I Have a Big Announcement!

I'mSoExcited_KellyAngelovic Fall has come to Colorado. Each gust of wind brings a flurry of leaves to the ground. I'm (reluctantly) reorganizing my closet, sending summer dresses to the back, moving my sweaters so they're front and center.

I also just celebrated a birthday, which alongside the changing season, always incites introspection. I've been thinking a lot about the next 5-10 years of my life. About passion. The pursuit of a joy filled life. I've recently (in the past six months or so) taken up a regular meditation practice again (something that had fallen by the wayside with the demanding onset of motherhood).

We live in a crazy, fast paced world. As the mother of two young children, as an artist, as a wife, there is very little time for quiet.

That's where the answer are though--the whispers of your soul.

In the stillness.

I've been getting up 15 minutes earlier than the rest of my household to steal a few private moments with my breath, my soul and my God.

This practice, this space, helps me step outside of the repetitive minutiae of everyday life. To reconnect with myself. To lean into my intuition and find trust in my inner voice.

Amid this stillness, I found the courage to make a big decision. I have something to share with you--and I can hardly wait!! Just a couple more days...

Blessedly Full

Kelly-Angelovic-Sketchbook From my sketchbook


With deadlines looming, it's been a crazy week. A sick kid means sleepless nights (again because of the three year old, not the baby). And the tiny one has decided napping for longer than half an hour at a time isn't his style anymore. So I'm gonna make this short and sweet.

I'm doing some work for Johnny Bregar, a kids' musician whose sound has been described as "...rootsy Americana with a hint of bluegrass." It's music that I enjoy listening to as much as my three year old does.

If you have little ones in the house, definitely check him out. Johnny lives in the greater Seattle area and his next gig is this Memorial Day (May 26th) at the Folklife festival at 11:45am. If that's your neck of the woods, take the whole family!

I did the artwork for Johnny's album Dragonfly a few years ago, and Johnny has commissioned me to to do several illustrations for his new website. So I'm listening to Polly's Rain Dance and Shoo Fly Pie while I sketch.

I have a couple other client projects that I am wrapping up, and I'm working on an editorial piece for Lilla Rogers Bootcamp as well. Though weary and wishing I could hook myself up to a caffeine drip, life is blessedly full and I am grateful.
