A dash of Illustrator, a pinch of pretty

Since starting my job in early August, I haven't had much time for illustration, but I've been learning a lot about graphic design from the projects at work. I put together this design for recipe cards a few nights ago, and I've been picking out favorite recipes to print on them. I'll be printing them myself on some heavy cardstock and "laminating" them with contact paper to keep them dry and clean in the kitchen.

This recipe for chocolate ricotta mousse is amazing. I love it with fresh raspberries :)

Up and Running

So, I've been sitting here trying to think of some clever opening line to break that "first post" awkwardness, but alas....this is all I've got.

Let's see. It's been about 4 months since graduation and 3 and half since I married this guy, the love of my life! I was lucky enough to get a semi-full time job at a t-shirt printing company, and I've been playing housewife in the down time. I've just started working on a new series, (still sketching), and a portrait of my Grandmother that my Grandpa requested. I'm super excited to get started working on both, and am hoping for something substantial enough to post soon.

That's that, then.
