I've been working with Lindan Courtemanche from Heuristic Branding for over a year, adding my linework to her vision for Chudleigh's Apple Farm. There've been drawings from apples to hot dogs (literally) to wagons that lend a playfulness to an established family grown venture. Growing up, Chudleighs was a family outing highlight, especially for a kid that grew up in the city, and it's nice to see the tradition continue. There's even more info at i2iart!
Or just reminiscing. I loved drawing out these actual alumni from Middlebury College. Makes me feel nostalgic about being in a classroom.
I do. If I don't, I find myself stressed out about how I'm going to pay for all this stuff. Who needs gifts when you can spend time with friends, any MAYBE spend some money on food and drink. Ok, you can bah humbug me all you want, but don't think your friends aren't thinking the same, so why not paddle that same boat and just cheer on the season (and by cheer, I mean literally saying 'yay!' and then you're done).
I spent a nice morning a few weeks ago with the ladies who created the blog Love, Emoem, an ode really to moms (and dads!) to speak about their experiences, work and style (clearly I'm a goof on that one). They asked a lot of questions about my life and at times I found it difficult to answer because I personally found being a mom really hard, and I didn't do a very good job at juggling that with my illustration career at the time. I vividly recall that when Maggie turned one, it was less about her and more about my unexpected feelings that I made it through.
I'm no longer a new mom, but I'm still learning everyday, and I have my family and friends to thank for that.
