The Robot Alphabet

Big news today! I have compiled all of my Robot Alphabet prints into a picture book that you can download to your Kindle or iPhone! Follow this link and take a peek. If you don't have a Kindle you can get the Kindle reader app for free. That way, you can see the book in full color, too. I've priced the book at $2.99 but you can also download a free sample. If you do, please leave a comment and let me know how it looks on your device. I would love to hear what you think about my latest venture!

Subway Art

Like a lot of New Yorkers, I'm not a huge fan of the MTA. But they manage to get some pretty cool art down in the subway cars. This piece by Duke Riley really stopped me in my tracks (har har).

I love everything about this piece: the detail, the whimsy, the off-white/off-black combo...I stared at it the whole way home. Click on the images for a larger view. Here's a link to buy it if you'd like a piece of NYC on your wall.

Mid-century love

I swooned when I saw this treasury on the front page of Etsy this morning. For the last year, I've been keeping an inspiration folder on my computer desktop. It's been a wonderful tool in developing my style and I highly recommend it. Whenever an image really strikes me, I file it away. It takes two seconds and when I'm lacking inspiration I just open up my folder and browse. One thing I've discovered is just how much I love mid-century modern design, and this collection really nails it.

Y is for Yellow

Y is for Yellow, and all the rest of the alphabet, is now up in the shop. I'm feeling happy today because it's raining instead of snowing. My fig tree is sprouting figs. My latest painting is coming together. It's still light out at 5pm. A friend who was supposed to move away is staying here after all. All good things, and many more to come. For you too, I hope.
