I’ve been dying to add this new section to my site with text related work. I had so much fun creating these pieces. I hope you like.

I’m busily preparing for a trip to California. I’m so excited I’m going to finally meet Mary Jo Matsumoto in person and Erin Loechner (by the way, Erin of DFM’s new Mankind Magazine is available for free download, it’s issue 2) in the L.A area. Then Dave and I are heading to the Santa Barbara area to go to some vineyards and stuff like that. The we are going to San Francisco. I have a bunch of meetings to show my portfolio and some mocked up ideas to companies and art directors I want to work with. I’m so excited. I just got a new portfolio from House of Portfolios (I’ve never had a nice one). So we’re tying up loose ends and finishing a few freelance jobs and then jet-set-go.

You are never going to want me back here. Maquette has some incredible guest posters next week. I can’t thank them enough. You must tune in to see the amazing posts they’ve whipped up. You’ll be welcoming Yasmine of “a print a day“, Jessica of “Treasuring“, Jules of “Brandbird“, and Abbey of “Abbey Goes Design Scouting” with a few little posts I prepared in advance for you too. So Maquette won’t be dormant. Tune in.
