Entries in murals (2)


Interviews to come!


Hi, everyone! I haven't been posting as much as I have been trying to work on a lot of things and my time was short! I am dedicating more time to this blog, and have two fun interviews coming up with 3 awesome women!

To give you a sneak peek of one such interview, here are some images of some spectacular murals which my friends Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn created. Jessie and Katey attended college with me at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and they were always incredibly inspiring to me. These artists did not conform to fads and their work has been created out of incredible ingenuity and creativity. Extremely community minded & connected, Jessie received her Masters of Community Art from MICA after we graduated in 2005, and has continued to work with members of the Baltimore community to take once blighted places and turn them into vibrant pieces of art.

You would be hard pressed to find two funnier and creative ladies, I feel super lucky I was able to meet them during my time at MICA!

Here are some photos to whet your appetite for the full interview coming soon!


Murals by Melissa Rose

As part of my illustration and graphic design business, I will now be offering, one of a kind wall murals for your home or place of business. I am very excited about this, as I have been wanting for some time to work on a larger scale and to make work that is very meaningful to my clients. Email me to set up a consultation meeting, I am able to travel to create the work (within reason around the Midwest...).

I look forward to seeing what 2012 brings! All my love to those of you who continue to follow the blog and support me with your friendship – I am one lucky lady. Here's to the future!
