I’m so excited to share the second installment of Inspired Translation! Jessica from Creative Index and I are collaborating on our bi-weekly column, and I’m loving this inspiration kick to make something new :)

The quote:

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.

And that’s my translation! This one was so much fun, I love the nostalgic, summer feeling of the image. Those muted colors are just so soothing.

Don’t forget to head over to Jessica’s blog and she how she translated the image!

Inspired Translation // 1

I’m so excited to be sharing a new bi-weekly column with Jessica from Creative Index! When Jessica approached me and asked if we wanted to collaborate, I was so excited! We came up with the idea of Inspired Translation – we would take one image and one quote, and create a design around it.

The quote:

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

And that’s my translation! The image was so fun and cheerful, I really enjoyed using these colors and patterns.

J. Crew Illustrations

So last winter, I created these little illustrations for one of the PVD Lady Project events at our local J. Crew, and I realized I never shared them with you! Whoops.

I would still totally wear all these looks now. Even though Spring is in the air in the fashion world, we’ve been getting hit hard with snow, so I’m still completely in winter fashion mode! Is it warming up where you are?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope everyone has a nice Valentine’s day today and eats lots of chocolates (pretty much the entire reason this Holiday exists). In honor of the day, here is a new illustration based on the Honor Pre-Fall 2013 Collection.
