Here are a few things on my radar right now:
1. Is Mending the New Shopping? via Surface Design Association eNews
2. Angela Holland's collages!
3. Design Matters Podcast with illustrator extraordinaire Maira Kalman.
4. I just finished reading Ray Bradbury's semi-autobiographical novel Dandelion Wine (because of Sandra Brownlee's textile that I photographed in May 2014). It's a book about twelve-year old Douglas Spaulding's summer of 1928 when he woke up to the world around him. Basically, it's a book about wonder, awareness, and taking notice.
