I’m cheating and using an existing design for this week’s Illustration Friday theme, transportation. This personalized kids’ banner I designed a while back came to mind immediately. On a personal note, my daughter has a sudden fascination with the “cool bus” (school bus), to the point where I may need to print one of these posters with her name for her birthday!
This week’s Illustration Friday theme is “proverb,” and I chose “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”… unless that apple is a witch’s poison apple! I’m in the mood for all things Halloween, so I’ve been looking for an excuse to doodle something spooky. I’m considering making this available as a seasonal print in the Calobee Doodles shop, although I fear all the black-on-black will be difficult to reproduce.
The Calobee Doodles website has an updated look for fall! Nothing huge, just some fall colors and a few acorns scattered about. It’s so fun (and easy) to change themes with this system, I can’t wait to start on winter’s theme.
Speaking of which, the website is getting some great press among design blogs lately… many thanks to the following folks for including Calobee Doodles in their web design showcases:
It may be hard to believe, but now is a good time to start thinking about seasonal marketing–Halloween will be here before you know it! Mason Girl Cupcakes knows that, and she requested a few custom postcard designs for the upcoming holidays. This was my favorite from the bunch.
I was asked to design a 2-page printable info sheet and menu for Mason Girl Cupcakes & Tea. I’m particularly fond of the menu page with the giant cupcake watermark in the background.
