Women who draw ridiculously well

Women Who Code is cool and totally worth supporting, but I’m always going to be a Women Who Draw kinda guy. It’s an open directory of pro female illustrators, artists, and cartoonists who are open for freelance work. The special thing about this site is a focus on increasing the visibility of females of color, LBTQ+, and other minority groups that don’t traditionally get as much recognition.

It’s really cool to see the diversity of styles on here that comes with a global spectrum. Let’s support these amazing artists, and if you are one yourself, pull your portfolio together and get on here.

AM Commute

How do you feel about your morning commute? I’m torn. When it takes too long, it can be dreadful, but I’ve found the absence of one removes a space of time to gather my thoughts, read, or prepare for the day. We put together short videos of our morning commutes from up and down the West Coast. If you’d like to join us in sharing yours, tag it #hmcommute on Instagram.

Party off the pounds

I’m not sure what gave me the epiphany (or if you can call it one), but I’ve decided that indie electronic music and old Richard Simmons videos are made for each other. Do you agree?

Andrew W.K. Party Tips Could Save Your Life

Heartbreaking events put a major buzzkill on this past week. They are not the first, nor the last, but what I do know is we have to continue to spread love and positivity, not fear and hate. If you won’t heed my advice, take a look at Andrew W.K.’s party tips on Twitter. They are lovely injections of optimism that will make you smile. And for those with an attention span, make sure to read his advice column in the Village Voice. It’s beautiful.

Bow down to your new king of sweaters

Talking about Cosby sweaters is a bit conflicting these days, but fear not because Reggie Watts has been sporting even better ones and doesn’t assault people. One mega fan Alaina has gone as far as to create Reggie’s Sweaters, a celebration of Reggie’s sweaters as worn on Comedy Bang! Bang! Each Friday she’s releasing an image of Reggie in a different sweater and plans to recreate each sweater pattern as a 15″ quilt block. Eventually she’ll stitch ’em all together into a queen-sized sampler quilt, which is pretty rad.
