Mike Lowery’s design for Cely’s Filipino Food truck


I recently had the pleasure of designing/illustrating the branding, banners and truck design for Cely’s Filipino Food.

Just a month after the truck hit the road, it was featured by Jacksonville magazine and Jacksonville’s channel 4 news.

Randomly flipping through the pages of People Magazine!

Imagine Suzy Ultman’s sister JoAnn’s, surprise, when she open this week’s People Magazine! Randomly flipping through the pages of one of America’s largest weeklies… she turned to page 160 and *wowza* spotted this clever bag made with Suzy’s fabric from Robert Kaufmann! For more Russian loveliness, get your hands on Suzy’s Masha & Friends notecards at Chronicle Books! Enjoy! – Jennifer



A Suzy inspired Sochi!?!

Like many of you, Friday night I was all curled up in my favorite cozy chair watching the Olympics opening ceremonies. Just imagine my surprise to see this utterly fantastic display!

All I could think of was our very own brilliant artist Suzy Ultman, or perhaps Dr. Seuss!

Here are a few of her pieces. Let me know what YOU think! Enjoy! Go Team USA! – Jennifer

Linda Ketelhut travels to Joshua Tree

Hi Lilla,

I’ve had a growing obsession with succulents since I first set eyes on one. I thought I could be satisfied with a casual purchase at the local nursery or a quick photograph while out on a walk….. And then I went to Joshua Tree. To some, a beautiful park to go camping and rock climbing. To me, a vegetation wonderland. Cacti, algae, desert shrubs, wildflowers….h e a v e n.

I was in awe discovering the different varieties of cactus in this stunning terrain. It was one of those weekends that left me feeling renewed and inspired – and more than ever wanting to channel my adoration into art. I thought I’d share a photo diary of some of my favorite Joshua Tree moments, along with a new Desert Collection inspired by the dusty, washed out colors of the California desert.

I hope you enjoy!


Giant granite boulders are a surreal backdrop for all the various plant life, while what must be thousands of Joshua Trees dot the land as far as you can see.

In their own modest, quietly expressive way, cacti are at once spare yet full of personality . Fragile, yet durable. Each one unique in shape and proportion. The “leaves” almost will you to pull them apart and reconfigure them as if pieces of a puzzle (are you sensing my obsession……).
