2017 Calendar Design

It is time to find a new calendar for 2017! I love finding a new, unique calendar to hang up in the office and at home.  I have designed this year at-a-glance calendar that features flowers and adorable foxes. This will be available on my Spoonflower shop soon, where you can make it into a tea towel or a unique wall hanging.

I took this sketch of a fox and a few floral elements and transformed them in Illustrator into this calendar design. The fabric design version that is going into my Spoonflower shop doesn't have the floral repeating pattern in the background.

Women in Science Illustration of Margaret Hamilton

Margaret Hamilton is a computer scientist, systems engineer, and business owner. She was a part of a team that developed on-board flight software for the Apollo space program at NASA. Her contributions were an integral part of the successful moon landing, and I bet you have never heard of her. I was inspired to do this illustration of Margaret after listening to this segment on Science Friday about her and the all female team of coders working on the Apollo 11 mission. I started off by doing a rough sketch using a blue pencil, and finished it on my Surface Pro using the Bamboo App and finally Photoshop to add in a few finishing touches.

Learn more about Margaret and other women in science who deserve to have their stories told.

Thinking about Valentines

I love Valentine's cards. Cute, witty, little cards you give to your loved ones. This year I used the Bamboo app to draw a few, then I did one by hand and finished it in Photoshop. It was cool to see how true to my hand writing the Surface Pro 4's pen tool showed up in the first three. The one I did by hand (the llama) and colored in Photoshop looks pretty similar. These are ready to print and mail!
