August 25, 2017


This week I have been tucked in the studio working away on the fall season. I like to have a new image for each season, something that denotes this place and time. I also love to have a growing studio menagerie. Yesterday, I just decided to create an owl. I had so much fun first drawing and then getting this friendly soul into an online format, even sitting in the studio symbol. Shannon was kind enough to name him Hoo! Hi, Hoo!


Had a great time talking to Shannon about TV today! Total highlight. Been feeling quite lost today so I focused on doing work on my book (cryptic photo above) and got through the Ridler Drink pages. Finally got that photoshoot done. Think I might be moving on from Montreal food stories to Toronto!

Well Hoo is the cutest! And I love that he's hanging out on your logo like it is his branch, how awesome is that Jamie? Did you draw him first then scan him? Very cool!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Thanks, Suzie! I'm so glad you like Hoo!

Omg, your book looks AMAZING!! What program are you using? I am so impressed with what you are creating!

Suzie Ridler said...

Looks like we were both in designing modes Jamie. I am using Book Write via Blurb Books. Thank you!!! I needed that. It's hard to do a work in secret like that.

I'm so glad you got to share a bit. It's funny. I was just talking about that program with a friend of mine this weekend. She uses it to create photography books all the time.

It's Hoo!!! I love that you create a seasonal image Jamie, and how wonderful to add hoo to the menagerie!

I'm so glad we could chat TV, Suzie! I love this photo of the Ridler drink! It was wonderful to hear more about it when we got together on stART!
