While my parents were visiting last week we did some sightseeing around Washington. Every time I travel in the Pacific Northwest it reaffirms how happy I am I moved here. It's so easy to go from the stunning seashore, to stunning mountains, to stunning deepdark forests in only a few days. Here are a very few snapshots of the many things we saw on the trip
Whale skeleton (Actually a monument commemorating a skeleton Lewis & Clark found)

I found this neat little book while browsing in one of my favorite book etc. stores in town, Ampersand. It's "A Dictionary of Color Combinations" and has pages and pages full of 2, 3, and 4 combinations that work well together. I don't actually know what this books is supposed to be used for, because I can't read a word of it, but I know it will be helpful for me. I'm actually not that good at putting colors together, and I always have to test a lot and end up ruing drawings with ugly colors anyway, so I'm looking forward to getting some ideas from this book. (my hand is in there to show what a satisfying pocket size it is!)

I recently finished another logo for a photographer living in the Midwest!
This client had a move vague idea about what she wanted, but liked the idea of having something botanical incorporated. She mentioned that peonies were her favorite flower so after some sketching we focused on that. She thought it was funny that she ended up wanting such a delicate flower because she said that is definitely not her personality, but I think done in a bold outline and with the leaves filled in it ended up not looking too delicate!
You can see the text in use on her website, which you should check out anyway because her photos are lovely.
