I will try to update my blog as often as I can. Fair warning, I love to write, but I'm a horrible typer and my grammar skills are even worst (worse). So my apologies way in advance, Sorry! Which is actually a very common trait in most graphic designers and artists.

Recap of Events Passed: Manette Poster Calendar Unveiling/Signing Your Name Advice.

The Pip Printing 2008 poster calendar featuring my Manette Bridge print unveiling was a big success, I was able to sell some stuff and it was nice to be apart of something. I had to sign a lot of posters, being an artist you would think that I’m used to that by now, but I’m not, I’ve gotten my signature down, for the most part, but I tend to sign my name small and off to the side, as if it’s a second thought. And, the people at Pips wanted me to sign my name big, no big deal, right? Wrong, I had a time and it took me out of comfort zone. I actually had to practice it a little before I tried it on the posters. Even when I signing my own prints, I mess up so many times, that it’s just annoying. And don’t get me started on signing the “Kissing Elephants” print, it never fells for me to start off right with “KIS…” and then I go and mess it up with “HA” as if I’m writing my name, Kisha.

So, my advice to all artist out there, practice your signature a lot both small and large. And be sure to do a trial practice run before you sit and sign a lot of stuff, just so you can get into the grove of things.
A Special Request...

Please let me know, when you find spelling or other grammar errors on my blog, so I may fix them right away. Thanks. Helena
