A dear family friend is turning 90 and we are celebrating her birthday in San Francisco today. I illustrated this poem by William Blake, one of her favorites. I thought it would look nice aged so I used paper dyed with tea and walnut ink for the writing.
In the last couple of days, I've been making wood stands for my desktop calendars. My friend Chris, of Patton Design, generously lent me his time and skill to make these great stands. I've been sanding them down and will seal them today. I'm super excited to get these out to customers. If you want to order one, you can get them here.
I'm sketching portraits for the last of my holiday orders right now. It's getting close to that time. I've had a few secret projects in the works too. More on that later.
