Print Crush

I have a serious crush on the work of Two Arms, Inc. A print power couple working and living in Brooklyn; Karen and Michael are fellow Floridians that I have kept in touch with over the years and I truly admire their work and love to keep up with what they're working on. Below are some of my more recent favorites prints.

Make sure to check out their website and peruse the blog, galleries, and shop.

Let's be pen pals


I love sending handwritten letters and just signed up to receive one from Illustrator Mary Kate McDevitt. Her plan is to write one a day, and it's simple to sign up to receive one, just visit her Tumblr here.

Right now I only have a few pen pals, but if you would like to do a letter exchange with me, send me an email at heartless.arts@gmail.com

Comics!


One of my favorite web comics is by Liz Prince. She loves pop punk and has a unique way of presenting everyday situations. Check out her site here! If you like her stuff, make sure to buy some comics/books, I have!

Also a quick reminder, my Etsy shop will be on vacation starting tomorrow. Do some shopping now!

Undecided

I have so much trouble deciding if a piece is done or not. Thoughts on this anyone?

CPL Rules


Picked this up at the library yesterday. I've been having a bit of an artists block lately but have been reading a ton. I've never been to Europe and last week I started to get kinda obsessed with going to Holland (ironic I know...those who know me will get that). I would love to plan a trip in the next year or so, I hope I can save my pennies to make this happen! Here's the link to the book on Amazon if you're interested, or check your local library!

Fest 10


In one week I'll be flying to Florida to go hangout in Orlando and to go to Fest 10 in Gainesville! The Fest artwork and branding is always solid thanks to Black Axe Design and Horsebites. I'm a big fan of all their work and like to keep up with what they're doing.

Buttons!



I have a weird obsession with buttons, and these are definitely some of the most unique one's I've seen. Check them out here. I stumbled across these in a post from one of my favorite blogs, Button Candy!

Again

Computer-less again, but only till about the end of the week while it's being fixed. Thank goodness for time to blog at work...

Here's some other places to find me on the interwebs if you feel so inclined:
Twitter
Flickr
Heartless Arts on Facebook

The Milwaukee Avenue Arts Fest was a blast! So many great exhibits and we had a good turn out for the photography show. I've curated twice this year and look forward to working on more projects. I'm thinking my next move is to focus on making more work and trying to get a show somewhere for Fall/Winter.

Friday, July 22, 2011


Soon I'll be staying for a few days in a neighborhood right next to the lovely Mt. Charleston in Northwest Las Vegas and causing various kinds of trouble in and around Las Vegas. The Etsy shop is on vacation till I am back! So make sure to start your shopping again on July 27th. Tomorrow before my flight we are hanging the photography show that I am curating for the Milwaukee Ave Arts Fest. I am very excited to see all the photos up on the wall at Crown Liquors (I love that my exhibit is in a bar).

Have a great weekend!

Collecting

Is collecting plates an old lady thing? If so, I'm going to be the coolest old person one day. I got a new plate this weekend so I thought I would share my small collection. I have another one in the basement somewhere but not quite sure where!

NEW NEW!

Listed some paintings in the Etsy shop! I wish I could afford a new camera, these photos don't do the pieces justice. Oh well, I work with what I got.

Feedback

Now that I have a computer again, I'm hoping to do more blogging. I started this to keep my friend Sarah updated on art projects I was working on after I moved to Chicago, and ended up realizing that if I didn't update it meant I was slacking on projects and needed to get to work. It's a nice way to keep myself on track.

I wanted to get some feedback and see what people would like to see on here. Work in progress photos? Tutorials? Nerdy art rants? Let me know in the comments! What type of posts do you like the best?

Currently Reading


Currently reading Vonnegut. One of the benefits of living somewhere where past roommates left piles of books is the ones that no one could come back for are now mine.

The sale in my Etsy shop is over, dudes and dudettes. I have more mini paintings to post soon so keep checking here for updates!

My jewelry is available still at Lenny & Me in Wicker Park and very soon you will be able to pick up my stationary and bookmarks at Wolfbait and B-girls in Logan Square! I am dropping off the merchandise tonight. Very excited to be selling there, it's a great shop that only sells handmade items by Chicago artists and crafters.

Consumerism!




ZINE! BUY ME!

So I am still without a computer at home a month after the break-in (luckily I can fart around the internet at work). I have been meaning to post my zine for sale on Etsy but that’s a bit much to work on whilst at the ol’ job. BUT- if you are interested in purchasing my sketchbook zine titled “Day Job” I am gonna see how that goes then try to distribute at shops around Chicago and list on my Etsy. $2 +$1.50 shipping (in the US of A) = $3.50 for this handsome hunk of toner ink.

If you are interested in purchasing email heartless.arts@gmail.com

XOXOX

Night Owl



Next Tuesday! Come on out, have a drink or two, and check out work from local artists. I'll be there with my art zine and some smaller pieces on display. Come say hi and buy me a redbull, I'm old and this goes past my bedtime (10pm-1:30am).
