100 Days of Pillows (22-26)

Since last week I unintentionally designed mostly geometric patterns, I decided at the beginning of this week to intentionally set a theme. I chose a floral one, thinking it would be a good exercise to determine if I really enjoy making floral prints. The conclusion? I enjoy it. I wouldn’t want to make only floral […]

100 Days of Pillows (17-21)

This week I leaned toward modern prints. It wasn’t something I set out to do beforehand, but a session in my sketchbook last weekend resulted in a lot of the geometric and modern motifs you see in these patterns. The fun part is always arranging, coloring (and re-coloring) and seeing how the final design differs […]

100 Days of Pillows (12-16)

This week of the 100 Days of Pillows project felt a little more challenging than the last, but I finished with 3 more designs I’m happy with and 2 that I absolutely love. Lesson learned: I favor patterns that have breathing space. But if they are fairly busy, including neutrals is required to give the […]

100 Days of Pillows (7-11)

The first full week of pillow designs is complete! I confess that on some days I had no idea what I was going to make. But I only had to remember that simply sitting down and putting pencil to paper stirs creative ideas until eventually something comes out. I’m quite happy with the progress made […]

100 Days of Pillows

Recently I’ve had a shift in the way I approach my artwork, that began when I started envisioning my artwork on home decor. The question that now frequently comes to mind is: “Would I put this design in my own home?”. It’s surprising how much the answer to that question can change the outcome of […]

Analysis Paralysis

Analysis paralysis: I’m trying hard not to fall victim to it. 😉 I’m still working with manufacturers for my first batch of throw pillows. The process is not as straightforward as I had hoped and there are quite a few options to sort through. Coupled with the week-long vacation Chad & I just took, things […]

September

This has been a week of really trying to balance creativity with business tasks. And sometimes the scale tips in favor of business over creativity, because it must. I completed a custom jewelry order and finished a couple of simple art pieces, but a lot of my time went into researching manufacturers for custom pillows […]
