sunday, august 10, 2014, 12:02 pm } my name is eve. what’s yours?

I decided that Eve has worked hard enough, frolicked long enough and has enough antics under her belt to merit her own Instagram account. And she deserves a last name. Here she is: Eve van Vaterbearer. Follow her on @stories_of_eves. Read More

I just ordered two accordion notebooks and am so excited to create my storybook drawings in one of them. I was inspired to use this format after I visited the Etel Adnan exhibition at the Mathaf Museum in Doha last spring. And thanks to my own exhibition’s co-curator Namkha for teaching me the word ‘leporello’. I love it. Read More

Yesterday I posted a video to Instagram which I felt needed to be longer, because I am momentarily in love with Andrew Bird’s song Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left. So I am posting the song here, along with a slideshow of more Duplicate and Triplicate drawings.

Two days ago I needed a neckpiece to revive an old dress. So I made this. Alas, I decided not to wear the dress. I will, however, wear this one day. And it has inspired me to follow a new and exciting path. Read More

I finally got my long-awaited package from Bianca: a care pack from a dear friend. Thank you, B. You have made me very happy, appeasing my hunger for mail and my passion for food.

For the past few month, my friend Bianca Simonian’s Almond Kulture was a mere Instagram/Facebook celebrity I adored from afar. I had no idea what it smelled, felt or tasted like. And now it’s here in my home.

Fall in love with Almond Kulture on Instagram or Facebook. Enjoy! Read More

Hooray! The new issue of Canvas Magazine is out! I’m very excited because my interview by Anna Wallace-Thompson is in it. There has been a tiny handful of journalists whose interviews with me I’ve read and not made me cringe and go: who the fuck is this they’ve written about? I’m happy to say that Anna is now a member of that small coterie of writers who actually got me. You can see it here: 10.4_PROFILE_GHADA ALKANDARIRead More
