5 Things Inspiring Me This Month: March 2022

Hello friends! Can’t believe March is almost over. Where has the time gone?

I’ve been quiet on social media for the last month keeping busy with personal projects. But I’m excited to finally announce a new workshop I’ll be teaching next month in Southern California! 

I’m partnering with M.Lovewell, a creative and workshop studio in Santa Ana to teach an Illustrated Lettering Workshop on Saturday, April 9th. It’s a 3 hour workshop for students who are looking to spice up their lettering skills by incorporating illustrations which is a topic I’m super passionate about.

If you’d like more details check out this link and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions! 

1. ARTIST: Yoskay Yamamoto

Yoskay is a Japanese Arizona-based mixed media artist. He draws inspiration from nature and space, and his artwork has a magical way of instantly making you feel at peace. His work has been showcased at many places including Giant Robot in LA and the Facebook campus where I used to work. 

Check out his work here.

2. ARTICLE: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

This article on the Farnam Street blog talks about how great ideas are always influenced by what’s been done in the past, and rarely do they come out of thin air. It’s a good reminder to stay curious and continue exposing yourself to old work because you never know when inspiration will strike.

3. BOOK: More Myself

’ve been on an Alicia Keys binge and recently read her autobiography. The book captures the struggles she overcame to find her voice and a lot of her experiences felt relatable. The parts I enjoyed most were when she shared the process and key moments behind her albums like Songs in A Minor and Girl on Fire.

Check out the book here.

4. SMALL BUSINESS: Newspaper Club

Newspaper Club is a printing studio based in London that lets you print newspapers of all shapes and sizes. I recently used their service to print my workshop booklets and love the way they showcase inspiring samples and tips on their blog. If you love anything print, be sure to check them out.

5. VIDEO: Everything’s a Canvas w/Emily Eisenhart

Emily Eisenhart is an Austin-based artist/designer who creates gorgeous, colorful murals for Madewell, Starbucks, and many notable brands. In this talk, she shares how she blends her background in design at IDEO and her love for nature to create art, and how she applies her ideas to all types of canvases.
