It's a Cakewalk!

This summer I was asked by a friend of mine to design
a logo as she begins her own communications firm.
I was really honored to have her ask me.
Deborah was brilliant to work with and
knew exactly what she wanted.
 I enjoyed researching and creating the artwork. 
Lastly, I am thrilled that she is pleased
with how it all turned out!
Here's a collage showing the front of the business card as well as images
of some fabulous items that were made especially for the launch party -
cookies with QR code, beer glasses and cupcakes with the Cakewalk logo! 
I was also asked to create artwork to give as favors
to those attending the launch party.
 The idea was to make small pieces of art.
And if anyone had a favorite quote, I illustrated theirs.
 I can't tell you how much fun I had doing this!
I am not the most outgoing person at parties so this
was a super way to spark a conversation with other party-goers.
I created a collage of some of the pieces I made.
I didn't get a good shot of them all, and one or two
I completely forgot to photograph! (too much wine!) 
However, below are most of them:
I got a kick out of some of the quotes that people came up with! 
What a terrific experience this has all been.
I'll be back posting again soon. This has been a busy summer.
I'll be off this week on vacation and hoping to catch
up on visiting blogs and creating some artwork.
I've been working mostly in my little Moleskine books.
Thanks for stopping by and for visiting.
I love getting your comments :)
Thanks for leaving such lovely notes!
Take care, Fran T xo

Small work

I spoke too soon:) I didn't get a bit of painting in this past weekend!
But it's all good. I was creative in my yard.
Raking up grass clippings, weeding, but most important -observing.
I'm trying to keep simple and I'm jotting,
sketching and doodling things down into my little sketch book.
keeping things easy...

just drawing with not too much intensity between my ears...

documenting a meal...

Thanks so much for all the nice comments I've received so far this summer.
I hope all is well and I'm planning on visiting some more blogs this weekend.
Enjoy the weather. It's been downright delightful here and the humidity
has disappeared for a little while.
Take care,
Fran T xo
