i got a call from a very nice arkansan not too long ago requesting a portrait of a colt police positive .22 using walnut grips that he owned. the drawing is planned to be a birthday surprise for his brother’s birthday in september. he mailed images of the gun, as well as the grips to choose from and their screws. we corresponded over the time the piece was created and, in the end, he was very pleased. he wrote, the morning after the piece was delivered “woke up this morning smiling … NO buyers remorse”. happy customer. happy emily.
thank you, jch, for your ideas, support and your humor.
well, a website redesign was due, so i’m happy to share my new site, eegcreative.com. it focuses on graphic design work as well as my visual artwork (drawing/painting/mixed media). this is a good excuse to turn your phone on silent, grab your laptop and do some surfing.
this blog (the page you’re on right now) will still have updates on what i’m working on and all of that good stuff (drawings, photos, projects) … and facebook/twitter/pinterest are also awesome time suckers. so enjoy yourself and go play.
thom’s market in austin, tx, prides itself in the fact that they sell the best. the best wine, the best beer, the best chocolate … the best variety. it is a fun, laid-back specialty store, welcome to anyone. i strolled along each aisle, falling in love with so many labels and packaging elements. i love package design (sidenote: know anyone needing to hire a designer for packaging?). here is a collection of snapshots i took in the store that i thought were some of the best. tasty AND look good!
