People I Undeservedly Get to Know For Real
Yay Sockpuppet!– featuring the art of a talented lady who makes me almost pee my pants on a daily basis.
Cody Heichel – also known as the ‘watercolor master’ at Open Door. Seriously, this guy rocks.
Open Door Art Studio – this is where I spend 40+ hours of my week. These are the people I see regularly. And it’s my job. This fact alone is beautiful.
you are awesome ^_^ – ‘a collection of neatness brought to you by Kifer’. If you like any of the following: puppies, beautiful things, art, math, science, SCIENCE, other cute animals, human rights, unexpected things- then you will enjoy it.
While You Wait for the Bread to Bake – My friend Laura’s blog- regularly updated with awesome art, photography, style, CAT PHOTOS! basically, if this chick lived in Columbus I would bother her to hang out all the time.
Thanks and Sorry – photos by Amelia Morris. Although I didn’t talk to Amelia much when we were both at school, her work is some I’ve always admired.
Sarah LaBarge – another classmate of whom I was in awe, with whom I was way too shy when we were in classes together. Brilliant writer, brilliant artist. Thank goodness for the internet to bridge geological gaps (and social ineptitude)
Jacinda Russell and Hannah Barnes – have you ever had a professor that taught you a lot, not just in school, but through their own artmaking and who had great taste in books and who made you think “man, I wish we were friends.”? I was disgustingly lucky enough to have two of them.
Art Club – Want three mind-blowing artist brains for the price of one artist-collective? Win. Until you have pie-eating contests at your show opening, you’re probably not as cool as Art Club.
Kenay Kash – making art more fun and potentially uncomfortable on the regular. I was a huge admirer of Kenay’s work before I even knew it was his.
Museum 2.0 – Have you joined the Nina Simon fanclub yet? (Even though we’ve only had two exchanges- one at a question/answer session after a talk she gave and one via email re: how to draw in museum visitors, I still count this as knowing. Mostly because I want to.)
[insert here all the lovely people who don’t have websites but who still make my life awesome. Awesome.]
