Kid’s Art Camp in India: A Report

🌍🌎🌏 HELLO BEAUTIES! SKETCHING HAS NOT AGE AND NO NATIONALITY.

Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook

A couple of months ago, I put out a call asking for donations of supplies for an urban sketching camp I wanted to run for the kids in a village in India. So many of you responded, and I had lots of supplies to take with me. A big, big thank you to my family of artists (and art stores) in the area that sent in supplies. Here is the report I promised you. It’s longish, but I guarantee it will put a smile on your face. (And if you knew nothing about the project so far, you might still like this post).

Nargolwadi is a little hamlet in the Deogad district of Maharashtra, India where my family has a small mango farm. Most of the inhabitants of the village work as day labor on the farms in the area and tend small…

This is the illustration for the August page on my birthday calendar.  It’s an older one but still pretty close to my IRL beach/picnic look today.

Japanese Dress Y

💙 HELLO DEARS! IN MY OPINION, THE FABRICS AND DESIGN OF THIS DRESS ARE SIMPLY ADORABLE!

Sewing Myself Stylish

I have now become a big fan of Japanese pattern books. I bought my first book, Simple Modern Sewing, on sale, with a gift card, and as a skeptic. After two big wins from that book, I was compelled to buy another one, Stylish Dress Book, Wear with Freedom by Yoshiko Tsukiori. For Fresh Make #27 I chose a loose fitting, easy wear dress. Perfect for the hot summer that’s just around the corner.

While the decision wasn’t easy from the 26 patterns, I chose Dress Y. Mainly because I wanted a pattern that combined two fabrics, and also the construction didn’t look to fussy.

This book has 26 adorable patterns to choose from. This book has 26 adorable patterns to choose from.

Here's Dress Y. Those are the complete instructions! More on that later. Here’s Dress Y. Those are the complete instructions! More on that later.

“ESCAPING FROM HIS CLAWS”💡HELLO SISTERS ! SOMETIMES MIXED MEDIA CAN BE A GOOD WAY TO EXPRESS A IDEA OR A FACT. ¡BUENA PUBLICACIÓN, LOLI! 😉

Comienzo de 0

Me gustaría presentaros una maravillosa mujer, más allá de su forma de ser –por su ocupación laboral. Veréis, ella es… de esa clase de personas que suelen pasar desapercibidas, ella es… de ese tipo de personas que no vemos en los medios; ella es de las que nadie habla y siempre se echa de menos.
.
Desempeña un cargo importante en un departamento importante, pasa muchas horas en la oficina, dedicando la mayor parte de ellas al teléfono. Intenta con todas sus fuerzas que prime la ley y la razón —no del más fuerte, precisamente. Su mesa de trabajo, extensa, siempre llena de notas: urgencias, plazos, anti-presa de la costumbre, papeles con la mayoría solo ”números” en definitiva. Aunque, deberíais ver: pulcritud, orden, por aquí y allá flores (…)
Otra faceta la desempeña visitando y –sobre todo estando/hablando con personas, víctimas todas y  tantas…

Luciana Riommi e David Salle, con David Behrman

🎨 HELLO DEARS! ABSTRACTION MORE, OR ABSTRACTION LESS. THIS IS THE QUESTION 📑😁

vengodalmare

visto dal vero

non passa niente da fessure d’ombra
per quante parole presti alla mimesi
la cosa che, manco a dirlo, sembra un’emozione
e chissà cos’è dal vero.
in ogni modo, sempre di storie piccole si tratta,
che se ne parla a fare?
minime storie insoddisfatte
e tutti senza pace
pronti a sgranare inutilmente gli occhi:
vedi? non vedi?
vado? e dove andare?
cosa inventare?
se neanche sai cos’è che si dovrebbe soddisfare.
e tutti gli anni di abbandono
quelli serviti a te
nel tempo personale
per far cadere un’ultima illusione
tra gli artefici dell’animazione.

ma il cancro di che colore è, visto dal vero?
ci pensavo ieri,
mentre ancora trattavo il prezzo di una rosa, rossa, dal fioraio.

Luciana Riommi
