Embarking on a seven month journey of world travel seems like a very exhilarating and thrilling experience to most. The opportunity to see the world, learn new things and fill your brain with countless memories that will stay with you for the rest of your years sounds like a pretty sweet deal. Imagine doing it alone, truly taking the time for yourself to learn not only about the world, but about who and what you want to be. With a lifelong passion for traveling, that is what Samantha Petrie did. After becoming accustomed to the typical 9-5 routine, Sam opted out for some time to explore and think about her next steps. As a result, Clover Artisans was born. A way to give a glimpse into and celebrate other cultures around the globe, Clover Artisans provides economic empowerment to the artisans behind the goods.

Issue 08 Cover Artist Spotlight

We were beyond stoked when artist Shea Conlan agreed to creating our cover art for issue 08. We allow our cover artists to freely create with only a few guidelines so we were anxious to see the result! We couldn’t be happier with how the final cover came out.

Just like us, Shea is inspired by nature. “I’m entranced by the intricate, repetitive patterns of nature; it’s what attracted me to drawing in the first place,” says Shea. “There’s something so soothing in drawing the lines and grooves of nature’s patterns – something meditative. As I continue to focus on the fine details of nature, I notice more and more small patterns that repeat themselves over and over everywhere I look. It makes me feel a deep connection to the universe, and gives me faith that there is some sort of organization to the chaos.”

Playlist // November

HELLO, NOVEMBER.

Some long November drives have created the need for many a car playlist (obviously), so we decided to compile some of our favorites from this month (so far) into a little playlist for you to enjoy. Since driving brings about all of the moods and therefore the need for all of the music related feels (think: happy-hey-let’s-dance songs to sad and mellow i-need-to-stare-out-the-window-into-the-Delaware-abyss-er-chicken-fields songs), we’ve got quite a mix here for you. From artists like First Aid Kit and Passenger to The Assist and Lauv, there’s something for all of y’all. Since it’s only mid-November, the list is only destined to grow throughout the remaining weeks of the month. You’re welcome.
