“I’ve been loving Wednesday. She’s a gothic and autistic icon. If her style takes off in the real world, it will be the best thing that ever happened to Hot Topic. You wouldn’t hear me complain.”
“Hudson’s Kickstarter is still going strong! Twenty three days to go. Due to inquiries from outside the U.S we are now shipping to ten countries including: • United States • United Kingdom • Sweden • Netherlands • Canada • Australia • Germany • Japan • France • Singapore

“I did the illustrations for this.”

“Poppies inspired by my trip to Provence a few years ago. I’ve always heard of how amazing the lavender fields in Provence are but the poppy fields were an unexpected surprise. I always do little sketches to remember my trips by and I really love it when I can incorporate them into my work.”

“60 Years of Spider-man.”
“FanX has been a blast this year.
Chris Hoffman (left) and (me Andrew) – the Spider-fans at the 60 Years of Spider-man panel.”
“Here are pics from a couple of comic creator encounters we had a FanX 2022. Bob Hall (Spider-Man, Batman, Emperor Doom) had some wonderful industry stories he was kind enough to share.”
“We also met comic book royalty, Wendy and Richard Pini (Elfquest), who were some of the first comic creators to visit a Utah convention way back in the CONduit days. They couldn’t have been nicer!”
“Drawing I did for a work thing, but it turns out it was’t right for the work thing.”
“Really happy how this cover art turned out. Yes, I designed it. Yes, that’s my old van on fire. Yes, the song is available in all streaming services. Yes, it’s called Night Drive by The Fever Drift. Yes, I’m in that band. Yes, we’re playing our first show this Sunday at Quarters in SLC. Any further questions?”
“‘If You Can Only Do One Thing, Hone It To Perfection. Hone It To The Utmost Limit!'”
“I made this for work, and I love it! Incidentally, that seat cover was bright red originally. I’m very proud that I had the skill to change it to another color we offer in the same material. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!”
“I’m counting down the days to being able to being able to work out in my garden.”
“The Son de Flor Spring/Summer collection released today and it is just beautiful. My Garden Floral print is featured on a few different styles of dresses and a shawl. A link to the collection is in the comments if you’d like to see the entire collection.”
“Honey the corgi is ready for spring in my The Foggy Dog daffodil print.”
“A date with THE STARS.”
“I have been thinking about the first day of spring today and what it represents. New growth, new beginnings, starting fresh and moving forward.“
“Flowers don’t automatically pop out of the ground. They have to go from their seeds/bulbs, struggle to push through layers and layers of dirt making sure they are getting the nutrients they need from the soil and moisture in the ground around them. Even when they reach the surface, there is still growing to be done before the flowers can bloom with their bright, vibrant colors.“
“If you feel you are in the midst of what seems to be endless, perpetual struggles in any or all areas of life, take courage. As this new season of the year begins, I hope you can remember that even flowers take time to bloom. There may be struggles to get there, but the end result is always worth it. So keep working. Keep going. Even if it is just one inch at a time. This season of struggle will pass and will lead you to some beautiful things in life.”
“Disconnect from the constantly moving, ever busy world around you to reconnect with who you really are.”
“It’s okay to take a step back when you are feeling overwhelmed with everything going on around you. We are constantly bombarded with podcasts, music, streaming services, social media, ads, games… We are not robots and need time to rest and recharge.”
“Closing off outside sources of constant noise and taking time to sit, be still and listen to the thoughts that move through my head has been a huge help in starting to reconnect with who I am. I still have a way to go but finding time to be still has been very beneficial. How do you disconnect from the world to reconnect with yourself?”
“Here is one of the projects I worked on at the real estate business I worked for. They were trying to get investors to invest in the two buildings marked in red. The POV is looking west onto downtown Salt Lake City. The story is that the four blocks east of State Street and south of 100 South are growing and what we think of as “hot downtown property” will soon include those four blocks.
So in order to help illustrate it, I wanted to show the skyline, with all the big existing buildings in the background and the blocks we’re focusing on in the foreground.
The top is what it looked like 5 years ago, the middle is what it looks like now (the green buildings are new) and the bottom is what it will look like in 5 years (the yellow buildings are planned).”
“Katrina here! Fresh in our online store today. I’ve been getting back into stamp carving and block printing. I recently just taught a class for the Tooele County Arts Guild on stamp carving and it was a blast. Each print turns out slightly different depending on how the ink transfers to the paper so each piece is unique! Each print comes with its print date and artist signature.

