i saw so many beautiful things today at the smithsonian institution's national museum of natural history in washington, dc. you should have seen that sea anemone sway! but the sparkling gems and minerals were my favorite (how can something so cold and lifeless have such a magnetic, all-knowing, mysterious aura?) the birds were okay, too.

i have been working away at my desk all week, with an endless supply of tea and NPR podcasts. it's a wonderful feeling to suddenly hit my stride after a period of frustration, and i wish i could maintain this level of productivity at all times.

i collaborated with amelia's magazine illustrators lesley barnes, emma block, natsuki otani, antonia parker, and thereza rowe to create an illustrated house for shelter's exhibition themed "up my street." each of us contributed a room to the house, representing different kinds of families, comfort, happiness, and security.
the beautiful A1 giclée print was on exhibit at coningsby gallery in london, and sold last night at a silent auction. all proceeds from sold artwork go toward supporting the homeless. as always, i wish i could teleport overseas on these special occasions, but alas. read amelia's blog about the event and see close-ups of the other rooms!
