By Design – Cat Illustration Collection

Design

Back when I was still in art school, we had a project that explored creating images with different media/styles using the same animal. I of course went with a cat. To date, this is probably my best illustration collection and I love all of them turned out (sans the painted one, which I haven't shown here cause it isn't my best.) The pencil and ink works were my favorites. I…

By Design – Inktober

Design

If you're not aware of Inktober, let me inform you! Inktober is a drawing/inking challenge where artists draw a piece of art using ink in some way every day of the month! Ink isn't really my speciality, and I probably could have done Drawlloween (which is pencil drawings) instead, but what the hell, I decided to go full out of my comfort zone! Not to mention I picked up some…

By Design – Classroom Posters

Design

I had a friend request some posters for his classroom to hang by the little classroom library, in exchange for books. Because I still believe in the barter system. (Seriously though, gimme books, I'll provide designs, that's how I roll) He had a specific quote that he wanted posters designed for, then another one to hang over the bookcase that was hip and cool. Gotta get the attention of those…

She's super healthy, kind, strong, and inspirational. Honestly she's an amazing lady. So I'll shameless shout out my friend and say: if you love yoga, health, and zoo animals, give her a follow! Now, let's look at the logo breakdown!

By Design – The New Logo

Design

I thought I'd share a bit of the process behind my new logo design! As a designer I have a focus on branding, I love creating brands from the ground up, or reworking old brands into something new and better. When I finally decided that Bookworms in Dresses didn't really encompass what my brand was really about, I knew that I had to create something new! I have a rather…

By Design – Traveling Owl

Design

I've been thinking about actually talking about my design work on the blog, but I never really got around to actually doing it before. Now is that time though, as I slowly work towards finding a good niche for myself here in the blog world. I suppose it could just be books, but then it wouldn't be the lifestyle of a bookworm! (Well, my lifestyle as a bookworm would be…
