I recently interviewed one of my favorite illustrators ever—the illustrator of everything from fashion editorial to (s)Mythology, an extraordinary painter of flora, and the master of bespoke stationery, KT Smail. KT is a Scottish illustrator, designer, and painter based in Brooklyn, NY, whose work has been featured on DesignLoveFest (which is where I first saw KT’s work—a super cute watermelon painting that I used as my iPhone background) and Refinery29. Her illustrations are just dreamy and her bespoke wedding stationery is probably the best I’ve ever seen (see her full line of work at whatKTdoes). In this interview, KT talks about her illustrations, making mistakes, finding success in the creative industry, and her dream project.

I was in LA so I haven’t been able to post these past few days (I was busy eating, spa-ing, discussing online dating profiles, spotting celebrities, learning that Nicole Richie is THE tiniest woman in the world, not sleeping, and eating some more). It was the birthday of my dear friend Chynna who was celebrating for an entire weekend with an infinite amount of food (this girl had a sushi buffet lunch and fancy Napa Rose dinner, plus she had two birthday cakes from Portos and a pre-birthday chocolate cake). Chynna’s an overindulgent wine and dine whore and it’s why I love her.
I thought I’d share some of my favorite reads and videos from the Interwebs last week. I found all of these articles and videos to be actually interesting (read: something worth giving your attention to for longer than a minute). If you’re anything like me, I think you might get something out of them, too.
