A couple of months ago I got an email from Brittany asking me about the DIS Textile Design Program that I did two summers ago. I’ve been following her blog ever since and it looks like she finally arrived in Copenhagen and I am excited to relive Copenhagen and DIS all over again vicariously through her blog!

Speaking of blogs I stumbled upon this one this morning while through flickr. All of the photos are super organized by type of design and then time period and I spent a ridiculous amount of time browsing through a good chunk of them this morning. Check it out over here

Here are a few of my favorites

London

I got back from London almost 2 weeks ago but I have been unusually extremely busy and just found the time a few days ago to put my photos on my computer. I really didn’t take many photos and focused more on working on my sketchbook. Once I get my scanner back and working I’ll share some pages from that. But in the meantime here are some photos of my trip. Check out the rest on my flickrDSC_0067

Markets markets markets! This was taken at the Slow Food Market in London

Bath was seriously GORGEOUS and a highlight of my trip, I was probably swayed by the amazing weather that I had there too.

Explored lots of little shops and gathered up lots of inspiration
