Goals, Resolutions? How about Being Present?

The post is my attitude on goals and resolutions.


Helvetica: A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit

I don't know how I missed this film when it was shown at the Walker (well actually I miss a lot of things so that's wishful thinking). Happily Helvetica A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit was shown on PBS the other night on an episode of Independent Lens.

I watched it twice yesterday! (It's only an hour long.) It's a great tribute to a font that is a ubiquitous part of our visual landscape.


Happy 2009! (One Day Early)


Above: An "eraser" carving I made from one of my Daily Dot drawings, January 1, 2008, 4 x 6 inches on Folio paper.

I'm posting this on the last day of the 2008 because I want to share my New Year's Day Ritual with you, in the hope that you might be convinced to try it too.

A very wise artist friend told me years ago that she tried to do a little bit of everything she loved on New Year's Day. This set her intention for doing those things repeatedly throughout the year.


TypeFace: A Film about Woodtype

filmmaker's website.

On Thursday night, in the sold out Walker Art Center theater I watched a lovely, moving, and inspiring film about woodtype, the process of letterpress printing and its current resurgence among artists and designers, and the Hamilton Woodtype Museum.


Emerging Artists


Above, emerging artist Rachel Nusbaum and her proud father Steve, stand in front of some of the prints and book projects Rachel has on display for her junior year portfolio review at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Right now it's portfolio review time for juniors at MCAD (Minneapolis College of Art and Design). The students are assigned a bit of space in the halls and they put up a mini-exhibit of art. It varies widely based on their majors. Some students might have paintings, some have sculpture. I saw one student's furniture designs. (I didn't realize that MCAD even had a furniture design program.)
