Demons in Spring

Itsah so gloomy outah. I don't know why I'm writing with a so called Italian accent... I'm very tired from trying to finish 2 pieces overnight so I'm a little delirious.

I'm waiting for my copy to arrive, but I found this on a 12ozprophet posted by Cody Hudson, the art director, designer of the book (and artist extraordinaire).

Demons in Spring is a collection of short stories by Joe Meno and some of the proceeds benefit 826CHI. "the book includes art by todd baxter, kelsey brookes, ivan brunetti, charles burns, nick butcher, steph davidson, evan hecox, kim hiorthoy, paul horschemeier, cody hudson, caroline hwang, kozyndan, geoff mcfetridge, anders nilsen, laura owens, archer prewitt, jon resh, jay ryan, souther salazr, rachell sumpter, chris uphues."-from 12ozprophet.

The book looks great and am very humbled to be in the company of such great artists.
my piece-ah!

Pre-Birthday, day of Birth...

Yesterday was my birthday... The night before was the SVA Auction, I started to celebrate it the night before at the auction with yummy hor'derves and cocktails.
Some of my favorite pieces below:
The view from the SVA auction.

The Caterers

Romaine Orthwein

Phoebe Washburn

JeongMee Yeoh

Led up to midnight with cupcakes from Billy's (courtesy of my lovely friend, Lisa).

And just after midnight, I accidently stabbed myself in the thigh with an exacto blade. NOT FUN, but am totally ok. Never thought I would be the kind to get light headed after seeing a wound, but something about seeing your skin gashed open makes you a bit light headed....

Had my birthday dinner at Good Fork in Red Hook, and ohmigod, it was delicious! For the year of 29, I am no longer a vegetarian... I have to stop feeling bad about that...Thanks to Josh, Jenny, Bryn, Lisa, and Heather for making it happen!

mmmmmm is right!

Post birthday drinks coming up this weekend! (Yes, my birthday lasts a total of 5 days)

A wink and a smile

I got a wink in the mail the other day, and it made me smile...

The best winks given by Steve Harrington. We did a trade and he sent me all these goodies!

The thing that I most looked forward to was this book! Co-designed with John Harrington, Steve's brother, its pretty awesome. I love the personal insight.

You know what else is great, these rad pillows on our couch.

Dear and Yonder

Always super psyched when a movie comes out about female surfers, skaters, artists, etc.

Here's a skate movie that's came out by the same production company, Villa Villa Cola, a couple years back.

Boy, oh, boy...

Fashion week here in NY... Always makes me want to spend money on clothes, I can admire from afar.

Boy by Band of Outsiders

The look of Lorick. The clothes, the styling, it looks so great. I especially love the set design.

This is my favorite scene.
