Meet Coco

We're almost ready to finally reveal 'Sweet Coco: The Chocolate Maker's Apprentice'. For now here's a quick look at the lovely Coco, the main character of the book. Written by Jake Perez, illustrated by Sarah Watson.

I love color. Love love love. Such a great part of design. I'd love to share some of my color inspiration with YOU. That's right, you. Feel free to pin, repost and share. Kindly credit Sarah Watson Illustration. Enjoy.

I'm a big fan of quotes. I have a jar full of them. It's nice to look back, read them, and wonder what I was thinking that made me add that quote to the jar. I've been working on making some of my favorites into lettered art. More to come...

I don't want to scare you with two posts in one day...

But I'm pretty sure you need to see this.

BAPA Designs

I am so lucky to have gone to college. I keep listening to American news (living in Brazil, so I don't catch it all the time) and hearing the party candidates mistakes or miswording about college. Whatever. I am so lucky that I went to college because there I met some iiiiincredibly talented ladies. I just can't get over it sometimes.

I'd love to share with you guys Bapa Designs, by Cristina Payne. She's a lovely little gal living in NY designing like a mad woman. See her website here.

She's been designing some menswear lately, but also does women's wear. Below is some recent work of hers that I think is juuuust super. Also, of course, photography by the incredible Lindsey Thorne.
