A few months ago, I opened an email from Marie at Colour Hive asking if I would allow the use one of my designs in a report she was preparing. I know Colour Hive is a trend forecasting company (they have AMAZING resources for designers) and naturally I said YES!
I just received the screen shot and I can’t even put into words how excited I am to see my sea urchin print in Volume 65 of MIX Magazine! This might not seem like a big deal to some, but to me it is huge.
As an artist, I spend an enormous amount of time in my studio creating new designs (and an inordinate amount of time reorganizing my files because my good intentions to keep those in order always fall short). To see one of those designs hit the stands in a trend-forecasting trade pub is awesome because I never even thought that it was a possibility.
So for all of you who are toiling away, wondering when something amazing is going to happen, take heart. It does.
