How have I yet to mention this here!? Two good friends and former classmates of mine have recently entered the world of blogging.
Jessie-Lee Nichols is a graphic designer who began The Hyphen Tantrum a few months ago in an effort to get her brain around something other than her day job in data entry. You’ll find her constantly posting great work, things that inspire her and a ton of great items that she’s lusting for over on Etsy.
Kim Davies, a graphic designer and illustrator, just started her blog this week! (She’s already a more frequent poster than I am). While she admits that the direction of her blog hasn’t been decided, I’m sure it will be filled with her work and many inspiring posts.
Jessie-Lee and Kim are both super talented and wonderful people, so I know they would love to see some new followers. So definitely keep an eye on these two.
I’ve been a big fan of Jolby’s (the duo of Josh Kenyon and Colby Nichols) work since seeing it featured on Kitsune Noir’s Desktop Wallpapers last year. In only a few days, they’ll be opening a new show in collaboration with Ashley Forrette (an excellent photographer who’s also based in Portland). All of the pieces will be based around mythologies, legends and superstitions of the sea… which sounds pretty fantastic to me! (note: The rhyming was completely unintentional, I promise.) Like half the events I come across, I would love to go, but can’t since I live on the opposite side of the country. It definitely looks like it’ll be a wonderful show and if you can make it out, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
Thursday, February 25 (6-11pm) at Together Gallery, 2916 NE Alberta St. Suite A, Portland, Oregon.
The show will be running from then until March 20, 2010!
You can now view the whole show online right here!
You may also purchase pieces from the show through Together Gallery.
While I sadly missed out on The Scribble Project’s last big collaboration, I know I’ll be submitting something this time around. All you have to do is print out the train carriage template, draw something fun (by hand, no digital), scan it and send it in! The drawings have to be limited to black and white since they’ll be used for a coloring zine. Everyone should totally try to submit something by the deadline (now Feb. 26th!), especially since all profits from the zine sales will be donated to UNICEF.
