As promised, here are some highlights of my afternoon wandering the Brooklyn Botanic Garden: The bees that live there are the fattest, drunkest, slowest and happiest I think I've ever encountered. The wisteria was lovely but what fascinated me most... Continue reading

I've been going to New York every May for 15 years now. The first 14 of those were spent exhibiting at Surtex. It's where I built the foundation for my art licensing business; it's where I met favorite clients and... Continue reading

If you know me and have had a conversation about working at home any time in the past few years, there's a good chance I've told you this story at least once already. This post is for the rest of... Continue reading

Wow, so there was that. I've been home since Monday but still haven't really come down yet. And haven't unpacked all the way yet, but we won't talk about that right now. The Mart is always an exercise in overwhelmingness.... Continue reading
