A Future Present is a new project that Dylan and I just embarked on. For now, it's a blog that chronicles what goes on in our apartment and workspace. We moved in just under 2 months ago with a lot of space and few possessions, so right now it seems like a never-ending work in progress. In the future we hope to expand AFP into a brand, shop, and possibly studio, with products and projects we design together. For now, I hope you enjoy looking at all our stuff and the things we make!

This is my favorite scarf because it was made from an exact painting. Square-shaped, in color, and all I did was scan it. A lot of the other scarves came from paintings that I assembled or colored digitally, but I love this one the most because it feels so real.

First image by me, second image by Chelsey Pettyjohn
Chelsey and I have had 6 hours of school together every week since the end of August, and at a certain point early-morning mandatory work time grows sluggish. We began sharing reference images, and it was fun to see the similarities and differences of drawing from the same source. Many of our images are of contemporary real-life people, and we had the genius idea to collaborate on an illustrated street style blog. The blog has yet to be realized, but one day it will happen.
Also, I haven't updated this blog in over 2 months because a lot has happened. Dylan moved in with me, I made a bunch of scarves, I did a textile & jewelry project with Kaye Blegvad, and now I'm working on a billion Etsy holiday orders. If you're following me on Instagram you can see bits & pieces of all this stuff since I may not update for another two months!
