I absolutely love the way N.C. Wyeth painted all the gold coins in this classic illustration.
There were some old favorites and new (to me) discoveries during a recent visit…
…more of a townhouse/duplex crush.

I usually dislike painting on rougher watercolor papers, but every once in a while it works out.
From the artist’s statement:
“In my current project, Washed Up, I address the issue of plastic pollution making its way across the ocean and onto the shores of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve… The alchemy of Washed Up lies not only in converting a trashed landscape, but in the project’s potential to raise awareness and change our relationship to consumption and waste.”

A couple of months later, I noticed a pack of the farmer’s friends in a craft store and a series was born.
I am also obsessed with the poor man’s tilt-shift.

I love this Cavallini & Co. wrapping paper.
This book by Jeff VanderMeer is creeping me out in the best possible way!
I had forgotten all about this IBM typewriter cursive type!
A visit to Smith Family Bookstore is not for the faint of heart with its endless shelves and stacks of books. I particularly loved seeing these two sets with continuous spine art.
During a farm walk yesterday: three fields at three different times, yet they all match up quite nicely.
This genius display at the farmer’s market was attracting A LOT of attention.

Why not take a few minutes to hand-color that sign for the Bureau of Sanitation?
