September desktop calendar

It’s starting to feel crispy! Are you feeling it?! Once again, time strikes us with a reminder of the changing of the seasons and I am NOT READY! But, I am ready to spend a little more time indoors making stuff. Monica, created a lovely wallpaper for your desktop and phones based on some of her recent thrift stores finds and I, for one, am all about that floral chair. Please and thank you!

September Book Club: How Art Can Make You Happy

How Art Can Make You Happy

How Art Can Make You Happy

September is upon us, readers! Schedules often get busy, so we’ve got a short gem of a book for you to read. But small as it may be, this is a book that has BIG impact. Do you love art, but feel unknowledgeable? Do you want to engage in art somehow, but don’t know where to start? How Art Can Make You Happy by Bridget Watson Payne shares just that and more! Payne unlocks what art can do for you, yes YOU. It can make you feel something, it can help you relate to others, it can bring awareness to the world around us. Follow along with @larsbookclub as we dive into art in a personal, relatable way. It’s a quick yet powerful read! Join us!

Stay tuned for fabulous artwork and questions later in the month! And take a peek at previous months here.

Artist Feature + Artist Interview + Life / Friday, 24 Aug 2018

Illustrator Feature: Victoria Riza

TAles from the Back Row printable posterWe are so thrilled to be featuring Victoria Riza as this month’s illustrator feature. Victoria was my intern many moons ago and it has been such a treat to see her setting out on her artistic path. I loved hearing her insights on how her upbringing and cultural background has influenced her path in the industry. From the get-go, Victoria has wanted to go into fashion illustration so I could think of no one better to illustrate our book of the month than her. If you’ve been reading this month’s book club pick, Tales from the Back Row, you’ve gotten a glimpse of that. Download this month’s book art illustrated by Victoria and take a look at her story, her favorite podcast, and advice on how to overcome setbacks. She’s also sharing the process she used to create the poster she created for us.Victoria Riza fashion illustrator

Tales from the Back Row Book Art

Tales from the back row

Have you enjoyed Tales from the Back Row? A look inside the fashion industry is equally entertaining and perplexing, isn’t it? Odell does a good job at giving the inside scoop while keeping an “outsider’s” point of view. Check out discussion questions below (if you’ve been following us on Insta, maybe you’ve read some of them already!), and further reading suggestions – we read Grace Coddington’s memoir last year and it was fabulous! This month’s awesome artwork is by one of my previous interns, Victoria Riza, who has gone and done some incredible things! We hope you enjoy!
