Did you check out all the looks at the Met Gala? I’m wondering why everyone didn’t wear Chromat for ManusxMachina- Fashion in an Age of Technology.
I felt like whipping up an illustration this morning in homage to Becca McCharen’s amazing work that’s inspired by architecture, urban design and structural experiments for the human body. So innovative and boundary pushing. I loved that the models on the NYFW runway weren’t all rail thin and white.
How refreshing!

Pink Olive: Olive Box

I feel so much love from Pink Olive. Not only did they host a lovely meet + greet for A Mother is a Story, they also included it in their latest Olive Box.

In case you don’t already know, OliveBox is a monthly subscription service for paper lovers. Every month, members receive a delightful box of paper & lifestyle products delivered to their front door. When customers sign up for OliveBox, they will not only be giving this gift to themselves, but they will be receiving something they can gift forward. The idea behind OliveBox was born out of love for creative finds by Grace Kang, former buyer of Bloomingdale’s and Barneys and founder of popular Pink Olive gift boutique in NYC.

“This month’s OliveBox is a truly special ode to moms and Mother Nature alike, including two limited edition products made just for you as our subscriber. Here’s a look at what’s inside:

  • In A Mother Is A Story (published by Abrams), artist and author Samantha Hahn’s lush watercolor illustrations pair perfectly with hand-lettered quotes about the joys, challenges, and blessings of motherhood. The wise and whimsical tome makes a perfect present for mom, intended to be treasured for years.
  • We also worked with Samantha to bring you an exclusive art print, just for OliveBox members, based on one of our favorite pages from the book.”
