2021, like 2020, had us continuing to hunker down and try to stay safe through this pandemic. Between projects, I spent a lot of time wandering outside with my family here in the Pacific Northwest. It was a year of growth for Life Science Studios in many ways. I had the chance to work with a lot of new clients from all over the world and create illustrations about everything from fly brains to disease transmission. Every project was rewarding and a wonderful learning experience for me. Many of my projects from this past year have yet to be published, so I can't wait to share them with you when they come out in 2022!
The mushroom shop also grew this year as I expanded to selling mugs wholesale in a number of small shops in Montreal and Oregon. I also added a few new designs and hope to add more next year.
The illustration business isn't the only thing that is grew in 2021... I have been busy growing a new human as well! Our little girl is due in March and we can't wait to meet her. I will be spending January and February wrapping up existing projects and then going on maternity leave. I will be back to taking on new projects and clients in July 2022. Wishing you and your families a safe and happy new year!
