Greetings, internets! 

Enough smalltalk, here’s the news:

  • www.melindafarrar.com has had a small facelift. That website is now an illustrated portal with links to all the places you can find things I do and make. Check it out.
  • My art page on patreon.com is going well. I have posted several patron-supported pieces, sent out hand-printed cards and art to all those who signed up in August, and I am posting new art this month. If you haven’t checked out what’s happening over at Patron, it’s pretty cool. Definitely check it out if you’re interested in supporting an independent artist and getting original artwork mailed to you in return. Click here.
  • I’ve got a few extra-handmade cards up on Etsy. I say “extra-handmade” because in addition to being letterpressed, they have either been colored with watercolors or hand-stitched with thread. Check ’em out here:

  • And, finally, here is a photo of two friends hanging out in my art studio. Miss Cloud and Tiny Robot #1. (polyfill, paper, sculpey, wire, love)
Insert technology joke about "the cloud" here, maybe.

I’m on Pinterest now. [click here] Go follow! Pin! Re-pin! Tell the WORLD!

Also, I have restocked OLD 55 with more letterpressed Moleskines (–after they sold out yesterday. Huzzah!). If you live in LA and want to grab one, go there and check ’em out. Also, as of today, there are only 2 left on Etsy.

I have plans to print more, but am waiting on materials.

Have a beautiful weekend. I’m foregoing chocolate bunnies and just sticking with my chocolate poodle. What she lacks in edibility, she makes up for with charm and adorableness. And she has cute little bear paws.

I know it seems quiet around here– but that’s just because I’m bad about updating stuff online. Offline, we are busy bees. Below are two snapshots of how we spent our day. My poodle-y assistant and I pressed a limited run of something new that I hope folks might be into: little letterpressed Moleskines. (The 2nd photo below is of the backs of the notebooks. The front will be revealed tomorrow!)

Pictured: the most interesting thing that my dog barked at out the window today.

I’m finally getting around to making some things out of other things and using my sewing machine. This Singer is probably almost 70 years old and humming along well enough for someone (me), who knows very little about the process, to attach pieces of fabric together with thread.

For the first time since 2004, I attended the Coachella music festival. I’m not a fan of crowds, nor am I a fan of standing for hours in the sweltering heat. But this time was different. Aside from feeling far more removed from the youth culture than I was 8 years ago, I enjoyed my  choice of sensible footwear while my handsome companion and I had fun hipster-watching. Also, the weather was perfect. I think it was the first time I’ve experienced water  falling from the sky in the desert.

I saw so many bands. Radiohead will always be my favorite. Always. That said, Andrew Bird wins for bringing a tear to my eye with his rendition of “It’s Not Easy Being Green”, tUnE yArDs bowled me over big time, St. Vincent was guitar-shreddingly and crowd-surfingly fantastic, and PULP was simply electrifying. (Honorable mention goes to James, Bon Iver, The Shins, Arctic Monkeys and Yuck).

Here are a few snapshots…

Also, just for fun:

And music that was stuck in my head for the rest of the weekend

2012 continues in its unpredictability. Onward.
