Helen sent us these photos and writes:
“Hi Lilla, Ashley, Susan and Julie!
I’m back (in body and in mind) and happy to be back!
The trip was interesting to say the least. I missed human honesty, hot water on demand, drinkable tap water, real mattress, not worrying about theft and being duped, fast internet connection, my computer, work and of course you ladies!”
Tomorrow: See Jenn Ski’s new work.
Ok, so Risa walks into my studio and I immediately take a picture of her gorgeous necklace. And then I draped it on a blue vase for a better look. All neutrals: silver, pearly white, clear quartz, whisky quartz. I want to make this. I really do.
Tomorrow: Jon Cannell’s piece for Time International.
When you are given an assignment to illustrate a ‘how-to’ piece, you must show the information clearly, yet in a beautiful way. You are decorating the page. Trina does this so brilliantly. The have a bit of a David Hockney and an Edward Hopper quality. Check out the lone flip flops.
Tomorrow: Helen’s tea party for cats and dogs
I met this lovely lady at the Flea Market and bought the dress off her back. She makes these with vintage fabrics. Look how long it took me to blog this. About four months. Oh well.
Tomorrow: Trina’s gorgeous work on Aqualates
Here’s a how-to piece that Mike did for us for his portfolio. It’s a perfect style for Readymade Magazine. (Readymade art directors? Are you out there reading this?) It’s great to do pieces for your portfolio to attract the kind of work you want. I often say, “What you show is what you get.”
News Flash: We’ve gotten Mike a picture book, and he’s up for another. Can’t tell you more at this point, but I sure will as soon as I can.
Tomorrow: Vintage fabric dresses from a Martha’s Vineyard flea market.
