My full-time job is being a graphic designer for Kelly's Kids a children's clothing company. The office had a recent makeover as we prepared to host Conference for our new sister brand, Wildflowers. For a couple days, our consultants who would be selling Wildflowers clothing came and were trained on the clothes, how the direct selling process will work, and they got to build friendships with one another. Since we decorated the whole office, even the bathroom got a little face lift! Being inspired by a dish that now sits on a shelf of the bathroom, I created this desktop and tablet background. I've been experimenting with watercolors recently, and I also started using a water brush.Read More
I remember that moment when Stephanie and I were talking about her Etsy shop and selling her work. We were both in Austin at the time and lounging by my apartment complex's pool. It was both of our senior years - her's with the graduate program at University of Texas and mine with St. Edward's University. We were talking about all sorts of things (plans for both of our graduations, what we'll do in the real, why the pool was green - I lived in a really great *cheap* place at the time). We started to talk about art, and that's when Stephanie told me she was considering opening an Etsy shop to sell her illustrations. Even at that point when she was dabbling with the idea, she talked about creating illustration for children.Read More
During the Summer of 2015 I worked as an Orientation Coordinator for St. Edward's University. My responsibilities were mostly to act as the team's graphic designer. One of the things I had to create were individual symbols to represent each Student Orientation Leader's group name. I greatly enjoyed illustrating goats and finding creative ways to demonstrate the goat puns* the Student Orientation Leaders came up with.
*One group is a cow because he wanted to focus on Sorin Oak a notable symbol on campus.
