Quick Links

Good morning everyone! Before I get to the links, I wanted to note a couple of things. First, the next few weeks will be a little lighter posting than normal. We’ll still have at least one post a day but we most likely won’t be featuring the usual 3-4. This also means any submission posts you all are waiting on will most likely be delayed, though I’ll do my best to get them up as soon as possible.

Then beginning July 19th (when we will be off on our honeymoon!) and for the next two weeks we will be going about posting a little bit differently. I will be drawing out some of my favorite features from the vaults and checking in to see what those designers, illustrators and artists have been up to lately. I’ll remind you all of this as we get closer. But during that time I will also have little email access, so any comments that need approval, emails or submissions will likely need to wait until August.

And lastly, I mentioned last week that I will be starting a new series on the blog which features discussion topics that will be opened up to you. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for awhile, and now seems like the right time. I had intended on getting the post up last week, but unfortunately that didn’t happen, so the first post in that series will go up first thing tomorrow morning. And depending on the interest, we will either repeat the series biweekly or monthly. So look out for that tomorrow, and now let’s get to the links!
