About – OkGoods on Instagram

There’s no doubt that sharing on social media is easier than creating a blog post, so if you want more frequent updates on random things from OkGoods (aka me) then you can follow along on Instagram for fashion sketches, plant portraits, and random pictures with good light. ; )

Here’s a bit of my life lately:

Our apartment is covered with plant babies, and we can’t help but keep buying more.

Some of the gang, including a stubborn Spider Plant I’m trying to rescue

Thanks for reading!

Mia Christopher

Look at this cute and energetic work from Mia Christopher! That second piece is called ‘Rabbits That Are Dancing or Boxing’, I love it! She works with a lot of different materials, but her style stays true. I enjoy that she’s not restricting herself, she’s an explorer with imagination. Read an interview with her here and visit more of her whimsical folk-ish art her flickr. Found via Seesaw.

It’s in the Strokes

I love seeing the personality of the artist come through in the line work of their drawings. That’s another reason sketchbooks are so exciting. The process, the mistakes, the overlapping ideas… It’s a reminder to experiment and get messy. No one has to see the ugly bits.

Artwork (from top to bottom) created by Jen Collins and Caitlin Shearer and Adara Sánchez Anguiano.

Wander Monster

Kids are kind of neat. Kids can be creative and funny (and sticky and scary) and if you are a neat dad you can collaborate with them to make hilarious art. Wander Monster is a project between Rob Kimmel and his little dude-boy-son. Rob makes the beginning of the picture and his son finishes it. Altogether that equals art and awesome.

P.s. Wander Monster is the sweetest name ever.
