le temps des copains et de l'aventure

it's been a week since i've settled in my little corner of brooklyn. i can see the verrazano bridge from my window and gravesend bay is just a few blocks away, so the summer breeze occasionally brings a sea-salty smell. at night, those windows across the way light up just like in my drawings.

tomorrow morning i'm off to kentucky for b's wedding (yes, i can barely contain my happiness), and from there straight to ohio for two weeks. i have a weekend pass to the WMC fest, so if anyone happens to be in cleveland june 8-10, come say hello! (my pal tuesday bassen will be speaking at the festival on sunday) i'll pull most items from my shop until june 14th, but take along some postcard sets and elephants, just in case.

the wolves inside

wolves inside
"there are two wolves fighting inside you" - another full page and decorative border for the new issue of lone wolf. i believe this parable originally comes from cherokee legend, but here it's been re-imagined to fit the magazine's fairytale aesthetic. (here is a small interview!)

surprise feature on design*sponge this morning! i finally got the chance to thank grace bonney in person for putting me on the map two years ago - when i met her at the YCN opening last month, along with julia rothman, kate singleton, and many other lovely people.

so many thanks to all for supporting my move to new york - with your comments, emails, friendly offers to meet for coffee, and visits to my shop. i have quite a bit of work to finish up this week, but the good things that await at the end of may will feel that much more deserved.
