Tesla WordPress Themes

Hi! I’ve had a few people asking me about where to find good quality, professional, responsive WordPress themes featuring great support at a low cost.

Small Still Life Drawings

When I was in college, I had to take two drawing courses. I had always been OK at drawing — with dedicated practice, I got to be pretty good. Maybe even better than OK! In 2004, I had to draw 50+ small, 2-inch by 2-inch still life drawings. Some took a few minutes, others took

All Kids Theater Non-Profit Branding

Early on in my career, the dominant branding technique for the nonprofit sector was focused solely on communication — tell your friends, call your mom, get the word out.

Joint Baby Shower Invitation

I love events that involve cake: weddings, showers, birthdays, holidays, etc. I also love designing invitations for those events. So, here’s a recent invitation is for a baby shower — phone numbers and address have been anonymized. The client’s only request: no mentioning the word “baby” on the invite! Meredith’s chosen color scheme was beachy,

I love fonts. I suppose that makes sense as I do design things that require the use of them.  I also love anything kitsch, vintage, retro, mid-century modern. So, I’ve put together a list of my favorite vintage inspired ones – some of the fonts I use most often – and thought I’d share them.

B.I. (Before Instagram)

Do you remember the good old days before Instagram when you had to take a photo of your dinner, then get the film developed, then go round all your friends houses to show them a picture of your dinner? No? Me neither. Within less than a minute, your photo is telegraphed to the world. With

What do you want to be when you grow up?

When I was in the 8th grade, my English teacher gave us an assignment: write a benchmark research paper about an occupation that interests you. At 13, no tweenager knows how to answer, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” But I did thanks to the internet. The idea that I could
