I just finished a large wall mural piece that will go in the MSP airport. Keep an eye out for it at the Explore Afar shop.
A couple years back I worked with the SC Johnson company on a logo for their Thanksgiving campaign. I keep seeing it pop up here and there this season. I thought I'd show a little process on that project. Hope we're all feeling thankful and gracious and recognizing all that is important around us.
A few of my favorite snaps as of lately with a lot of focus on textures. Follow along with more Instagram stories @aulku
Snaps ranging from my home in Roseville to the parks surrounding it, to new trinkets, art and decor for the home, to coffee shops downtown and sketchbooks.
I have been sorting through a lot of work lately—editing down, curating, repurposing, discovering, recreating. I'm trying to sort through who I am and what work I've done and what I'd like to present to the world. It's an overwhelming task. I have done so much work. It's hard to disregard some things you have such a strong connection to, and it's hard to show something off that you may not feel that proud of or happy about where the project ended up.
So I've decided to start curating through some of my own work. Bringing together pieces that may have never been seen together. And also hone in on specific things I've done that I am happy with—with some things that have never seen the light. It excites me to be able to browse through so much and group things together, to see how different some of my styles can be but also see how they could all fit together cohesively.
The only reason I'm calling them Visual Features is because I couldn't think of something better at this moment. And also, I've had a British accent stuck in my mind pretty much for the past five months and have started to cling onto quite a few specific words in my special twist of an accent. These are two of those words.
