Just got back last night from the first ever Kanoo Music Festival in Brookeville Indiana. Pretty great turnout for their first year and some local bands that everyone should check out. My personal favorite was a local Cincy band Lemon Sky, look those dudes up!
At the festival my friends and I were selling some local, home grown, organic art and I have some left over!
I have seven 3/4″ handpainted wooden pins left at my disposal. They’re crazy cute and you should treat yourself to one!
If you’re interested they’re $2 a piece and can be bought from my store on Big Cartel
The man and I just returned a few weeks ago from our Virginia vacation. We ate onion rings every day…I’m not proud of that one, we saw a bear, hiked part of the Appalachian trail (pretty proud of that one) and we climbed Stony Man Mountain! It was gorgeous and definitely filled up my outdoorsy meter which was teetering on empty from being cooped up in Cincinnati.
It was a long day of looking at natural bridges and sweating, naturally we needed a beer break and the strong man competition.
Our second day was clouded out. No mountains that day but hours of hanging out on the Skyline Drive and sipping overpriced coffee in the Skyland Resort as we waited out the rain. Also bear poop…lots and lots of bear poop.
Finally some freakin’ moutains, am I right? It was…gorgeous. I have a new box on the bucket list: Hiking the Appalachian Trail. The trail is unreal, the smell, the sun, the sounds, the ever waiting fear that a bear is going to eat me! It was absolutely amazing.
Shenandoah National Park and the Appalachian Trail: 10/10 would recommend to a friend.
Hey All, As I’ve said in earlier posts, I’m the design and illustration intern for The Sexy Skeptic; a multimedia project which creates an open learning environment to foster skepticism and critical thought about various issues. I’ve been helping the creator, Dylan, with designs for the blog and illustrations for her upcoming workbook “Fostering a Skeptical Mind” Here’s what I’ve gotten myself into thus far
This week I’ve been messing around with a new gouache technique. I had a few scraps of watercolor paper laying around and started creating shapes with the heavily diluted paint. And from the shapes- Blobjects were born!
