The Sharpie Show

Craft & Design

Happiness is a fresh Sharpie. I don’t think there’s a crafty person out there who doesn’t own a Sharpie (or 20). This ubiquitous staple of artists worldwide is the subject of a show going on now through March 1st at L.A.’s Crewest Gallery. Peep some of their offerings on their Flickr stream. Via Juxtapoz.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
