Stop, just…stop talking. I’m getting an aneurysm just anticipating the stupid you’re about to propose.

I am absolutely THRILLED to pieces that the amazing Jennifer Tolo Pierce asked me to participate in the new Design School Wisdom book published by Chronicle! So this year I was floored to realize that I have been teaching for 10 years at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. (Where I went to school!!) I’m really proud of all of my awesome students, what they’ve done over the years, and the community of amazing people that I’ve met while there! It’s been great being a teacher — one of the best things about it is helping people out wherever I can and trying to make the art world a little easier to access.

I am totally flattered that they’ve included me in this book and totally stand by everything I said! Hooray!!

I only had one class with Lindsay Nohl but that was one that just stuck with me in the most positive way imaginable. She just had a knack at pushing the best out of her students. She’s wonderfully optimistic; I mean, she had the authority of a teacher, but her approach to it was like if you were talking to a friend at a real big art jam. She was just that down to earth and personable and just…so friggin’ encouraging! Her course took me out of my comfort zone a lot, but my gosh it was so worth it. Like, a bajillion times worth it lol! She’s awesome and I’m so stoked to see that she’s in this book, and I’m totally running to nearest bookstore to grab myself a copy! Many many congrats Lindsay!!!!

I finally have a bit of time to work on this piece. This is just another close up, I’m just working on sections bit by bit. I don’t really wanna rush any of it. Not sure if Anna’s lip color is too dark or not…

Going through some earlier sketches of a project and thought to share a tidbit of one of them. I love playing with body language. It’s so much fun to demonstrate a relationship without a word!
