me = bad blogger

Dear blog and my lovely readers,

I have been a bad, bad blogger. I think summer, combined with a lovely long vacay in Italy (love), buying a house (!), securing a studio space (double !!), designing (fun stuff), getting ready to print (funner stuff), having a birthday (my favorite holiday), having summer fun (the best season) and working my regular old 9 to 5 job (boring). Well, I have neglected my blog. I promise, lots of fun stuff coming up. In the meantime, here's some inspiration straight from the cobblestone streets of Rome and the tiny adorable villages of Tuscany. Ciao for now.



Amanda + Rick just moved into their beautiful new federal style house. They are updating friends and family with a postcard that features a hand drawn illustration of their new home. I hope everyone who receives this is so excited that they immediately update their contact info.


bethesda eats

My dear friend Nicole just started a new facebook page (blog to soon follow!) with her hubs that rants about their eating adventures in Bethesda, MD. I'm sure it will be such a hit that it will expand outside Bethesda eventually. Check it out here. In the meantime, here's a little logo design for you.

i want

Wow has it really been a month since big red was delivered? Well, July came and went and I've had lots of good stuff cooking. More about that later. In the meantime, check out this video from one of my absolute favorite artists. She talks letterpress and you can see her swoon-worthy letterpressed drop caps. I have my eye on the S, C and ampersand prints. Consider them added to the list of I wants!
