Chop Time

I finally gave in. Last time I got a haircut was in early January, so I was about due for a cut when this* all started. I hacked about 3 inches off today and feel more like myself. Though not ideal, I can say I've paid for worse haircuts in the past.

*For future reference (and it's nice to imagine a day when this would be needed for clarity), "this" refers to nonessential businesses including salons shutting down and stay-at-home orders being issued by states to reduce the spread of global pandemic Covid-19.

Just to be clear: #BlackLivesMatter

Mostly I've been listening to and amplifying Black voices as well as opportunities for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) on twitter of late.

But I want to specifically state that I believe Black lives matter.




Every day.

Life of Art #537 [New Pride Gear and New Style Face Masks]

What a heartbreaking, infuriating, and awe-inspiring week it's been. I just want the huge masses of people who've shown up to protest, first, to stay healthy and safe, and second, to VOTE in federal, state, and local elections. Footholds in politics often start local.

Anyway, back to this week's update.

I created a new LGBTQ Pride design which I added to a variety of stickers, car magnets, a car flag, face shield, face masks, and more:

See more Pride stickers here:

Created new all over print face masks which you can see in these collections: political, custom business logo, and general:
