About the Designer - Meghan from Lathe & Quill

by Rebecca Melsky March 27, 2023 1 min read

Hi there! I am Meghan from Kansas, where I am a mom and an artist. I have a degree in Visual Communication and I was a graphic designer in a marketing agency for over 6 years. I started my studio Lathe & Quill in 2017 to embrace my eclectic curiosity. Since then I have found a love of drawing animals, dinosaurs, flowers, and space themes; and transforming the illustrations into detailed patterns.

My websites:

What style of art do you feel most comfortable in?
I draw in Procreate and vector illustrations in Adobe Illustrator to create the elements that I use to build my final patterns.

What themes or topics spark (what you feel to be) your best work?
My kids always inspire me to make some of my best work, so I often draw: dinosaurs, animals, flowers, and rainbows because it brings a smile to their faces. But I make sure to add in some mushrooms and moths for myself.

How do you work? Digitally? On paper? AI/iPad with AI or sketchpad?
My usual routine for building new patterns begins with a sketch on the iPad, followed by inking and coloring on the iPad, and then I take the illustrations into my desktop computer using the Adobe Suite to build the patterns.

About the Designer - Carrie Cantwell

by Eva St. Clair September 02, 2023 3 min read

I’m an illustrator, surface designer and educator based in Atlanta, GA. I live with my boyfriend and our three rescue kitties, who very often make it into my art, especially the two black cats.

I feel very comfortable creating art for kids, because I'm really a kid at heart. I love cute animals and bright colors. I find it particularly satisfying to distill complex concepts into simple shapes that are stylized but easily recognizable.

Sienna Farr was one of Princess Awesome's first models, before our Kickstarter, before we were much more than a dream and a few dresses made of tee shirts and quilting material. She died in a fire that also seriously injured her mother on August 11, 2023, aged 13.
