Very long time, no see!

In true Danie style, I'm late yet another year for Pasadya's birthday. We're officially past the terrible twos! Onto the exciting toddling stage of a three-year old. :)

I thought it would be fun to reminisce on some of the highlights of Pasadya's year, both personally and business-wise. I wish I could include every amazing project I had the opportunity to work on along with every person I had the pleasure to meet and collaborate with, but that would unfortunately be quite the MONSTROUSLY long post. 

So, here's a condensed version of Pasadya's year from February 12, 2014 to February 12, 2015:
First off, Pasadya's humble workspace moved from a sunny home office in San Antonio to a slightly higher view of downtown Austin in the spring. The space might be smaller, but it is still mighty and inspiring.

The summer was filled with homemade food, small gifts, and dear friends coming to Austin for weekend visits. Lots of puppy love happened simultaneously.  
Work was put on hold for a sunny, relaxing trip to Mexico. Talk about finding a way to recharge for the upcoming workweek!

Time was spent loving and documenting babies, coffee, family, and adorably happy families.

Lightning-speed work, communication, and a love for illustrating was put to good use with a collaboration with PaperCity Magazine when the leaves began to fall off their limbs and the temperatures dropped.

Photo shoots took place in collaborative workspaces in East Austin, and new transplants to Austin (from gorgeous Hawaii) were kind enough to help me find my way to said photo shoots. Downtime was spent with friends during warm mornings along the way.

More illustrations were made for collaborations, bold handwriting prints were created, more logo designs were created for fun-loving and hard-working entrepreneurs, and for the first time ever, Pasadya began offering custom, handwritten tattoo designs.

Photos were taken for fun as well as for business, challenging and inspiring paintings were created for heartwarming clients, and additional logos were made for growing businesses. 

In essence, Pasadya's second year in existence was wonderful; it was full of growth with creative projects and friendships, and I can't express how excited I am for its future ahead. Happy Birthday, pretty little Pasadya!
