Birthday Month, Coney Island and Natalie Babbitt

Here one of our favorite authors, Natalie Babbitt, is setting the scene for her beloved young adult novel Tuck Everlasting: “The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot.

February & March: WHOA

I think I need to get this tattooed on the inside of my eyelids: UPDATE THE FV BLOG, PAYTON. In lieu of regular updates, I hope you’ve been enjoying our Instagram stream (click here to follow!) which is constantly being updated. February was a hectic month: I spent two weeks as an artist in residence at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada. My sticker wallpaper was part of an exhibition called “Secret Stash: Accumulation, Hoarding, and the Love of Stuff” curated by Kirsty Robertson. It was an incredible... Read The Rest →
