Product Story

When I was nine a family friend gave me The Nothing Book. I carried it everywhere and this habit became permanent — I am never without my journal. My sketchbooks hold my brain: the galumphing to-do list, jottings, inspiration, places to visit, music to listen to, books to read, movies to see, endless doodles, potential painting titles, dreams and schemes, kids appointments, my calendar, and the rest of the beat.

Pattern Story

Years ago I watched a Chinese opera based on the legend Sun Wukong or the monkey king. The narrative has many twists, but is a tale of adventure and transformation. My version of the monkey king is another favorite. I adapted a famous William Morris wallpaper pattern from a Vand A sourcebook for the background. Watercolor is a fickle and inflexible medium, so painting from an elaborate design with numerous repeats took all of my attention. It also made me appreciate the lyricism embedded in good wallpaper design.
