Month: November 2012
See more of Jillian’s work here.
Better Bean Company launched their new packaging and web site with a illustration that I completed a few months ago. Now that the product is out I can finally show the work. The illustration was used for the web site as well as the side panel of the new packaging. There are several symbols in the illustration including the Three Sisters which in Native American culture represent the three agricultural crops (squash, maize and beans). It was great to work with Keith Kullberg who is very passionate about beans and healthy living. They sell at healthy grocery stores such as PCC Natural Markets and Whole Foods Market and at Wegmans in your area. I hope you get a chance to try them!”
Each month I illustrate the opinion column in the UK journal Bulletin which is the short name for The Official Magazine of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists
I love illustrating for specialist and trade magazines as often the text is very dense and sometimes dry and uses language specific to it’s field…so I have to go away and look the occasional word up and find things out. I love getting a glimpse into a world that can be very known to it’s readers but new and unknown to me.
In Bulletin some of the articles are taken from research papers others are sometimes personal stories from the speech therapists or their service users. The second type tend to stay with me longer – like the one about a man with a stutter whose career advisor’s only advice was to apply for jobs that wouldn’t involve speaking….after a few years he took no notice and went on to have a very successful career (the illustration of boy on a ladder).”

I am excited to share a few projects I did with Land of Nod that are now available!
Twelve Bar Blues Bedding features a floral design from my sketchbook turned into a fun repeat for sheet sets.
I also designed a tree skirt for them which features a wintery community scene embroidered onto linen.
I love working with Land of Nod and appreciate the quality of their products, which are definitely not just for kids!”
Land of Nod has opened a beautiful holiday pop-up shop at 136 Prince St. in SoHo (Nov. 2 to Dec. 31) It looks enchanting! Many thanks to Libby Wienke at Land of Nod for snapping this pic! If you’re ini New York, I suggest you make a beeline to see it lickety-split!”
