Even more than giving our community the unique name I feel it deserves, I also love how the new name of Moment Sketchers instantly conveys what we’re about. Most importantly, I hope it’ll help us grow even more over time.
I was reminded of the importance of keeping a lookout for fresh inspiration…whether it’s in something as small as noticing a fuchsia-colored flower on the sidewalk, or as grand as reliving a night with the Cirque du Soleil.
This weekend, our plates were full of the events that shape our lives — starting jobs, celebrating birthdays, saying goodbye to loved ones — but I love that we still found even the smallest windows of time in which to sketch.
Getting to write a Sleep Story about my time on a Tahitian black pearl farm for Calm was more than just a huge honor — it was a chance to return to one of my very favorite places in the world. Hope you enjoy it!
As I prepared for my event with Adagio Teas, I loved putting together a trio of limited-edition art prints featuring illustrations from “Home is a Cup of Tea.” Starting today, they’re now available for the next 72 hours.
The recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, still weigh heavy on my heart, but I’m grateful for the people in my own life, and for all of you in my community around the globe, who believe love must always win.

Markets have always had a way of drawing me to them. No matter how big or small, each market has a way of unlocking that place for me, letting me get to its very heart as I witness the local community coming together.
I once spent a couple of nights in Vancouver, before catching a ferry to nearby Salt Spring Island, so doing a live interview with a radio station in Vancouver this week was a fun and unexpected return to the city for me.
Teaching a sketching workshop reminded me of the power of our sketchbooks: That instead of looking down at our devices, sketching draws our gaze up and out into the world, where beauty and discovery await us.
