Illustrator of the Moment

Sushi's next guest illustrator is Lindsay Holden. I told her I wanted a cartoon/steampunk sort of contraption to go on the cover of a project journal. So she drew this delightful, retro raygun! This inside of the book has graph paper, which follows the blueprint theme. Lindsay is a full-time designer and dedicated cat owner.

Illustrator of the Moment

Sushi's first guest illustrator is Candice Tate, who made this fantastic koi fish drawing! Candice has been illustrating for many years, and her Deviant Art portfolio can be viewed here. I just love her character drawings, and fell in love with these koi fish when she made a set of coasters for me as a wedding gift. Check out more pics in the Etsy shop.

According to Candice, these fishies were a serendipitous accident that occurred when she was trying to create a different concept. When she isn't gracing Sushi books with her work, Candice is doing graphic design by day and mastering martial arts by night.

More Geek Chic

I'm rolling out some new vinyl book designs this year, starting with this geek-friendly journal for creative-type people. It's got blank paper of course, so you are free to roam all over the page. Check out the Etsy shop for more pics.

Like I said, this is the first of a few, and the next books will be illustrated by some very talented people! Can't wait to show off their work. In the meantime, I finally stocked up my Etsy shop to some degree.

Book of the Moment

Sushi's back after laying low for a while. And I'm going to start off 2010 with a tribute to the 60's. This fabulously retro book would make an ideal companion to a dry martini and Lucky Strike cigarette.

In other news, except some great new vinyl books this year! Sushi will feature some guest illustrators who'll add their own delicious style to these books. More on that later!
