  • One of my early jobs for Speedo was a SMU (special make-up) for Target’s 2014 learn-to-swim kid’s products. This project came in around the holidays of 2012 and my assignment was 20 spot prints— 10 each for boys and girls. In two weeks I created some of my favorite private label work to date— I […]

  • Happy to report I’ve been spotting many of the caps I did for Speedo out on the market now. Like this little mer-girl. You can see some of the new designs in my updated projects here.

  • I’ve got a few very important donkey related things to share but this one is the most time-sensitive.

Here’s […]

  • A downloadable donkey desktop calendar to celebrate the new year. May our 2014 goals be met or at least learned from, may we have time for self and family, and may we carry forth in daily gratitude and peace.

  • A while back I discovered this incredible artist. I was a bit obsessed as her blog goes way back and she’s pretty prolific in the posting department. You can REALLY get to know her. Roxy Marj (aka RomaWinkel) is much more than an adorable name. Her artwork has so much personality, filled with unusual characters, […]

  • I have been blessed with some very long term friendships. Like from Art School days… like when a certain friend used to wear parachute-material genie pants and Boy George was still a big deal. My girl Robin is a gifted and generous friend. I’ve laughed harder with her than anyone I know. We’ve shared secrets, […]
