Life Lessons - Be Good

I'm back today with another life lesson. The last couple weeks have been quiet for me and I had to put down my sketchbook and pencil. Working all day and drawing all night has been putting tremendous strain on my wrist and I've been dealing with some carpal tunnel issues. So to rest and heal I have been limiting the time I spend sketching. This has not been easy and there has been more than a time or two where the husband has walked into the room to catch me drawing. And with that fact I think this is the perfect life lesson for everyone (myself included) today.

Day nine of the Life Lessons hand lettering group project: Be good - most of the time. I believe in being good. I am a rule follower by nature. I don't like to make waves. I think that you should obey the traffic laws and in general just be a good person. I also think there is a time and place to break the rules. I'm not talking about major laws here. I'm talking about the rules we as a society, and as individuals, put in place. The ones about how you shouldn't tell someone you don't like their new hair cut when they ask or keeping quiet just for the sake of politeness. Sometimes you have to speak up. And sometimes you just have to drink coffee at 1am. You know it's not a good idea at the time, but it doesn't matter. The fun you have doing it outweighs the consequences. The risks you take in life are often the things you remember the best.

Recently I submitted a design for a Minted.com designer challenge and I'd like to invite everyone to visit Minted and vote. If you aren't familiar with Minted, it is an online community of designers that create and submit designs for Minted to sell online to shoppers looking for a unique, professionally designed piece created by real designers. Its a great place for people like me to collaborate and connect with other designers and create unique pieces that have the chance to be seen and purchased by millions of people everyday.

This design was inspired one day by dreaming about adventure.  Adventure inspires growth and growth lets you really spread your wings and fly. I love the texture and earth tones mixed with the playful hand drawn lettering.
