out of my comfort zone...

i'm going to pretend that i've been a faithful & dutiful blogger & that it hasn't been months since my last post...

i've been toying with getting back into design 'properly' - you might remember years ago i designed stuff for other people - some food packaging, a book cover & some stationery before designing for moda. i enjoyed these experiences immensely - taking direction (however loosely) from someone else who has a 'proper job' (ie an art director) was daunting, but equally rewarding when the final pieces were finished. so in order for me to stick my toes back in the water, i thought i'd better brush up on some skillz and take an online course. from monday i will be a student on the lilla roger's 'make art that sells' (MATS) course and i'm bloody bricking it, not least because it's an intensive 5 week course & the boys are off school for easter for 3 of those weeks. way to go with planning, lu, you idiot. it's to push me out of my comfort zone & designing for all kinds of markets, from bolt fabric (well, yeah, ok, looking forward to that one) and children's books (ekk!) the second part is in october and i've signed up for that too. oh, & i'm writing my second book. (which is why i've been awol - been starting to play around with ideas & researching. as well as procrastinating & eating cake.)


anyway, i will be blogging a bit more regularly if i've time, with images, if not lots of words. but that's OK because i'm pretty sure most of you would rather i shut up now & then anyway. 


i leave you with a collage i made the day i signed up for MATS. i won't lie, i didn't exactly push myself out of my comfort zone here, but slowly, slowly, catchy monkey, yes?

How exciting! I am sure you will have a fantastic time and create some brilliant stuff.

Can't wait to see what you share with us
If it's anything like the collage - which I assume was like a play session - keep up the good work, you'll fly ......

Very exciting :D And I adore the little collage!

Good for you, we all need new challenges, and i have no doubt you'll be top of the class!

Nancy McKenzie said...

I ended up signed up for both as well. The idea of MATS, school holidays and the end of the financial year all happening in the same month is making me laugh in a slightly hysterical way :S

Katy Cameron said...

I'm sure you'll have loads of fun, looking forwards to seeing the results!

Paravent said...

I think it's wonderful to be doing this Lu! Good on you. Your collage is fab too. You go catch those monkeys girl! :) Kx

Charlotte said...

oooooh - exciting! Just chuck the boys in the garden with a football and the biscuit tin. It'll be fine ;-)

Mrs Flying Blind... said...

I'm sure the boys will enjoy going feral for a couple of weeks - have fun x

Best of luck with the course. Hope you've got a new pencil case!

pandchintz said...

How exciting for you! Wishing you all the best with the time juggling!!

Dresden Lane said...

Good luck with that course- its sounds wonderful for sure. I was just playing with some Summersville and loving it- wondering when we might see another moda line from you?
