inspiration

Along with getting back to making things in my kitchen, I’ve also been trying to ramp up my work on Remedy Quarterly. Before Claire was born, I’d planned to take a few months off and still get Issue 13 out early this summer—I collected the content ahead of time and was just about begin laying things out when, well, you know what happened next.

I finally feel like I’m able to spare some time to work on the magazine and you guys, it’s super exciting! I’m squeezing in an hour here and there while Claire snoozes, but it feels really good. I’ve got a growing graphic inspiration page over on Pinterest where I collect things that I find inspiring—typography, color, form, you name it. I’ve also been taking a lot of walks, admiring the crazy botanicals, colorful houses, and hand-painted signs here in San Francisco. I can’t wait to see how this issue unfolds.

How do you get inspired? I’d love to hear!

    My son is almost 3 months, so I am also a naptime creative. It definitely feels good to have some time to work on projects and I think that might be inspiration enough for me right now.

    I’m so glad things have settled down for you and your family. And yay!–I’m looking forward to the next issue of Remedy. When I’m in a creative funk I usually go for a walk. Or if I’m feeling negative I try to turn it around and make the situation funny, once something’s funny I’m more motivated.
