I have a ton of projects on my plate right now and it seems a bit overwhelming but mostly exciting. Including a collaboration in progress with a fashion blogger who reached out to me. One of my friends connected her with me, but it is always exciting to me when people I don't know are interested in my work. I also have agreed to provide a few illustrations for a book that is being written right now, so that is an ongoing project as well that includes a lot of brainstorming and sketching.
I finalized my logo choices last week. I had an absolute blast working with Jenna. You can see a bit of the design process above. I honestly had a hard time deciding because they were all so amazing. After carefully thinking about it, I set the designs aside and then picked the one that jumped out to me every time I looked at them. It fits my brand perfectly and I'm so happy with the final product. I did a little sketch of Jenna in return that you can see above as well. This Tuesday I have a photo shoot for my Etsy shop which is the last big step before I click "open shop." What a moment that will be for me. I'll probably cry! Lastly, I'm planning my launch party that my mom has agreed to host. So far it sounds like there will be a lot of pink involved...
Oh, I almost forgot. My art will be displayed at Royal Grounds Coffee in Minneapolis from November to December. I think I will be having all of my coffee dates there and a special celebratory party for anyone who wants to check out the cute coffee shop and my art!!
