I've been working with the lovely Erin of KIND Boutique on some illustrations for her new online shop! They are coming along so nicely, and should be up soon. Here's a sneak peak of the vintage page header and new Adella Ad. KIND stocks designers who are working with sustainable fabrics, and work in an eco-friendly mindset. Keep an eye on KIND, great things are happening!

Dia:Beacon

I went on a super secret adventure with work today. Met secretively at Grand Central in the morning and took a train upstate to go to Dia:Beacon it was an art kid nerd out moment, it's a HUGE renovated Nabisco factory that has been turned into this naturally lit art dream. Above is one of my favorite exhibitions an installation by Imi Knoebel called 24 colors-for Blinky. Each of those panels is at least 6-8 feet tall. The center is filled with different types of art ranging from light installations, to intensely calculated drawings on walls, to monoliths, and 20 foot deep sculptures that give you vertigo just looking at them. It was a wonderfully inspirational day trip. If you're in the New York area, you should plan a trip up yourself.

Amy Borrell TiPi Love


I stumbled upon Amy Borrell's site Cake with Giants the other day (how I hadn't seen her before, I have no idea). She makes beautiful things. These hand sewn Tipi / Teepee sets are wonderful. I want to line a whole windowsill in them. They're available in her shop.

Popshot Magazine


Issue 2 of Popshot Magazine came in the post today! Popshot is a UK based poetry and illustration publication whose self described purpose is being "gently intent on hoodwinking poetry back from the clammy hands of tweed jackets and school anthologies...We are here to showcase the poetry of today and tomorrow with the whimsical arms of illustration wrapped tightly round it"


I did an illustration for the poem titled Job Ref. 135 written by Ronny Kong (above)


The new issue is filled to the brim with talented illustrators.
This piece above by Valero Doval is one of my favorites!

The NY Art Book Fair

Saturday Morning, I headed up to Long Island City to go to PS. 1 for the NY Art Book Fair (sponsored by Printed Matter this year). It was incredible! Hundreds of presses, booksellers, and independent artists / publishers from all over the world. Above is what came home with me. a Mini Book from: Nathaniel Russell, a fold out Poster size booklet and letterpressed postcard from Rachel Domm, a Book called "My Things" by Gabriela Gr√ľndler published by Edition Patrick Frey, and a wonderful book by artist Ryoko Aoki, called Chain Ring that is full of drawings, notes and illustrated bits. Also loads of beautifully printed business cards, pamphlets and publication lists. All in all, a very crazy, inspiring trip. Let's get bookmaking!

Sheepless.org
