John Hendrix Below is a list of random things I overheard or read and wrote down in large text in this red graph paper sketchbook I’ve been working in. They all feel significant to me for some reason. Most of them have drawings beside them and function as sort of captions. They probably don’t mean […]

I’ve been busily working on our Etsy shop these past couple of weeks. Blake has started back to school (as of Monday.)

I haven’t been keeping on a great schedule for these since we returned for our travels. Instead, Blake and I were working hard to finish up our blocks for Cannonball Press (we got them shipped out on Saturday!) Blake’s looks AMAZING. Mine was awesome, but not my most awesome, so I am hoping they ask […]

No, that’s not Dame┬áJulie Andrews, it’s her doppleganger, Mrs. Charlotte Eisel. Mrs. Eisel was one of my English teachers at Central High School. For weeks now, she has been “patiently waiting” for her portrait as a part of my Facebook Profile Pictures Project. She also requested that I “make her beautiful.” No effort required, Mrs. […]
