The Mountains & The Sea

Well, we’ve finally done it. Seth and I have FINALLY opened our Etsy shop, The Mountains & The Sea! We are still very new to this but we’ve been wanting to do this shop thing for many years now and we actually did it. We’re proud to have our art out there and we’re truly loving the response! We took the time to set up a blog for little art collaboration on Tumblr, create a Facebook Fan Page (Like us!) and we started posting on Twitter. The Mountains & The Sea is our newest addiction and it’s a healthy one, so it’s OK!

The Last Ship Out of There

We have big plans to create, create, create! Seth is a master at fantastical illustrations and he’s really gotten back into painting everything from wall art to wearables. He has some great ideas for future shop items – so stay tuned! I have really enjoyed creating ceramic beads and pendants for the past year or so and, after many requests, I have finally gotten around to selling my jewelry! Eventually I will start listing some traditional, non-wearable pottery and various other handmade goodies. So, follow along with us and visit our shop to see what we have in store.

And then there were three!

A little over a year ago, on January 3rd, 2010, a sweet bundle of joy was brought into the world. He was a little fighter, fighting to stay in the comfort of the womb! Eventually little Eli stopped fighting it and took his first breaths as a newborn in this world. Although, at times, he wasn’t too excited about the idea (maybe it was the flash bulbs hurting his baby eyes), I had the pleasure of taking Eli’s first in-studio portraits. What a super star he is!

A week ago, today, Eli turned one. It’s hard to believe that time has moved so quickly but he has made this year so much fun for the whole Jones family! He’s a hilarious kid and I have loved watching him grow. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Eli!

Eli turns one!

Logo Review | 2010

January 1st, 2011 · 78 Comments

Logo creation is one of those things that I will always love. Learning about someone’s history and aspirations for an up-and-coming business or for an established company is fascinating to me. To take an idea and build on it, to grow it into something that will identify and brand one’s business or even the person themselves, is something I really get a thrill out of. I love helping people solve a problem through design by creating an image, a visual identity, to represent their cause. Here are a few designs that I have had the honor of working on this past year.
