I am quite tired but VERY JOLLY as I have been working extra hard to fit in illustration things around my already manic life. Last week I managed to tick off all the things I had on my TO DO LIST and it seems this week will be no different; YESSSSSS. I feel a little like I don't have much down time but it's worth it for the satisfaction of being on top with everythign else :-)
I've been revisiting a lot of work recently and trying to make it more sellable... in short, it means turning my everyday designs into designs for occasions; I need to think smarter and act smarter! With regards to acting smarter, I've found a new supplier and I'm (so far) incredibly impressed! I can't wait for my first batch of NEW PRINTS to come back from them! YIP YIP YIP!
What a week it has been! I feel like I've been able to tick all the boxes in terms of what I always hope to achieve each week and so often fail to do. I've exercised, cooked, cleaned, seen family, caught up with several friends, celebrated 22 months of being together with THB, done some drawing, re-worked a drawing (see below!), found a new printer, sold lots of cards to a new supplier (!!! yippeeeeee!!!) AND secured some Graphic Design work! All on top of a busy week at actual work. Sometimes I wonder how I manage to fit it all in...
For all the new babies out there (including a special little man, Tyler, who I will be meeting on Sunday for the very first time!!!):
Hope you're all well in the land of blog! I am yet again mega busy but keeping on top of things as I feel pretty refreshed due to a lovely holiday to Kefalonia, Greece. It really couldn't have come at a better time as I just needed to unwind and reflect on a whole host of things including job offers, new contracts and just where I'm at generally in life!
Loving the sun!
I'm just about to start a new drawing and don't have much I can show you just yet but here is a snippet of some logo/branding design I've been working on for one of the umbrella companies at McLaren:
Happy drawings to follow soon! Speak soon, S-A XXXX
