I've been dreaming of designing prints for clothing for some time but didn't have the time or equipment to print on fabric. So I was very happy when I contacted Tiina Ulkuniemi of Rogue clothing asking if she might need some designs done and she did! We are planning on 2-3 designs to be printed on skirts, tops and tote bags, I'm currently doing sketches for the pictures.

Then there's another printing job, one for a local cat rescue organization. They are printing shopping bags to be sold at events and asked if I would like to provide them with a design. Naturally I did, it's good to be able to help homeless kitties and making graphics is an excellent way for me to be of use!

The last project is for an old friend who's a burlesque performer. She inquired if I could come up with some extravagant jewellery for her upcoming act and we are looking on building the set from a base of Indian bridal jewellery, with added sparkle of course! It's such an interesting project, I love working on very flashy, big jewellery, and as a special limitation it needs to be easy to dance in and not snag onto props used. That's some challenge but I like it.
I'll be posting occasional pictures of how things are progressing so you, my lovely readers, can be the first ones to know :) I haven't done much graphic design lately but I'm itching to hone my skills!
