Hello Friends! Hope you’ve all had a great week. One thing I’d like to do more now as I’m crowdfunding for myself— choose a day of the week and share about artists, creative things that are inspiring me right now. After all, good artists copy and great artists steal. Where would we be on this road without others to blaze trails and lead our way. Here goes:
One Illustrator I look up to: Kate Pugsley
Illustrations are a thing I am into this season. Because…why not! We’re all visual here. I love her use of bright colors. And yes, Kate is coming out with a children’s book in 2019. Virtual mentor for you ladies here!
One designer I would love to hang out with: Timothy Goodman
More like…designer I have a crush on. I spend more time looking at his pizza shirt at Uniqlo than actually eating pizza. If you like reading about feelings he has a fabulous tag #instatherapy_tim you can follow.
One Instagram account I really dig this week: Wendy @nomadicfare
Fun fact: I connected with Wendy way back over social media and finally met her in Taipei this week! We’re due for a proper coffee in May. Wendy travels and shares inspiring post along with fabulous photography on her blog and social media.
One musician I’ve been digging this week: Conner Youngblood
Seriously, if you’re an artist with a dog — I already love you. My favorite tracks: Everyday and Australia. One of those musicians you discover and immediately goes on google to read all their interviews. I’m going to write him an email this week 🙂
One Typographer that kicks a**: Stefan Kunz
If you struggle with perfectionism or putting your work out there every day. This guy is someone to follow for hand lettering + creative inspiration. Stefan’s motto: Create Something Everyday Even If It Sucks. My take away: create every day, because it might just be awesome.
And lastly, a quote not related to an artist but something I’m discovering for myself:
There is so much beauty out there waiting to be discovered.
And there you go, I will leave you with a beach photo from Yilan, Taiwan this week.
Till next time.
