“Hi,
I received these lovely samples in the mail from Mara Mi: bags, journals and zip pouches! This is one of the best parts of this job—receiving samples and seeing how things look as final products.”

New Work by John Coulter: Nevada Budget Illustration

John Coulter writes us:

“Hi Lilla,
I did an illustration for the Las Vegas Sun for an article about balancing the state’s budget. Below is the final, the layout, some closeups and the original sketch.

The symbol on the sleeve comes from the Nevada State Flag. I found a flat color, vector version of it, and spiced it up with some textures, and changed the fonts as well. The phrase “Battle Born” on the state flag reflects the state’s entry on the Union side during the Civil War in 1864.

Thanks,
John”

Trina’s Birch Tote Bag for Blue Q

Trina writes us:

“Lilla,
A week or so ago I received some samples of the bag I illustrated last summer for BlueQ. We were staying at our friends’ house when I was working on the project. They have a long thin garden with apple and fig trees and a vegetable patch at the end. For three mornings in a row a squirrel came to the garden – I think he though I might need a model – because on the third day he tap-tapped with his little paw on the patio window! When I finished the project I didn’t see him again.

The other lovely thing about doing this project was it was a collaboration with Hallie a freelance designer based in New York. It was my first time of communicating on a project using skype – talking can sometimes be so much easier than writing and it’s so nice to feel you know someone a bit by the end of the project.“
