Maternity Photoshoot

Brae Howard took these amazing maternity photos of me. Our inspiration: Art Deco era gold and black, Southeast Asian opulence, and a little trip around the world with some textiles! With help from Nei Dunbar for makeup, we got something pretty cool together.  For more, see my Facebook post...

Tampa Workspace Show

This past Saturday, June 7th, I had an awesome homecoming art show Tampa, FL at Workspace, a new-ish gallery and studio in Seminole Heights.  I went to USF for art school and stuck around a few years after graduation to enjoy the scruffy creativity of the place; it was so great to be back!

Hand-Lettering Class top 4 Student projects

I had the very cool experience of teaching a hand-lettering class this past semester at University of the Arts.  It was a brand new class, and I think it's timed very well since hand-lettering has become such an important part of illustration in the past few years.

Here are my top 4 favorites from the final assignment: an infographic with a self-generated concept.  

10 Hottest Generals of the American Revolution

Hannah Gregory: Sophomore

Hannah made this hilarious and beautifully illustrated infographic with limited color and her sophisticated take on revolutionary lettering.  It was cool to see how she kept it historic, but the overall feeling is very modern.

You are what you Art

A fun take on "you are what you eat,"  but for art student archetypes.  Molly  made this infographic with her adorable illustration style and a complementary lettering style that supports but doesn't overwhelm the piece.  I LOVE her color choices. 

South Philly Uniform: Southeast Philly

Rebecca Kirby: Junior

Rebecca's clever observations of neighborhood types starts with this Southeast Philly girl.  Her gorgeous line quality is echoed in the lettering style she chose.   How clever is that little "South Phila Uniform" tag?  I can't wait to see the rest of the series.

5 Types of Horror Movie Antagonists

From the Slasher to the Possession Victim, Kelly pulled these characters off to a t! I love that she chose individual subheading styles to reinforce the vibe of each figure. The blood splatters were each drawn specifically for her copy.
