Busy as a….

»Posted by on Nov 20, 2014 in Local Artists | Comments Off on Busy as a….

Back in college one of our subjects for design class was to design a PRINT magazine cover image. My subject was busy as bee. SO i set forth with my mighty colored pencils and started drawing. Over the years and after many moves to new homes.. my original was in much need of either tossing or repair. Since I’m always pretty attached to things I create.. I opted for repair. A quick iPhone photo shoot and open in Art Studio on my iPad gave me the tools for fixing my illustration. It took a few hours but I think it came out pretty awesome, plus I have now a digital version (no more portfolio hidden in the back of the closet) and plus this time of year, this gives me something more to keep me busy and out of trouble. Let me know what you...

About our new logo

»Posted by on Nov 14, 2014 in Local Artists | Comments Off on About our new logo

  People are always curious, at least we are, about how a logo is developed. Then why a particular version wins over countless others. Our logo took us just over a month to finalize. We wanted something at first that incorporated all aspects of we do into it. Well that proved way too busy for a clean look and practicality. While it certainly expressed everything we do it was too much, too busy and wasn’t fun. So we continued on. We decided that we should concentrate on the amin aspects of what we do, Web Graphics, Printing Folks Arts. With our company broken down into it’s four main elements it was much easier to determine the next step in logo development, and we finally came up with the below new logo. We graphed it out a bit to detail why we...

HM Print & Design at the Folts Home

»Posted by on Oct 23, 2014 in Local Artists | Comments Off on HM Print & Design at the Folts Home

Back in the Spring we were asked to create and share a project for the Folts Home in Herkimer as a presenter for the Herkimer Garden Club. The design was to be a table center piece, made of wood, and made simple enough that older people could have fun painting. The final piece would then be displayed in Folts Home at either the front counter or in the Cafeteria. So we started our design plans, which always start with a sketch, in our case a computer layout. Once the design is finished (top pic), a wireframe is printed (bottom pic) from which we use to cut our wood pieces from. This saves a lot of time and wasted wood, as we can move the pieces around and maximize wood use and in some cases safe a few cuts by butting pieces against each other and sharing that...

Great Utica Pumpkin Carve Winners

»Posted by on Oct 10, 2014 in Local Artists | Comments Off on Great Utica Pumpkin Carve Winners

Well, we did it. It was cold and windy but everyone who attended had a great time. Even amongst carvers, there was camaraderie. We even got invited to come visit a local wood carving workshop.. woot woot. Michael and I will definitely be checking that one out. Especially since I bought way more tools than I’ll never to carve pumpkins. While we didn’t get best overall we did snag the Carver’s Choice award, which to us is pretty dang good. To get voted for by other carvers, we couldn’t ask for more. So we are very delighted at our win. I wanted to thank Mike & TeriJo Mustard  for their support, CNY Awards & Apparel for nominating me to do this, and of course my amazing husband, Stephen Hesler-Mondore for always telling me, “You...
