Dry-Ink: Smart Texturing In Photoshop (and Giveaway)

September 23, 2015

As I'm sure most of you know, Jake teaches on Skillshare. And guess what?! Now I do too! It took some (ok a lot) of convincing/encouragement from Jake, but I finally gave in and did it. I couldn't be more excited with how the class turned out. To celebrate, I'm even doing a rubber stamp contest for those who complete the class project by October 31st, 2015. So go check out my class on Skillshare and let's have some fun!

Happy Fourth!

July 4, 2015

Wishing everyone a happy Fourth of July filled with all things America!

P.S. I took Jake's Hand Lettering in Motion class on Skillshare yesterday and had lots of fun learning to animate my lettering! Seriously fellow letterers you should give this a try. I've never animated before and now I'm addicted.

Etsy Wholesale

June 1, 2015

Today I officially published our linesheet on Etsy Wholesale. We have a few wholesalers outside of Etsy, but this feels like we just took the next big step in our paper goods adventure. We are excited for this opportunity and what all it holds for our little growing family. Like I said a few posts back, 2015 is turning out to be the best and most exciting year yet for us Bartletts. To much is happening and changing for us. I can't wait to see what the next 6 months holds.

Coming This October

Sheesh! It's been forever since I posted on here. Ever since the new year rolled around things have really been changing in the Bartlett household, lots and lots of changes. That's a post for another day (I'll try to write it sooner than later, but I probably shouldn't promise anything). Anyway, 2015 is turning out to be our best year ever and here is why...

The Beginner's Guide To Animating Custom GIFs (And Giveaway!)

February 5, 2015

Alright all you graphic designers out there! Jake released another class on Skillshare called The Beginner's Guide to Animating Custom Gifs. I know nothing about After Effects/Animating so I got to be the guinea pig in this class to make sure it was truly a beginner's course. And I have to say it was a super fun class to take! It's perfect for graphic designers who want to have fun and add a little motion to their designs. Best of all it's free for a limited time AND Jake is running a contest now until February 13 where if you finish a Valentine's Day themed GIF you are entered to win an annual premium membership to Skillshare! I know all of you would own this class so I would love to see you guys rock out some sweet designs! Sign up for free for a limited time here: http://skl.sh/customGIFs
