Doodle a Day // Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Doodle time!

Well, this week appears to be crawling by at a snails pace thus far.  I started prepping for stage two of four of studio rehaul (either making a paper stand or copping out and buying a flat file..ha). Stage 3 consists of canvas rack. Stage 4 organize years worth of art and design magazines. Stage 5? Work! Create! Work!

Hope you’re having a lovely week…here’s to a happy Wednesday!

Doodle a Day // Monday, April 27, 2015

Well, my doodle says it all…I’m tired!  Soooo tired!  I’m so ready to go to bed–haha! 😀  I must admit, I’m already ready for bed ha!

Today was busy! We realized today that we only have two full weeks of school left and two days, so the crunch time has started! Get ready for end of term chaos!

Cheers,

Friday Fun // Friday, April 24, 2015

Yay! Friday!

This week was both fast and slow (how is that possible?!) but I’m glad it’s here!  Here’s the roundup of this week’s favs for me!

1 //  From The Library :: Exhibition in D.C.
I love books! 

As well as art and design, I am a voracious reader. I have a list of shows I want to see when the semester ends, but this one’s on the top of my list. The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. is having an exhibition of Florentine Publishing during the Renaissance (which is one of my favorite art periods, too, so win-win!)  It’s up until August 2nd so here’s to books!

2 // The Foundry || Artists Co-Op
Shameless self promotion

The Foundry is a project I’ve been working on with some friends and community members in my hometown (Chambersburg, PA) and we’re getting close to launch!  On May 21st we’re having a community meeting so if you live in southcentral PA, stop on by! 🙂

3 //  Skillshare
Lots of goodies!

Ugh! I’m obsessed with this site!  I loooooooooooooove all the courses I can take here and have enjoyed every one that I’ve finished so far (Hand Lettering, Logo Design by both Aaron Draplin and Ellen Lupton, Daily Monsters with Stefan Bucher, Drop Caps by Jessica Hische etc etc)…They now have month memberships and I have loved having access to everything. Not a paid sponsor, just wanted to shout out it’s awesomeness 🙂

4 // Hand Lettering
Speaking of lettering…

Speaking of lettering, I’ve been working on building a few projects for next fall and I’m going to have the students do some lettering by hand before they even think about getting on a computer. (ha!)…I’ve put together a collection of my favorites that I’ve wrangled this week for inspiration!

5 //  Beach Dreamin’
Where’s summer????

So I’ve been dreaming of summer and alas the temperatures this week took a massive nosedive (YUCK!)…from last Saturday’s gorgeous 78º to today’s….40º F!   Double yuck!  I was sent a travel catalog (bus tours) and saw one to Cape May. I’ve never been there (it’s only about a 4 hour drive, so no excuses this year) and there’s a ton to do…looks so cute too! And to dream about warm days and the beach…that sounds delish! Let’s go to the beach!
