The Reading List, 3rd Edition

This is continued from a series I just began to document my back-logged “read but don’t remember that well” and “to read” lists, inspired by online groups like Printmaking Professors Network, Printmakers Open Forum, and the infamous Tabs-my-husband-Blake-leaves-open-on-our-computer. You can see all of the posts in this series, here: http://orangebarrelindustries.com/main/category/blog-2/readings/ There is just SO much […]

The Reading List, 2nd Edition

I decided to start keeping track of my rambling reading and to read list on this blog. You can see my first post, here: The Reading List, 1st Edition. An Illustrated Guide to Guy Debord’s ‘The Society of the Spectacle’, “The spectacle can be found on every screen that you look at. It is the […]

I decided to use this blog to share and keep track of some of the art-related articles I’ve been clicking on, reading, or planning to read soon. Some of them I find open in tabs because B. has been reading them. Others come from great Facebook groups like Printmaking Professors Network and Printmakers Open Forum. […]

Recent Collaborations: Working on Working Together

It’s been a long time since I have contributed to this blog aside from snarky comments for Hannah as she diligently keeps up with posting. Hannah says that’s OK because I’m busy ’cause I have a job; I say that’s me being lazy and handing the reigns over to my social media director (her). I’m […]

What do you do when you’re feeling sad and/or bored? Google search for cute animal pictures, of course! Inspired in part by stumbling across Kristyna Baczynski’s work,  those illustrators I was swooning over a few days ago, and the long stream of graphic novels I continue to check out from our public library’s fairly decent collection, […]
