So I finished my illustration from this year’s Designer Vaca! & I actually ended up doing two!
Kathleen submitted this shot with two photos in it, so I just drew them both.
So stoked for her and her baby boy! Thanks to everyone else who sent me stuff. There’s a high likelihood that I might draw a couple more when I have some spare time.

Like last year, this year’s Designer Vaca was inspiring and awesome!
I roomed with Shauna again this year, and we spent our time talking all things Branch.
I got to catch up with all the awesome people I met last year, and also made a handful of smart and sassy new friends!
It was so great to spend time surrounded by so many talented ladies.
To get a better idea of what it was like, check out this sweet video from Jay Adores.

I recently attended Designer Vaca in Palm Springs, which was really awesome and inspiring! Unfortunately, I’ve been traveling a bunch and haven’t been able to post about it.
To tide you over until I can- here are some illustrations I did of me and Shauna from last year’s conference.

I haven’t posted these anywhere, except for the one below, which is obviously on the front page of this website- but here it is uncropped and high res!

To up the ante a little bit, and encourage me to keep making and collaborating with all the lovely ladies I met at DV, I’m inviting all you ladies who attended to send me a photo you took at this year’s conference. I’ll draw an illustration similar to the ones above from your photo and I’ll include in my post for this year!

But I only have time to draw ONE!

So comment here, email me, facebook message- just send me something highish res and I’ll pick one, okay?
Send me your faves!
