fair wages

Jessica Hische posted a great blog about fair pricing for freelance projects (especially illustration, lettering and logos) that will be good to come back to from time to time. It is so hard to get information about how people price their work in the creative realm and there is so much downward pressure on prices in the field that it is always helpful to hear how successful designers are pricing their work.

julia rothman

Came across this grain edit interview w/ Julia Rothman the other day. I love Julia's style and patterns!
She also just recently co-authored The Exquisite Book, a new take based off of the exquisite corpse game. 

There's also a link to a pattern making tutorial that was on Design*Sponge. Give it a try!
Check out the interview!

si scott

Tonight I went to UCLA campus to hear Si Scott talk about his hand-drawn type and distinctive design style. For two plus hours we were treated to his back story and descriptions of his process and works. Amazing! Go to his website and get lost in the incredible curvaceous details. Handmade flourishes at their finest.
