About Lois DeCastro, AfternoonArts

It started when I crayoned the walls at age 3 and I haven't stopped since. I'm a graphic designer, art director and copywriter and for more fun I paint in mixed media and love all forms of paper craft. All here in San Francisco. You'll find me with hands perpetually in motion on the computer or up to my elbows in juicy paint!

Lois, thank you for your like of my text submission to the greeting card challenge. The second part of this challenge should be interesting when art is matched to text. Best of luck in all the challenges this year. Corinne

Hey again …I don't know what the heck is going on, but I can't see any of your copy submissions. Or anyone else's for that matter – things must be going very top secret ;) I hope you do well with the voting – and I hope we can see the entries again …I thought there was still going to be a critique phase – yikes!

Hello Lois, thanks for the like on my copy submission …I struggled with that one a bit to pare it down, so it feels rewarding to know that it's been enjoyed – lol. You've written a great bio – you should have thrown in some copy submissions! Your high contrast artwork is quite striking, hope to see more work from you soon.

I appreciate your like on my work, Lois! I'm really enjoying the loose feel of "Dear Diary" and "Spotty," your ink wash & calligraphic design submissions.
