I don’t recollect posting my mermaid/octogroom suite here. It was pretty horrible to look at. I made some revisions and think it’s pretty cute? Hopefully. You tell me!


I’m close to graduating (MARCH!!) and I’ve been thinking it may be time to shut down the ol’ DMM. I no longer feel like this “brand” truly reflects the style I’ve been working on. I’m no longer interested in vectoring with great detail. While I love the look DIGITALLY…I don’t feel it translates well into a printed 5×7 card. I’m really interested in making my own stamps and working on some prints. I’d also like to work on some patterns (some of which will be in my portfolio) and see about getting to put them on fabric. I’d like to sew my own dresses. I’d like my brand to evolve into something MORE diy and a bit more grown up, heck I’m gonna be 28 this year. The name DMM made me feel special when I was younger but I don’t think the name holds the meaning anymore.

So..I guess what I’m saying is I’ll just ditch that…keep making the magic…but go by my name. Miranda Rodgers illustrations or some jazz like that. I don’t know just yet. Thoughts? I also like the idea of absurd names like Triangulated Bear Feet or Prisms a Paper for an etsy store or …okay I’m just typing random words together. You get what I mean?

  1. Something unique would be cool, but then something classic like “MIranda Rodgers Designs” or the like would work just as good. I know what you mean about growing up. I turn 30 on Saturday! In response to that, I’m getting all my hair chopped off and trying to wear less hoodie and jeans combo and something more fashionable. It’s going to be a long process!
    Whatever you choose I know it will be awesome 🙂

    thanks! your hair will be great and you can still be casual/comfy just elevate your hoodies to blouses and maybe flats or something instead of sneakers (if you wear sneaks)! like i wear dresses pretty much everyday but they’re just casual day dresses. there’s always a way to be a bit more polished but still be you! 🙂 i wish we lived closer…i love that stuff… ohh do a closet cleanse and go buy new stuff that your current wardrobe is missing! ha…i think that’s the first step usually recommended by the fashion gurus 😛
