As you might notice, I found a treasure trove of wonderful posters and handbills that I will be posting on this blog

For this post I’m offering up some wonderful links to famous art, great sketch books for artists (I get no money if you buy one) and some wonderful things you should know about…wait for it…COFFEE

Here’s a link to all 36 of Jan Vermeers incredible paintings including the Dutch Mona Lisa

Because I love Coffee here’s a bunch of things (around 15) that you definitely should know about Coffee

Creative market put out this interesting list of sketch books and pads that I thought I’d send along to you.

So that’s it for now. Carry a sketchbook and a pencil because you never know when you might want to make your mark. And of course remember

Imagination is never still. The marks we make are Verbs!

Donald Kolberg graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from California State University, Los Angeles. He taught at the Los Angeles School of Art and co-founded Art Core, an organization dedicated to the open dialogue and display of the work of emerging artists. He continued his Master studies at Otis Art Institute. While at Otis Art Institute his teacher and main influence was internationally recognized painter Arnold Mesches. In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
