Learning by Heart

I just got this book in the mail about the teachings of Sister Corita Kent. She's my favorite graphic designing nun from the sixties.

"Not all of us are painters, but we are all artists"

It's been super hard having a job where you have to be creative 8 hours a day. Sometimes I fill my creative downtime with searching blogs and magazines for new ideas when in reality I need to shut off, walk around, be by myself and sketch. Sometimes I wish I could be alone while experimenting.

you dont know me.. but i think you are great.. i happened upon your blog when i was searching for a davinci quote a year ago, and ever since then ive been dropping by to see what thoughtful or interesting thing you have been up to. you are quite inspiring.. i hope you know that.
i wanted to let you know that..but lacked the courage to send you a creepy internet comment..but after your last post i had to.
i work at the corita art center in los angeles! i am currently working on re relasing learning by heart with jan steward. Im so happy you enjoy the book!

I think that was officially the nicest blog comment in the history of nice blog comments. It's crazy to think about the people who stumble upon my blog and are loosely entwined in my life without me knowing. I'm glad you enjoy the little things I write about or am finding interesting. I think it's amazing that you work for such an awesome organization! Please feel free to e-mail me. You sound great, and thank you so so so so so much for your amazing compliments. You seriously made my year.
