Geoff has been busy working on some new drawings which we hope to incorporate into some new items for Little Winter. Some of us work best under pressure, it's true.
I love his drawing style. He's a skilled draftsman, but has an ability to render his subjects in a delicate, beautiful way. I call him my in-house illustrator (har har).
This summer our friends Ryan and Michelle eloped and had a party to celebrate in September. As a little gift, Geoff drew a picture of their dog Ada (short for "Adventure") for them. A dog drawing in the repertoire! He can draw things that aren't animals, of course.
Geoff draws a lot of inspiration from his tumblr, which is a particularly good one.
kenzie: I know, it's so crazy! We've been thinking about it for so long I can't even believe it's happening so soon. Good luck with your preparation!
Rebekka Seale: Actually, I picked these paint chips once I had the idea of what I wanted! I just happened to be at Home Depot running errands. I'm glad you like them!
Jane Flanagan: Oh yes, the stars are definitely trying to tell you something! Once I saw the word 'frolic' in there I knew it was a sure thing. I wish I could mash all my favourite places together so they could be closer. That would be just great!
m.bardeaux: Ha, that is so weird! I wish I could drop "I'm going to the opera" into casual conversation. So classy! Can't wait to see you!
Anonymous: I will, glad you like!
Charlyn W: We probably will! Ooh, pillowcases, that could be fun!
Neon Relish: Ha! Feel free to use the Mary Timony idea! Thank you, wish you could be there!
Jess: Thank you! If we manage to make enough cash to order more supplies, we will!
Chelsea: Ha, thanks!
Jessica: Not at the moment, but I'm hoping to put them online once we've made some more.
Anonymous: When I was in journalism school, the National Post was starting up. There was an interview with one of the editors published somewhere, and he made a point of saying he would never hire anyone straight out of journalism school, that it was more important to travel and live. It was a brutal thing to hear but it made me realize that once I had graduated at the tender age of 22 or whatever, I wouldn't really know that much at all. I got out as fast as I could. Plus interviewing people was incredibly difficult and I didn't enjoy it.
Johanna Lu: That's funny! I went to library school and didn't enjoy that either! I guess I just don't like ANYTHING, haha!
Hetterson: Oh lady, don't you worry! Maybe this post makes it seem like I spent hours on my display when really I am not going to at all. Whatever you come up with will be amazing, I know it!
Chelsea: Aw, yay! Thanks!
Kate: Wish you could, that would be so great! My tote collection is out of control, too. But they're so useful!
Darcy: I hope so! I need to sell the ones I have in order to get more supplies... fingers crossed! Thank you!
Clouds: Thank you!
Sarah: I hope to sell them online later, when I get more supplies! It would be cool to have them in a shop, but I'll have to see about that. I'm glad you like it!
amy: Yes! Sparkle! Thank you!
Hello Lindello: Thank you! I hope to, yes...! I'm loving this response!
danica: I hope to! Thanks so much!
hila: I love people who love Kate Bush. It's a real feeling of kinship! I hope to sell them online, yes!
white mice: I think records would, yes! They're 13" wide. Yes, Hounds of Love, too good!
claraemily: Aw, I hope to! Thanks!
