Good to Know #2: Developing a personal style

Hi there!

The topic for the second round of the Good to Know project kicks off with a question by Momo of :


When does one know that a personal style has developed? And is it important to know what exactly that style is?


If you’d like to take part, all you need to do is:
1. Reply to this e-mail with your response; and also
2. Add in your name + link to your blog/portfolio/shop

…. and please send it in within 5 days (by May 16) to be included and I’ll do the rest!

P/S —thank you so much to those who have responded to my email about changes in the PikaPackage Project ( I’ve already personally replied to each one who has commented on the topic, and I’ll be taking some time off from the project to figure out my next course of action. You’ll be the first to know when I’ve found the best solution! Big hugs!

Have a great week ahead!


++ The Good to Know project is a monthly read available as a printed zine + PDF download that’s full of advice + inspiration from artists/illustrators/designers on creativity, business and life.
If you missed our first round that asks the question of how to overcome creative stumbling blocks, here’s the main page to get you there!

Weekend links

Here’s a little roundup of links that will keep you occupied this Sunday (it was supposed to be posted up on Saturday, but there was some database issues with the website which almost made me panic. It’s all good now though!):

  1. Adam of PICDIT is having a giveaway of the Good to Know zine, just comment and share about the topic at hand: How do you overcome stumbling blocks to creativity?
  2. I was featured on Designers Who Blog (the lovely Cat asked me to be on DWB last year, but just managed to put this up — I’ve already cut my hair since then ;)
  3. Lisa Congdon has a new blog (with her very good furry pal, Wilfredo!) and Chronicle Books is giving away Lisa Congdon’s Birch Forest Flexi Journal and Le Forêt Eco-Keepsake notecards to three lucky readers of My Love For You (just leave a comment!);
  4. Have you been to the Eric Carle museum?

See you all again tomorrow, and hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far!
