*A quick interlude from all of us at Colorbök: We are extremely busy here in Dexter as we are moving our corporate offices over the next two weeks. We apologize in advance for any neglect of the blog or responses to questions. Please peruse our archives and prepare for an amazing 2010. Watch for an extensive amount of new product to hit the shelves in the next month!!
And now, for the designer of the month - Maria!
Most of my life revolves around trying new recipes, designing/ illustrating, or drinking gallons of coffee. I am always freezing cold, even in the summer. I am slightly….really obsessed with someday owning a pug or boston terrier.
I am inspired by so many artists, but some of my all-time
favorite illustrators working in the field today are Jillian Tamaki, Marcos
Chin, and Sterling Hundley. I also have an obsession with art and fashion from
the 1960s- Mary Blair’s work is one of my biggest inspirations from that time.
-Coffee. With a capital C.
-the internet (I can look at art and design blogs all day long!)
-my cat Zoey (although she is a devil child, she’s my baby!)
