i learned a little about weaving the other day and it was fascinating. looms and levers. seems super intricate to make patterns, but the output is nuts. yeaaaaaaaah kelly!
i play with some weaving on my own, but in such a different sense with felt. these fabric weaves and embroideries are fantastic. reminds me of work my mom did when she was in art school.

Charlie Harper got super famous post death. Ain't it always the same deal.... Most people recognize his work from a super famous coffee table book by Todd Oldham "An Illustrated Life"
For those lucky enough to be in San Francisco, an exhibition of original Harper drawings and paintings recently opened at Altman Siegel Gallery, showing until October 31st. The works on show, many small in scale, are original illustrations he produced for publications including Golden Book of Biology (1961), and The Animal Kingdom (1968), and his lifestyle illustrations for the Ford Times Magazine.
i bow my head Mr Harper. though not around anymore, you immensely inspire me still.
(10.21: just saw the show......now i want to doodle geometric birds all day)
