I designed my cherry blossom wall decal, then found a vendor to create it for me–Single Stone Studios.
Cherry Blossom Vinyl Wall Decal
Shelley loved the design so much, she asked if she could use it for sale in her online store. Since I made it for decor at the Moderati office, I figured I’d been paid for my work, so why not. Not quite sure I’m happy with the arrangement I made (I was supposed to get artist credit, and it’s a live and learn thing I guess), I’m still really happy that my design is available for others to enjoy. Had I not agreed to let the design be for sale, it wouldn’t be able to live on through others who enjoy it as much as I do.
If you happen to ever come across it in the real world, snap a pic for me. I’d love to see how it came to life!

In 2002, the mobile content world primarily consisted of ringtones. I was one of the first designers to create mobile “wallpaper” imagery (in addition to animated screensavers, and animated ringtones). Most of the content out there was for customers who like generic clip art, and I wanted to create images for customers who enjoy a little more creativity, edge, and youthfulness. One of my very simple designs (op-art pink bubbles) was a top-selling wallpaper, and that was always so gratifying. I enjoyed coming up with fun graphics, and always thought that mobile wallpaper is very similar to graphic t-shirt design (I’ve always wanted to print my “Domino!” image on a shirt–one day, one day…).
Domino! was inspired by my love for the game
