I knew in the New Year I wanted to create a new sample book that achieved three goals:

  • create a talking-piece that future clients will display on their desk instead of put in a drawer
  • showcase a wide variety of materials and techniques
  • create something that was fun to design and put together ... let's be real, these are time consuming to make, so I had to enjoy making them, right?
