If you’ve given me your mailing address your postcards are going out Monday! I was going to send them today but my local post office didn't have enough postcard stamps.::facepalm::
At the end of September I’m moving out of my studio to go on tour in Europe for a couple months with my band Worriers. It’s exciting, but I’ll be spending September painting as much as I can, as large as I can. Then I’ll be limited to things that fit in my lap or on my iPad.
I won’t be accepting any commissions for original artwork while we’re on the road so if you’ve been wanting me to work on something you can hold in your hands, please get in touch! I’ll still be doing digital illustration and design but I’m not bringing my usual art supplies on the plane so ::shrugs!::
I’ve amassed a large pile of drawings and paintings this summer, which feels great. If you have an art space or group show or THING where I could share some of them, I’d love to do more of that. I'm a part of a group show happening in Philly in October but more on that later!
Here are a few of my favorite things this summer:
This dark-pop song “I Know A Place” by Muna
Not only is it incredibly catchy but I found out it’s also a bit of a queer anthem. Dance around your room, this is one of the best songs I’ve heard in a long time!
The creative practice and advising of Marlee Grace
From her book "How to Not Always Be Working" to the art that she makes to her creative advising (that I found super helpful!) getting her newsletter every week is a highlight for me. Just passing along the wonderful creative vibes!
The newsletter Salty
A newsletter on dating, sex and relationships for women, trans and non-binary folks. Looking forward to seeing where this new project goes.
If you're on instagram, I've started using the hashtag #somanyfuckingplants whenever I draw something that references a plant, which is kinda a lot.
Alright, back to work. Enjoy the rest of the summer!
