It seems like forever ago, but I used to work in downtown Chicago. I really enjoyed being downtown; the energy, the restaurants, the architecture. Near where I worked, there was a place that had these cool lights that hung in the window. I was struck by the way the colors blended from the edges and the asymmetry of the lights. All these things inspired me to make a design for a shirt and call it: You Light up my Life; blending a familiar saying with modern design.
Recently, someone approached me asking if I could add some words to this bright design. Her dad owns a lamp shop and she wanted a fun way to announce he was going to be a grandpa.
After working out the details of font and color, we came up with this:
A lovely addition! Many happy wishes to the family with this new family addition!
