Its been a busy month commission wise for me! So you'll have to excuse my lack of posting. Hopefully these illustrations I was hired to create will make up for my absence. I've started using a tablet for all of my work and its opened up a whole new world of possibilities. I'm currently borrowing my generous roommate's tablet, but I feel really inspired to buy my own and really get adept to using one. 

 Thanks goes out to these 3 bloggers, Amanda of Emerald Heels, Candyce of *Right-click Save*, and Inna of SkippySays for commissioning me to make their blog headers! It was so fun working with each of them to create their own vision. If you'd like to commission me, shoot me and email at vizbasix@gmail.com and we'll talk about rates and bounce back and forth a few ideas! 

 Thanks for reading!

Blogger Sketch Sunday [The Blonde Salad]

Holy moly! Its the Fifty-first edition of Blogger Sketch Sunday! This week's post features Chiara, of The Blonde Salad whose blog is located in Italy.

3 Reasons I love this blog:
-You can't help but be a little star-struck looking through this blog, Chiara has racked up quite a list of modeling gigs, style awards, and numerous collaborations with big name labels. Her blog highlights how successful and fashion blog can become and it kind of blows my mind.
-There is a reason she was named the biggest breakout street style star of the year by the New York Times. Her style is effortlessly chic. No outfit she puts together would look like any hum-drum 'trendy' display at the mall. Style like this is impeccable and seems impossible to immulate. She is just one of those girls who always looks so put together without looking like she's trying at all.
-What would a street style star be without a super skilled photographer behind the lens? All of her photos are amazing. They are such high quality pictures with beautiful outdoor lighting, great use of DOF, and such candid energy. 

If you haven't come across this blogger, which I highly doubt, you need to go check out what all the fuss is about. I've placed the link where I first named her blog above. 

ALRIGHT. So I've been completely MIA since like August. Pretty much since school began. It being my last semester of college and taking 17 hours, you'll have to be a little patient with me for being such an inconsistent blogger for a bit. 
Good news though, I only have one week of Blogger Sketch Sunday left! I am somewhat relieved my challenge almost complete, but a little sad as well. I appreciate all of the comments and messages I've received over the last year supporting my little endeavor. And I've had so much fun, I think I might continue for a few weeks more. We will see.

Thanks for reading!
