When I’m feeling stuck or uninspired (or avoiding the laundry, the bills, the deadlines looming), I stumble for a creative restart.
Today’s favorite stumble is Linda Zacks, a New York artist experimenting with art and words to produce an intriguing mash of edge and allure.
An accomplished graphic designer and illustrator, Zacks also creates one-of-a-kind handmade books incorporating the art of typography and photography. I especially love the way type emerges as an artform in the gritty book (pictured above), "I swallowed a rainbow, got drunk on air & puked it up all over the world."
Life is short — but unbearably long when rules and responsibilities slow your step. Go ahead, take some time to stumble around.
