A Pretty Cool Lady (And I know a Few)

This is from her book, This is Not a Book.

This is from her flickr of making one thing every day for a month.

And again from the make-something-a day-for-a-month idea. She drew something and then torched it. And I thought burning was just for ex-boyfriends! I bet it's pretty cathartic to burn something you like just as an exercise in realizing the fleeting value of objects (even ones we cherish).

Keri Smith is a totally awesome illustrator. She has some fun ideas about making life more interesting and enjoying it as much as possible. Here is her great blog and a few pictures of her great ideas.
