Hill's Pets - Standing Out is in the Bag

The setting: a crowded veterinary conference. A sea of animal lovers all gathering pamphlets and brochures and business cards. Ooh-ing and aah-ing over the latest in pet care as they bump elbows with their furry-friend-loving peers.

Penelope Dullaghan's Designer Teacup for Crate&Barrel

Penelope Dullaghan is passionate about maintaining balance and harmony in both her life and her art. So what a perfect illustrative designer for Create&Barrel's 2014 artist signature teacup series.

Working primarily in acrylic, ink and digital design, the Indianapolis-based artist explores fluid, simple shapes rendered in an energetic palette. Her interpretation of the Bennett teacup was inspired by her newfound hobby of gardening. To Dullaghan, the garden is a place of quiet and peace. "It provides the perfect opportunity to slow down and observe."

Thank you Crate&Barrel for providing the perfect gift for Mother's Day! ............................................................................................................................................................................

“Where do ideas come from?”

A brilliant idea can change your life. Just ask Steve Jobs. And think about it – how would one incredible idea affect your work? How would it affect your personal creating? Your career? Your confidence and opportunities?
