Inspiration Mondays

As the weekend turns to dusk and Monday rolls around, we find it difficult to find a reason to stay motivated during everyone’s oh-so-favorite day of the week. So with that in mind I’ve decided to make Mondays inspirational so we can be ready for the week to come.

This Monday we were inspired by these amazing JR Schmidt illustrations. They are so intricate and detailed that from a few feet away they don’t even look like the simplified geometric prints that they are. Take a look at these brilliant masterpieces on Fribly and Cargo!




Welcome to my new blog! I am Mel, graphic designer and illustrator. One of my passions is to edit and make designs better. I find it a welcomed challenging to see an interesting idea and make it even better with a new perspective.

Here I’ll be reviewing and critiquing things that I might come across that inspire me or otherwise so. I’d like to think I have an eclectic taste. Things you may see on this fun blog could be anything from my assorted interests. From art and design, to music, to even video games and cosplay, you’ll find that I have many random hobbies that I like to partake in. I hope you enjoy my rants and maybe even get inspired by the many sparkles I’ll share here.

Additionally, I’ll be posting various nonsense that I enjoy and things that go on through planning my wedding. I feel the need to document my experiences and research to help inspire other brides around the web. I hope you all enjoy the things you find here!

Thanks for reading! -Mel
