Just finding time to post has been really challenging as of late. Between paying jobs and trying to find time to get a promo done (fall didn’t happen, likely not Christmas either)I have no time for personal projects, which is really disappointing… I am still making Halloween costumes though, will I get mine done? I doubt it! In the meantime, I thought I’d share some work that I’d done in the past few years. I’d actually forgotten some of them, and with a lot of my reference, and work, accidently deleted, I was so happy to find these in the depths of my Mac!
Puzzlers-Highlights for Children
Leo’s Dancewear (I created the prints on the shoes, and they sent me a pair!)
Christmas Gift Card – Tesco
Poetry Illustration-Pearson Learning
I do!! Love it!! I have a few fall foliage books for reference, but I thought I’d share this on in particular because the photography is well done and, well, it was two bucks on Amazon!

I’d showed you the Holiday board I did last week (I’ll be covering the reverse with winter/Hanukkah themes as well) and this weekend I worked on Fall/Halloween. I don’t know why I didn’t do these before, it’s making my job easier as far as brainstorming ideas! When you look at all your tears, and the colors actually out there in the fall, it’s more than just orange and gold. I was pretty surprised with the bright colors from the reference I have! Still, I did want a traditional black and orange Halloween one too…Again, iPhone quality, not the greatest, but didn’t feel like pulling out the Nikon…
I made a Holiday board today, and this is just reds and greens, I should do blues on the other side! I still need to create one for Halloween, and Thanksgiving. These are done in creative depts all the time, to cover color or trends, over many different product markets, and easier to convey ideas to merchants visually. For me, I just need clear thought and my stuff “out” of my bins! ; ) I apologize for the poor quality, iPhone snapshot…
