Wow! Thanks, dooce!


Check it out! I'm on the Daily Style!

Wow! I can't believe it! Heather Armstrong author and creator of dooce.com actually featured my letterpress print on the Daily Style section of her blog! Holy cow! Heather recently came to Hallmark (where I work as an illustrator) to talk to us about what it's like to be a pro blogger, a wife and a first-time mom. She gave a great talk and I got a lot out of what she had to say. Not because I'm a mom or a pro blogger (by any means) but because she is refreshingly honest, which I find very admirable. As a way to say to show our thanks to her for coming, we wanted to give her a piece of artwork. My friend Tina called to ask if I happened to have anything on hand. By sheer luck, I had one of my letterpress prints in one of my flat files. It was an honor to have been asked - and she loved it! After the lecture, Tina brought Heather and her husband John into our studio to meet me. So cool!

Thank you Heather for posting my piece and for coming and talking to us about what you do and how you do it. All my best, maura
