Breakfast Love

This is a card we're currently working on... not 100% pleased with it yet...  We're trying to convey a relationship that's perfect, like bacon and eggs, and just works so well together...  Don't know if it will become a card - sometimes an idea comes together really fast, other times it can take several years.  Stay tuned to see what happens!

Birthday Croc (thumbnail)

Here's one of the many rough thumbnails I've had in my sketchbook over the past year for this design... generally I don't scan my drawings into the computer - it takes too much time... so I just take a quick photo and download it, instead.  Doesn't look as nice as a scan, but it does the trick.

Birthday Croc

Here's another card we're working on right now... "Birthday Croc."  It's based on an idea I've had for awhile now, but was never able to pull together into a design I was pleased with... notice that little bird on the back?  He's becoming my "Where's Waldo" - showing up in all sorts of cards...  This will be the first time I've combined the colors poppy, pool, and jadite before - should look pretty neat.

Cheery Clouds (really) Rough

I keep a small sketchbook near me a lot of the time - a place to jot down ideas whenever they come to me... most of the time they manifest themselves a little bitty thumbnail sketches... very poorly drawn - just trying to capture the idea as fast as possible.  As you can see this is a extremely fast little sketch - but I guess it was all I needed.

Cheery Clouds

Here's a card we're working on right now - I think we'll call it "Cheery Clouds."  Something to cheer you up (on a rainy day).

Our First Post

Welcome to Maginating's blog - it's a beautiful rainy afternoon here in Studio City and I'm working on some new cards... thought I'd share one with you today. It's called... actually, it doesn't have a name yet. Perhaps I'll call it "Cheery Clouds." Anyway, please keep your eyes peeled as I'll be posting our progress this year and all the growth that happens when you're a young company.
