Ever since I could remember, I have always dotted the "i" in Corinne with a heart. When I use to write my name as a child, my teachers use to say, "Is that a heart? You can't do that." But why couldn't I? Hearts are amazing. They're a symbol for love and passion- the most powerful emotions that have essentially made me who I am today. I was the only one in my class who had a heart associated with their name and I recall being so proud of it whenever it was mentioned. It was unique, simple and has stuck with me to this day.
When people ask me, "Corinne, what's your favorite thing to draw?" My immediate response is "hearts." It's 100% my go-to doodle… It's a reminder that everything that I put down on paper comes from an emotional place. Hearts make people smile. So I guess the real question is, "Why not draw a heart?" …THIS WORLD NEEDS MORE LOVE ANYWAY:)
You'll notice that a lot of my illustrations have to do with music. As a dancer, I am constantly influenced by it in an emotional and physical way. I don't know what I'd do with out this gift because it's one of those things that keeps me going in life. Music and dance are the world's best medicine. They unite people and express emotions that I cannot even put into words. I strive to visually communicate the passion that I have for both of these subjects and hope that I can inspire you to be true to yourself and listen to your passions as well.
So again, I go back to the symbol of the heart...It is my logo after all! I have manipulated my initials into its shape. The "C" is the left side of the shape, the "A" is at the heart's center and the "F" is represented backwards on the bottom right. (Another fun fact: the backwards F also resembles the number 7 which is also my lucky number. #bonus… thought that was pretty sweet)
By the way- CAF stands for Corinne Ann Fallone- that's me:) Long story short, I put my whole heart into everything I do. When I created my logo, I knew that this was the perfect symbol to represent my brand. I am humbled to have gotten the support from each and every one of you reading this and look forward to what this beautiful life has in store for me. I'm beyond thankful from the bottom of my heart and excited for the growth of CAF Creations!
