CATS + PRINTS = YAY!

For a while, I have been pinning creative workspaces I love on Pinterest. These are a few of my favorites. Looking at other designer and artist’s workspaces is very inspiring. They are so full of colours and personality.
I should have posted this months ago.
I submitted an illustration piece for USFOLK, Canberra’s Independent Arts and Culture Magazine. It was for an article called “The Quarter Life Crisis” by Erin Priestly.
A little story with no connection to my illustration piece (story time!): It was actually pretty funny when I read the article that I got. I’m 26 years old, settling down in a new city that is totally different from the last 3 cities I have lived in my life. I’m newly married, which is the best decision I’ve ever made, so there’s no problem there. But for a while I actually have been worrying about other aspects in life. Such as… my career, whether or not I’m (emotionally) ever going to be ready to have a child, will my life gets more comfortable (financially) as I get older… blah blah blah.
Then, BAM! I received that article. I have never heard a thing called “The Quarter Life Crisis” until I read that article. So now I know that I’m not the only one. Which is kinda great. So all I have to do now is to hold on, keep on doing what I love doing which is designing, try as hard as I can and let nature takes its course. Then hopefully, my quarter life crisis will be over before I know it.
Okay, Enough story time, kids.
So yeah… about the illustration, as you can see it began with a sketch, I scanned it and turn it into vector graphic illustration, submit it to USFOLK Magazine and it was published in their 4th Issue (Autumn 2013). For a copy of USFOLK, you can purchase it here. It’s a really cool magazine, guys. You should get a copy.
To the USFOLK team, if you’re reading, thank you again for the great opportunity!
I have been blogging less and less, I know. Doesn’t mean I’m abandoning Design is Yay. Don’t worry, I’m not going to. Blogging, ever since I started doing it regularly, has become my hobby. I don’t give my hobby that soon, especially when it’s been great. I get to share things that inspires me, I connected with new people and the best thing of all is getting my work as a designer recognised.
However sometimes, I still find it difficult to divide my time between blogging and my design work. I’m currently working on 4 client projects on top of my own (Mad Cat Studio and re-designing my portfolio website).
So to still keep my blog updated while I’m busy doing work, I’m going to start sharing Studio Updates. I will be updating on what I’m currently doing in my little one-woman-studio, Wita Puspita Design.
What’s new today, is my re-designed portfolio website, which I’m really proud of.
I designed the website on my own, with the help of a developer friend.
Check the website out, and tell me what you think :)
