buttermilk doughnuts with powdered sugar
Are you guys familiar with Stonewall Kitchen? The charming kitchen supply and specialty foods retailer out of York, Maine. We are huge fans of their entire line of homemade doughnuts and made these yesterday for breakfast. As someone who takes baked goods very seriously, I was very happy with how these turned out and had to snap a shot with my phone in the morning light. : )

I wanted to share a little preview of a children's book series, I just wrapped up for Capstone Press. Each of these stories are centered around a quirky origami character, and offer a fun take on the science of our everyday world. The samples here are from the first book, in which a 'dirt diggin' pup and his earthworm friend, explore the ecosystem of a traditional Japanese garden. More info and samples to come!
While working on the project, I came to rely on some great origami resources online. Check out the following links.

NTHP Promotional Materials: folders, business cards, note cards, and banners
design: Mila Arrisueno
illustration: Jamey Christoph
We also developed a storyboard concept with an animated version of the NTHP logo for internal use. I'm hoping we will develop it further, down the road.
This was a very cool job for an organization very near and dear, The National Trust for Historic Preservation. Collaborating with Mary, Creative Director at NTHP and Mila, Art Director at Grafik here in Alexandria, we created a collection of 'bright and sunny' scenic illustrations to freshen up the NTHP identity. The challenge was unique, to design a sort of super landscape composed of historic elements from the eastern shore line, the interior, and west coast of the country. It was designed to work in its entirety (potential mural) or as individual scenes for use in publications and promotional material. After a lot of hard work, I'm happy to share our efforts here today - heartfelt thank you to Mary and Mila for the incredible opportunity.
Let's save and treasure our beautiful historic buildings and sites!

Just got the Fall Workbook in the mail and wanted to share here, along with my page from the Spring Workbook. Very nice page design and layout Pat and Piper! I like how the script lettering contrasts with the clean design, kudos to graphic designer, George Zipparo!

I wanted to share a few other photos I recently shot of the Washington skyline. My day began insanely early that morning, thanks to my restless dogs. Rather than watch tv, I grabbed my camera and headed out for a morning drive. I'm not usually an early riser, but this felt like a special occasion and I would soon discover why. As I walked up the hill to the Netherlands Carillon and looked down at the view of the city, all I could see were clusters of colorful flowers everywhere! Jackpot! Minutes later, I was almost giddy, laying in the slick grass to get the best angles. Visually, it was almost overwhelming, the way foreground colors and textures were relating to the day breaking sky. Each flower seemed to lend something different to the iconic DC skyline. Sure it was way too early in the morning and the white polo (I was wearing) will probably never be as bright white, but these pics made it all worth while. : )
