It's almost here - Surtex 2017! I've been working my patootie off (or so my 6 year old would say) for the past few months creating new patterns and illustrations to debut at my second Surtex show and I'm excited to say that I'm in the home stretch! There's so much that goes in to exhibiting at a trade show. If you've ever done one, you know what I'm talking about! So it's time to take a little breather and finally start sharing the work that I'm so proud of. Here are a few of my flyers that will be circling around my social media accounts and other blogs over the next few weeks before the show as well as a sneak peek of my Lookbook. I'll be exhibiting again with Four Corners Art Collective in Booth 2723. If you're an Art Director and would like to make an appointment, feel free to email me. And if you follow me on Instagram, I'll be posting pictures and videos from the actual show. Otherwise, I'll post a recap in a few weeks!
Since May is right around the corner and it's graduation time across the country, I thought it would be a good time to blog about my Neo Geo Grad collection I collaborated on with Design Design. It includes two sizes of napkins, a gift bag, greeting card, and boxed thank you notes. I was really thrilled to work on this project. I love how they put the designer's information on the actual products, which is a big deal for us! And they've included Neo Geo Grad in their 2017 Graduation advertising campaign! I've also designed Confirmation and Communion greeting cards which are great quality. They are printed on beautiful paper and the text is in real gold and silver foil. Some of the products are available on Design Design's website but mostly found at retailers across the country.

Last year I designed a few doormats for a manufacturer and wholesaler called Entryways Doormats and I'm happy to say that the first one is now for sale! It's called Kaleidoscope and I'm really happy they chose this design. It was one of my favorites and was even on my big banner wall at Surtex last year! I have two more holiday designs coming out in the fall so I'll share those as they become available. Kaleidoscope is an outdoor handmade coir entryway doormat. I received a few samples and they are super thick and really nice quality. You can find them for sale now at various retailers including Home Depot, Houzz, Wayfair, and Overstock.
