I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

Graphics in the bag

Let's get a little graphic … artsy. To my extreme glee, my freelance graphic design gig has picked up a little. Here is a big one I recently put to bed …

Click the link above to see a Flash presentation I updated for the Women's Fund, a local charity. Former instructor Diana Resch passed this on to me to help get my name out in the local graphic designer pool.

I should have gotten a photo of me because I actually gussied up a bit for this luncheon. I wore a pretty black lace and gray top from LucieLu. Speaking of the gal who runs the online shop, I've done a bit more design work for her, too.

Working off the same look of the sale, I'll next design some typography illustrations for some vintage postcards. She wants to add a little thank-you to each package she sends out.

I have three logo projects in the works. First up is one for a knitting-loom shop business that is right up my alley. Next I'll will turn Wisconsin into a knit mitten for The Bay Area Knitters Guild. And No. 3 is Stitch 1, Stitch 2 for the former Craft Junkie. Yep, I notice a theme here. I can't help if my acquaintances all tend to be knitters. I can do much more though! So if you're looking for a logo, business card, web art, etc., send me an e-mail and we'll chat. Check out my portfolio. I'll be ready for new jobs in January 2011.

While we're in the realm of graphic design, here's one more moment of personal pride. Nicole of Hello Sweetcheeks sent me a Francesco Mugnai blog link that includes my business cards (and hers!) among the best of September. All that eyelet hammering was not for naught.
