If you have been around here for any length of time, you will know that I learned graphic design about 1.5 years ago. It has been an amazing process learning how to create art with a mouse and a free computer program, Inkscape.
I feel like I have come full circle in the last year. I started out learning how to draw with the computer because I could never get my “in real life” drawings to look like how I wanted them too. This is why, until now, I have always painted abstract paintings. Now, I have come back to real life drawing (and painting) and I am able to look at my work differently and somehow make it work. My real life art is still more cartoony and fun than realistic (much like my graphic design), but I’m okay with that.
I have tried a variety of different things with my graphic design. I tried having a graphic design site with it’s own domain (Sunflower Graphic Design), I tried merging it with my other site (Marketplace Mommies), and I even considered using my new Sweet B Studio, but I have decided that I don’t really want to be running all over the place managing blogs.
Don’t get me wrong, I have tons of fun doing the blogging part of Sunflower Schoolhouse, but I want to spend my time creating. I want to create graphic design, I want to create homeschool products (free and paid), I want to help my husband create our animations (more on that in the coming weeks), and I have so many other ideas for projects that there just are not enough hours in the day, so I am bringing everything back to Sunflower Schoolhouse. Be prepared to see all kinds of new and exciting things here at Sunflower Schoolhouse.
You may have already noticed that I recently incorporated my Graphic Design into Sunflower Schoolhouse and I will be highlighting some of my designs into my posts. One of those designs is coming up in the next post.
