Did I mention Fall is coming?
Taking a short break from todays studio work, I went out to my small lavender garden. The plants were covered in honeybees. The combination of the bees and lavender inspired todays color collection.
What are you thoughts on this lavender garden color collection?
It’s no secret, Disneyland is the single, biggest influence on my creativity. I am honored and thankful for every opportunity I am given to create original paintings for The Disney Gallery.
At Hallmark Cards Inc., I was fortunate to have the opportunity of developing new store concepts with a fellow Hallmarker. We were given the task of presenting three concepts, two designed independently and a third collectively. The co-worker developed “The Air We Breath,” based around a spiritual theme, the collaborative concept was “The Gingko Leaf,” with a focus on nature, gardening, and home. The concept I developed, was “Paper Waffle.”
Paper Waffle began with a backstory, something commonplace in the entertainment industry, which had never incorporated into Hallmark's their creative process. The backstory for Paper Waffle presented two people (one of which the writer gave the name James, after yours truly), passionate about good design from past and present, who wanted to create a store offering their passions in a loft like setting.
