20 Subtle Textures

Ever need to give that little added touch to help breathe life into your cold, hard digital artwork? Look no more—I have just the resource for you!

Golden Handcuffs T-Shirt

Golden Handcuffs
Breaking free of your golden handcuffs can be one of the scariest decisions of your life. I know, because I left a secure paying job directly out of college to pursue my freelance career full-time. It was because of that leap I was forced to show up every day – to make a living for myself rather than depend on the benefits given by someone else.

I continue to learn and grow in the direction I desire everyday, and it’s all thanks to that initial risk I took to break free of my golden handcuffs. [Read more…]

My New Rubber-stamped Business Cards

Although I hardly ever work with clients face-to-face or go out networking, there’s still the occasion where I’d like to hand someone my business card – at least one that I’m proud of. Also, when the holiday season comes around and I mail out holiday cards to my best clients, I like to include a little piece of my business. I’ve never come close to running out of a traditional 500 order of business cards, so this time around I kept the quantity low – to 50 cards – but the quality high. I redesigned my new business card to be timeless and personable. I only used essential information and put my rubber-stamp logo to use on the blank side. I had my cards printed through Moo, using their Luxe Business Cards with the red seam of color in the middle layer. They look and feel amazing! Take a look for yourself and enjoy.
