Open Letter to Winter

Dear Winter, I regret to inform you that, despite your insistence on stormy weather and temperatures below 60 degrees, the three months during which you are allowed prominence ended well over a week ago. While your rain clouds and the cozy days at home they encourage were appreciated in December, your presence is no longer … Continue reading

Bits & Pieces: Vassi Slavova

1. Bicycles are always fun, but something about approaching spring always draws me to pastel cruisers and bright townies more than usual. Milwaukee based illustrator Vassi Slavova‘s retro inspired posters perfectly capture the spring and summer elements cycling holds for me–the Bike Chick poster shown below seems especially appropriate for the first days of spring, … Continue reading
