Jolie Guillebeau – painter, storyteller

Jolie Guillebeau is a painter who tells stories or a story teller through painting and these are her good things.

Good things to read.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This is my favorite book of 2013. I finished it a couple of weeks ago, and immediately turned back to page one and started all over. So good.

Art and Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland. This is the first book I recommend to all of my art students. It’s a quick read that I still go back to when I’m needing a little inspiration.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. A classic. I’ve read it at least 20 times. And I love it every time.

Good things to watch.

Wreck it Ralph. I loved this movie, mostly because of the references to old video games. Who doesn’t love Qbert?

Exit Through the Gift Shop. This documentary about art and commercialism had me thinking for weeks. Plus, I love Banksy’s work.

To Kill a Mockingbird. Favorite movie as well as book. Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. So much win.

Good things to use.

Evernote. I keep my knitting patterns, my notes and journals, my recipes (especially with the new Food app), my to-do lists– everything goes in Evernote. Then I can find them from anywhere.

Whitelines LINK. This paper works perfectly with Evernote and Dropbox. I can sketch or draw then immediately record it digitally– it’s fantastic.

Steven Smith Teas. I’m lucky that his tea is local and easy to find. It’s lovely. My current favorite is Red Nectar, but I also love his chai blend.

Jolie is on Twitter, sharing paintings and more.
