It is better to be high-spirited even though one makes more mistakes, than to be narrow-minded and all to prudent.
Vincent Van Gogh

Salvador Dalí - Plate (facing page 92) from Les Chants de Maldoror 1934 #salvadordali#dali#comtedelautreamont •
In 1930 Dali was invited to illustrate Les Chants de Maldoror, an 1869 text rediscovered by the Surrealists in the 1930s that told a nightmarish tale of an unrepentantly evil protagonist. The book was filled with scenes of violence, perversion, and blasphemy. Dali, who worked in a method he called "paranoiac-critical," used a stream-of-consciousness process to access hallucinations and delusions. These personal visions, rather than scenes described in the prose poem, became the subjects of his illustrations.
The individual prints Dali executed in the 1930s, made predominately at the workshop of Roger Lacourière, were experiments in intaglio and were never published as editions. Limp Cranes and "Cranian" Harp, composed as an accumulation of sketches, juxtaposes an array of Dali's quintessential motifs—soft watches, mutating shoes, and the stretched harp and deformed skulls referred to in the title. The harp and skull were, for Dali, evocative of melancholy and death. He claimed that his particular obsession with skull imagery was rooted in a childhood memory of encountering an encephalitic whose skull had been deformed by disease.

Here’s a sneak peak on Cryptographic Self Boxes, a 3D series of 12 boxes with pen and ink drawings. The first piece is called "Promises, Promises". Second we see, "Cinder Block Prisoner" also from Cryptographic Self Boxes.

The beginnings of my work oasis - My home office. It’s not done yet but I love that it’s filled with other artists pieces and not my own. I am grateful to have this little nook of the house, an actual room to call my own and surround myself with personal pieces that speak to me. I love that this room is two sided. One side is very orderly and filled with computer screens, clean lines, & organization - while the other side has my art table and tools, is chaos (beautiful chaos) daily, and vibrant. #myhaven#artistcommunity#supportfellowartists follow @marisariveraart and @emilydilbeckart for your own pieces of magic and love.
Fantastic evening at The Secret Drawing Club this evening. I had never been to a life drawing class before and I loved undertaking the 15 minute sketches, then building up to the 40 minute sketch right at the end, where I used colour in a way I'd never done before. Will definitely be back!
What a gem the world lost today. RIP to the great Mary Oliver. She left so many gifts for us all. Here’s one of her beautiful poems: .
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

‼️WARNING!‼️ This is what happens when you take a nap instead of doing the #sjnielsensketchingchallenge first, like you planned... You end up with craziness, bleeding colors, smudged paint, and using your yoga pants as a napkin. 🤦🏻♀️
Day 17: Power lines. Which abound outside of my Houston apartment. But I’m finding the good y’all! Really! I am! I think... 🤪
Excited to be the guest speaker for the Artist League of Orange County this Saturday! I’ll be teaching artists how to market their art and create their own marketing plan! It’s free and open to the public, so if you’re in the area, come and say hi! Slide for info.

On my little artistic journey, and I’m meeting so many amazing people and artists. Everyone wanting to help connect me to the right people and who are so supportive of what I’m doing and trying to accomplish. Last night I was invited to an artist meet-up by an artist I’ve been following for awhile on insta. It was so neat to meet and connect in person—and she is the sweetest! Please follow her @hailysouth cuz she is the greatest! ------------------------------------------

HAPPY BDAY MRS O 💖
I was CRAZY lucky to see the mightiest of babes @michelleobama talk a few months ago when she visited Edinburgh (I know, I know, still can’t believe it. Saw her hubby the year before too #braggingalittle 😂🙌🏼)
Anyway, it occurred to me that I took notes when she was talking because her words were like a magic spell and I was scared my brain would forget them. -
It felt like she had taken on responsibility for all the women in the world and there was something really warming about hanging with her (okay, I was working BUT, I was in the same room as her for a proper long time so we’re basically sisters now). Anyway, I thought it’d be nice to share’m seeing as it’s her birthday and she’ll be waiting on me to tag her in something nice 😂👏🏼 I can fill you guys in on context if one or two bits don’t make sense. But hopefully you’ll get the jist 🥰
⭐️ I was poor but I had all of the right stuff.
🌟 (Growing up) I was lucky enough to be surrounded by strong men who loved and respected me.
💫 What you need to be great is already in there. You just got to believe and bring it out. ⚡️Men grow up assuming they know. Women take the time to realise they’re right.
✨ We are creating the spaces for our girls to go into. We have a LOT of work to do.
💫 Let your passion lead you.
☀️ The opposition have feelings too. Leadership requires the ability to understand that. Empathy. -
⭐️ Show your true self. Put it out there.
✨ Young people. Own your stories. Be okay with it. Tell it out loud. Don’t feel bad about the bad bits. We recognise more of the bad bits than the good bits in each other. Make it okay. 🌟 Advice to your teenage self: don’t be so afraid. Don’t be afraid of being wrong. Try, fail and then get up. Be a good person, decent, kind and empathetic but you don’t have to be perfect. 🖼: Amazing artwork from @asherald
It’s been a great week in the studio developing our new series of Khadi Circles. Pictured here is the talented @gintare_bandinskaite working on our first giant Khadi. We spent many hours dreaming up this concept and it’s so special to watch it unfold ⚡️
