What began as a "three month adventure" has extended to a full blown life in New York. I'm so grateful for every tiny thing that fell into place and made the last year possible. Wild ride y'all!
Recently I was invited to contribute a portrait to a storytelling project by UK-based Christian Aid Collective. I made this drawing of Arash, an Afghan refugee who's chosen to remain in Greece to translate for others. You can read his story and others at christianaidcollective.org.
Dropped off 100 handmade valentines at Cuyana's Nolita pop-up for their participation in the Love Elizabeth Street event. It runs Friday to Sunday at 266 Elizabeth Street, swing by if you're in the neighborhood!
We’re still into adult coloring, right? Last Christmas my siblings and I drank some wine, colored, and had really nice, low-key conversations. I’m hoping there’s more of that this year! So my gift to y’all: a very festive Christmas drawing you can download and print with the last of your mom’s ink cartridge. Download at the bottom, track down your own colored pencils and boxed wine. Hope it is as fun to color as it was to draw, warm fuzzies to you all!
I’ve hunted far and wide for the perfect planner, having this one in my mind the entire time. For a few years I had my dad print and mail the pages to me, but this year I’m printing through Amazon and wanted to make them available to everyone!
These open-dated planners are designed for wrangling schedules and mapping priorities, especially when life gets really crazy. The insides are simple and focused, and the covers bring some sunshine to the bottom of your bag. Here's hoping 2017 holds better time management for us all!
Next week I’m heading to Philadelphia for my fifth Lost Type field trip! Somehow Dan (grayhood) has wrangled a week full of really great events. We've got a happy hour Wednesday (9/14), lecture at Philadelphia University Thursday (9/15) and an art show to close out the week Saturday.
There will also be plenty of posting on the Lost Type blog and social accounts, feel free to follow along from afar!
