Good morning you lovelies, you! I'm in the best mood this morning. Partially because I just got back from a week long visit in Louisiana with my sister & our family there for her wedding (Yay!) The wedding was beautiful, and I really like my new brother-in-law. He's been pretty much in the family for awhile now, they just made it official. AND some pretty cool mail was waiting for me when I got back!
A chunky mailing tube came from Jeral & Sarah Tidwell in Kentucky (more about that in a second), and letters from new penpals! I enjoyed reading them so much!! And will be writing back this week. I nearly forgot how wonderful real, personal letters can be. And it's so secret & private. I think I'm so used to writing online that I lost touch with how genuine a paper letter allows you comfortably be. I like it a lot. So if you want to swap snail mail, contact me for my p.o. box address, and I will write you back. I'm incredibly grateful my art attracts such wonderful people! I tip my hat to you because you all are some of the kindest, warmest, and most generous- hearted people I've come across. And I am thankful you want to have anything to do with me at all. This wouldn't be near as much fun by myself. Merci beaucoup!
So! The Skateboard Art Project: This is artist Jeral Tidwell's baby. He's invited all his artist friends to create art that Landyachtz Longboards may choose to license for new skateboards. And there's a rumor of an art book in the near future too. I took a peek at the publisher, and it's a pretty cool rumor! But I don't want to get too excited yet (I can wait for confirmations), but it's pretty exciting and I'm happy I get to participate. This is looking like a really good opportunity to meet and talk to lots of other arts people all over the U.S. I'm making connections with a few already, and I'm definitely feeling like a small fish. I've got my work cut out for me it I wanna make the cut.
I'll try to be better about updating my blog more regularly. There's just so much to do everyday that it gets tricky to squish everything in. But I will try. Thanks for coming to see what I'm up to! Hoping this finds you well, and have a great day!
