Contemporary Muslim Fashions

I went and saw the show Contemporary Muslim Fashions at the De Young Museum the other day, and it was a thing of exquisite beauty. I always love a good fashion museum show, but this was one especially stirring -- showcasing as it did the vast range, amazing creativity, and utter good old fabulousness of fashion design in the Muslim world.

Color Poem #66

a coppery bronze chestnut leather
bisected by a hot pink neon stripe

with hold-the-phone lavender letters
edged in an oceanic shimmery green

Handcraft Studio School

It's always such a delight to teach at Handcraft Studio School! I did a Publishing for Creatives workshop last weekend and we had a full house of the most engaged and creative students. Not to mention the space is just so darn cute!
