APE Expo + Dapper Cat

It's just about October and I've got LOTS of new goodies for the conventions I'll be attending for the rest of the year.  You can see all of them on the Events Page of my website (5-6 in total).  Most of them will be located in Los Angeles, but I'll be attending APE in San Francisco in mid-October.

I'll be debuting my first compilation book which will feature a collection of my work!  It's at the printers right now so more details will follow as we get closer to the event.

Besides the book, I'll also be bringing a couple new originals with me.  One of them is below - Dapper Cat!

So if you're in San Francisco, please drop by my table (and Helen's) to say hi!

Concourse Exhibition Center

Doll Business Cards

A while back I was asked by a friend to create some business cards for her. She was a doll stylist so always had this idea of paper-cut, fold out dolls as her card.

I die cut these dolls and then tri-folded them so they could be given out flat.  On the top doll her my friend's name and profession, and then the second doll has her contact info, and the last doll has a small smile on its face.

It was a pleasure to work with Jen to produce these fun gals!

A Pop-Up Proposal (Desmond + Angeline)

Desmond emailed me wanting to do a special pop-up proposal for his girlfriend.  I usually do several spread and the book is almost always vertical, but after speaking with Desmond, I decided to do something different.I'll be honest, having to pop-up the ocean is a quite a challenge since it's very, very, flat.  Thus, I decided that a single spread that was horizontal would work much better for what Desmond wanted.  I'm glad he took a chance with me because I loved the way it turned out!  I look forward to possibly doing a multi-page book horizontally sometime in the future.
