It’s been a long while since I posted- I’m actually concentrating on ceramics these days- if you get a chance, please check out my site– my new little company called Miro Made This

But anyway, in the meantime, I wanted to introduce a friend that you’d probably like, because Pete‘s aesthetic is a little like that of my cards- bright and modern, with kind of the same audience appeal, except much more clever… It’s actually a project that my sister, Mimi, and her friends Sean and Pete are working on together- and they need your help to make their book a reality! They’ve got a kickstarter campaign going- please check it out- there’s a stop animation video that’s just AWESOME. And please tell your friends too! Thanks!

I found this list a few months ago- although I’m not sure anymore how or where I found it- one of those things that happens when you follow link after link after link… Anyway, it’s a list of 10 principles that “may make your work better or may make it worse” by Frank Chimero, “a graphic designer, illustrator, teacher, writer + creative person”, based in Portland, Oregon. I think his list, and his stuff, especially the writing is terrific. Check out his blog when you get a chance.
