Anger and rage are driving my entry for this week’s Spoonflower design challenge: chinoiserie (drawn using the 6B sketching Pencil in the Procreate App)🔹 Inspired by a Chinese tile (circa 1700-1724) from the Rijksmuseum and the unforgettable words of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that were painted outside the doors of the Yale Law School #MeToo #womensreality #ThankYouChristine

CMYK: What a Thrill!

Cmyk1

What a kick! My pussy-hat-magenta-pink "Girls Just Want to have Fundamental Human Rights" chiffon scarf is in the just-released CMYK issue of Uppercase magazine! The issue is full of the work of many talented people and pulls together so many of my favorite things (the Folly Cove Designers, Josef Albers-inspired weavings, offset lithography, typography, and fabric just to name a few). There's even a story about an innovative new ink derived from car exhaust, that turns pollutants into artistic possibilities (Graviky).

Each page and that eye-catching drawdown cover by Baltimore Print Studios is a delight that leaves me feeling "hi-res"!
