I've been a busy woman the past six months or so. Planning a wedding, a clothing line, my freelance design career and portfolio. I've been juggling so many projects on top of trying to get back into my running routine. It's been a wonderful and challenging journey so far though. I have two more paintings almost finished that I can't wait to post about. One is a pool table lounge scene. The other painting is over-sized and glows in the dark. So it's like two paintings; twice the work. The one in the light and the one in the dark. Hopefully I can take some neat pics of it.
I've been expanding my graphic design skills from just printing and production design to identity and branding, as well as web design. I'm loving the Adobe Dreamweaver program and have coded several sites. I just need to get them hosted. I'm learning that process at the moment. My goal is to be building and hosting sites for my clients by February. Check out my online portfolio to see some of what I've been working on this year.
I've had a blast playing with my Nikon camera and doing amateur photography. I've done a couple photo shoots and just love editing and enhancing photos. The most challenging shoot was with an energetic 5 year old. She was amazing though, and came up with so many ideas! She ran the show and we got so many cute photos it was hard not to post process all 300 frames! I also love doing the photography for the clothing company I started.
My company, Madd Industries, was launched back in June 2013. Hence my lack of posting the last few months. I have so many great designs for apparel and jewelry coming up and just can't wait to get them out to the world. Madd Industries is all about the crazy and the beautiful. The eccentric and the insane. I can't wait to see where it all winds up.
My dreams just keep getting bigger and greater! This year has been all about making those dreams realities.
