Who would’ve thought that the humble Sharpie could be such an extraordinary design tool?

In his book, “Sharpie Art Workshop,” Timothy Goodman encourages us to put down the paint brush and pick up a Sharpie.

This bright and bold book is full of how-to’s, techniques, creative exercises and a whole lot of inspiration. If a wall/cup/sneaker/your annoying younger sibling is merely a blank canvas to you, then Tim Goodman’s book will point you in the right creative direction.

Now pass me my high-tops; I’ve got some shoes to Sharpie.

Living simply and consciously is something Kate trying to do, by finding out how our individual actions contribute to the world we live in.

She aims to both reflect and protect the natural world around us, not just in style but also in her practices. Using a range of traditional and inventive techniques and methods, without relying on toxic or unsustainable products like floral foam and imported flowers laces with pesticides and chemicals.
