I am very fortunate to be a part of a creative household. I love Matagi – not only is he funny as hell, and smart, and a good father – he is a talented artist and designer. Though I wish we had more free time, the part of me that is Capricorn-ing secretly loves that he works as hard as he does.
I love design books, too. So, for his graduation, I gave him these:
The books are gorgeous – and all of the works are produced by contemporary artists contributing from all over the world.
I also gave him two reference books:
The author, Tim McCreight is a well-known and well-respected teacher and artist among metalsmiths.
I am glad Matagi likes these books, and that he can use them to refer to for his work. I know I am finding them inspiring – and they are also helping me to more deeply understand his process.
