Creating a Blog and Illustrations for my Sister-In-Law

So, my sister-in-law absolutely loves to write. She's been wanting her own blog for a very long time. I decided this Christmas would be the perfect opportunity to give her the ultimate gift. I not only created a blog site for her, but I created a personal logo and illustrated portrait for her about page.

Abby had the nickname of 'Little Birdy' during her year abroad in Germany. I thought creating a bird related logo for her site would be perfect!

I put together a quick illustration/portrait of Abby. The perfect addition to her about page. I wanted to create an elegant self portrait of Abby. Yellow is a very hipster color right now (Supposedly 'in').

I had the privilege of hearing a sneak preview to the book she is writing. If you want to read some great short stories, I highly recommend checking out her new site :)

Who am I in a nutshell? In short, I’m a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in Madison, Alabama. Although I’m extremely skilled in logo and print design, my one true calling is hand-drawn illustration and typography. To me, there’s nothing more thrilling than brainstorming up a new design or illustration on a fresh piece of paper and the excitement of seeing it to fruition.
