IT'S A NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year!! It's the first day of 2013, and I'm so excited to start a fresh new year!

2012 brought about some really amazing changes in my life. After many years in one place, I moved and changed my full-time job—both of which have breathed a new energy and perspective into my life & work. I also had some really fun illustration jobs for some great new clients, got the chance to direct some amazing artists on book covers recognized by Society of Illustrators & 3x3 Magazine, and I finally opened my Etsy shop toward the end of the year in time for a few great holiday sales. So, I'm feeling great about the year past, already have some new projects in the works—and am very inspired to push my goals even further in the year ahead!

I'm not one to typically set resolutions, but I'm feeling that this quote by Helen Keller will be my "motto" for 2013. I've had it taped to my desk for years, and finally got around to lettering it!

Here's hoping 2013 brings success, health, & happiness to all!
