So, last night i started a new tradition.... walking down memory lane. I started thinking about things that have given me inspiration from my past. Things that inspire me to draw. Above is a book called "A person is many strange and wonderful things" writen by my sister Marsha Sinetar. We never met... but we both draw in a very similar way.
The Nut Tree... i miss it every day and all the creative collages and art they had in the dining room and all over their stores.
Takahashi flowers... i just found a pack of these recently at a flea market. The flowers that i draw now are definately inspired by these.
I used to have a little loom and this cool plastic raffia. I made thousands of these fun flowers....
Jean Ray Laury.... she exhibited at the nut tree and I think i have like 10 out of hundreds of books she wrote... love her!
Oh my heck... i had a fun flower machine and both my brother and I had incredible edibles, creepy crawlers and a hot wheels vacu-form machine. Kids need these again. (This one is on e-bay for $113... anyone wanna buy linzi a gift?
Ricky Ticky stickers... ahhh! When i had my store in LA... i tracked down the man who made them and he still had a box of 100 packs left. I bought all fo them for like $1 a pack. Sold all but 6 packs... guess where those are?
Loved these too. My mom took me to a hobby store when we lived in Saratoga and i think one summer i must have made hundreds of these weird things. I think we need these at ben's.
Oh yeah... a Takahashi canister. Loved the colors of everything they made. I think these were like $1... this one is on etsy for like $37. Really?
Thanks for taking this walk down memory lane with me. What are some things that have inpired you from your past to be the creative being you are today? Google them and show me!!!
