In 2021, I made a commitment to read more. To keep me on track, I’ve been trying to read on average 3 books a month. I’m cataloging some of the lessons I’m learning from the books I read over at the Inklings Illustrated Blog
, plus check out my shop on Bookshop.org
to see my absolute FAVORITE books of all time, including graphic novels, fantasy, artist biographies, liberation literature, and current research on creativity.
This month’s favorite quote:
Fire and fear, good servants, bad lords.
– Ursula K Le Guin in The Left Hand of Darkness
New skill: Embroidery
It’s so fun to learn a new way to creatively express myself. Embroidery is something I’ve long admired and never tried, until this past month when I picked up a sampler pattern from Etsy
and dove into my collection of embroidery thread. I’ve learned A LOT from trying out this pattern and I’m super excited to learn more and make more!
