WIP Wednesday

WOO-HOO my first NPO logo was published!


I have always enjoyed drawing with my good ol' #2. I am generally a copy artist, excelling at cartoon copies, but also can draw hands, feet and animals. Pul-lease, don't ask for a face!

Working as chief, cook, and bottlewasher for a Community Television has it's ups and downs. I was trying to have the Lonnie Anderson Receptionist job but I guess *ahem* I just wasn't blonde enough. My job encompasses all the accounting, payroll, and HR...reservation scheduling, marketing, cup washing, coffee making, carpet shampoo ordering...it's crazy, but I keep it afloat generally speaking.

Rather by accident I ended up designing the logo for a bay area food/soup pantry. I gave my scribbles to a producer and she digitized it and it was accepted in it's rawest form. That's what they wanted, simple and line drawn. Who woulda thunk. The top part is a section of the brochure, the bottom piece is one side of the fundraiser envelope.

I show this as my WIP today, work is my life, I love my job. My DH is included here at the station, where I go so does he(when he isn't doing his own job, 1/2 mile away)! He is floor director for one program, and has done a bit of narration. I'm scheduled to do camera work on something in December, should be fun. I think that composing your camera shot is definately an art-form! I rarely have the time to get into the studio, but the secret is out...I want to do it all!

Hi! I'm glad you love your job. I love mine too but it is hard for specialty retail shops to make it in small towns (quilt shop) so I am constantly afraid it may not last 'forever'. Anyway, thank you for commenting on my blog--and yes, it gets hectic juggling all the time!

Thanks for your nice comment on the Japanese lanterns- Just the lanterns are from Carol Doak's Foundation Factory I -Then put a 3 inch border around them and squared them up at an angle so they look like they're swaying in the breeze-I thought it would be nice to have ribbons floating too. They are just tacked down here and there with a french knot. Glad you like it.

I forgot the most important part-if you want me to print you out some copies-tell me what size and your address in an e-mail which you can find on my profile...lord these word verifications get longer every day don't they??

Great job on the logo! It is wonderful to love your job, after all we spend so much time doing them! I love my job too, but I don't think it is nearly as exciting as yours. Jen

I think it was Mark Twain who said "Lucky is the man who loves his job for he will never have to work for a living." Or words to that effect.
