Happy February

February 01, 2012 3 Comments

Time to change the calendar! This month's illustration is inspired by a beautiful cashmere look by Michael Koors and of course by my love of artfully arranged bookshelves. Or, rather I should say, by my hatred of formula-induced bookshelves. You know, when you walk into someones home and the book shelves are scattered with African artifacts that bring out the browns in the carpet (even though they've never been to Africa) and entire volumes of books that you sense are there simply for color (not because the owner has read them). That is the worst. It takes years to create a real, living bookshelf filed with beloved artifacts - kind of like a good pinterest board. These sort of records of one's life don't happen over night. Ok, Happy February!
