collaborate with Giuseppi and the Top Shelf crew again next time, and make it in for some cool loot.
Whew...I love this time of year, but breathe a huge sigh of relief that October is over. This has been an exhausting month.

graphics for Artifaktori, but an Artifaktori funk party is even better. Atwood's tavern will be groovin to the funky beats of the Nephrok Allstars that's their front man, and my pal, Nephtaliem on the poster) on October 30th for a full costumed Funk Extravaganza. If you're in the Boston area, please feel free to join the party! I will be there, although I still havent decided whether Im taking my style cues from David Bowie or Bootsy Collins. Either way, I have a feeling I will end up in an afro and lots of glitter....

Poster design by Susan Williams
Illustrations by Amanda Williams (and very much inspired by Mr. Quentin Blake)
I always enjoy collaborating with my parents on projects (Dad's and illustrator and Mom's a graphic designer), and the marketing material for ABRHS' The Witches, by Roald Dahl, was no different. Growing up in their studio, Ive certainly soaked up a lot of my Dad's quirky aesthetic and Mom's sense of balance and color, so we have a sort of design ESP thing going on most of the time.
Besides doing illustrations for the poster, I've also been designing the costumes (so much fun and so much work!) with Mom as my "assistant" and I cannot tell you how many times we would pick up something at the same time and say "how bout this?" Guess the apple doesnt fall far from the tree?
Can't believe the show is opening in a week! If you're in the Boston area, check it out. The AB team puts on quite a show and for you fashion fanatics, the costumes are a winking nod to the 1960's. Ill try to grab some pics at dress rehearsal this week :)

dream closet" section is all about....an ode to the pieces I have been lucky enough to score, and a style journal for the ones I dream up (....and perhaps one day I will make them....when I have extra time, and money and learn how to sew, haHA).
