Bird Thank You Card

8 Apr 2014 9:00am

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology sent my mom birding kits for all her students where she teaches. She asked me to create a custom thank you card for her students to sign, with a compilation of some of my hand drawings of local birdies. This is what I created! To see more of my fine art bird drawings, come take a peek at my portfolio.

Project Ice Hockey Construction

2 Apr 2014 9:00am

Not too long ago, I joined a fun website called Postcrossing. If you are into snail mail, mail art, pen pals, etc… you have maybe heard of Postcrossing. In fact, quite a few of my customers come to my shop in search of a variety of postcard choices for Postcrossing.

The goal of the Postcrossing project, is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world. It is a fun concept. Many users include what kind of postcards they would like to see in particular. (For example, my profile there says that I would like postcards in the genre of, birds (no owls!), astronomy/space or, classic rock music from the Woodstock era.

How does this relate to my newest design of Project Ice Hockey Construction? Quite simply, one of the first 5 peoples addresses I received mentioned that they loved Ice Hockey. That in fact… pretty much ALL that they liked was Ice Hockey. For me… it was an excuse to create Project Ice Hockey!

Weave Architecture Postcards

24 Mar 2014 9:00am

One of my greatest friends and mentors is the founder and owner of Weave Architecture here in San Antonio, Texas. Becky just does everything above and beyond, and doesn’t stop short with architecture and project management! This year, she hired me to create her New Years greeting postcards for her clients, and not only was I honored… but knew that I also would need to go above and beyond!

Featuring the San Antonio, Texas city skyline… and taking hints from her design and personal style that I know Becky for, I created these New Years postcards with a pattern motif on both front and back. Happy 2014!

Stars of Jen

21 Mar 2014 9:00am

This isn’t an astronomy blog, but as I have mentioned a couple of times in the past… it is one of my favorite hobbies. I am notorious for picking up on-going side projects, and this blog post about one of them! One of my earliest and longest lasting hobbies is studying the stars. Tying astronomy, my passion for art, illustration and photography into one endeavor just made sense! I have created a site entitled “Stars of Jen“, and it is where you will see some of my hand drawn studies and photography of the evening sky.

Here are a few examples of the night sketch studies I have done this winter. A couple of them have even been featured on the Astronomy Sketch of the Day site! (Yes, there is a small yet vibrant community of night-sky artists.)

I mainly observe in my (not so very often!) free time (and obviously at night)… so be sure to check back soon and often… clear skies!

Dallas Aero Save the Dates

18 Mar 2014 9:00am

For this military pilot couple, my standard bi-plane Aero Save the Dates just wouldn’t suffice! We changed the design of the plane to the exact jet-aircraft this couple pilots. Since they are both stationed in Afghanistan at the moment, I offered mailing services for them domestically here in the United States.

Featured in the SA Business Journal!

Just at the end of last year, I was contacted by the San Antonio Business Journal for an interview about my success with selling full time on Etsy. The article was entitled “Craftypreneurs: Etsy gives local artisans a new twist on the American Dream” and everyone I spoke with there was so kind. Special thanks to freelance writer Jenny Halpin, Editor Donna Tuttle and Photographer Lyndsey Johnson!

Wow! Almost a full page feature on page 30!
