I'm home from Scotland, not only that but I'm home for over a month and a half which I couldn't be more excited about. I will be spending this time focusing on my new gallery at Sky High as well as working on the Sign Painter Documentary and getting ready for Art vs. Craft in the fall.

I must warn you, I will be drastically blogging here less and less as programing I am traveling to dwindles but you can always keep up to date with my going on's by following me on twitter (I am @faythelevine) and by bookmarking my other blog. BUT I will continue to update Handmade Nation screenings on the sidebar to the right.

Meanwhile, I though it would be fun to show you these two animations from my good friends Kate Bingaman-Burt (aka Obsessive Consumption) and Tracy Bull (aka Happy Owl Glassworks).

Kate is the best. She has done so much to support the Handmade Nation project from lettering the hand drawn type in our book to designing posters, merch, etc. I urge you to go and support her on her Summer Zoom tour!

This stop animation (I can't seem to find a way to embed the video) was done by Tracy as a way to promote Renegade Brooklyn that happened last week. Although the show is past, it is so lovely I think you should all take a peek. My friendship with Tracy goes back to some of the first craft fairs I participated in as a designer when I was still running my company Flying Fish Design. She has not only extensively supported Handmade Nation with generous donations but I have worked with her in my gallery selling her amazingly designed glass objects and her fantastic illustrations.

Hope you all enjoy the beginning of summer......... x Faythe
