The other book, I Just Like To Make Things, intrigued me.... maybe because the marketing crew did a great job. I saw quite a few ads for this one and other artists talking about it. Any who, it looks like its full of tips and creative fodder that I don't mind dipping into. Anything to ignite the creative soul is what I say.
I also had a chance to go to our not so local Barnes and Noble. Takes us over 20 mins. to get to one now. So many book stores have closed down. I miss spending my time at a local bookstore on the weekends checking out the new magazines, books, and music... but I digress. The two magazines I had the pleasure of buying are both imports. Paper Stack, a book full of designer paper from the U.K. and Flow magazine from the Netherlands. If you are a lover of paper, these two are def. recommended.
These were my snack for a few days. Bought it at a place called Cocohoado, hot and warm. Yum! Hoado means walnut in Korean. These are little cakey treats made in the shape of a walnut with sweet black bean and a walnut inside.
My Art Snacks also made it on my desk this week. In the package this week: Aristo 3FIT Mechanical pencil, M. Graham & Co. Artists Gouache Sienna, General's White Charcoal Pencil, and Connoisseur Protege Taklon Brush.
Meanwhile as you can tell I love having music in the background as I work. I get excited when I find new music to love, but whole new genera is even better. Electro Pose from France. Here is an example of it. Enjoy!
