Reading Update

The Rubber Stamp Album: The Complete Guide to Making Everything Prettier, Weirder, and Funnier by Joni K Miller & Lowry Thompson. This a really good look at the history of rubber stamp making and using up through 1978, when the book was published. And I enjoyed the glimpse of life in 1978 that it provided – it was a reminder of a time when phone calls were expensive, personal computers were unknown, and the internet was ARPANet. You can pick it up for <$10 used – I recommend going through Better World Books (free worldwide shipping and proceeds benefit literacy).

Linkity didn’t think it was possible to be more appalled, and yet…

Artful Adventures in Mixed Media: Techniques Inspired by Observation and Experience by Nathalie Kalbach. Very good look at different places to find inspiration and how to turn that inspiration into mixed media pieces or art journal entries. There were definitely a couple of new-to-me techniques I’m going to have to try.

Reading Update
The Confident Creative: Drawing to Free the Hand and Mind by Cat Bennett. Ok look at using drawing as a sort of mindfulness meditation. Definitely a book and reader mismatch on this one – I read the whole thing, but I was annoyed at it/about it most of the time. YMMV.
Black Mould (The Rivers of London Graphic Novel #3) by Ben Aaronovitch. Very good continuation of the series in which Peter and Sahra are on the trail of some particularly lively black mould… According to the timeline in the back, this takes place after The Hanging Tree and before The Furthest Station.
Sidney Crosby: One of the NHL’s Top Scorers by Jeanne Nagle. Maybe I can’t rate this fairly, being pretty far out of the target audience (grades 5-8). It seemed kind of disjointed to me. But I did learn some bits of Sidney Crosby trivia I hadn’t known before, which was cool.
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. Excellent young adult fantasy novel about (wait for it) a girl who drank the moon. 😀 Recommended. (And from a Minnesota author!) I’m already on the list at the library for more of her books.

Doodle Art and Lettering with Joanne Sharpe: Inspiration and Techniques for Personal Expression by Joanne Sharpe. What it says in the title. 🙂 I really like Joanne Sharpe’s art journaling style and enjoyed her tips, tricks, and suggestions.
