you may already know i'm a big fan of UPPERCASE magazine and was honored to be a part of work/life 3 : the UPPERCASE directory of illustration

i'm super duper excited to announce i'll be included in the UPPERCASE surface pattern design guide.   It will be a special section in the spring 2014 issue #21.  100 artists were chosen to be in the guide out of the almost 300 artists who submitted their designs.

some of my fellow happy happy art collective gals will be in the UPPERCASE surface pattern design guide as well! check out emily, muffin, and jill!  several friends from lilla's make art that sells course are also going to be in the guide.  i can't wait to get it in my hands!

I love getting my UPPERCASE magazine in the mail.  I set aside special leisure time to absorb the great quality.  and i'm talking about quality of content, paper and design.  it's an amazing magazine and you should seriously consider subscribing if you are interested in good design, art, creativity, typography, and vintage ephemera.
