limeproject calendar cover

(viewed 4186 times)
the cover art for the limeproject calendar, exported straight from the original art.

the design came about because the photos we got from the models varied widely, running the full spectrum of style and photographic quality. so, the challenge was to come up with a design for the cover and the inside pages that'd tie them together despite those differences. many of the photos have an outdoors or nature theme, and i thought the curving vine scrollwork would complement that, as well as give it a feminine but not girly feel.

calendar matchprints

(viewed 2065 times)
the matchprints and dummy for the limeproject calendar arrived today.
only a few small things needed changing, which is surprisingly good
considering this is a printer i'd never used before. so, one new PDF
was generated and sent over to them this afternoon.here's me, holding up the gigantic roll of matchprints.

coffee in beer counts, right?

me, the morning of the photo shoot. i was out of coffee. this was a
Bad Thing. so, i cracked open a beer that was brewed with coffee. a
slightly different effect than i intended, but not a bad one.

what's he building in there?

he was singing, 'what's he building in there?' which ended up coming
through in the shot inadvertently.

wrist tattoo & bio

(viewed 2141 times)
because this makes bronxelf giggle, i'm including my bio i wrote for the dread limesuckers calendar project.


I'm a geek of all trades: artist, writer, illustrator, and general IT lackey. I'm also a cancer survivor. Some people would now be writing the inspirational part of this bio and giving you an uplifting message -- something about angels and sunsets is usual, I hear -- but really, having cancer sucked fetid goat testicles, and I'm damn glad that mine's been gangpressed and sent packing off to some lab for posterity.

So when Avril asked me to help out with the limesuckers project, I agreed, in spite of an already impossible schedule of procrastination and deadlines and working on poisoning my liver. Yes, I was petrified when I had to have biopsies, but happily drink single-malt to get through my days as an art director. Hey, I've got a stereotype to live up to, you know. And that's hard work.

Irony is the operating force of the universe, so when I, a lifelong tomboy and Honorary Guy, got cervical cancer, I knew all was as it should be. I'm not a very feminine or girly sort of woman, so of course this is the cancer I get. Luckily, it's also one of the easiest cancers to have if you catch it early, which I did. After becoming more intimate with my ob/gyn than I was with my ex-husband, and three cone biopsies, I can say that I'm fine.

I consider having kicked cancer's ass one of my most notable accomplishments, right up there with winning 11 AMR awards for my designs, being accepted to grad school in eight minutes, and being the Mammoth Lakes Oktoberfest Women's Log-Sawing Champion two years in a row.
