I just had to share these amazing finds that I got in a Clarendon Hills antique shop this weekend! I collect things like this and use them as inspiration for my work, I'm excited to have a new batch of source material!

Whoops, life happened and I am not posting my bi-weekly Creative Types today. I've been sick for over a week (finally made a Dr. appointment) and it's been throwing me off. Sometimes I get small bursts of energy and sometimes I just want to lay around and rest up by reading or catching up on Netflix. I have a TON on my to-do list and not much is getting done. Being sick combined with apartment stresses like a backed up pipe overflowing our kitchen sink and a roomie deciding he's going to sublet and not giving him/us much time to pick out a new roomie are also stress inducers that don't help me get much done.
SO, I'm working on getting a few more interviews lined up and I'll have some fun posts for you next week or the week after for Creative Types.
Thanks for reading!

I am totally crushing on Nicole J. Georges work after reading her graphic memoir Calling Dr Laura. It's honest, beautifully drawn and the lay out is perfection. This books details Nicole growing up being told her father is dead and then as an adult finding out her father was actually alive. She goes through family and personal drama and doesn't hold back, letting us in to her life. It's always inspiring to see a creative woman doing what she loves and making a name for herself. So glad I had this book to read on a crappy sick day at home!
