Come learn to needle felt with me at the contemporary textile co-op. Its fun and relaxing and easy to do! We will go through a few projects together and you can walk away and needle felt to your heart's content! You can also take my felting class next month and then you'll know all the basics to felt making both wet and dry!

These are some fancy pins that I've made in the past and I'm working on a new batch to put out there. I'm also trying out some new designs so we'll see what happens and look forward to a bunch more textile and illustration stuff to be coming in the future. I was on a bit of a hiatus but I'm back... lets see how long I can remember to keep going! haha!

Here is an image of one of my favorite male textile artists Mark Newport. I feel really connected to the type of work that he does. His knitted super hero costumes really evoke a sense of nostalgia and comfort. I am glad to see this kind of work circulating and being taken seriously as art. You can see more of his images here. Tell me what you think.
I am going to try and do more posts about male textile artists here because I think it is important to stay united. I have come to realize that penetrating this female dominated craft is going to be harder than I thought it would be.

Here is a quick mock up from one of my illustrations for an idea I think I'm going to be working on. I forgot how fun it is to use photoshop. I have to relearn so much stuff because I forgot everything (which is not much) I know. Youtube has been great for tutorials and getting me familiar with the program again. What do you think?
