Something about sitting at a bar eight days a week resonates with me, deeply (can someone pass me the whiskey, already?). Oh, and we call ourselves “enthusiasts” now, for the record. 😉 🥃

While I talk a lot about design and branding and knowing yourself and finding your story, I’m still working on doing all of that for myself as well. I’ve learned that it’s a practice, rather than a destination. Our businesses and our individual selves are always evolving, right?

Take some time regularly to check in with yourself or your brand. What still serves you? What have you grown out of? What have you grown into? What steps can you take to best address the phase you’re currently in?

Tell me about what season you or your business are currently in right now. Rest? Growth? Exploration? Hibernation?

One of my favorite activities to do with a client (I’ve done this for myself a few times as well), is to make a ‘This But Not That’ list. 
Here’s how you do it: take a sheet of paper, draw a line down the middle, on the left, write “I am/My business is:” and on the right, “I am not/My business is not:”. Spoiler: you’d be surprised how easy it is to fill up your “I am not” column.

It sounds simple, but it’s incredibly insightful for you and your brand. It helps you to define who you are and equally as important: who you are not. 
When you have a clear picture of who you are, you’re able to make decisions easier, brand yourself more thoughtfully, eliminate the areas of yourself or your brand that don’t align with your ‘why’, and my favorite: articulate your brand and purpose to others. 
Here’s some examples I’ve seen in the past: “I am community-driven but not cliquish.” “I am proud but not egotistical.” “I am assertive but not forceful.” “I am tough but not unfeeling.” “I am whimsical but not frivolous.” Easy, right?

I want to know some of your This But Not That’s below 👇

“People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.” Words of wisdom by one of my favorites, Simon Sinek (@simonsinek ). I keep this quote permanently affixed in my brain to guide me through every action I take. 
The hard truth: there are likely thousands of brands out there doing exactly what you do. The upside: there is only one you. Only one person that has been through your life’s experiences: your successes, failures, travels, loves, heartbreaks, jobs, and so on. The accumulated experiences of your life has brought you here today with a distinct ‘why’ for all the things you do. 
So what is your why? Why do you get out of bed in the morning? Why do you spend the majority of your day at the job that you’re at? Or here’s one: what is it that keeps you from looking back? Why are you propelled forward? (Hint: “money” isn’t the answer.)

Give me wine or give me death ☠️ The last installation of @elcorazonwinery is out and giving me chills. You wanna know what I’ve NEVER done before and sounds terrifying but I absolutely jumped on when asked? Illustrating a full body skeleton. I’ll be honest, I was incredibly intimidated going into such a detailed and exact design and SO pleased with how it turned out. •

The @elcorazonwinery roll out continues! I love the intersection of macabre and whimsy that sugar skulls embody (is that ironic?). The tricky thing is creating something as widely used as a sugar skull that not only personifies the essence of the brand, but is original and unique. •

What do you do as a grown adult when your FAVORITE BAND returns and none of your old merch fits (or it's all torn up and not wearable) ?! You make merch out of scrap vinyl with your #cricutmaker and blast their logo on every piece of blank clothing you own. #sorrynotsorry

You can use graphic recording to impress your future clients!

I was brought along as a partner on a sales pitch to illustrate the strengths that my partner would bring to their potential client. Audience members told me they were engaged in the drawing process, trying to guess what I might draw next. When have you ever heard a similar reaction to a slide presentation?? This was a very quick presentation, about 20 minutes, but it was engaging. The drawing was given to the client in both large scale and digital form, to remind them of the presentation they heard. This stretches that 20 minutes of face time into many more moments where you are brought to the mind of your future client.

Spent the past 2 days making this animated illustration in @procreate - I’m taking @makeartthatsells Editorial Illustration class with @lillarogers and I love all the animated illustrations from previous classes. Decided to try it myself and it was quite fun! I love how alive it makes the image look. 🥰🥰🥰

Finished up this set of fingerless gloves that I've been procrastinating on. I'm in love with this stitch.

So, we did a paint party at home with the parents and we went off of one of @theartsherpa YouTube videos. I deviated from the prompt... just a little... or a lot. But anyways, here's my spooky, three eyed, possibly demonic, tree Furby.
