Summer is here in full force in Los Angeles (I know this because my 1920s apartment doesn’t have central air!). I just got back from an extended vacation on the East Coast which was preceded by an intense month-long sprint at work where I delivered a pretty complicated build-a-box feature for one of our clients (you can check it out here, I’m very proud of it).
Following Nate Kadlac’s advice on including illustrations to spruce up my newsletters, I’ve included (below) a recent drawing I did of Pier 3 in Philadelphia (one of the stops on my trip). This ended up taking me more time than I would have liked, and I realized that doing “landscapes” is a slippery slope because I can fall into the trap of trying to include too much detail. But I’m pretty happy with how it turned out regardless.
