A Squidoo Lens on Moleskines

wcichop, chop, whispering crane institute, rick andersonI decided to play around a little further with lens’ on the Squidoo site. This time I am showing some renderings and sketches from my Moleskine notebooks. These Squidoo pages are a pretty quick, easy painless way to promote an idea, thought, process, group of something etc., and get it out to the World.

Publish your information quickly and then point folks that way to get to a specific subject about something your interested in. I also see this as a good way to become “better” at working with web/internet stuff . . . especially for an old guy like me. For you designers this is a easy way, and a more imaginative way to “publish your resume” in a unique way on-line.

Check it out.

I have several pages at Squidoo, just go to the top of this page and hit the WCI/links button, the Squidoo links are at the top. Speaking of — from the Moleskine

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.


  1. I am crazy for your boxy trees! I’m a landscape designer working to better my sketching and colour rendering skills. Coming across your website has been absolutely great, your skills are amazing!!
    My sketching is improving but I am just starting into the colour rendering and am having some difficulty as I am not naturally inclined to really “see” colour. I am really a shape/form/texture kind of girl so am really happy designing with those characteristics, I love a monochromatic green scheme!!!! Having to design perennial beds with lots of bright colours is very challenging to me. However, give me rock, stone and foliage and I am off to the races. Love your website, it’s very inspiring and cool!!
    Thanks! Wendy C
