The phrase “Life of Leisure” makes me both excited and nervous. Living in Portland this month has made me realize how trained I am to fill any free time with work. Meeting got canceled? Schedule a new one! Finished your work early? Start a new project! Sometimes that’s a good thing, but sometimes it means you literally are unable to turn off your work brain and relax. I’ve gotten a little bit better at relaxing this month, but I still get nervous about crossing over some invisible line into “too much leisure time” land. But if a life of leisure is anything like these prints from Valerie and Paul at Tugboat Printshop (click here to see their sneak peek), I might be able to get behind that lifestyle.
Tugboat’s latest line of original prints are all hand-drawn, carved and printed in Pittsburgh and celebrate leisure-time activities like hiking, RV-ing and camping. I was just discussing last night how badly I want to RV across the country, so the print above might be my inspiration for finally taking that trip. Right after I finish some more work . . . xo, grace
More prints after the jump . . .
