Color Ways

Color combinations and inspirations are everywhere—nature, fashion, food, interior design... To contain them for quick reference, I keep a color section in my sketchbook of magazine tears, fabric swatches, and written descriptions for when no picture exists. One note reads like a recipe: celadon & cool mint + royal blue splash + equal parts golden yellow, sand, cream.

I love color.

When faced with a blank tote and a rainbow of ink possibilities, I get excited and simultaneously overwhelmed by the potential. So much potential. This mag tear helped reign in my imagination and inspired my printing. 

And I think it's safe to say that gold adds a touch of fabulous to everything. Look at that sparkle!
