Is blogging dying?

Hi my dear friend!

I have to admit I was really bad and was not in the mood of writing my usual Wednesday's posts. I was even considering to stop with this blog and make a static web site... and then... this email arrived to my mailbox yesterday:

Is Blogging Dying? This is What I Think! by Mayi Carles

So, no I am not deleting this blog, I am not making a static web site, I am keeping this blog but will consider to do some changes so I can include my portfolio and display my products a bit better.

I was not active for a really long time so would like to share some of the projects I was working on during this long period.

I was really honored when a girl from a community I was leading while living in Doha - QatART,  asked me to create a logo for her small business. She wanted to have an illustration of an animal meerkat and to be cheerful and colorful. So I started with some sketches and once she decided on a sketch and a color palette I made an illustration and hand calligraphy for her logo. She also asked me to design her business cards. So here is my process, hope you will enjoy it :)

Another project were two personalized hand painted cloud pillows, which are great as a decor in a kids rooms.

I couldn't resist to make a little painting for my niece's first birthday, and I've also created a birthday card with that illustration and her older brother (4yo) wrote her name on a piece of paper which I turned into vector and added to the card. After posting the illustration on my social media I was asked to do a toy so I made a toy as well and I love it, I love all about this little unicorn Luci :D
