Aside from my written projects, and fundraising, here is a sampling of what is currently going on in the studio…
Mixed Media Collage
- Painting canvases for the local cafe walls at BDBeans in Belleview. There’s nothing like being knuckle deep in acrylic paint.
- Working on a new line of greeting cards and a catalog this time.
- I’ve sketched out the components for several mini books that I am laying out in InDesign. I’ll be doing a test print next week, then offering them up on Etsy. One of them may become an interactive storybook if I can reverse-engineer how to make one from the animation. ::insert diabolical laughter here::
- My grandmother’s cookbook is being made into a recipe book-slash-scrapbook. This is a personal project, but I may share snippets on Instagram occasionally and, if it is offered to the public, would be a fundraiser for Hospice.
- My aunt passed last year and we discovered a stack of old 1930/40s style fashion drawings from her time at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. A real surprise. I am in the process of scanning everything and, with my cousins’ permission, will be making them into a book benefitting the American Heart Association. Either way, I will be posting photos of some of what we found.
