When you have to pause and admire the colors on your desk. Happy weekend!

"What we need is here." –from Wendell Berry's "The Wild Geese"

Honored to pen some letters for @floodmagazine's tribute to the Beastie Boys' "Check Your Head" in FLOOD 6.

Moments with piles of things scattered throughout my studio that needed to be cleaned up weeks ago. 🌈 (Real life!)

Days have been heavy on screens and light on ink and personal studio time lately, but πŸ•―πŸ•― to ever-improving our rhythms, routines and ways of being and making in the world.

Stacks on stacks γ€° Outtakes from an editorial lettering project γ€° In foreverlove with splatter γ€°

From last night's cola pen spree. Experimenting with different metals & gauges.

Envelope liner outtake.

External, internal, all of it.

Listening to Becoming Wise by Krista Tippet and warming up... and pausing every 2 minutes to take notes because it is rich. πŸ‘Œ

Name the shit (πŸŒˆπŸ’©we've all got it! πŸ’©πŸŒˆ), get to know it and it has less power. Know your light, because that is powerful, too.

This is part of a piece I'm working on about authenticity, which leads me to vulnerability, which can start to feel like overused buzz words... but still hold so much power. The deeper I go along the creative path, the more there is to explore and the more pieces of myself I find along the way. Sometimes it is a bright, joyful journey, sometimes it is a foggy, heavy journey; more often it is a bit of everything, all at once. This isn't news, but it can be easy to forget, get discouraged, get lost, hide away and forget to breathe through the shit.

This was a foggy week, but I eventually remembered to breathe, then breathing was hard and now here we are. Being a human is crazy and beautiful; we're all crazy but at least we're in it together. πŸ¦„

At my desk with the windows open to enjoy the smell of the approaching rainstorm and do some ✍️ in this moody light. Happy Friday!

Connections connections parallels connections new stuff old stuff life.
