ALUMNI FOCUS – Davin, Helen, Cassidy, Amber, Esther, Matt, Katrina, Dianna, Jenna, Lauren & Clayton

Davin Abegg

“4 recent drawings I’ve done that look pretty cool together.”


Helen Cox

“It has been an honor to spend the last week reflecting on some of my black heroes and sharing their messages and faces. Due to Covid and caring for my family, I cannot risk going to protests. However, it was not an option for me to not contribute to this movement in some way, so I decided to do what I do: create.

I hope these have given some meaning to someone out there. I am considering making some prints and donating the profits to the Black Lives Matter Global Network. If anyone is interested in something like that, please let me know. If not, feel free to save these digital copies. I also have PDF files for anyone who would prefer to print at home: bit.ly/helenalux-black-heroes. Much love to everyone right now during this crazy but important time in human history.”


Cassidy Demkov

“I’ve always said that my dream was to design dog stuff in an office full of dogs. Goal accomplished. 🖤🐶 If your pup is in need of a really cute bandana head over to Foggy Dog and check out my floral bandanas.”

🍋 🍋 🍋 “Definitely one of my favorite flavors and scents. Always fresh and delicious. Fact: my business cards smell like lemons because I accidentally spilled lemon oil on my desk and they absorbed the oil. Didn’t even realize it until someone asked me if I purposely scented them.” 🤷🏻‍♀️😂


Amber Giles

“The latest lettering doodle.” 🚙🍍🤜🏼🤛🏾


Esther Longmore

“Just trying to loosen up a bit.”

“I’m here to bring you something more than doom and gloom in your feed! Here are some of the products I designed that were released in Stampin Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog today.”


Matt Page

“My buddy Thomas interviewed next about the book for Rational Faiths. You can read more about the book and see artwork hitherto unseen.”


Katrina Flores Parkinson

“I needed to take a small break from painting this week. While looking through some old photos, I found this picture of Hudson and I in the Japanese Tea Gardens in San Francisco a couple years back. It’s been a cherished memory. We had such happy expressions on our faces I chose to recreate the picture in my sketchbook with some of my Art Nouveau touches.”


Dianna Totland

“I need another subject. 😂 at least I’m consistent with what I paint.”


Jenna Warby

“These beautiful babies are about to find their new homes! The JWD Shop Rag is my custom printed & designed thank you for clients and employers – I love how they turned out. Feels good to be making career moves.”


Lauren Waters

“June marks my third anniversary at @americancrafts . I haven’t used this space much to curate my 9-5 work, but I think I’d like to change that…

Let’s kick things off with some dinos, shall we? A couple weeks ago I finished reading Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Then over the weekend a friend rented out a theater to have a viewing of the original JP film. Seeing it larger than life was something else… 🤩 So I’m commemorating the occasion by sharing some of the dinosaurs I contributed to a @shimelle paper collection called Field Trip. They all look pretty friendly – just don’t get too close.” 🦕🏝🌋🦖
