Not a Newsletter

Hi! You know, I often find myself wishing where was a blog or tumblr dedicated to each of my random interests. I keep a mental list of these, complete with possible titles. Here are some recents: Water From Below, a blog devoted to the care of finicky indoor plants The Fifth Song, a music blog […]

my bathroom cabinet for #creativeUNblock #2

So the February project for The Jealous Curator’s #creativeUNblock challenge is to document the contents of your bathroom cabinet/medicine shelf. I know it’s only February but, you guys, this is easily the most fun art project I’ve done so far this year. Here’s why: I love drawing objects. Simple as that. I knew that before […]

20 days more

Forty-one days into #project365 and I’ve learned a few things: It always helps to have cut flowers in the house because flowers make delightful subjects (especially in February).

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 […]
