Step Into Easter, Step Into Spring...

Happy Easter Sunday Lovelies, 

I'm hoping you all had a gorgeous day with your family or a blissful 4/20 (depending on your choice of worship). I'm sitting here in my family's kitchen back in Stouffville Ontario Canada, writing as the sun is setting on a beautiful April's day. My relatives and sister have left to return to their respective homes, and I'm listening to the unfamiliar sound of silence - something I don't hear often, if ever, in crazy NYC.

Easter always makes me feel renewed. It marks the time of year where everything feels new, from the earth thawing from a cruel winter, to seeing your own bare legs and arms in Spring dresses or sleeveless tops again. This year, Easter brought a much needed return home and an even more exciting development, the update to Travel Write Draw!! After 3.5 years, it was due.

For those of you who have been following my blog since July 2011, or anytime thereafter, you've probably become pretty familiar with the old template I had up here. It became clear to me, over the last 6 months or so, that my illustration ability and style had far outgrown the frame of Travel Write Draw....and so the transformation began. I've spent my Easter weekend not only emotionally regrouping but also career catapulting and I'm so excited to share the results with you all here.

Stay tuned for some new blog branding design work to come, but until then I leave you with this Cadbury Mini Eggs x Burberry inspired Easter heel I envisioned and illustrated. Since my Easter Sunday involved very little chocolate OR sweets, I'm absolutely drooling over the thought of one of those mini eggs melting in my mouth (dear lord give me strength)!!

Much love,
Meag xx

    1. @vanillaskydreaming maybe once you travel to Greece we can do a collaborative post since I was there last June. I did lots of illustrations inspired by my trip there :) Would that work?

      Here is a sample:
