What happens when a calligrapher moves... I know I've been pretty absent lately. The reason I haven't been posting is because I bought a house! 🏠😄 Stay tuned for lots of wall calligraphy and DIY projects if that's your thing!

A special thanks to Gary R. Jacob for sharing his original Gipps Brewing artwork with us! These are very cool!
“If justification is by the law in any way, Christ’s death is meaningless in history and meaningless to you personally. Imagine that your house were burning down but your whole family had escaped, and I said to you: Let me show you how much I love you! and ran into the house and died. What a tragic and pointless waste of a life, you would probably think. But now imagine that your house was on fire and one of your children was still in there, and I said to you: Let me show you how much I love you!, ran into the flames, and saved your child but perished myself. You would think: Look at how much that man loved us. If we could save ourselves, Christ’s death is pointless, and means nothing. If we realize we cannot save ourselves, Christ’s death will mean everything to us. And we will spend the life that He has given us in joyful service of Him, bringing our whole lives into line with the gospel.” - Tim Keller on Galatians 2:21

So you may have noticed I haven’t been posting anything lately. I’ve just started a new job at the University of Illinois in Champaign and I’ve been very busy with packing, moving, getting up to speed at work, and figuring out public transportation. Everything is starting to calm down a little and I look forward to getting back into some more illustration soon! Until then, please enjoy this picture of the art slowly making its way back into my workspace. More to come as I unbox it!

We got free plants at work last month for Earth day and I was skeptical about growing this Red Oak indoors, nothing had changed for the past month. Today I see a difference 🙊 It's alive!!! .

Combing through my pictures, I found this one that I took on July 14, 2015. Ha, it’s France’s Bastille Day and 🇫🇷 Flag Day by the same token. Great coincidence #flag #usflag #sunset #peoria #peoriaillinois #hellopeoria #enjoypeoria #enjoyillinois #clouds #skyline #coincidence
These last few years I have struggled to create my own business when I'm so busy building everyone else's. Not only that, but also it can be a temptation to design how everyone else is designing and not trust my own instincts or beliefs. The struggle is real, folks. What about the rest of you small biz friends out there: what are your business aches and pains?

One of my clients, a custom musical instrument case designer, sent me this thoughtful present after I completed her logo.  Even though we’ve never met in person, she picked the most perfect fabric to create this custom pencil holder. I absolutely love it and the appreciation this shows for my work with her. Work with people you like, I promise you it makes ALL the difference!

Tonight, a little bit of our history came home. Thank you to Pat Lewis who donated Mayor Woodruff’s gavel to the city. Engraved with Mayor Woodruff’s name and displayed in its original box and strike plate, we are honored to display this treasure of Peoria’s past in our beautifully historic council chambers. #thankyou #history #peoriahistory #appreciatepeoria #hellopeoria #mayorwoodruff #mayor #citycouncil #bestcityhallever #mayor #localgov #gavel #peoriail #peoriaillinois

If it’s a Council night, then we get to celebrate Proclamations! Tonight we honored National Gun Violence Awareness Day (top photo). Accepting were members from the Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, a non-partisan, grassroots movement fighting for public safety measures that respect the Second Amendment and protect people from gun violence. We also acknowledged 65 “tentsational” years of Corn Stock Theater! #proclamation #citycouncil #bestcityhallever #councilmeeting #councilchambers #govlove #localgovlove #peoriail #peoriaillinois #hellopeoria #appreciatepeoria
