Entries in fun (9)


Interviews to come!


Hi, everyone! I haven't been posting as much as I have been trying to work on a lot of things and my time was short! I am dedicating more time to this blog, and have two fun interviews coming up with 3 awesome women!

To give you a sneak peek of one such interview, here are some images of some spectacular murals which my friends Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn created. Jessie and Katey attended college with me at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and they were always incredibly inspiring to me. These artists did not conform to fads and their work has been created out of incredible ingenuity and creativity. Extremely community minded & connected, Jessie received her Masters of Community Art from MICA after we graduated in 2005, and has continued to work with members of the Baltimore community to take once blighted places and turn them into vibrant pieces of art.

You would be hard pressed to find two funnier and creative ladies, I feel super lucky I was able to meet them during my time at MICA!

Here are some photos to whet your appetite for the full interview coming soon!


Tan Vampires | I Found a Body

I am really enjoying the band Tan Vampires and their song I Found a Body. Check it out! One of my favorite discoveries of 2011 :) Check them out on NPR's All Songs Considered blog I am very attached to music and inspired while making art. This song reminds me of a crisp day, a walk in the neighborhood and those first few sips of coffee – waking up! Enjoy the last day of the year.  May it lead to many more, beautiful & healthy days.



Pearl and the Beard on All Songs Considered

As you may remember, a few months ago I posted about my friends band Pearl and the Beard playing a house show at my apartment. It was wonderful, beautiful music and lovely to have my friends passing through and having a sleep over with us! You guys are always welcome here :)

Now it is my pleasure to let you know that their video for their song "The Lament of Coronado Brown" was debuted on NPR's All Songs Considered last Friday the 4th (also my Dad's 70th Birthday!!) Here is there video, follow the link and buy their albums, they're great.




Fall Flea!


I was so excited to participate in Columbus, Ohio's Fall Flea benefiting the Mid Ohio Food Bank this past Sunday. There were so many amazing vendors & we were able to meet a bunch of really great people throughout the event. Thank you to everyone who came to Justin and my tent and purchased artwork, clothing and books! It was really fun to see people enjoying my prints and Justin's photography. What a great weekend! :)


Palm Springs & Los Angeles long weekend

We headed out to my friends Lindsey Mortensen & Hrishikesh Hirways wedding in Palm Springs last week. It was amazing!! I cannot wait to post more photos, check back soon! :)
