Last week I ordered a sample pack of business cards from Moo and I received them yesterday. They look FANTASTIC! And these were just the samples! I didn’t adjust any of the images specifically for the postcard which is why some of them are cropped funny. I think I’m going to order both business cards and postcards of all but the one on the bottom left. I’m so amazed at the quality and I would highly recommend them based solely on the sample pack. I’d love to hear which ones you love (or hate).
Amidst all the insanity in my life these days (we’re now planning our move and buying car!) I haven’t found enough time to draw just for fun. I’m having a blast with the children’s illustration projects I’m working on, but I want to make sure I’m still finding time to doodle and experiment. Yesterday I decided that it might be fun to try to do at least one little drawing everyday when I’m at work. It might help keep me motivated and give me a little release on days when all I want to do is stay at home and draw! This sumo wrestler was requested by Chris Eliopoulos via Twitter. Enjoy!
I’ve been working on several large projects lately, so I haven’t been able to post any new work for awhile. In the meantime I thought I would give you a little sneak peek of something I’m working on. It’s a short children’s story, but that’s all I can tell you right now. It’s a project I’m really, really excited about and I can’t wait to be able to share the finished product with you.
I’m letting another illustration do double-duty for this week’s Illustration Friday topic, “Cocoon.” Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time for the weekly competition but wanted to show how much I enjoy participating! This is a piece I originally did for the topic “Entangled.”
So, after weeks of blogging silence, I’m back and can now officially call myself Mrs. Michelle Kondrich! My new husband and I jetted off to Greece for a week and had an amazing time. We stayed in beautiful hotels and everywhere we turned we had incredible views of the sea and other islands. We also had some of the best seafood we’ve ever had. If you’re ever in Santorini, look up La Maison for delicious caramelized octopus or Ambrosia for great service, a great view and great food.
With the wedding planning behind me, I’ve hit the ground running with work on two different children’s book projects as well as some other personal work. I hope to have some things to share very soon. We still have to plan our move to Denver this summer, but after such a wonderful vacation I feel recharged (aside from the jet lag) and ready to focus on my work and where I want my career to go.
Thanks for reading and I plan to be much more active on the blog in the coming weeks. Oh! And my piece, Metal Menagerie, is currently featured on the Society6 Shop! It is available for sale as a print and as a T-shirt!
