Turkey sandwich, anyone?

  • Rust is beautiful.
  • Who knew squirrels were so photogenic?
  • Artist turns very plain buildings into works of art with her wildflower murals.
  • Beautiful zentangles.
  • Ten things every writer needs.
  • Incredibly detailed drawings.
  • If you’re as old as me, perhaps you’re discouraged that the ideal of the American dream that we grew up with has degenerated into nightmare capitalism, where the rich grow richer and everyone else grows poorer. It’s time for a reset. I am so looking forward to reading this new book and hopeful for a new direction for our country and the world.
  • Monoprinting tutorial. I’ve never done this. I would have to buy supplies. Maybe I will someday. Or I could request this stuff from Santa. . .
  • Where do quilters get their ideas?
  • If you love Zentangle, you might like this Instagram page.
  • Sketching around the ‘hood.
  • Something for the Post-Pandemic Bucket List (see ARHtistic License tomorrow for more): a trip to Singapore, even if you don’t leave the Jewel Changi Airport.

Beautiful things to look at, and ideas that will help you boost your own creativity.

  • Sculptures made from discarded metal.
  • Murals that incorporate their surroundings.
  • A clue may shed light on Vincent Van Gogh’s last days.
  • The hundred best books of the last twenty years. I’ve read maybe ten of these; they were all good except for one which I can’t remember. One more is in my TBR pile. Most of these I’ve never even heard of.
  • I love this artist’s Instagram page.
  • Rebellious nuns.
  • Are you living the dream? Why not?
  • A little city of zentangled architecture.
  • Free summer-themed quilt patterns.
  • Wonderful photos of scenes in Saigon—and each one includes at least one motorbike.
  • I have long loved Grant Snider’s Incidental Comics. This article explains his process for a recent book cover he illustrated.
  • Admit it—you’ve been thinking about starting your own podcast. How hard is it, really? Read this article to find out.
