Vintage Design: Coffee Tins

I found these vintage beauties rusting away in my father's garage. My father inherited them from my Mom's dad, and for two generations they've been used to hold nuts, bolts, odds & sods. These treasures are now mine to clean up and put on display in my apartment! I'm starting to have quite the vintage tin collection. 

Artsy Fartsy: Cross Stitching

Cross stitching is making a come back in a very modern way. However, I still have an appreciation for cross stitching of the past like this piece that was created by my great-great-great grandmother in 1820 when she was eleven years old. Look at how detailed the almost 200-year-old piece is....

HackerYou: That's a Wrap

That's a wrap for my 12-week program in Web Dev at HackerYou. I had a great instructor (thanks, Tiffany Nogueira!), learned so much and met some awesome people. I hope to be back at HackerYou in the fall taking their UX class! Thanks for the great learning experience HackerYou, it was a slice! 

I'm going to post my last coding project soon, it's another re-vamp of my project one: a site for The Streets I Know: Vegan Style. I can't wait to share it with all of you!

My Inspiration: Keith Haring

"Whatever you want to do, the only secret is to believe in it and satisfy yourself. Don't do it for anyone else." - Keith Haring

"Art is nothing if you don't reach every segment of people." - Keith Haring

Iconic 1980's Grafitti/Pop Artist Keith Haring passed away 27 yrs ago on Feb 16th. He was one of the first artists to open a Pop-up Shop (in 1986) and sell his work printed on fashion pieces and other items. This move made his art accessible to everyone.

The documentary featured below is a great piece on how Keith Haring's art, activism, & personality made a positive impact on Collingwood, Melbourne, Australia in 1984. And how 30+ years later the community and city worked to restore and preserve his 1984 mural.

Artsy Fartsy History: Graphic Design

Graphic Means is a documentary about the pre-computer Cut & Paste Era of Graphic Design, and you (and I) can get it on to Netflix by heading HERE. I know that as a Graphic Designer I can't wait to see this doc about the history of a profession that I love.
