About Art & Things

This blog is for me. It’s a place for me to share my personal Design work and my Every Rainbow work. But it will also be a place to talk about my experiments to grow a side business, my musings, my frustrations, stuff from my personal life, and whatever else I care to share.

I will break the rules with this blog. It will not be targeted. I will not think about my target audience. I’ve been trying a 1000 different ways to grow a design business. It’s been glorious, frustrating, and full of stops and starts. I find that I often want a single outletto share all the things I’m thinking about and all the stuff I’m trying.

So, this will be a garage sale. It will be a mishmash. It will be my diary. I’d love for you to enjoy it, too, but if you don’t that’s OK, too.

About Me

Slack_-_Campaign_Monitor

My name is Davida Fernandez. I’m a (mostly) self-taught visual designer, illustrator, watercolorist, serial sketcher, and more.

My biggest influences are humor, nature, animals, unusual color palettes, and mid-century modern design. My eclectic style comes from a process of discovery through experimentation. I like to start with a simple idea and explore it, push it 10 steps forward, pull it 3 steps back and then take a right turn. And I always embrace happy accidents along the way!
 
Some of my earliest memories are of creating drawings and comics for my mom.  There has never been a time where creating art wasn’t an integral, daily part of my life. I did do a bit of formal art study in college, but I’m mostly homegrown.
 
If you look at my body of work, you can see that I have an open relationship with mediums and styles: I love digital, vector, watercolor, pen and ink, marker and everything in between.
