This is the second March of my working life where I've been self-employed. Which means, I don't have to listen to basketball talk all month long. (Though one year I did win the bracket, and used my winnings to buy my first swift!) Anyways, it's March Mayhem over at MDK, and that's the only kind of bracket I'm really interested in.
I've been studying color lately. Color theory, color history (it's a thing!), and random factoids about color. So I thought it was pretty nifty when the "inventor" of aniline dyes, Sir William Henry Perkins, was featured as one of this week's Google Doodles.
The world lost a talented artist last week. Ethel Stein, a master weaver (and the creator of the Lambchops puppet!) passed away. Here is her obituary in the New York Times, and here is a fantastic video of her weaving. I can only hope to be a creator throughout my life like she was.
