The tumblr blog Cosmarxpolitan is one of my new favorites. "Fun fearless freedom from the oppression of capitalism" is their tagline achieved by combining Cosmo style tips with Marxism.

I have had quite a few requests over at my Facebook fan page to see inside my sketchbooks, so here we go. The more formal collages will get galleries just as they have in the past, so the ones over here in the blog will be little glimpses into the rest of my books and my process. I'll be posting a new one every Wednesday.

May Day

I've been following The Frame for a couple of years. This is a photo blog from the Sacramento Bee that features photo essays on a variety of subjects. I especially like their global perspective. Their photos are huge and well curated!

This May Day series of photos from around the globe are especially inspiring. It's a good reminder that the struggle for workers rights affects us all. I've included a few of the photos, but you should hit the link to see the whole series!

Inspiration: Andrew Bruce

Tender #7 by Andrew Bruce

I have been looking at these beautiful photos by Andrew Bruce and I just want more, more, more! The beautiful photos of roadkill are poignant and a reminder of the fragility of life.

Grimes on Feminism

I've been listening to music by Grimes today after reading her take on being a woman in the music industry that was covered over at Feministing.
