IdN Extra 03: The New Twenties

Some fantastic news. IdN and Society6 teamed up a while back to create this book, "Idn Extra 03:The New Twenties" which has just come out! I have a spread in it and am alongside some truly fantastic artists.

Book description (from the IdN site): A scintillating survey of the work of today’s 20-somethings, who were all brought up in the technological boom years of the late 20th Century – and whose concepts of self-promotion and networking are radically different from those of their predecessors. In this third IdN Special Edition, we have collaborated with Society6, one of the largest online platforms for up-and-coming designers, to showcase the talent of 58 brilliant young artists with a contemporary outlook on creativity and communicating.

A Postcard Collection

WORN Buttons for "Pin Up, Party Down"

A while back I designed a button for the lovely publication WORN for their ~Pin Up, Party Down~ event. They made 20 of my design and sold 10 to raise funds for issue 10 (!!) and mailed me the other 10! Tavi, the cutie pie behind Style Rookie recently posted about Worn and her contribution to all this button making excitement, it looks like a good time was had by all.
I have a few left to give away so the next 8 etsy orders (#'s 417-424)will get buttons in their pack as well!

Bunny Stamp ~ I caved

Last week I had talked about making a bunny stamp, and I totally caved. It came in the post right before the long weekend, and I've been bunny stamping everything since then. How much fun is a bunny stamp? Tons.

Since it is technically still a "holiday" here in the US, I'm moving at a nice leisurely pace today, starting everything off with a pot of tea (pear ginger black tea from the Tao of Tea) before diving into a few projects. Tomorrow's very first jury duty.
