PRINTABLE VACATION ART FOR LOVELY INDEED

Chelsea at Lovely Indeed asked me to help with a really fun project – drawing her dream cruise destination!

She picked Capri and the Amalfi coast, and this is what I came up with:

THE MODERN ALPHABET

Authoring a children’s book has been a LONG harbored dream of mine, and I’m ecstatic to share that I can finally say it: I’m an author!

This is exactly the kind of alphabet book I would have been completely obsessed with as a child. I wanted to make something that was visually exciting and would appeal to kids, but that would also provide a bit of a challenge. The words inside are written in both print and script – making this a book that can grow with your child as they learn to read and write. Some of the words are simple (two, or three letters long) while others may be more difficult.

This book is for the future creators, designers, and artists of the world. If you want to infuse your child’s education with a little creative flair, this is the book for you. It would also make a great gift for friends who are expecting, or nieces and nephews if you don’t have kids of your own! No matter what though, it’s only for the coolest babies in the world. So gift accordingly.

Hopefully this is the first of many books to come! It is currently available for purchase through Blurb, Amazon, and BarnesAndNoble.com

VENUES IN COLOR

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen some of the photos and videos from the wedding we attended on Friday. I LOVE all weddings, but I’ll admit I was extra excited for this one because I got to contribute in a really fun way.

Our friends Mary and Mike (the newlyweds!) asked me to create 17 custom illustrations to be used as table cards at the reception. They each feature a different music venue in the Los Angeles area where they’ve seen a show together (what a fun idea, right?). When we started working on them, the only direction they gave me was “think strong lines and fun colors! We’d love for you to be creative.”

This is one of my favorite projects to date – it all came together so effortlessly, and I genuinely enjoyed creating every single piece (thanks Mary and Mike!). Now I get to share it with you! I’ll be posting some more images on Instagram over the next couple weeks under the hashtag #VenuesInColor, follow along @roymeister if you’d like to see!

In addition to just showing you what we put together, I’ve also made every print in this series available as a poster in my brand new Society6 shop. You can see and purchase them all right here.

And here are a few quick photos I snapped at the wedding!

WORDS COLLECTION

My new Words Collection is finally here! I’ve been working on this collection for a few weeks, searching for phrases that were fun, different, and that I would want to carry around on the back of my phone. I’ve added a little flair to each phrase by using icon cut-outs so you get a peek of the phone beneath the case! (Wouldn’t that be especially fun if you got a glitter case!?)

The collection has cases for travelers, emoji fanatics, moms, dog lovers, cat lovers, girl bosses, waffle aficionados, and more! See for yourself below, and shop the entire collection right here! Hope you’re as pumped about it as I am!

I also had a few of these rose enamel pins left over from the holidays and finally listed them in my Etsy shop! Wouldn’t they make a cute Valentine’s Day gift? These roses will never die. 😉

FIRED UP, READY TO GO

Yesterday, The Atlantic shared a beautifully illustrated video on Facebook about the origins of Barack Obama’s “Fired up, ready to go” chant. This is what I’m thinking about today, and this is the mantra I’ll be adopting for the next four years.

If you’re in need of a little daily reminder to stay vigilant and that your voice matters, watch The Atlantic’s video then download the free desktop background I created below. Click on the image and it will open in a new window. Right click and save the image to your computer.

Fired up, Ready to go

Happy inauguration day.

COUNTRY MARKETS COLLABORATION

I’m thrilled to finally be able to share a big project I worked on over the summer: packaging labels for Country Markets! They’re a small chain of grocery stores in New York that started in the Bronx. If you live in the area, look for their assortment of trail mixes, dips, and juices, now featuring labels I designed and illustrated in collaboration with the store! We tried to give each item a distinct personality through it’s packaging. What do you think? Did we succeed?
