The Drawing Board #6
Sunday Candy Collab, Rychelle's Painting of my Grandpa's House, Guest Workshop
Welcome to my newsletter where I share my personal creative process. I hope to inspire you to pick up a pen, paint brush or spatula and create something spectacular.
This week is all about creating with others.
Sunday Candy Collab
First, I collaborated with my good friend Sandra Yvonne on her newsletter Sunday Candy. Every other Sunday, Sandra experiments with her profound writing and art. Each issue is different. It’s actually my favorite newsletter. I find myself constantly refreshing my inbox every other Sunday, excited for the next issue to land. I was beyond thrilled when she asked me to collaborate on this week’s issue.
Together, we curated a Spotify playlist and designed the playlist cover and issue’s header. I then painted the background and digitally superimposed text on top. You can read more about our design process on my website in the link below:
Rychelle’s Illustration of Grandpa’s House
My friend Rychelle made this beautiful illustration of my grandpa’s house.
His house is one of my favorite places, and is featured in my essay Heavy Heirlooms. He built this enclosed patio with his own hands, along with his father, back in the 1950s.
I’m so happy and grateful to have this artwork to memorialize his creation, and to have as a new heirloom.
