. Seriously, we could hear him from the other end of the sushi bar, he was creating such a disruption. There are a lot of men like that in my family. I have a hard time being around someone like that – I was going to say "in public", but really "anywhere" would be closer to the truth – so instead of being able to enjoy our meal, I felt tense, watchful, and ready to fight or flee.
