People You May Meet

People You May Meet-1-Design Crush


When I first saw the work of People You May Meet – aka Tracie Pouliot – I knew we had to work together. Quirky might as well be my middle name (I don’t have one, so the spot is wide open), and Tracie’s style is exactly that. I’ve been wanting a family portrait of sorts with me and my animal menagerie for some time and Tracie was totally into making it happen. I sent her a bunch of photos of the six of us and she captured everyone’s personalities so, so well. I wish you could have seen the size of the smile on my face when my illustration showed up in the mail this week! For now our family portrait is hanging on the refrigerator until I get it framed, but I suspect I’ll be working with Tracie again and again in the future for one of a kind gifts.

You know how that moment feels when you discover the artist you’d like to paint the portrait of yourself that’s sure to hang above your ancestors’ fireplaces for millennia? Oh, you don’t? Cause I do. Her name is Erin Fitzpatrick and her style is crazy good. And she takes commissions which is sort of the key to this whole imaginary endeavor anyway.
