Did you hear the news?? I'm so excited about what's coming up for Foxly Handmade this year!
You might not know that I designed a line of quilting fabrics in the past for a fabric manufacturer, and that I have always been interested in surface design.
I let my interest in illustration fall by the wayside a few years ago, but I've recently picked it back up and I'm loving the creative outlet of drawing.
Working with artists to create my line of zipper pouches has been so much fun, and clearly you love the work that they do too! That's not going anywhere, I'm actively working on new collaborations with new artists this year.
So, I am super excited, and somewhat nervous, to share that I'm working on my own series of illustrations for brand new zipper pouches that will be coming your way. My plan is to release a new pouch design every month or two as a limited run.
That's right -- I will be the next featured artist for a collection of zipper pouches!
Giving myself this creative outlet is a way to challenge myself to share more with you creatively, and I'm really looking forward to giving you something fresh to collect every month.
In the below picture, I'm pointing to a framed illustration created by my great-grandpa Daniel Fox in 1895 (!!), when he was a teenager. It's the inspiration behind the first of my pouches.
I never met my great-grandfather personally, but I got to hear a bit more about him from my dad.
This collection will be LIVE on Friday, February 12th at 8am MST for email subscribers.... see you then!
Here in Albuquerque, fall is in the air. With fall comes a variety of feelings for me -- it's a physical reminder of the passage of time, and is the closing chapter of summer.
Though summers are hot here in the desert, I love this time. My flower garden is in full swing, weekends are full with camping trips and farmers' markets, and hanging out on the patio with friends well into the evenings is commonplace.
When fall arrives, a sense of urgency appears for me. I feel compelled to wrap up yard projects and get the inside of the house cozy for winter.
