Glamour and Grace Wedding Blog

My very dear friend Megan, who is probably the most glamorous and sophisticated lady I know, has just started her very inspirational wedding blog, Glamour and Grace. Megan is a very talented photographer and designer, and her own wedding was an incredibly beautiful vision in black, white and turquoise, with a touch of vintage charm. I was honored to be one of her bridesmaids, and got to watch her through the whole planning process, and this girl has it together! Her blog is full of beautiful, inspiring images and mood boards, and is a great link for any bride to put on her list of wedding resources.

My name in the NY Times?

Ever Google yourself? These past couple of days I've Googled myself a few times...ok, more than a few....but how often do you get your art published in multiple newspapers around the country? It's exciting!

I'm overwhelmed by the exposure my Working Class Studio pillows are getting, and by the amount of publications that picked up the article written about them by the Associated Press. Myself and Cassie Hart, another WCS/SCAD alum, both have our pillows featured in this article, and you can check it out in the Savannah Morning News, the NY Times, or any number of newspapers online (just type in Sarah Montes pillows on Google!).

If you are interested in purchasing my pillows, go by Working Class Studio's website for more information. Happy Googling!

Rawr! Zap! Vote!

My incredibly talented husband, the amazing Dave Montes has impressed me yet again. This man is just bursting with the most creative ideas, and he's just posted two character designs on the site Patch Together. Anyone can post drawings and designs that people then vote on, and if they get enough votes, this company will make them into toys. Dave's got two designs up there right now. Click the picture to see the whole design, and then vote!    dready beargozo greenman
If they get enough votes, they will be ready for pre-order, and then you can own a custom designed toy by Dave!

So, started the new job today at Carter's and was so inspired, I came home and pulled up a really old drawing I did back in one of my first illustration classes. The illustration as a whole is pretty much a disaster, except for the birds. Now, this was just a practice piece, trying to solidify the whole repeat pattern process in my mind, so please excuse the live traced quality of the birds. Just wanted to get my feet wet, and see what I could come up with on the fly. Enjoy!
