maria has just added our fall print set to her shop. this is the final set in our year-long seasonal collaboration. i’m sad to see it end! maria so sweetly said on her blog that she thinks i see things in a special way. i feel just the same way about her! i guess that mutual appreciation makes for good collaborations. i’ve enjoyed working on these so much.

some of my favorite pages from volume five…
here is lines & shapes, volume five!
this volume is special because of its all-swedish group of artists. maria and i have been so inspired by the work of many, many artists from sweden, and we were very excited when elisabeth dunker, camilla engman, karin eriksson, sandra juto, and albert sjöstam all agreed to be involved in volume five. the theme is LIGHT (LJUS in swedish) and it just seemed like the right fit for a swedish issue. i love this volume so much, and i can’t stop flipping through it myself…
more photos soon…
josh’s parents have a beautiful house in northern new hampshire. it’s the house he grew up in, and i think it’s changed very little since he was a kid. it’s filled with great patterns and colors… more photos here.
i’m in maine now, to work on volume six of lines & shapes. wow, the last book of the year!
volume five comes out next wednesday… and it’s a special volume…
a couple things on my mind…
– maria snapped a picture of my lap while we waited for our dinner the night before last, and here it is on 3191.
