It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to post. Not because there’s been nothing going on, but I was feeling under the weather fighting off a sinus infection. So, let me fill you in. Besides all the art and sewing stuff, I am also a graphic designer. An art catalog I designed for artist, Jessica Rath, was part of a show, Pushing the Press, at the Architecture + Design Museum (Los Angeles) on Thursday. It was a great night and I got to meet Robbie Conal, a guerrilla poster artist noted for his gnarled, grotesque depictions of U.S. political figures, who I had long admired. There were many beautiful print pieces in the show and I was honored to be among them. Here I am showing off my catalog.
I was feeling pretty punky on Friday, so all I could manage to do was make some really yummy pasta and watch bad TV. No painting, sewing or embroidery because my head hurt. I love to cook and find it to be a very creative outlet. This is pasta with broccolini, mushrooms, tomatoes, eggplant and garlic. Simple, but dee-lish!
By Sunday I did manage to work a bit. I started another wristlet using a recycled piece of fabric from a friends favorite jacket and added some hand stitching. Still debating if I want to do a small accent block print in the center of other side besides the stitching or not. Any thoughts?
I also started some catnip cat toys for my Etsy shop. More on that later, gotta get back to the graphic design world…
