I may have to look at book covers differently...

Employees at the French Librairie Mollat in Bordeaux posted these Instagram photos. Mollat was the first independent bookstore in France and has been in business since 1896. Ah! French wit.
You must go see the rest here, one more fun that the next.

Buried Treasure

While I play around with a new design for the blog...stay tuned...I'll post some things from the Buried Treasure file. I originally posted this on August 26, 2011.

And,  yes, it is still raining in Seattle. But there's some sun in the immediate future of B and  me!

The artist is Milliande. After the first dizzying moment, she settles down to do some serious "grid" sketching. I love watching her work.

Painting Patterns

One of my favorite things to do....painting patterns in random, loose fashion.  Using as backgrounds, manipulating digitally, cutting up for postcards and collage. So far, using acrylic and ink...will bring out some stamps and maybe the gelli plate for more layers. I love to work on old calendars, especially those big, matte, screen-printed designs from Snow Graham, Paper Source, etc. And catalogs with lovely paper from Anthropologie are quite nice (except they sent a glossy one the last time...ugh.) But really anything will do. Then more playing with close-ups and filters for lots of design surprises.
