The first four weeks

27 January 2015

So I set myself this challenge to create some sort of art using my ridiculous (and growing) collection of discarded library catalogue cards. At the time I figured it would be a good way to: force myself to do something creative at least once a week on a tiny (3×5), unintimidating canvas; try out new […]

In lieu of a newsletter, marsala'd

First things first: Pantone declared “Marsala” the colour of the year. That’s it up there, the background colour on that illustration. Kind of gross, right? Is it just me? Ever since I published the first edition of this un-newsletter, I’ve been seeing stuff about email newsletters all over the place. Like this article on how […]

20 days

21 January 2015

I resolved to take at least one picture a day this year. I’ve done this before and I think I made it to day 225 before realizing that instead of being inspired by the daily practice, I was overly burdened by it. Here’s to getting through all 365 this time.

Making plans, dreaming dreams

27 December 2014

You guys, 2015 is right around the corner! I am making plans and dreaming dreams. A few months ago, I posted a picture on Instagram of a stack of discarded library catalogue cards. Hey, librarian occupational hazard: when libraries ditch their old card catalogues (as they have been doing for the last few decades), it […]

You’ve probably heard of NaNoWriMo — that November tradition where you pledge to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, using the NaNoWriMo community for support along the way.  There are all sorts of spin-offs (NaBloPoMo, NaNonFiWriMo, etc.) and NaNoDrawMo is the drawing version where you draw 50 images over the 30 days of November […]
