This weekend I took the bold step of framing some of my designs. I realized that simply posting the images in my Etsy shop, or sharing them on my blog was not enough. It was time to walk my talk – to enjoy having them on display on my own walls.
I guess it’s my way of committing to my creative process. After all, how can I ask others to invest in my work if I’m not willing to do the same?
Isn’t it fun to just play around with a design? I love starting out with no plan in mind and just letting it build bit by bit, day by day. Here’s the latest version of a design I’ve been playing with for the past few days. It is a work in progress, and I have no idea how it will end up.
Another work in progress!
I might use it for one of my escherly products, and I might not. You see, the outcome isn’t important. The joy lies in the moment by moment unfolding!
I’m filled with joy and gratitude today. Someone wonderful wants my pencil case 🙂 As a designer, there’s nothing more exciting than finishing a creation and finding out that someone else loves it as much as you do!
Here’s another card design. I’m having a lot of fun creating them! Can you tell?
Tree of Love ~ escherly 2015
By the way, I design under the name “escherly“. It’s a tribute to M.C. Escher, the Dutch graphic artist who has been an inspiration to me for years. If you’re not familiar with his work, do check out the link. It’s amazing.
