So, here's a quick "getting to know you" post before we move on to the fun stuff.

1. I'm an illustrator. I freelance mainly for magazines, but have done some advertising, cd and poster work, too. I love to draw. I also love design and typography.

2. I recently got married. You can read all about it over at my first blogging attempt.

3. I love trivia of all kinds. For some reason, the only kind that I can keep in my head, though, is stupid pop-culture trivia.... that will never help me win Jeopardy.

4. I've always been pretty frugal. I like to live simply and beneath my means (which came in handy when I decided to base my career around art), but, I still like to surround myself with pretty things. This usually leads to DIY adventures and creative solutions that I'll try to share with you.

5. I heart all things vintage. Clothing, furniture, miscellaneaous paraphenalia. I especially dig the style and design of the 20s, 40s and mod 60s.

Yay! Now it's like we've known each other forever. If anyone is reading this, tell me a little bit about yourself.

  1. Yay for the new blog! Love it already. Your illustration style is so unique, and I LOVE that bathing suit photo above. I've always wanted to decorate a bathroom with kitschy photos of vintage-style bathing beauties.

    Looking forward to reading more :-)
