Two nicenesses from two artist acquaintances in the past two weeks.
I really like Michael Arthur's. work. He is a friend of friends and showed me his studio last week. He has two excellent op-eds in the New York Times: one on how he came to do what he does, and one on summer in the city. He also performs with Balthrop, Alabama - their site has some great examples of his work. Here's a video he made for Mike Viola:
And I found Austin Kleon's blog while looking for further examples of Joann Sfar's work. I asked Austin for advice on pens and he was kind enough to post in response.
I bought some pens at the weekend. Examples of work with new pens in a couple of posts.
