Illustration for a holiday package design that I then scanned and made to look like a chalk drawing. So excited to see the final package with all the other fruit drawings!

On another note, @rambleandride has been a great way to share my print and design portfolio. Thank you for checking out my stuff. I also post over @camrambling, which is a little more in depth and covers my work in photography, design, moto riding, and writing. It’s work + life. Come say hello! #design #handdrawn #illustration

A photo of California grasses off highway 80 from a couple weeks ago. Working on a quarterly zine about California — its complicated beauty and history, and as a symbol of the Wild West — through nature treks and visits to its cities (big and small). A guide and almanac with guts. First one will be out at the end of summer — excitedly figuring out the letterpressed map!

'Cam, rambling.' takes off in the fall too — my photo essay and writing project starts off in Antelope Canyon in Arizona and a visit to the Navajo Nation. And the Grand Canyon! Roadtripping with my favorite adventurer @anjel_v. Then a lifestyle doc with a favorite couple after their move to LA (via NYC and SF) and maybe a visit to the French countryside early next year to talk with two Americans running a vineyard in Vouvray.

Came across a great quote about work from Mike Rowe (you can see the whole thing over on my inspiration blog at camrambling.tumblr.com), but I think the line “Many people resent the suggestion that they’re in charge of the way they feel” is really right on. We forget sometimes the amount of power we have in our own hands, how our negativity colors our motivation and leaves us standing still, and the power our thoughts have on what we can do with the time we have here.

A little updated shot of the print shop after some rearranging yesterday. @scott_bon_vivants is loaning me his lovely wood library desk.

4 sheets of 40x30 chipboard today. A bus driver on the 27-line just said, “The girl with the big paper!” Oh car-less printer.

Identical Homes Vinyl Record // Music and Letterpress

Identical Homes celebrated the release of their full-length vinyl this week. This is the second time Daniel McKenzie and I have have teamed up on an album β€” I letterpressed the vinyl cover for his other music project Shuteye Unison a couple years ago. Below are some other music projects I’ve had the honor of working on over the past few years.
