Stacy Lewis

February 27, 2012

My friend Stacy Lewis is a wonderful artist and she recently made this work, which I find very beautiful. You can see more of her work here: This Little Art of Mine.

I loved taking public transit in New York when I lived there. Everyone in New York takes the subway or the bus regardless of their socio-economic class. It’s a living breathing organism that the citizens of New York rely on. I observed beautiful, tender moments, violent outbursts, attempts to spread the word of Jesus, Allah and Biggie Smalls. I had conversations with strangers about my life and theirs. I fell in love and out of love countless times on my rides in and out of the city. Sophie Blackall captures the spirit of the MTA riders in her illustrative work entitled ‘Missed Connections’ that is currently on display in the New York subway cars.

Yann Kebbi

I recently became aware of the French illustrator Yann Kebbi and his work is blowing me away. His talent is off the hook. Do yourself a favour and see for yourself.

Infectiously Happy

February 21, 2012

I recently heard about a Canadian artist named Nadia Moss and was looking at some of her work online, it’s really beautiful stuff! I love the way she works with ink in a series that I think she was doing a few years ago . Ethereal and smart! I didn’t realize until a few days ago that I do have some work of hers on my fridge, I didn’t make the connection – it’s an ink drawing in colour that I love looking at everyday and I am happy that it was given to me as a gift.
