Friday Faves: Color Love

Friday Faves Color Love

I’ve been absolutely riveted by this month’s Uppercase cover — a color wheel made out of yarn using a rug hooking technique. Its colorful and crafty and speaks to me on a geeky, arty level. If you do not already subscribe to Uppercase or its epic Encyclopedia compendiums, its worth every penny. They are inspiring and full of beautiful illustration, printmakers, crafters and other creative types. An upcoming volume of the Encyclopedia is coming called “Vintage” and I kick myself for not trying to be a part of that volume. And really, Skylab should have been in the Printmaker volume. Oh, well. We were busy being printmakers and vintage.

I’ve been loving yellow lately. And turquoise. Always turquoise…. AKA cyan. I can never get enough pink. Black goes with everything and VOILA! CMYK. Tis the season for orange and lime is forever. It’s my personal rainbow.
