People forget an artist created the logos, the ads, the layouts of magazines... It's a subtle art. Especially the typographic side of it. As a general rule, the less you notice the font of a paragraph, the better the designer is.
If you already bought candy, you can still support the cause by having non-food treats available as well. You can also choose not to support the cause and I will love you anyway. :) No pressure.
I realize my pumpkin is more aqua than teal, but it's the only color of paint I had that was close. The thought counts, right? Anyway...

If you're thinking about allowance, I hope this helps. We'll see how it all goes down on Wednesday.
While I have had quite a few projects since March, I wanted to highlight the ones above because the client is near and dear to my heart while now based very far away.
The above posters and T-shirt mock-ups were created for the Voices for the Performing Arts Foundation (VPA) in Sherwood, Oregon. I created the Once on this Island (OOTI) poster first and painted the tree in illustrator and the sunset in photoshop. Then I thought, "Why not try to step away from the computer with the next poster?" So I painted the background with an actual brush and watercolor then scanned it in. It was nerve-racking because I didn't know if the VPA would like it. They loved it and I was so relieved and excited at the same time.
While we lived in Oregon, I joined the VPA as a designer, but also as an alto in the Sherwood Chorale, one of the many choir families in the VPA. They provided two creative outlets for me to thoroughly enjoy. I miss them very much but am so glad to be able to work with them remotely.
