Summer Plans - there’s still time

For those of you who know me, you already know that I should have a lot more free time over the next month or so. So it’s art & project time!

I’m super excited to create a new set of art, my prints and paintings are all looking a little bit dated these days. In addition to new art I will be working on a blog about health and happiness, “And the Lost Girls”. (Named after the lost of boys of Peter Pan of course.) I warn you that it’s not much now but plans to become more robust in the coming 3 months.

As for art & inspiration I will try and keep it coming here on the Tumblr blog.


Here’s a peek at some new work in progress:

There’s a new gallery on Alberta; It’s called Antler.
It’s tiny, and lovely, and the owners are so nice. The art is consistently hip and gorgeous. I recommend it to Portlanders and out-of-towners.

*Some of my favorite photos found this week.

Jon Foster, is amazing, and for some reason his work reminds me a little bit of Arthur Rackam.

It all seems very Modern Fashion meets Toulouse Lautrec to me. Happy Sunday Everyone.

My new favorite Illustrator: Dan Park 

That’s him as a kid, and that’s one of his awesome illustrations. Ah,  I love seeing childhood photos of artists! 

I found one of this artists prints online a long time ago, I saved it and loved it so much I got it printed out at Kinko’s!  It’s on my wall but I’ve never known who the original artist was, Until Now: MiniminiatureMouse Art

She’s a mix between Art Nouveau + Tattoo Art + Color Explosions.  I can’t believe how much commercial work she’s done.

NW Modern/ Architecture + Art Show PDX

What defines northwest modern art and design?
Is it the rich natural environment that inspires, is it the eclectic sense of design that mixes without pretension or is it the creative class of individuals that flow into this region bringing fresh ideas and energy to the Pacific Northwest?
~ Northwest Modern. 

This show is in the Tombly House in SW: 4449 SW Twombly St., Portland, Oregon
Visit for more details: http://www.nwmodernshow.org/

The show only runs through the 28th of October, so go check it out.


The person behind the art:

EVERYDAY MAGAZINEEveryday Magazine is a magazine about graphic designers & other creatives, focusing on the people behind the works rather than the work itself. The magazine tries to keep to what magazines do best, instead of trying to imitate what the internet already does better. Therefore, the focus is mainly traditional journalism & photojournalism, resulting in a magazine that you sit down and take your time with, a contrast to the restlessness of the youtube-generation.”

what inspires you?  why do you create?  what do you create?  when do you feel the need to create and how do you go about it?
