both of these started out as throw-away sketches but at some point became something i liked. i'm particularly fond of the little falling people. they might get a piece all to themselves.

I have from the library "The Vintage Book of Feminism" edited by Miriam Schneir and "New Vintage Type" by Steven Heller & Gail Anderson (or Anderson & Heller, no?). Expect retro screenprinted Feminist posters any day now.

Here's Richard Preston talking about Giant Trees.

Boundaries and claims

current preoccupation: territory.

i've been recieving unwelcome gifts. django's own way of defining territory.

Inspiration: Amy Cutler, Kristen Bjornerud, Cherri Wood

I'm a big fan of this style of painting, that minimal but finely detailed contemporary folk. It makes me want to go have sketching days in Chester Beatty library.

Blog of the week, A billion tastes and tunes, led me to amy cutler (above) and kristen bjornerud (below). Great stuff.

Love this. Cherri Wood's blog;

Just want to direct your attention to Daydreamer, an online art, music and photography magazine. It's jammed full of stuff, loads of articles, interviews and artwork and pretty pictures, and really nicely laid out. I love how it actually feels like a magazine, not just the look, but how it reads. I still prefer my books to my blogs in that respect, so it's a lovely touch. I have an illustration featured in it, many thanks to Arsheen and Anahita. i'm grateful to be included in something with so positive a theme. i do worry my pictures are terribly depressing to the people not in my head. their facebook page is here.

The illustration featured is now up for sale on the website as part of the Red Cross Appeal.
It's "Choose your Price", so give the biggest money! it all goes straight to Red Crosses response to the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
