I've had a busy week full of launching my newest and most magnificent product to date, the 2015 Art Calendar and live illustrating guests at the Piperlime Spring Preview.  I decided such a productive and exciting week warranted a $20 salad of gluten free, organic, free roaming chicken, home-schooled beets and arugula grown by school children in their collaborative garden on the roof of their upper-east side private girls school.  My favorite place to get such a salad is Cafe Gitane.

beyonce fashion illustration Inslee By Design Inslee Haynes The Sketch Book

So. I don't know about you, but personally, I don't love all the bey-shaming that's going on on Pinterest these days. At first I laughed when I saw that pin and thought nothing of it. But when my yoga teacher told us to meditate on it for a full 75 minute class, I realized I'd had enough. "You have as many hours in the day as Beyonce" was probably meant to be inspiring. But, as someone who can't manage to get through a single to-do list ever, much less run a music empire, that statement is kind of defeating. I...
