Owl

Posted in Art on June 29, 2009 by Kris

My friend Amber moved back to the Twin Cities from Los Angeles a couple of months ago, and she moved into a cute little apartment that she’s been slowly furnishing and decorating. She loves owls, so I thought I’d draw an owl in warm tones and frame it so she had something to hang up on her walls. It was a birthday gift, and she seemed to really love it. I bought a frame from a thrift store that was sort of gold and tastefully gaudy (yes, I realize that doesn’t make sense) and it worked really well.

She said, “He’s so…hooty!” Yes. Yes he is.

I finished the postcard and poster designs for Red Letter Theater‘s production of “Phaedra’s Love.”

I’m quite happy with how these turned out. It was fun to play with grunge brushes a little.

As you can see from the previous post, I created album artwork for Missing Star’s album, “Life Moving Backwards.”

I’m currently finishing up the postcard for Red Letter Theater‘s production of Phaedra’s Love. The front design is complete, and this week I’m beginning work on the back design. I’ll be posting the front design soon.

There have been big changes happening over at the Franz Ferdinand Fan Club. Mark had to step down from running the fan club, and those over at FF HQ have been working on deciding the best approach for continuing the fan club. They asked me to be the head of the U.S. division of the fan club, and the creation of the next issue is in my hands. It’s a big responsibility and also a huge honour, and I’m up to the challenge. I saw the band in Minneapolis and Chicago, and I was able to speak with them to get some ideas for this issue and future issues. I’ve got a notebook full of ideas, and I’m excited to see how it turns out. I’m not quite sure when the issue will  be released, but I will keep everyone posted.

Missing Star “Life Moving Backwards”

Posted in Graphic Design, Music on June 2, 2009 by Kris

I just finished up designing an album cover for Missing Star, and I’m happy with the results.

John Moore had very kind words to say about me:

“I have dealt with many designers throughout my years of performing music and Kris and her work rose above all of them. Her professionalism and patience are fantastic. You won’t find better artwork for your musical project at such an affordable price.”

Warm fuzzies!
