Fiber to Fabric

It has now become a passion of mine because I love knowing that I’ve made a product from beginning to end. Read more of this post

March of Robots

March of Robots - Elliot LucasEvery March artists and illustrators around the country participate in a drawing challenge called March of Robots. The challenge is simple, design and draw one robot for each day of the month and then post it to social media. Drawing a robot each morning was a great way to kick start my creative energy and to work on my illustration and inking technique. Over the course of the 31 days I strived to make each design unique and looked to a variety of references for inspiration. Below is the complete collection of robots from the month long challenge.

Beyond the Earbuds | Annual Breakfast

FRCH Annual Breakfast 2017, Record Jacket

Each year, on the last Tuesday of January, FRCH hosts our Annual Breakfast. Our version of the State of the Union address, we take the opportunity to recap our successes of the past year and share our focus for the coming year. The format consists of quick presentations from each studio and discipline, highlighting key projects and goals accomplished. Several years ago we implemented music into the program … but not just background music … the ability for each speaker to select their personalized ‘walk-up’ music. Since then, the song selections have become a key tradition, with speakers agonizing over the perfect pick. This year, after many internal requests, we wanted to share our 2017 Annual Breakfast playlist with you! Read more of this post

Every family has a story to tell, welcome to ours … so pass your plate and allow us to share our joy, memories and waistline with you this holiday season.  Read more of this post