Arts Council Park City & Summit County:
“A local, artist, skier, and foodie, Blake Peterson takes us on our latest insider’s insights into Summit County.
Peterson grew up in Park City and developed a love for steep skiing and fine art.
From skiing in the World Cup at age 17 to studying art administration and photography at Westminster and California College of the Arts, Peterson blends her passions into projects that involve digital media, advertising and branding.”
“Here’s another picture I had taken without the use of Photoshop.”
“Felt like making something For Springtime. I think it turned out pretty well.”
“Haven’t painted in a long time. I don’t know why I go long stretches without painting. Decided it’s time. Took 2 days trying to get her shadowing to a place I liked.”
“The All-Seeing Weight”
“Friends & family, It’s been a long time coming, but @drinkbutter recently launched its first solo collection and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The ‘Butter Ball’, ‘Butter Dog’, ‘Dog with the Butter’, and ‘ButterTini’ Anorak jackets were created by yours truly and are available atdrink-butter.com.
What started as a platform to post our films, edits, and IG cuts, quickly evolved into a place where skiers from all over the state, nation, and world have gradually come together over one shared interest — butter. Some of these skiers I’ve looked up to for years, some have just recently started to inspire me, and there will be plenty more down the line.
The whole point behind the butter is to spread love within the free-skiing community.
Specifically, to build up underdog skiers, crews, and brands that are beneficial for the culture, while also paying respect to those who paved the way for our sport. With the revenue from these designs, I plan to support other phenomenal people and projects within our community.
While it is always a great feeling to stomp a backflip, it’s even more special to encourage a friend to do their first. Here is to paying it forward and building up the next generation of skiers.
“I’m trying to figure out what to do with the #BlackLivesMatter pins. I want to support the cause.”
“2020 Day 164:No”
“Finally a space for this piece. A lot of us are being lured in by false monsters.”
Ruben De La Torre
“Just added the mask to my normal profile pic which was originally part of a bigger piece I did a while ago.This is the piece. It’s one of my favorites.”
“Always forward.” #blacklivesmatter
“I drew these salmon and lamprey characters for the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission yeeears ago. I’m so proud to see that the little guys are still serving their community and being responsible with their mask wearing during the pandemic.”
“Some of the layouts I did for SLUG.”
“Jeff Bezos doesn’t need your money. Support local! (Art by your favorite neighborhood Jenny!)”
“Today’s a good day, my friends at Baby and Buddy Animal Rescue just released their new logo I designed for them! B&B does such a wonderful job providing care, compassion, and constant care for their animals – I’m so happy that I was able to help them find a logo that reflected these things.
Just for fun, I also designed some t-shirts, totes, and hats to show off their new look. Follow them on FB and Instagram for some quality pupperoni content!”
“A pattern that mixes icons my team and I made for the collection. It’s like a trippy rainbow ‘I Spy.'”🌈⚡️🚀🦖📓🌎✨🦕📚
“There are only 2 kinds of people in this world… People who say they love ABBA… And liars.” ⭐️💫
“Not every design makes it into a paper collection. This clever girl didn’t make the cut, but I decided to keep her around anyway.🤷🏻♀️
Tomorrow begins my first full week back in the office after quarantine. It’s done a lot for me emotionally and psychologically to be back in my work environment. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a total homebody… Just not a work-from-homebody.🙅🏻♀️Things may change once again (please no), but until then I’m happy with this little slice of ‘normal.‘”😷🤲🏻🧼
Saturday, December 7, 2019 SLCC Center for Arts & Media
This semester’s ART 2220 Advanced Design class held a successful presentation showing branding work created over the course of the fall semester. Alumni acted as reviewers in a “speed review” of ten minutes for students. Each student received five or six reviews. After the reviews, alumni showed their own work.
Fictional companies included Cerberus Motorcycles, Garden Avenue (florist), Humm (recording studio), and Moonlight Magick (new age store).
Helen Cox designed this flyer: “My grrrlfriends and I are bringing folks together in the name of Krampus and helping SLC’s homeless.”
“I meant to share this a while ago but I guess I never did! A few months ago I was able to create this movie poster for Rickey Jewkes’ musical short film Meanwhile in New York. It was submitted to the Utah Film Festival earlier this year. Such an honor to create poster for this film!”
“Always a joy to create something for Ballet Center Utah, Inc!”
“I just have to share this awesome bag that I was so lucky to get to design for my company’s event. I love the pops of color and pattern. It was so fun to do because it’s the kind of design that appeals to me personally.”
“Here’s the digital painting and initial sketch for the Matt card. On the iPad is one of my favorite illustrations I made this year, which was inspired by the work of Modigliani. The artwork on these cards was all done on the iPad using the Procreate app. I added the “Happy Holidays” and nameplate afterwards using Adobe Illustrator.”
“Happy holidays y’all! I hope you all have a great (whatever you’re into this time of the year)!”
“This is my second layout for SLUG magazine. Pick up the December issue now! “
“Don’t know how I feel about it, but it was fun to do and good practice since I haven’t touched some cans in a while.”
“Just another flowery pattern for a project I’ve been working on.”🙃
Katrina & Hudson Flores
“Hudson and I currently have a few pieces of our work hanging at the Tooele Library with the Tooele County Arts Guild and many other great artists. I took first place for my oil painting “Ethereal” and Hudson took second place for his Beautiful digital painting “Tavern of Lore”. He also entered another digital painting of the legend of Zelda. We love our art community! Go check out the art at the library, it’s up till the end of October!”
“We’re at DownEast in Millcreek this weekend!”💖
“Sharing this brochure design I did a little while ago for a client wanting to advertise the Construction Loan Department of RanLife Home Loans. I had the opportunity to do some custom icons too😁 Thanks James!”
“Yesterday, I desperately needed a leave behind for an interview the next day, so in 3 hours I made a couple dotted grid sketch books using bright neon poster board, my printer and a couple staples. I’m pretty happy with how my ‘bright idea’ turned out and they liked it too.”
“Sharing some more designs, this was a proposal for a studio fan look to match some of the new aesthetics of studio or set lighting for those with more flexible environments that don’t want a ceiling fan.”
“Well hello there! Just wanted to show everyone something that I’ve been working on since January and I excited that it’s finally done! It’s my first time sculpting something so big out of polymer clay so there was definitely a learning curve. What do you think?”
