à la française.

i’m pleased to reveal the cover of my upcoming book, “France: Inspiration du Jour” (chronicle books). this is my next book which is a compilation of sketches and photos that i have taken during my sojourns in france. this book is very close to my heart and feels incredibly revealing, as i had never intended for anyone to see my personal sketchbook (let alone to actually have it published !?) . . .  but i’m very much into stepping out of my comfort zone. this book will be out on may 2nd, but you can pre-order it NOW here. and you can also get a sneak peek of the inside HERE.

little golf pencils will always remind me of my dad. he played golf six days a week for as long as i knew him (on the seventh day, he fished). i remember him leaving trails of these little pencil nubs all around the house. such a fond memory.

i LOVE boro textiles. there was such an abundance of them in tokyo. turns out, the next best thing to buying boro fabrics is SKETCHING them ! so satisfying.

two of my favorite things rolled into one: notebooks + shibori. i found these amazing shibori notebooks at the beautiful shop in tokyo called POSTALCO. we spent a long time there drooling over the goods and i left with many treasures.

i bought these very large sumi brushes at the oedo flea market in tokyo. i’ve been painting with them and can not believe how much INK they hold. painting with them is such a treat.
