Support is important, and it works both ways … miniatures, graphic design, web design etc

Once again my planned blogging schedule is overtaken by events happening around me.

Someone Danny and I met quite by chance in Second Life last year (cis-female) has become a very close friend of ours and has been very supportive of both of us, especially with regard to our individual positions pertaining to gender.

She also happens to be a very talented miniaturist, web designer, graphic designer, etc. and having seen her at work in “artistic mode” I can vouch for her attention to detail and dogged determination to get things “just right” … “Almost right” is never enough for her as she is constantly checking visual angles, scale and textures.

Her work is in private collections and museums and has been featured in numerous magazines and the New York Times. She’s a member of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans (IGMA), Artisans in Miniature (AIM), and the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts (NAME).

I know from experience that when one works for oneself there can be peaks and troughs in the workflow, and unfortunately this past summer has been a particularly lean time on the commissions front for her.

So now is the time for me to show solidarity and in some small way to offer her support by the only practical means I have, by publicising her beautiful work in the hope that it might bring some benefit to her.

One of her miniatures would make a wonderful and unique Christmas or Birthday present for someone dear to you, or maybe you run or know of a business or organisation that needs some graphic design work doing? … or a website? Grace could be just the person you’re looking for!

Here are the links to her sites. Go look, and I hope you find some inspiration.

Graphic Design: oddspoon.com (and I love the way this site functions as you scroll down!)

Tasters of some miniatures …

Mother's Day: Kitchen ... Every year the kids send Mother some Georgia peaches in these iconic green Brand Name boxes, and she uses the box to send them back tomatoes from her garden. (Just too cute!)

    • Oh Lordy … back to stumbling through the maze which is the new settings structure to try to find that ….
