You Can Do Anything

Bubby and Bean is an inspiration blog that focuses on living a creative lifestyle.  My mission is to take interesting and pretty things that I come across and share them with all of you, in hopes that you'll find them inspiring as well.  Sometimes I'll share pieces of my life (like the fact that I have a wedding coming up!) and my business adventures, but I usually concentrate on showcasing the works of other artists/designers and companies.  I have talked a little about my work as an eco-friendly fashion designer, but I haven't talked much about my art.  So I decided to share some of that art with you today.

As you can see, I love creating pieces that incorporate typography and lettering, with a focus on positive, encouraging messages for the creative spirit.  And as you may already know, I have a fondness for dogs - especially Bubby dog - and often incorporate dogs in my work.  Although my experience is primarily as an illustrator (with a good old ink pen!), I've really grown to adore graphic art over the past couple of years, and have so much fun designing graphic prints these days as well.
