i think this leaf i found on my front doorstep was a sign that fall is nearly here…
yup, last official day of summer is tomorrow.

UPDATE: the november class is full, but please email me if you would like to be added to a mailing list for future classes.

i posted here last september about my idea to teach a few classes from my studio, and i’m excited that it’s finally going to happen! i’m moving into a larger space (the top floor of our building), which will be much better for accommodating a group of people.

the first class i’m offering is an introduction to screen printing. i’m going to keep the class small, but if you can’t sign up for the october class, this is a class that i will continue to offer regularly. i’m also excited to be offering some great workshops taught by other designers, and i’ll hopefully announce some of those soon.

below are the details for the october class. if you would like to sign up, please email info@lenacorwin.com.

maria and i are very excited to be launching the fourth volume of lines & shapes today! this volume features the work of an amazing group of artists–
jennifer gotch, jackson, johnston & roe, paul paper, jeana sohn, and jessica williams.

the theme for this book is PAIR:
two identical, similar, or corresponding things that are matched for use together; to match with or resemble another; to form by matching, joining

it’s always thrilling to see what each artist chooses to do for her/his project (not having seen any of the other projects), and then see how they all come together to compliment each other. thanks so much to the artists for collaborting with us on creating such a beautiful book. come see more of lines & shapes here…

a couple images above from brooke hellewell reynold’s great new blog, called inchmark.
brooke is a book designer (and former senior art director for martha stewart), and i’m so grateful that she was the art director/designer for my book. she has such a great eye for design. i’m looking forward to her future posts…

this show, curated by a family friend of mine, looks really cool. opening party tonight.
