Here are a few new bookplate designs I've come up with in the past couple of days while I've been sick. They'll be in the store tomorrow. I realized I didn't have a lot of designs for boys, so I did a few to even things up:
Little Boy Blue
I've also been corresponding with Carey from Quiet Hour Toys, and it looks like I'm going to be contributing to her fantastic web store! I sent her some brand new bookplate designs this morning... more on that when I hear back from her.
I'm sick again. The Creeping Crud came back.
In order not to dwell in my discomfort, here are some cool things I've been enjoying lately:
Steven Pressfield's The War of Art. A must-have for all artists. This book is such a great mix of inspiration and tough love that it immediately gets you off your butt. My friend James gave the book to me last year for my birthday, and had it signed by Mr. Pressfield. He cheekily wrote: "to Shelley, who doesn't need this book at all." It's fantastic.
This wonderful gocco print that I just bought from Lisa Congdon. I just love it.
