A crazy weekend has come to an end, and now it’s time to kick it into high gear and finish up the last bits of work for my show this Friday at Argyle Fine Art! I spend Friday night out at Michaels to check out the amazing musical skills of a brand new band called NEIGHBOURS (check em out! you won’t be disappointed!) and then on Saturday I went out to retro night for my sister and I’s (twins) 28th birthday! We had so much fun dancing the night away in our crazy retro outfits!!
I am guessing that pretty soon I will hear back from NSCC as to weather or not I am accepted into the Graphic Design program! We will see!!! Other than that I am getting ready to dive right in to a whack of screen printing. My sister and I are setting up a printing studio within the next few weeks, and in the meantime I am going to start sketching out ideas for our prints. We will be starting off with stationary (cards and postcards) and moving on to art prints and all kinds of other neat things! I’ll keep everyone updated as we go along and let you know when our work is for sale! I suspect it will be a while yet as it will take some time to set up shop and brush up on our screen printing skills. It will be a great summer of learning and printing!
ANYHOW! You came to see the featured artist didn’t you? Today’s feature is a wonderful children’s book illustrator, Robert J. Lee. I could hardly find any information on him except for that he was born in 1920 and lived til 1994. His illustrations are beautiful and simple, and I will definitely be taking cues from his work as I chip away at my screen printing designs. I just love that old illustration aesthetic. Check him out!
