In The Studio

studio vcky Doodle Club July 2018 *mini edition*

Posted by vcky studio on

DOODLE CLUB is happening again!   The first studio vcky DOODLE CLUB was September of 2017. I usually spend September in a pit of anxiety, prepping (hoping!) for a holiday rush and running around in a panic-induced overwhelm. I wanted to challenge myself to draw something every day in September, to draw without the pressure of print-ready perfection or any specific purpose. Doing it publicly held me accountable to the schedule I set, and following the IG hashtag  #studiovckydoodleclub became my favourite part of a morning routine. It was endlessly fascinating. Artists were using different mediums (Tanja from Berlin doodled with a sewing machine on...

Bourdain

Posted by vcky studio on

This has nothing to do with art. I came to Canada at 4 years old. I was shy, I was bratty, I was inordinately sensitive. My mother packed my lunch on one of my first full days of school.

Since it's temporary, I've put off buying anything new and have been trying to make do with what I've got. A bunch of old dressers and tables and a kid sized "vanity", now house about 80% of my stock. The rest is squirrelled away in some closet space, and under my twin bed.  So I've been sitting on a wooden stool for the past few weeks. It looks like this No...

A new year, an old me.

Posted by vcky studio on

I moved across the country a week ago, I'm pretty sure I left my brain somewhere in the prairies. The rest of me is languishing dangerously close to the border while searching for my sanity. I'm okay, just completely disoriented. There's that age old debate of whether or not creative people have messy desks and whether or not it's indicative of a brilliant mind, or if that messy desk is actually ruinous. My messy desk is ruining my life. I'm one of those incredibly messy people who is unable to work in a messy environment. So while fifty cardboard boxes...
