"B" Day....

Well, here I am, officially putting "my blog thang" down as of right now.  Correct, you guessed it, this post has nothing to do with Beyonce or anybody else's "B" day for that matter, but the birth of my first blog post today.  You can read more about me in my profile of course, but I am an interior designer and illustrator who is absolutely passionate about the world of design and design illustration.


I have a lot of past and recent works I will be posting soon.  Below is one of my latest renderings I completed as a thank you note after meeting with one of my absolute "blogger faves", Naomi Stein at Design Manifest.  She took time out of her busy schedule to get together and chit chat about the world of blogging.  She loved it, posted it and gave me a gracious "shout out" on her blog:  http://www.designmanifest.blogspot.com/2012/06/sweetest-gift-ever.html, which was so amazing to me..

No matter if I am illustrating one of my own design projects or working for someone who just commissions a drawing,  I loooove this creative process.   I was self taught early on, moved on to some formal instruction in  school, but gained so much more as I continued teaching myself new things and adding guidance from some phenomenal designers and artists along the way.  Keep watching, I plan on interviewing some of these very cool "peeps" soon so you can see the great work they do! 
  

The drawings you see here were done in marker. The one above, on my banner, I did right after Naomi posted my rendering.  I was inspired by the appreciation and knew that I was feeling that "now or never" in the pit of my stomach. So I decided to jump right in.

One of my earlier renderings


I work with markers, pencil, computer renderings, watercolors, 3D models and animations, Photoshop, yadda, yadda, yadda  it's all fun, I love it all and I plan to show you all that I love in design. The elevation rendering below is a more structured vs. loose drawing for a kitchen design concept project I was working on.

Rendered elevation drawings

These are just a couple of teeny, tiny examples of work that I have done, but stay tuned, much much MUCH more to come.  My plan is to share my designs, drawings, renderings/illustrations and design inspiration from any and everywhere.  Whistles wet yet? I hope so.


Oh yeah, here is where the "magic happens"...well some of it anyway....




Hope to see more of you!  Adeus!
