March is "Women's History Month" and each year for the past nineteen years, we've celebrated with a guided tour of some of the best designing women we could find in the world. Some of these were actually sent in by readers, others were discovered online by staff. . Ladies and gentlemen, we present the 19th Annual Designing Women edition surf two :
* Gergana Plummer: You Don't Need A Computer
* Fanciful hand lettering we've seen before
* Eleanor Grosch long boards and a lot more
* Twenty-Five ways to love Jessica Walsh
* Lori dazzles you with happiness
* Andrea Kalfas
... and more to come!
Andrea Kalfas is a freelance illustrator currently soaking up the charm of Baltimore, MD.
She earned her BFA in illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Recently, she published her newest zine, "Warlow's Guide to Wizards, Sorceri & Familiars Arcane" a playful fictional guide to young magi in the selection of familiars, featuring original character and creature designs. Scout Books also recently released a set of blank notebooks featuring her cosmic cover art, available for purchase on their store here. (main page is a side scroller!)

Fanciful hand lettering we've seen before
Yes, we visited with Katie once before, and we're delighted to be back again
Katie got our attention with a HUGE body of work including a lot of fanciful hand lettering. Problem is, she seems to have falled off the edge of the world. Her web site has fallen into the hands of an affiliate "Parked" page, and other references have gone dead all together. Her last blog entry was in 2012 -- But it was a good one! Where in the world are you Katie???

Eleanor Grosch long boards and a lot more
Eleanor caught our attention because she creates wonderful art for skateboards and long boards -- which is what my son is into. So we decided to take a look.
Amazingly enough that's just a tiny sample of all the art and design she creates, for all kinds of clients all over the world. WOW... with a great big smile! (Don't miss this interview!) ...
