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 spoonflower.com 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?
