2017's Year Long #365dayproject

This year's project is challenging me to 1) do at least 30 minutes of daily drawing/vectoring and 2) create at least one sellable typeface.  

I have been sharing my wrk and process on Instagram under the handle @gstallings and you can follow for daily pieces. A long desire is to dust off my websites journal and make more meaningful entries beyond what I post elsewhere. 

Constructive criticism is welcomed. If you want to join me by becoming an accountability partner or collaborator please don't hesitate. Contact me via the About page's form. 

Right so this typeface will be western slab influenced and stackable with inner lines and shading.

Open Inventing

Just came across the company Quirky through the design blog Brand New. Quirky helps inventors realize their concepts by providing a community that can bring their skills and experience into the mix. This helps inventors focus on their strengths without feeling stretched in areas that they have little experience in. Having launched 300 products through nearly 200 retail partners is quite impressive as well.

It will be interesting to see this company grow and innovate the product design and retail industries.

Stateside Visit Coming Soon!

It's official! The three Stallings will be stateside for 3 months starting in July! Don't worry, we won't be kicking back that long but staying quite busy. We have been in Shanghai, China for nine years and in need of a "furlough" with grandparents and family. Here are the dates...

Colorado: July 9th - August 26th
North Carolina and East Coast: August 26th - October 15th

I will be staying busy with continued freelance work, an art showing, and a brand release but interested in any commission work. Let me know and I can see what is available! Stay tuned for more news of those events!
