Textiles and Memoirs

Hello hello! Life is as busy as ever and time really flies after graduation, let me tell you. It's already been over a month since I moved my tassel from the right to the left for the second (and final?) time and so far I've spent some time traveling the seas of the Caribbean with my love to celebrate graduation and being an adult, reading and re-reading all of my student loan documents while breaking out in a cold sweat, and applying to more art and design jobs than I can count on my fingers and toes.. and a half a dozen other people's fingers and toes too. Sadly this is going to be an all text post, but to that end I have two important announcements to make:

This week I started working at Cranston Print Works as a freelance designer. The atmosphere is peaceful and everyone is extremely nice and helpful. My first assignment is for Valentine's Day and I'm excited to see where it goes, I will say though that I'm always totally cool with drawing chocolate and all things love. I've never really done textile or pattern design before so I'm currently learning as I go and enjoying the journey. There will be more to come on this subject in the near future, for sure.

Today my interview with SMITH Magazine was posted on their website, front page! (For future reference when I'm no longer on the front page, the blog can be found here) The interview is mostly about my thesis work which has everything to do with their mission, and just answering their questions was enough to inspire me to make more visual work revolving around six word memoirs. I will also have more information on my involvement with SMITH's new ebook within the next few days. The interview is 100% worth reading though, if I do say so myself, so go do that while I go cuddle with the dogs before bed. Goodnight!
