The new version of Essential Editions is evolving and the first edition is ready to publish. You'll find the new version trimmed down a bit, easier to navigate and focused on one theme. Edition One features items for the bath with plush towels, floor mats, shower curtains and more.
I have high hopes for this progressive style portfolio format because for the longest time I’ve felt like my work has been trapped in a bulging box and it can't get out through that tiny little wire. Publishing a new edition monthly allows you to get a focused glimpse into my current thinking while giving you access to quality products worthy of a limited edition. And then we both get to let go and move on, because there is always another edition.
The process of selecting the edition contents has become an interesting journey. You might think that selecting a new edition every month would be a huge undertaking. I love spending as much time as possible making artwork, but I also have a penchant for streamlining effort. So I have developed some new tools to help me sort ideas and track information in a visual way. Now that I'm not worried about how to make products for a website, I can enjoy the push and pull of the creative process, document the results in my tracking tool, then share the best parts with you each month.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the new format and contents!
