quick news: since it's been crickets around here lately, I've decided to just shut it down. I'm in the process of making a portfolio website, and there's no way I'll stop using my instagram or twitter anytime soon so you can always check on me there! peace out blog friends! Continue reading

A number of positive things about my year, in no particular order. Going to pick up a book from the reserve shelf at the library and thinking of all the joy that will be felt by my fellow book nerds picking up their little gifts Some songs I listened to... Continue reading

Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler (not providing a link because I don’t want to endorse it in any way) must have had an amazing marketing team. I encountered it constantly this summer/early fall: I saw it on blogs, Instagram feeds, and featured at a few bookstores. So when I saw it... Continue reading

I'm an admittedly lazy member of the Get Messy art journal community, but of course I had to do something for the past few month's Season of Dreams. My nighttime dreams are vivid and fascinating to me, and who doesn't have real life dreams too? My pages are sometimes based... Continue reading

I've posted this technique before & also showed some of this on my instagram but wanted to share a few more "behind the scenes"/process of my cut up collages. The original collage. I usually start these on scraps of paper so it's not a traditional size, maybe around 8"x10" though?... Continue reading

Hey! I'm excited to share this project with you. There's nothing better than an idea that just comes about organically and without a lot of forethought and turns out to be exactly what you needed. A few weeks ago I was interviewed, along with Lauren Caterson, for Caylee and Lauren's... Continue reading

(continued from this post... this one's more tourist-y and picture heavy) Even though I only had about 8 non-working or sleeping hours to fill in Nashville, I crammed in about as much as I could and saw a fair bit of the city. Friday night I walked around the neighborhood... Continue reading

a flight that was delayed, then un-delayed, then delayed again for some reason? okay! Here is the story of my trip to Nashville to film the video parts of my Studio Calico art journalling class Cut and Paste. (which is almost over with and has been so great, but that’s... Continue reading

HELLO I HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS. Okay, maybe you've seen this on my various social media outlets, but I wanted to post a bit more about my upcoming art journalling class: Cut and Paste, with Studio Calico. My friends, I could not be more excited and honored to be sharing... Continue reading

some observations on July's themes: distinct palette shift from warm to cool; quotes with little scrappy patchwork borders, fixation on that starburst/fat asterisk shape. I think I'm close to completing the 100 day challenge I set for myself; it has been SO eye-opening about how my art changes when I'm... Continue reading

hey Julia! thank you so much for your nice comment. my hope was to start blogging more often but obviously it's still pretty sparse. maybe when the kids are both in school this fall I'll be able to share more.
thanks Roni! I just can't help myself with leaving paper hanging over the edge of the page. I love the way it looks when the book is finished to have all kinds of bits and pieces showing.
I pulled these colors together a few days ago and have been making collages from just these scraps for the past few days. I only document some of my work on my instagram (project hashtag #katies100daysofcutandpaste); not every collage is a winner and sometimes I'm working out a new idea... Continue reading

Even though it was more than a month ago, I still want to post a recap of my first zine fest! Chicago Zine Fest was held this year at the Plumbers Union hall in the Near West neighborhood. It was a really nice venue & the event ran super smoothly... Continue reading

I was going through some old blog drafts and can't believe I've never shared this collaborative collage book that Natalie Mutrux and I made a few years ago. (She has one too, which she turned into a zine, and once I track my copy down I'll try to share it... Continue reading

I just want to draw these forever and ever. AND I'm starting to color them digitally too. This is an in-progress version, though I have to say I kind of like leaving some of the doodles white. Continue reading

ah, I love it there so much. the colors and the scents and the amazingly fresh air. also, if you're ever looking for new shapes to draw, the conservatory is a treasure trove. Continue reading

amazingly thorough and well written post! I'll definitely bookmark this for the next time I'm doing a major painting project. thanks Josh!
Thanks for that link. Eddie and Emma are two of my favorite actors right now too! It's nice to hear this perspective from you. I'm currently in the exact opposite situation, living in the same place for almost 10 years, the longest I've lived anywhere, and at my current "job" (stay at home mom) for almost 4 years, the longest I've ever stayed in a job. And lately I've just been feeling bored and restless and wondering what might be next. So yes, you're right. There's highs and lows with everything.

oh man. I remember the olden days of Paper Source when they actually had a really big selection of binding materials, beautiful book cloth and book blocks. Kinda bummed that it got replaced with a bunch of tchotchkes. lately I've revived my old high school habit of writing terrible poetry, so that's what I would put in a handbound book... for no one to see ever. :)
