Works in Progress Thursday! (Oops, sorry Wednesday)

Yea yea yea I am totally not on my A-Game, Homegurl is doing "works in progress wednesday" on a thursday.

watcha gunna do?

shiz happens.

After doing some lovely logo designs for the ever so adorable Laura from Lillypie Accessories I was fortunate enough to have her recommend me to Becky from HB Photography to work with her for a logo revamp as well!

I had so much fun working with Laura that I knew working with Becky would be as equally rad <3

((still lovin' this design for Laura!))

Becky had sent over a rough sketch of how she visioned her baller-reffic logo to look.

After doing a few revisions and edits here is the final product:

Thank you Becky for letting me be a part of your logo revamp-age ;)


Just a little side note since I always feel strange not acknowledging this whenever May 3rd rolls around, but 7 years ago today I lost my friend, George, to a car accident. Before losing him the only loss I have ever really experienced was losing an elderly person due to natural causes. I never had anyone taken away from me with out "being prepared". He was only in his 20s and not a day goes by that I don't think about him. It breaks my heart more so that I barely have any pictures of him. We take for granted that we now have an 8 mega pixel camera strapped to our cell phones, but back in 2005 digital cameras were not all that common to have. Now I take pictures of everything and anything just to hold onto those memories a little bit longer.

If you want to get to know George a little bit better you can see a youtube video I made of him back in 2006 (cut me some slack guys, I was totally using "iMovie" on my mac mini back in the hay day, technology has come a loooong way since then ha!) this video is bitter sweet, I love seeing him hug me but it makes me sad that I will never see him again. Also the stupid text is all pixelated since youtube changed their resolution from when I made the video, so now its hard to read :(

RIP George Kari, you are never forgotten.


  1. Lovely designs! I am also so sorry about the loss of your friend. I too lost my best friend this month 5 years ago to a drug overdose. It's a sad time. I miss her and think of her very often.

  2. Great logo designs girl!! And I'm sorry about your friend. What a tough thing to go through, but how great are you for remembering him and thinking of him. His memory will never die because of you. You're a great friend. xo

  3. Loved working with you and LOVE my finished logo design!!! And, I forgive you for posting my ghetto drawing ;)

    Hugs to you on the loss of your friend.

  4. Hi. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I think it's great you've commemorated the day, I'm sure his friends and family are very grateful to know that he has not been forgotten.
    I've been reading your blog for aaaaaaages and I wondered whether you had any time to take a peek at my website. I'd really value any feedback you have. I'm kind of new to this blogging/shop thing, and am looking for all the guidance I can muster!
    Thanks for consistently awesome blog posts; you are an inspiration to many. x

  5. Your designs are the best. TRUTH. You have extreme talent homegirl.
