weekend . more flower power and coil upon coil.

here's this weekend's work... continuing the flowering into a full on leisure suit. ... strange but worthwhile, eh? also some 60's textile inspired coiling... i talked out the logistics with my dad-- it can be made, but i won't tell you here, it's a secret. :)

"she's like a rainbow"...

today's sketch is the antithesis of today's surroundings.

i see the bulbs peeking out.... do you?

well this week is pretty cool because.... -

- i see the daffodil bulbs popping out of our rained away snow... too bad we're supposed to get more white tomorrow... ugh. i want warm pronto.

-some of my pieces are in miami being shot for American Salon magazine-- hope my garments end up being used..

-i got in time out new york magazine for looking dumpy yet snazzy... check out the link (
here's the glamour shot from it... read the article to find out all about me!--

my dad also informed me that the ROTC shoes are ACTUALLY 1965 ish... i did know that-- made an error-- oops, sorry dad.

- and i've done some pretty amazing designs these past two days, if i do say so myself... need to find some "shoe people" to help me bring these tottering monster gems to life!
here's today's...

and here's what me and madam mummy space ship smokey smokey are watching and listening to...

this video is great-- i love the setup... pseudo office chairs and heart shaped hair. pretty damn classy.

"...sittin in a boat with a bucket of beer..."

this is what she's thinking about. it's playin in her head.

manic monday i think not

here's some of today's work, and a little ditty i drew up last night.

and here's some inspiration...


MTM's apt.. love the sunken in sitting/sleeping area...


Beatles...from the "help" movie-- more sunken in living spaces...

the beetlejuice cartoon intro-- was OBSESSED when i was little. still am.

the delightful patty and selma

and another childhood/adulthood living situation that some day must be!!!

here's another...

take a look.

shed a tear, wear a hat, and draw an idea -- (Friday)

sorry all of my fellow onlooker/readers for not puttin more up this week. been busy, and hadn't found enough coffee to get me sketching these mornings.-- probly need to wake up around 5:45 instead. -- damn that alarm clock snoozy

well yesterday was equal parts sad and amazing. mr mcqueen died, which is a total shame. -- maybe it's a grand marketing ploy? -- i doubt it tho. he was one of the few current designers that really inspired me.

the good part of the day was going to a "hat show" -- yestadt millinery -- so damn good. the show was so intimate, with gin to fill our belly/brains, and an amazing display of ms. jane's creations. i loved them all. they were sex-less to me; i wanted to not only try them all on, i wanted to own them all.

all in all, yestadt = : ) death = :(

on a different note, here's today's sketch. maybe i'll get some more ideas out today -- we shall see.

dried fruit and babies.

its friday.

ran out of raisins this morning so my oatmeal was extra bland.

this sketch made me feel better. couldn't think of anything in particular, then this little gem popped out of me. it's like i was pregnant and didn't even know it.

here's the song this lady's a jammin to.

snow day.

it's disgusting out. snowy and grey.... gotta wear my leather shoes... wish i could just wear my converse.

today's pic is a throw back to a few months ago-- one of my favorite designs, and shoes.. yay!

also, here's one of my fave. songs/bands. ... can't think of too much, in a rush. (kinda like a rhyme that is.) ... but this song's great... grating and fat.

"'s hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone world..."

thinking about getting warm, tired of all this cold.

here's a little video to make you warmer, and a design that's actually practical. -- a double whammy with no combining thread-- so there.
