Devoting yourself to architecture is like entering a religious order. You must consecrate yourself, have faith, and give. As a just reward, architecture will bring a special happiness to those who have given her their whole being. This happiness is a sort of trance that comes with radiant birth after the agonies of labor. It is a power of invention, of creation which allows man to give the best that is in him to bring joy to others, the everyday joy found only in the home.

Le Corbusier

It’s raining in NYC. It’s the middle of August.  Of course, you need something to do. Well, you can go to one of NYPL’s branches for free programs or to check out books (or you can download an eBook from home). Or you can … sketch a kitten. That’s what this cigarette card from between 1928 and 1934 is supposed to be teaching - how to sketch a kitten. The back of the card - found in the Library’s George Arents Collection - includes barely helpful instructions, such as, “First, it would be advisable to try action sketches before details such as the head; these should be made as quickly as possible, trying to retain in the mind the principle lines suggesting the movement.” Got it? Great. Happy Caturday!

How to sketch a kitten. Thanks, NYPL!

Me: You received the invoice I sent last week for the designs?

Client: Yes, but I don’t see why I should have to pay.

Me: You hired me to design them, you signed a contract, agreed to the spec, and signed off on completion when I handed over the designs.

Client: Yes I signed a contract, but I thought the designs were just to keep me motivated.

Me: Motivated to do what?

Client: Think about paying you, I guess. 

Education, of course, is always based on what was. Education shows you what has been and leaves you to make the deduction as to what may be. Education as we pursue it cannot prophesy, and does not. Frank Lloyd Wright, who would have been 145 today. (via explore-blog)

You think it’s right to charge us for things just because we don’t have the ability to do them? Client response to my hourly design fee in an invoice.  (via clientsfromhell)

Happy 82nd birthday to Jasper Johns!
From our website: In the 1950s Jasper Johns developed a distinctive painting style that would help lead American art away from the then-dominant movement of Abstract Expressionism. The exact correspondence of figure and ground in his work challenged the traditional distinction between an object and its depiction. At the same time, variations on each theme dissolved the “natural” link between the symbol and its meaning. Johns thus questioned the basic underpinnings of our representational system, and specifically the mechanisms of fine art.
