Finding the perfect color palette might be one of my favorite challenges when starting new work. I usually spend way too much time picking colors only to go back to my first initial instinct, but I think for this series we've got some winners.
I was having lunch with a friend recently and they began talking about gearing up for the 100 Day Project. If you don' t know about this goal setting phenomenon, its a challenge in which you assign yourself a set of personalized goals and then venture out to achieve them, a project a day for a 100 days.
This rocket ship way of smashing your to do list got me thinking, "what would I want to achieve in 100 days?"........Well, create the animal alphabet of course!
So for the next 100 days we will be creating 26 prints of our favorite animals from A-Z, each original pice will be up for grabs as they're released and at the end of the challenge we will be releasing the full collection of prints in one perfectly packaged zoo in our web store.
Follow along right here or on our Instagram and be sure to check out the 100 Day Project to see who else is tackling the challenge!
We are thrilled to be releasing something SUPER DUPER SPECIAL (and long awaited for)! Introducing LOOPER : A Little Zine for Little Humans!

Last week myself and three other local artists were asked by Savannah Magazine to create a cover for their 25th Anniversary issue.
Each of us were allowed to let our imaginations run wild and I chose to Illustrate one of my favorite places on the planet (the city I call home) for the cover and was sure to include as many little personalities as possible.
Can you spy?
- A scary disguise
- A couple of bakers
- A southern tour guide
- A sweet treat
- A cool creative
- A pup with a pal
- A trendy brew
If you'd like to check out my cover for yourself, head on over to the Jepson Center in downtown Savannah GA where it will be on display for the next two weeks! A huge thank you to Savannah Magazine for bringing me on board!
This spring I was asked by the Girl Scouts of the USA to design a series of graphics and installation pieces for the new Girls Writing the World Exhibit at the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace in Savannah, Georgia. It was a thrill to work with such an incredible organization and I am proud to say that I have been a Girl Scout since the age of 8 (so this was a dream in so many ways).
The Exhibit Logo, Labeling, Introductory Text, Mailers, PoeTree Installation, and Bench Fabric were all designed using hand-lettering techniques and inspired by the history of women in writing and storytelling. Being able to take my love of Illustration and hand-lettering and apply it to fit the needs of a designed space for a client was such a fun challenge. If you're in the Savannah area, be sure to check out the Girls Writing the World Exhibit at The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace located at 10 E. Oglethorpe Avenue, open daily.
Strawberry Moth is also excited to announce that our Printed Pennant Flags are now available in the Museums Gift Shop!
