Last Minute Mayhem...

This week has been a real doozy - and it's not even halfway finished! My "last weekend of productivity" before my upcoming show on Saturday was a total flop. I had worked my shoulder and neck into such a state that I couldn't turn my head for two days. I think it was the result of too much stress and too much printing and maybe some ill-fated shoulder exercises at the gym. Anyways, the injury is almost gone but not quite, and has hampered my printing abilities substantially.

Above is a photo of some gift tags I printed up before the shoulder meltdown. In my incapacitated state this weekend, I managed to punch holes in the tags and thread through some ribbon - all while lying down, and while watching Victoria Beckham's "Coming to America". I'm ashamed, but I did watch it...the whole thing.

Above is a photo of a boxer motif I illustrated and printed as a notecard. I've never created any pet-related items before - so we'll see how this one sells. I also illustrated a ballerina in arabesque attitude position and printed her as well as a notecard with chocolate brown envelopes.

The rest of this week will be spent meeting with various clients and wrapping things up before the show on Saturday. I have so much to do still it's not funny. Luckily my Mum has volunteered to help me finish up some packaging on Friday...thank goodness for mothers!

his week I am also working on the design of a custom calling card for a new client. I am very pleased with how the design is turning out and look forward to posting photos when the printing is complete.

Happy letterpressing!
