Reconnecting & Random Updates

Lately I have been searching for new forms of inspiration and creative outlets to keep my mind clear and focused on my path through all of its changes in elevation, switchbacks because the beautiful views are worth it. These activities are as important as much as the tasks and creations related to mmDesign716. Just as […]

Life is an Adventure

I’ve been keeping pretty busy working out new designs and project ideas. Recently I started working on a typographic block that I intend to have as note cards. I’m pretty excited about this one because I’ve been wanting to include more typography within my printmaking. It’s an area of design that I have a strong […]

Progress and Tall Ships

A big part of my craft is experimenting and running with things regardless of mistakes or weird moments of working out the kinks. I bought this pack of safe wash relief ink from Hyatt’s a while back and only used it once. For anyone following a long on Instagram, you may recall I was doing […]

Driftwood Magnet – Progress

Navigation moon

I had sketched an idea back in May of a compass, moon, and tree. It took a different direction and I ended up abandoning it all together. At a friend’s Halloween party I had a few comments about how I need to print it. But I wasn’t happy, it wasn’t complete.     With new-found […]

Inventory Refresh

Too much time goes between each blog post, but I find that I am far more active on Instagram. As with most social media it’s right there all the time and more easier to post and know that *someone* saw my post. But here is an update on what I have been working on. Since […]
