By Design – Inktober


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…

The Winning Print!

Blogging, Design

I just wanted to share this print that I created for the winner of the last sponsor spotlight giveaway! I was really proud of how this turned out! I also figured I could also share a bit about my creative process this way as well! Since, as an artist it's fun to share with people how you work, since every artist works a bit differently on projects. We all have…

Sketchbook Diaries #7


It's that time again to take another gander through my sketchbooks as we tumble into fall! A sketch a day keeps the lazies away....or something like that!  What have you been drawing lately?  (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); ga('create', 'UA-44399366-1', 'auto'); ga('send', 'pageview');

Sketchbook Diaries #6


Let's take another gander into my sketchbooks! Sometimes I scribble in pencils and other times I scribble with colored pencils. Sometimes it's even crayons. Or pens. Or markers! It all depends what's lying around! 

Sketchbook Diaries #5


It's been a while since I've posted a Sketchbook Diaries post! I almost forgot about it!! I've been carrying around my mini sketchbook recently, and haven't had much time to scribble illustrations! I've been doing a lot of logos and brochures! I also slapped some new stickers on my sketchbook! The cat is from Tiny Tabby, they support cat shelters!  Got some old scribbles, some brochure scribbles, and random new…

Sketchbook Diaries #4


It's time for another tour of my sketchbooks! With some quick doodles and some roughs from a recent contract job!  Keep creating and keep reading, check out my friend's awesome new book club!

Sketchbook Diaries #3


Let's look at some more pages of my sketchbooks with another edition of the sketchbook diaries! Here you can see some not finished button/keychain designs, some scribbles from my school notebooks, drafts of magazine ads, and some sketches of people...one being Z from Straight Up Z! I like doing portraits for fun!  So many scribbles!

Bookworm does Drawing

Design, Life

As most of you know, I'm a design student, so drawing is something of a passion of mine. I sketch a LOT! I wanted to show here my progress, as in, we don't all magically start out as a fantastic artist. It takes lots of practice! Doodles on powerpoint slides, notes, napkins, paper tablecloths, coloring books, and the like!  So here are some pieces from years ago!  The last one…

The Sketchbook Diaries


I have A LOT of sketchbooks. I have a bunch of different sizes and I almost always have a small one in my purse in case inspiration strikes on the go! So, since I'm almost always drawing, I thought I'd share some pages every once and while! It's fun to see what's in someone's sketchbook! Will this be a new series?? We shall see!  Sketches are always fun, scratchy, and…
