In the past, I probably would have laughed if someone told me I’d like yoga. But, for the past year, I’ve done yoga (almost) everyday at my house, using Hulu+ videos (Hilaria Baldwin, Colleen Saidman, and the happy new agey kids of the 1990s Yoga Zone videos), on some mat a friend of mine gave me when I moved to LA., and I love it.
Maybe it’s time to upgrade to a Magic Carpet Yoga Mat?
Mitra’s been working on this thing for a while…and it’s going to be insane. Check out her Blood is the New Black Pop-up at Space 1520 tonight…kissing booths, ice cream, hot dog eating, wet tee shirt contests, dry tee shirts…basically see inside her crazy and wonderful mind for the night….:)
my picture’s up on the Urban blog for the Hattie Stewart event a couple months ago. Read more about her and her work here.
was the COOLEST.
She grew up in Milwaukee and graduated from the University of Wisconsin (this is a cool-girl pedigree if I’ve ever
seen lived it), and she wrote some of the best children’s books ever, like my favorite, The Westing Game
The Mysterious Disappearance of Leon (I mean Noel)
The Tattooed Potato and Other Clues, and Figgs & Phantoms.
She also did all the graphic design and illustration for these books, and, as I just learned today, she designed other book covers as well, including one of the most iconic: this awesome Wrinkle In Time cover.
The University of Wisconsin has the Westing Game Manuscript...something to check out the next time I’m there.
The UW site also has more info about Raskin than anywhere else I’ve seen online. She died in the early 80s, and her daughter runs a foundation to help cats.
funny interview with the one and only Lisa Frank, here.
it’s a small edition…at a sweet price…so get to it!
