I have some really neat news! Blend licensed my Feather N Stitch collection to use for a stationery and bag line. It was pretty surreal to go and take pics of it at the recent AmericasMart here in Atlanta. The collection will be traveling to the National Stationery show in New York and some other conventions to shop to buyers. I can't wait to see it out in stores. I am using swear words of happiness in my head right now;) This, the the fabric collection and wanting to show at Surtex are the series of events that prompted me to quit my job last March. The non-compete clauses can be tough to work with if you have a full time gig in the same industry as your personal work. I knew I wanted freelance in the long run, and these events sort of made the decision easier. Luckily I had just enough work to do it.
As you can tell I am all over the place with what I like to do with my art. Creepy illustrations and friendly stationery all in one brain, haha. Whatever tickles your fancy, right? You don't have to be cornered into one area, as long as it feels like one person created it! Anyway, thank you to Anna Griffin and the others that worked on this line. I am pretty excited. I loved the vintage elements in the display, right up my alley.
