Paint & Sip with Gayle at Ballard Beer Co is Last Wednesdays, 6-8pm! August's subject will be succulents, 'cause we just can't get enough of plants! 🏵️
Book Spotlight: Creative, Not Famous
Few artists achieve fame and fortune, but that doesn't mean your creative life can't flourish.
Writer, illustrator, zinemaker, and playwright Ayun Halliday interviewed dozens of creative people and shared her own experiences to produce this rallying cry for the "small potato"—someone whose focus is making cool, meaningful work and living a creative life rather than achieving wealth or celebrity.
