March Creativity!

March has been a really busy month for me this year. I went to LA for three weeks on vacation, while taking an online design class and finishing up two client projects. March has been so busy that I haven’t had the chance to post much of my work, so I will be playing catch-up a bit in April this year.


Starting with what is most recent. I had the privilege of attending my very first baby cousins baptism this past weekend. She is so sweet and I was very excited to make some personal gift for her  – A pink stroller greeting card and a baby elephant print with her name and birthday on for framing.

I am intending to share a lot more of my work with you in April, but for the time being, you can check out my artist profile on Instagram: @illulinn if you are curious about what I am working on.



Make it in Design – Surface design experimentation

Last week I started a surface design class online to get some more experience and a better understanding of the market. The first week has mainly experimentation with mark making and seeking inspiration. It was been very insightful this far and I want to share some of the work that I have been doing with you guys.



Drawing the same object again and again in everything from 10 seconds to 3 minutes. 

Exploring successful repeat patterns and deconstructing them to understand what shapes goes into the design and then exploring some sketching on my own. 


Exploring sketching with different mediums and strong colors.
