Goodbye 2014

Wow, 2014 was quite the year. It's amazing to think of how much actually happened. Before we do a run down of this year's highlights, here's some eye candy! I finally got around to scanning one of the few jobs I can show you- a Halloween "How To" I illustrated for Cricket Magazine's October issue. So much fun!

So here we go!

In January I quit my design job so I could return to freelance work full time. My first continuing education class ran at Watkin's College of Art, Film, and Design and I plugged away in my studio preparing for Surtex in May. The show was a big hit for me, and around the same time I was hired as the new art business teacher for undergraduates at Watkins College for the Fall semester (and will continue to teach the subject in 2015). Keith and I got married on September 27 and enjoyed a tropical honeymoon, all while working on a slew of great projects for new and returning clients (which I can't wait to show you in 2015!).

Happy Happy Art Collective is almost one year old and the ladies there have ballooned in popularity over the past months, working on projects ranging from children's books to magazine illustrations. We finished our Happy Happy Alphabet and are talking about what's in store for next year!

What's happening in 2015? January is already packed with me visiting the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Show next week and getting ready for a new class of students at Watkins. In addition, be on the look out for new collaborations and some HUGE news to be announced in the upcoming weeks.

Have a happy and safe New Year's Eve! See you in 2015.
