Happy Solstice!

Happy Summer Solstice! This is one of my favorite times of year. I love the reminder that we are just specks on this wonderful earth. The cycle continues like it has long before us and how it will long after us. All we can do is gather together on the longest day of the year and hope that we're lucky enough to be a part of this beautiful cycle a little bit longer!

May Art Journal!

May art journal! I made this little booklet with fold out pages a long time ago. I was saving it for a special project but then realized I've got a dozen little notebooks I'm "saving" for some reason. I was looking for something small for my next art journal and this lil' one was perfect! I'm hoping in my June art journal I'll have time for some more illustrations. This past month was a bit wordy! I guess I just had a lot to say!

VERVE Interview!

I little while ago I told you guys that I got the amazing opportunity to be interviewed by a local web series VERVE and now my episode is released! I'm so stoked that I got the chance to talk about ZINES! Zines are one of my all time favorite things and I'm so happy that I get to share my love of zines with everyone. I'm still shocked that I was given this opportunity despite being really shy and dorky. I also got to meet the cooooolest group of creatives that put these things together. Theres something wonderful about getting to work with other creatives! You can see more of the series HERE. They did such a good job editing it! I love the music and they totally made me sound like I knew what I was talking about, cause I really doubt I sounded that confident! Its such a weird thing to here and see yourself! I had no idea my voice sounded like that! Also I make some really strange faces when I think no one is looking. Overall I'm really excited and happy with how it all turned out!
My hope is that someone will see this and be inspired to make their own zine! I truly do feel like art and zines are for everyone and everyone could benefit from making one! So if you've been thinking about it, now is the time to make one!

New Zine: Twins!

I made a bunch of new zines in April for Grid Zine! I'm just now getting some photos taken and some copies mailed out. I thought i'd share them here too. This one is called Twins! Its basically about being a twin! BUT also how bonds and friendships can mimic the feeling of a twin. It is really awesome how we can connect with people and this zine captures those feelings. Its really simple and has really simple illustrations, but I loved the way it turned out.
I have a few copies left, if you'd like one you can always email at remikeahi@gmail.com! 

Out Going Mail!

I've been crazy on top of my mail responses lately! Overall I've just been in good creative spirits. Mail art is just one of my favorites ways to be creative! I've been sending a bunch of zines to people, which means I get to make fancy mail! If you're wanting some of my zines I'll gladly send you some fancy mail! You can email me at remikeahi@gmail.com! 

Making. Listening. Eating

I've been making mini tag collages to add to my letters.
I can't get enough of Shaky Graves newest album Can't Wake Up
 Zoei made the best wonton soup the other night which was perfect for cramps and all this rainy-ness!

April Art Challenge Re-Cap!

A little bit ago I did THIS post about By Bun's April Art Challenge! My original idea was to post them on here as I went but April went by so fast I barely got them up on my Instagram. So I thought I'd so a re-cap post and include all of my lil' drawings for April! I'm actually surprised how well I kept up with this challenge, normally I give up quickly as things become busy!

Song and Doodle #72

Eek! Todays song and doodle is the song Oom Sha La La by Haley Heynderickx! Her album I Need To Start A Garden has been one of my favorites lately and officially the anthem for spring 2018. Now this doodle kinda got a away from me because I love ALL the lyrics in this song and obviously tried to squeeze way too much on to one image. I adore the way she writes lyrics and they are so heartbreakingly relatable. I get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside when I listen to a song and think "me too" afterwards. I will always be enamored by people who can help us relate to one another in a mystical matter. Wonderful, wonderful song! Listen, listen!
