Oscar Poster Designs 2021

I just concluded my Oscar poster design series for this year by watching the Best Picture winner last night, “Nomadland”. Oof, that film will stick with me for a while. What an amazing reminder of the beauty and fragility of life. My other favs out of the ones I watched were “Soul” (animation, obv), andContinue reading “Oscar Poster Designs 2021”

Seasons of change.

Last week our little house on 221st street sold. While on a bike ride soon after, it hit me how many big seasons have happened these last few years! Pets come and gone, two kids, a pandemic, two book deals, and many more ups and downs. Whoa. I had so much fun staying up lateContinue reading “Seasons of change.”

We are finally making our way through all the seasons of the genius comedy that is “Schitt’s Creek”. (Yes I know we are late to the party – YOU try watching TV with toddlers!)

Queer colouring pages!

I did something fun with OutChristian – an awesome organization that works to connect LGBTQ people of faith! They asked me if I would want to design & draw some queer-themed colouring pages, to remind us all that we will once again be able to gather with friends in our communities. Of course, I neverContinue reading “Queer colouring pages!”

Local travel posters

Since I work full-time in children’s animation and illustrating kids books, sometimes I love to dust off my graphic design skills for fun. I have always loved those vintage-esque travel posters – but who is traveling anywhere right now?? Well, they are opening up some local things around us, which helps ease the Groundhog DayContinue reading “Local travel posters”

It’s my fav time of year! I have loved the Academy Awards since I was a little kid, and my love of film has only grown since then. A few years ago, I decided to do a poster for any of the nominated films that I managed to see. I don’t get to use myContinue reading “Oscar Posters 2020”

I managed to watch and design 8 out of the 9 Best Picture Nominees for the Oscars this year – one of my fav times of the year! These were all fun to watch and design. Congrats to all the films nominated, and especially “Shape of Water” for winning Best Picture!

My Oscar Posters 2017

This is my tradition of watching the Oscar-nominated films, and then doing my minimalist version of the posters. This past Feb I had MANY more intentions of doing a lot more posters – but it turns out having a baby takes a lot of your time! LOL. Here are the four I managed to squeakContinue reading “My Oscar Posters 2017”
