5. New Tech City is an interesting podcast I’ve been listening to. They also host a week of Bored and Brilliantchallenges that guide you to less phone time and more creativity. You can start the challenge at any time, and I hope to give it a try some time soon.
SO…… for the past couple of months I’ve been working on a little partnership.
I’m thrilled to announce that my STAY AWESOME print is now being sold EXCLUSIVELY at Urban Outfitters !
Head over and give it a like and or a share if you please!
Sharing a long over due post from my trip to New York last month! I worked, met up with friends, made time for museums and discovered some new favorite restaurant spots. Charlie Bird was my most memorable meal, and will be the place I revisit next time. Their About Us page quotes the Beastie Boys, and I actually have a crush on some fancy ass Zalto wine glasses now.
I also finally managed to get my “been workin on my feet all day tired self” over to Brooklyn for dinner at Diner. It was so lovely and well worth the trip. The menu is written out on the table while the server goes over it. Our server was pretty and had a soothing voice so I zoned out, and had to ask a lot of questions and for repeats.
Made a date at Prune of course…
Being in New York to see Henri Matisse The Cut-Outs at the MoMa was definitely the highlight. The gift shop was selling the scissors seen in my first pic, and I was skeptical, but I have to say…. they are pretty awesome. I plan to get my Matisse on and do some cut-paper-collage work.
The Cooper Hewitt has also recently reopened, and it’s one of my favorite museums. They have interesting exhibits centered around historic and contemporary design and the building itself is stunning.
In 2015 I plan to shift gears a bit, and revisit painting and working on paper. It’s been fun taking some time to create and experiment. The little shapes in this series came about from some ceramic pieces I have in the works. Stay tuned for a few pieces in the Artwork and Ceramics section of my shop!
I looove Valentine’s Day. Not because of boys or dates, but because I love hearts, flowers, the color pink, special food treats, bubbly and wine. In the infamous words of Tom & Donna – TREAT YO SELF!
And here are a few new cards in the works…
I’m so happy that I was in New York during the final days of the Matisse exhibit at the MOMA! It was inspiring and I even got suckered into some paper cutting scissors in the gift shop. These Matisse + Tata Naka mash ups from Miss Moss are so good, and even though the patterns are a little wild, I can’t help but think that at the right event, I could totally rock one. I want one.
