Hello friends and welcome to my brand new blog! My name is Amanda, Duh for short, and I am a designer and illustrator living in Austin, Texas with my husband, our pup (Cori) and our turtle (McGurt). I work as a full-time graphic designer at a nonprofit that supports the students at the University of Texas, but most of all, I love to do illustrations. Any kind of creative activity really gets me buzzed, from painting to cut+paste projects, embroidery to book-making; the list could go on. I just really dig it all. I hope to use this blog as a type of catalog and journal for everything I do that involves design, art and craft, and I am looking forward to seeing my progress along the way. I hope you will follow along and learn some new skills with me. Until next time.
