My current artist crush is Los Angeles based/ Berlin born Nike Schroeder.
The things she can do with fibers!! From portraiture that is amazingly complex for pure embroidery, to her newest work—my favorite—which evokes a waterfall of color.
While showing hints of a color-field painting, the threads drip off the “canvas” bleeding from one color into another.
I want to lay in this room for hours, surrounded by these magical flowing fibers.

Alternative Careers in Photography
I’m excited to be among the talented panel for Alternative Careers in Photography on March 13th! Melissa Hennessy and the Portfolio Center at Columbia College Chicago continue to offer an evolving set of programs designed to help students make well-informed career choices. As a Columbia student, I took full advantage of the resources at the Portfolio Center. As alumni, I’m excited to be included as one of those resources!
For every student who thinks (or knows) they don’t have to be the photographer to make an impact on the photography industry, there are plenty of art buyers, producers, photo editors, digital techs, agents, stylists, gallery owners and curators to validate that career path!
Join us Thursday, March 13th as we hear from a panel of artists who began their careers as photographers and went on to find fulfillment & reward in other areas of the photo industry. Each will speak about their past roles in the industry and how they arrived in their current & very supportive roles in our photo community.
Date: Tuesday, March 18th
Time: Panel 6-7pm, followed by Q&A
Location: Ferguson Gallery - 1st Fl | 600 S. Michigan Avenue
Food & Beverage provided at 5:30pm

Thanks Mother Nature for one last, perfectly timed snow storm! Also big thank you to Jim Beam for giving Lee ( @exphendrix1 ) the courage to stand barefoot in snow and ice this morning!
Happy Monday!! #dawnpatrol #urbansurfers
Lazy, let’s do anything to procrastinate on cleaning, kind of day.
@endlssbmmr missing the mark.
I’ve got to tell you guys about all the amazing things happening over at Susie’s Senior Dogs. So we started this page on a whim last week, for the purpose of placing old dogs in new homes. (And by we, I mean 95% my girlfriend, and 5% me— let’s be honest.) Nearly 100,000 people “liked” the page in 24 hours.
We’ve posted about 11 dogs so far, and 6 of them have been adopted— from all over the country. It’s just been an incredible success. Almost all of these dogs were ten years or older, and many of them had been in shelters for a long time. Check out these pictures of the pups in their new homes. Remember, these guys were sleeping in cages just last week.
From Left to Right: Nina (13), Fancy (12), and Max (10).
