Art House Sketchbook Project 2012

Posted on: October 12th, 2011

I signed up for the Art House Co-op Sketchbook Project 2012! It’s good for me to do these sorts of things, because it forces me to do them.

Basically, it works like this: you send them some money and they send you a sketchbook and you fill it up and send it back to them and they send it on tour, along with everyone else’s sketchbook,  at galleries and museums all over the world.

 

Imprint – a very fine design blog

Posted on: October 11th, 2011

 

Imprint is design blog that offers plenty of design-porn examples and photos, but also real food for thought. It’s head and shoulders above pretty much every other design blog, and I know because I subscribe to many and even have one.

Contributors include Steven Heller and Seymour Chwast. Do you know who those guys are? No? Then you should subscribe to and read this blog, because designers need to know those things.

Here is a story about an art event being held in New York, just in time for Halloween!
